Following on the great success of San's Place in Umdloti on the KZN North Coast, San has opened a penthouse situated in historic Simon's Town on the Cape Peninsula.
Simon's Town is situated on the False Bay coast of the warm Indian Ocean. This charming historical town is a firm favourite with both local and international tourists.
Boulders Beach is just south of the town and boasts the unique African Penguin colony. A boardwalk takes tourists to Foxy Beach where one can swim with the penguins.
Southern Right Whales, present from June to November, offer the visitor amazing sightings both from the shore and from boats that depart from the town jetty.
Simon's Town Penthouse offers the very best views of Simonstown from the deck of the penthouse. There are fantastic sea views from the bedrooms.
