A perfect place for us four with enough space for everybody. The lovely cottage is located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood with beach, shops and restaurants in walking distance. We enjoyed staying in a light, clean, very well kept and equipped house with a breathtaking view. Thank you for a great stay. Hope to be back!

Mermaid Rock Cottage is well equipped and maintained. I enjoyed the easy walk to Simon's Town harbour and restaurants. I spent many hours gazing at the magnificent view across False Bay from the deck. Special for me was the close access to the penguins. Next time I will return and hope to see how the bouganvilleas have grown. Thank you Elspeth for a great stay !
