About Harbour House

Welcome to the peace and tranquility of our little piece of Paradise.

Our charming loft accommodation is comfortable, spacious and cool, and is located in a quiet cul-de-sac, on a hillside overlooking False Bay, in the famous picturesque village of Simon’s Town. It has its own private entrance and breath-taking panoramic views over the ocean, with Long Beach on one side and False Bay Yacht Club with the historic naval harbour on the other.

Harbour House is situated in the much sought-after old part of Simon’s Town. Unlike most accommodation in the area, it is within easy walking distance of excellent restaurants, fascinating museums, the famous penguin colony at Boulders and the train station to Cape Town. There are two beautiful sandy beaches just minutes away, and from September to November you may be fortunate enough to see whales from the apartment. Local activities include sailing, fishing, golf, diving and mountain walking. It is also possible to rent kayaks and bicycles in the village.

This self-catering apartment has a comfortably furnished living area with a dining table and chairs, upholstered sofa and armchairs and DSTV television. It also has two single divan beds should they be needed. There is a fully-equipped kitchen with stove, micro-wave, refrigerator and washing machine. The large bedroom has a queen-sized bed and outstanding sea views. The well-appointed bathroom has both a bath and shower. Outside there is a small terrace with braai facilities where one can enjoy breakfast and watch the sun rise over beautiful False Bay. You have the use of a large lawned garden and can relax in the shade of the olive trees on hot days.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Harbour House. Ros made sure that we felt very welcome with breakfast supplies and gorgeous flowers and even a bottle of wine. The view is stunning. We would definitely stay here again when visiting the area. Thank you Ros, you made our little break a great one.

Such a comfortable, serene and homely accommodation venue. Idyllic setting overlooking the Mediterranean-style Simon's Town harbour and False Bay coastline. We even joked with the friendly owners that we'd like to buy the space. An attic apartment set up in a way that you're hardly aware of the owners occupying the main house just below. Really good bank for your buck!

What a wonderful five days we spent at Harbour House, Simons Town. Ros was the perfect host and the apartment was just as described, immaculate and with staggering views over the Bay and Naval Base. Very safe and secure and a stone's throw from the charming village of Simons Town. We will definitely be making a return soon.

Very comfortable and spacious enough for all four of us. The pics on website is exactly what it looks like - which is very nice ( usually pics better than actual, but not the case here). Harbour House definitely met our expectations. Ros also thought of all the little things that added to the comfort e.g. hairdryer, and "starter goodies" in the fridge. We will definitely recommend Harbour House - and stay there again! Thanks again, Ros.Regards The Mac Gillicuddy'sJohannesburg

Harbour House is worth the best recommendations! We really enjoyed our stay there. The apartment and the facilities were very good and the service from Ros and Paul Follet was outstanding. The view from the windows and the terrace was breathtaking.Bosse, Kersti and Jonatan Davén from Sweden
