Verified reviewvery good

Plumbago Cottage is on a very quiet residential street, very close to Boulders Beach, and a short drive from Simon's Town itself. The cottage is very spacious, clean and well kept. Very quiet at all times. Positives - Location, cleanliness, quiet, comfortable, good value for money. Negatives - Some kitchen equipment old (although everything in good working order). Very few drinking glasses, some plates, etc. not very clean at time of our visit. The only major problem that we experienced was lack of internet, even though the cottage's website advertised its availability when we booked. The owner was waiting for the ISP to connect the service during our stay. It would have been nice to have been informed of the situation before arrival.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here with my family, albeit 17 years apart. The house is quite basic, but it has everything required. It is ideally located to allow for easy access to Cape Town and the surrounding areas. We definitely stay there again.
