Nautilus Lodge is a highly recommended property providing self catering in Fish Hoek for tourists visiting the False Bay region.

About Nautilus Lodge

Nautilus Lodge offers truly unparalleled views of Fish Hoek beach, Sunny Cove and the blue expanse of False Bay encircled by the Hottentots Holland Mountains.

Nautilus Lodge lies perched over Jager's Walk - known locally as "The Cat Walk" - which is a scenic path built right on the rocks at the water's edge. A five minute stroll beside the sea will take you from Sunny Cove and it's tiny railway platform, to Fish Hoek beach and on to the village centre.


Nautilus Lodge offers self-catering apartments, comprising of one and two bedrooms. The open plan kitchens are fitted with microwave and convection ovens, three plate hobs, fridge / freezer, dishwashers and washing machines. The kitchens are also stocked with the necessary utensils, crockery and cutlery. Linen is provided and both apartments are serviced once per week when they are cleaned and linen is changed.

The well appointed, sunny lounges (with multi-channel television) lead straight through large sliding doors onto the private balconies fronting the apartments. Nautilus Lodge offers truly unparalleled views of Fish Hoek beach, Sunny Cove and the blue expanse of False Bay.


The shallow, protected waters of False Bay are ideal for swimming and water sports, and ultimately for False Bay's more famous visitors, the Southern Right Whales. These gentle creatures arrive in June to calve and mate; and nurse their young until their departure in November. The familiar sight of a whale tail brings whale lovers crowding onto the rocks at Sunny Cove, eager to observe these giant mammals literally only metres away. A nocturnal sound familiar to guests of Nautilus Lodge is the heavy, echoing breathing of the whales wallowing close to the protective shores!

Fish Hoek beach has an uninterrupted 1.5 km stretch of sand, perfect for beach walks.

There are many rock pools directly in front of Nautilus Lodge, suitable for paddling and shell collecting and a rock pool known by the locals as "Skelly" which is deep enough for swimming at High Tide. During the season, exclusion nets are put up daily at about 9am and are taken down again in the late afternoon.

Fish Hoek lies south-east of Cape Town and north of Cape Point. Cape Town is a 30 minute drive away or one hour by train. The entrance to Cape Point Nature Reserve is a mere 20 minutes drive away. Fish Hoek is ideal as a base from which to explore the Cape Peninsula and its towns, while the famous wine estates of Stellenbosch are an easy day trip away.


Nautilus Lodge is a non-smoking establishment.

NAUTILUS.......JUST A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH. My partner, Dennis Keet and I have visited Nautilus on several occasions. From the time we were welcomed by our friendly hostess, Jean, the mood was utterly romantic and tranquil. Nautilus is a place where you can just relax, unwind and recharge your soul with positive energy. The suite we have stayed in has always been beautifully appointed and comfortably prepared for our arrival. The fresh linen and facilities have been spotless and comparible with any 5 star hotel we have stayed in. There is every convenience with an open plan kitchen in which you can prepare a delicious meal. The view of the bay around Fish Hoek is breathtaking to say the least. Pods of dolphins pass by on their way to Muizenberg and we saw a few seals frolicking in the ocean which is just meters below the spacious balcony below our suite. The early morning sunrises are better than those I have experienced on the Greek Islands or the Mediterainean holiday resorts. During our stays we have spent most of our time just lounging around in our suite or taking a strole on the romantic catwalk which winds its way around the coastline close by. I could go on infinitum about this really special holiday accommodation. I would urge you to take some time out and visit Nautilus so you and your family can discover for yourselves this little piece of heaven in the deep south of the Cape Peninsula. Finally, I would like to thank Jean for her superb hospitality and making our stays at Nautilus a euphoric dream come true. Lots of love, Rodney Brown and Dennis Keet.

Nautilus Lodge is a wonderfully welcoming, perfectly located home away from home. With stunning views of the bay, and comfortable, spacious accommodations, it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful area. It is well-managed, and information about the region is readily available. The lodge is adjacent to a lovely walking path that takes you right into Fishhoek and the local beach. It is a very convenient location for day trips to see penguins, Cape Town, or Cape Point. Jean is the perfect host!
