Additional Location Information

Our daughter Laura loves to go to the little beaches near the house and also swim with the penguins at Boulders beach. The town itself with its ancient British air and colourful buildings is charming and has several restaurants, cafe's and nice shops. Mary also loves a bit of "city live" so we are also not so far to be able to enjoy the rest of the sightings, top notch restaurants, concerts and shops that have made Cape Town a great holiday destination, but we are still able to sleep, wake up and relax in a tranquil (and not very windy) spot, overlooking amazing sea views.

Pingushouse is at:
