Peace and quiet
We are charmed with the light, clean, pretty cottage, so quietly tucked in, off the main road of Simon's Town. As the weather was so pleasant, we could make use of the terrace and enjoy the morning breeze with a view of the sea.
Karon was exremely helpful (with an extra reading lamp for the one bedroom) and Gina was there to welcome us warmly.
A friendly, warm experience!
A very cosy cottage
The Mermaid Cottage is a very cosy place to stay in Simons Town. We really enjoyed our stay and it was close to the pinguins and restaurants. Elspeth and Barry were both very helpful and I could recommend this cottage very much.
Great Location. Quiet in the Wintertime. Short walk to view the penguins at Boulders Beach. Beautiful sunrise over the bay. We enjoyed breakfast at the Lighthouse Cafe. We used the clothes washing machine and hung our clothes outside on the line to dry. Two bathrooms with bathtubs and no standup shower. I haven’t taken a bath sitting in the tub since I was a child. The electric wall heater in one bedroom did not work. We enjoyed meeting Barry at arrival but I have never before had to pay a security deposit in cash. Using a credit card was not available. We didn’t have water one day because of a water main break in town. We experienced load shedding in Johannesburg and decided that no water was worse than no electricity. This is Africa was our reaction. Our 3 night stay here was part of a 3 week vacation across Southern Africa visiting family.
Matt thanks so much for useful feedback I'll get the electric wall heater checked, there is a stand up shower in the en suite bathroom. Pleased you found Barry helpful and managed the cash security deposit rather than by bank transfer. Pity about load shedding and no water, you're right this is Africa!
Breathtaking views from a peaceful oasis
We had a fantastic stay. We felt immediately at home. The cottage is located on a small quiet residential road. It has magnificent views, especially from its sun terrace - a perfect place to relax and read a book. Bookshelves filled with a good selection of books were much appreciated.
WIFI and Netflix were just the icing on the cake for our screen dependent teenager but the WiFi was also very helpful for the adults to connect on WhatsApp. Barry, who welcomed us at the property was very friendly and chatty. We truly loved the property and we would definitely love to stay there again on our next trip to Cape Town.
Its really lovely you relaxed and enjoyed yourselves and I do hope the Cottage may welcome you again in the near future. Yes Barry is helpful, he's Ace!
Great Location in Simon's Town
We had a great stay at the cottage! It was within walking distance to Boulder's Beach and the little shops. The views are spectacular! And Barry made our stay even better with great recommendations and hospitality. We would definitely love to stay here again if we ever get the chance to return :)
I'm so pleased you enjoyed the views I love them too.
