Gorgeous property, great value for money. Perfect Location with amazing views of the ocean and mountains. Staff was very warm and helpful. Extremely clean property, we were 100% satisfied. The small blankets on the veranda was a nice touch:)

High against the mountain above Simon's Town, overlooking False Bay, is nestled one of the most beautiful guest houses in South Africa. From the minute we stepped into the lounge and patio area, my wife and I were in awe of the views. Our room (Sunrise Suite) has its own patio next to the rim flow pool. The room is... More

The location and the house itself is very beautyful. The view from the bedroom "Moonpath" and from the poolarea was breathtaking. Breakfast was standard. The negative was that a woman (didn't know her name because she didn't introduce herself) demand our payment very briefly. Didn't ask how our stay was and we didn't recieve any "good Bye".

This property is not suitable for a handicapped person. There is very limited help with carryimg the luggage on steep outside stairs. There is no safety reeling. There is no fridge in the room for a chilled glass of wine. Glasses are provided . There is a lot of attention to superficial detail in the decor. But the layout and... More

If we had known how spectacular this accommodation is, we would have stayed longer. Unfortunately we had already booked our next B&B. Aqua Terra is pure luxury: the room with balcony, the living-room with fireplace and the pool (which we didn't use because of our short stay) and sun room. Everything was perfect: breakfast, the service. I was given a... More

We loved the Aqua Terra, lovely rooms. The breakfast was wonderful, so fresh and smartly presented. Loved the views from our balcony and also from the B&B lounge and dining room. Efficient friendly staff.. Able to walk each morning along the sea front from this location, past the golf course to boulders beach, Penguins and huge boulders, fantastic.

We arrived and waited for over three hours as the B&B was closed and the manager was out. She said we had cancelled and wasn't expecting us but Booking.com confirmed we had a valid booking. There was no acceptance of any mistake on the managers part and her attitude was very cold and indifferent. After another hour or so and... More

What a beautiful place. The view and the lodge are incredible. Our room is huge and the furnishings are so comfortable and of high quality, what a find. We were greeted with such friendliness and have been made to feel really comfortable. We will be back.

This is a wonderful location, a great house with impeccable decoration. Great views from the terrace and the room. Val and the team made our stay absolutely comfortable. Highly recommended if you don't mind Simon's Town to be somewhat away from Cape Town.

We arrived there late at night in one of these pitch dark African nights. Val, the manager had called half the world to find out where we were. It was simply due to the bike race next day and a lot of closed roads which delayed our arrival. Sounded like Val was much more concerned than we were. What a... More
