Our hosts are friendly and the rooms are exceptional. The room has exceptional views of False Bay with the sun greeting you from the East in the morning. An absolute restful place. Everything you need to recharge your batteries.

The location of Port of Call in Simon's Town is excellent and the view from the room was breathtaking. The decor was lovely and the room was spotless. Breakfast was delicious. I will definitely stay here again.
