Every year, for the past 2 years we have stayed at Felsensicht. We were met on arrival, made to feel very welcome and shown all the facilities. The modern rooms are beautifully decorated and the kitchen & lounge have all the mod cons required to make any stay a pleasant one. This tranquil house is set upon the mountainside and has panoramic sea views. A gem in Simon's Town.

The house was great!. We stayed for 1 week. The bed was very comfortable. The house was very clean and user friendly. The internet was a bonus. The deck was a great place to relax with a beautiful view. We would sit out there and watch and hear the whales. We woke to a beautiful sunrise daily. It was close to town where we enjoyed many good restaurants. Be careful of the penguins when driving, especially in the evening. Wish we would have stayed longer. Would love to go back. I would definitely recommend this house. Gail was a pleasure to talk to.
