“Perfect holiday home!”

Reviewed 18 May 2013

We were recommended The Milestone by a family who lives in the area. What a treat! The home is located on the main road in Simon's Town, but as you walked down the beautifully manicured walkway, the road noise is drowned out completely and you find yourself in a lovely courtyard surrounded by gardens. We were then graciously greeted by the owner who explained about the house and then about things to do in the surrounding areas, taking particular note to find out what our 7 yr old was interested in seeing and doing while there. The home is perfect for families with three large bedrooms and a sleeping porch, large living a dining area, two full bathrooms and a nice sized kitchen. We found everything we could possibly need in the rooms including books on the area but the best thing about the house has to be the view. First struck as we walked in the front door, the ocean and mountains behind are in full view through large windows on the back wall. Once again, beautiful gardens around the house lead to a sloping lawn that leads to the rocky coast of the ocean. My son was delighted to be able to 'run' out the back door and spent most of the time there climbing on the rocks looking for rock dassies and lizards. The home was perfect. The location is perfect. Thirty minutes from Cape Town and about twenty minutes to Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope National Park, but most importantly just five minutes down the road from Boulder Beach home of the african penguins! One morning we were having coffee on the deck and spotted some dolphins swimming by, and hour and a half later they were still swimming by playing with the seals right in front of us! Amazing! We then spent the day in the wine region and were back in time for dinner on the deck. From our first e-mail with the owner, the process of booking the home was seamless and hassle free. We would highly recommend The Milestone for anyone visiting the Cape Town area and would definitely visit again.

“the most beautiful chrming place”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2013

Honestly Mile stone is the most beautiful places that I stayed in all my travels tranquility and beauty of nature and the marvelous Ocean, birds and animals gives the place special charm I was scared because the information and images which do not give the place its value that I can t described Not to mention the cottage, which is very cozy and beautiful and wide with three rooms with amazing views and provides with all what you need it has lovely kitchen and heating every room and alarm system once the company attended to us one men in minutes when the alarm ring while we are trying to set it also near to the cottage all what you need from the grocery store restaurant, beauty salon and the country club and the roads along Ocean where you can take along walk and close to Cape of good Hope and ostrich Farm and more importantly Boulder Beach where sweet african penguins where we get there walking from the cottage also taxi companies are available If you do not have your own car to visit cape town city and Ms. alida the owner of the house remain one of the amazing people I've ever met she received us and visited us to say goodbye and return the refundable balance without any delay she helped us in many things a really hope to return to this place and stay months and visit Ms. alida

“Some things in life are beyond heaven”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2013

The Milestone is one of those things. It starts with the warm and overwhelming welcome by alida Croudance. She knows what a six person family with young boys need to do, where to go, where to eat and where to have fun. And having said that. The venue itself is a never want to leave paradise. Great ocean view with all that comes with it. And just 5 minutes away... golf on the cutting edge of the ocean, Boulderbeach, restaurants with tasty fingerlickin'food. The terrace at The Miliestone offers a braai so if you buy some fresh fish in Simonstown... with a great local wine. Things can not go wrong. The Milestone is one of those heavens on earth. And since our first visit the Cockram family is sort of habitues... every other year.

“Magical experience in a unique holiday getaway”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2011

We have stayed at the Milestone on a few occasions and it is always a fabulous experience - stunning location and wildlife at your door! Alida is the perfect host, always keen to offer help and advice on things to do.

“My favorite place in the whole world”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2011

The Milestone is just one of those places that no picture or words can do it justice. You have to go and experience it for yourself. It has the most magnificent sea view, with penguins and dassies roaming in the garden. Romantic sunsets, dramatic moonlit evenings. The most beautiful big rocks at the seaside where one can just sit and absorb the beauty around you. Talk about a little seaside cottage! It cannot be closer to the sea or will be in the sea. Alida the owner is a kind friendly person. She is very particular about detail, like freshly picked flowers from her own garden in the rooms of the house. Alida is also very consurned about the comfort of her quests. If you have stayed at the Milestone once, you would want to go back again and again and again.

“Honeymoon Hideaway”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2011

My husband and I stayed here at "Milestone" on our Honeymoon. We got married on a nearby beach, Boulders Beach! We enjoyed our stay at Milestone!! It was a lovely place to stay, comfortable with wonderful sea views!!! We saw Jackass penquins, seals out on a far boulder, Dassies sunbathing on a rock near the cute!! The Baboons were amazing! They would come down from the hills mid-morning. We had one climb down a drain pipe and sit on the table outside looking at us through the the lounge window!!! As the baboon left, it left us a steaming present on the table!!! A very funny experience!!!! We had a GREAT time at Milestone! We would reccomend it!!!!!

“A perfect place to stay!”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2011

If you like the gentle sounds of the ocean lapping at your feet, if you like watching a troupe of penguins hanging out while you drink your coffee from the patio, if you like watching the whales playing on top of the water and the dassies marching each morning across your lawn Then this is the place to be. You can walk to the Boulders or for a little exercise enjoy a 15 minute walk to the heart of Simons Town,

"The Milestone" was the best holiday accomodation I have ever had in my lifetime. The house was spacious, well-equipped and on the ocean... we could listen to the waves, watch some penguins on the rocks and look for whales right on our deck..this accomodation was "world class" ..

“Absolutely wonderful!”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2011

What an absolutely wonderful stay! The location was perfect - right on the water, peace and quiet, yet easily accessible via our rental car to town and all the destinations that we wanted to visit. The Milestone is just perfect and even better than it looks in the photos! We loved it so much that we extended our stay for a few days and will certainly be back. The owner, Alida, makes the place a true home away from home with her thoughtfulness and attention to detail. Every need was anticipated and we were welcomed like family. Alida had fresh flowers and everything was there, ready at our fingertips - from folding chairs for the deck to picnic supplies to everything needed to ensure a comfortable stay. Thank you again for a truly special visit. Our family travels often and this is certainly one of our top stays. We will be definitely return.
