The view was amazing and the couple managing the house Amanda and Harold were just so special that their great energy, attention and stories just made the place. The breakfast was also very good. :) You can walk from there to a couple of places and there are few nice restaurants close by walking to the center..about 10m. We would really like to stay there again.

Excellent if a little quirky property right at Boulders Beach. At the car park there is a sign telling you to look for penguins under your car when you start off in the morning. I did - and there were.

Located in the safest area of Simon’s Town, Penguinden offers stunning views of the magic False Bay and Boulders Beach is within walking distance.
really loved the stay in Penguin den.. it’s like a healing stay for me, with tranquil peaceful environment and people, I really literally fell in love with this cozy house. the view from the royal suite was superbly beautiful, every morning I woke up with awe of sunrise, pink clouds, playful birds around the hill, and in the evening I saw the Milky Way in the sky. my heart was filled with love and happiness, just seeing and staying in the room alone. It was like a heaven… I think Penguin den is a place for being productive, reflective, recovering for anyone who wants have time for themselves. John is super lovely kind guy, I even met Stefano, these guys make the place more special. I really appreciate to their kindness and treat me like a friend, I had hard time during my trip in Cape Town and they mentally saved me a lot. thank you John & Stefano.

The apartment was really clean with everything you need. The view from the balcony was wonderful. The nice thing also is that during loadshedding we could watch tv and use wifi. The owner was very friendly and helpful. It was my second time there and I could definitely come back again :)

This property was perfect for our stay. it was clean and comfortable. It had a lovely sea view and it was walking distance to see the penguins and Simons Town.
Lovely locals and felt very safe here. Fantastic spot for shopping and earthing and drinking. Drive to Cape Point and surrounding coast is amazing. A little noisy late evening and early morning due to comings and goings with deliveries etc.
If you are looking for a peaceful place to entertain younger kids without the big commercial rush of the bigger more popular areas in Cape Town, I recommend Simons Town. So much to do with younger kids who enjoy the outdoors without the rush of a lot of people around you.
as a local here, I will never tire myself of visiting this beautiful place. There is such a quaintness about the architecture and the scenic views of the harbour and sea are breathtakingly beautiful. You will find your peace here. The locals are friendly and the beaches unspoiled. Love it!
Very interesting town, quite scenic with marvellous shops. Great for a 2-day stay, and as a base to visit the Cape of Good Hope, with its superb beaches (Buffels Bay is marvellous). The penguin beach nearby is fascinating
If you want to get away from the busy city life, Simon's Town is a lovely port town where everything is easily accessible by foot and connected with safe pedestrian pathways. Aside from lovely beaches and the famous penguin colony, the town has quite a few museums and have a variety of restaurants. It is in close proximity to a number of other small coastal towns, Cape Point Nature Reserve and other tourist attractions (wine farms, breweries, etc.). The 'Scratch Patch' is a true gem for children and adults alike. There is also a mall and medical centre on the edge of the town which is convenient if you forgot anything important or need medication.
Simons Town is a safe location not far from Cape Town and near the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Thus, it is a good location for those who would like to explore both the Cape Town and Cape Peninsula. In addition, it is simply a nice place to stay, with beautiful nature, mountains, a sea view, and a penguin colony. It also offers reasonable accommodation prices, which makes it a good alternative place to stay for the tourists.
The hosts, Lizette and Tom are the most welcoming and lovely people. There were flowers and chocolate waiting for me in the room, which was well-equipped with a kettle, microwave oven etc. The setting is very pretty and location ideal = penguins are within walking distance! I'm very glad I decided to choose this place as a starting point of my Southern African exploration. I think it was much better to come here instead of going directly to Cape Town's hustle and bustle.
The staff at Tintswalo Boulders were very attentive and we appreciated the explanations given. My husband said the omelet for breakfast was the best he ever had. I particularly liked that it feels like a (guest) house that feels cozy and intimate. You can't ask for a better location at Boulders with stunning views of False Bay. A great feature is the ability to access the boardwalks for a late afternoon/or early morning walk to see the penguins.
The location was great - we really liked staying just outside of Simon's Town. It was a nice and more relaxing break than staying in Cape Town. The unit is very cute and we felt at home. We were able to visit the penguins just a couple of miles away several times and also an easy drive to Cape of Good Hope. The view is beautiful and the breakfast was good, the hosts were welcoming.
What a rare gem this guesthouse is! Everything was perfect: great views, comfy bed, spotlessly clean with good sanitation protocols during COVID, a wonderful breakfast and lots of little touches and extras that are not common at this price point. Best place we stayed in during our entire South Africa trip!
Like the feel of the House Real French touch you feel like you in different country specially for me that's from Cape Town. There is no words to describe this place just Fabulous.. Thank you too William and his Staff I will definitely come very soon...
The bed and pillow were as confortable as a five star hotel or maybe more .. obviously I cannot forget how our host was friendly and such a nice person.. always with good advices (he gave us the main information to have a good gastronomic experience)
The room was perfect, clean with an amazing view to the sea and even to the penguins on the beach. The staff was welcoming and very generous and the location is the best. Totally recomended when visiting Simon's Bay.
fantastic views and a beautiful house. Our room was lovely I loved the breakfast after the last few hotel breakfast we’ve had this was much better.
The view was amazing. And the fact that its located near best kept secret of Cape town. She was one call away to help everytime we needed her.
It’s really central to where we like to go in Cape Town. Feels like home. Well decorated and always clean with so many facilities
the hotel is charming and lovely, and located right on the water near the entrance to the Boulders Beach penguin reserve.
It was 5 star rating. Our hostess, Carmen was friendly and ready to answer any questions we had about the surroundings.
The hotel was excellent value for money. the staff were super friendly and helpful. the manager Emma is excellent
Tranquility at its best . Perfect location including breath taking sceneric views. Very spacious too.
I keep going to the this hotel because of the staff and location..
