I wanted a place to sleep before continue my vacation. Ann and Derek and the lovely place made me feel so good I had to stay another night before driving on. I still remember sitting looking at the sea. I went for a morning walk and met a very nice capetownian family who had driven down to the cliffs to... More

First of all this is not a B&B, its an extension of the owners home and hearts. The owners Anne and Derick are so welcoming and friendly we couldn't help befriending them. By the time we left we felt like family. Upon arrival we were welcomed with friendly smiles and open arms. Anne arranged flowers and bubbly for my better... More

Not only is it a gorgeous room with a first class view of the bay right out the window (there were whales one morning), but Derek and Ann have been exceptionally helpful, kind and friendly. Easy walk into town for all the available activities, beautiful area, and great breakfasts! Highly recommend.

Froggy Pond is run by Derek and Annie who are the most wonderful people you could wish to meet. The property has one of the best views in the whole of the Cape and is in walking distance of the Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach. A short drive takes you to both Simons Town and the Cape of Good Hope... More

We stayed at Froggy pond for 2 nights in August. We arrived in torrential rain but even this did not spoil our impression of the b and b. The view from our room was amazing overlooking False bay. We did not have our own transport so Derek took us to the local take- away and waited while we bought our... More

We could not have chosen a better place to stay. Derek & Annie were very enjoyable hosts. The room was very clean and well cared for with plenty of amenities. As far as the breakfast they served - the quality and quantity were over the top. And best of all, their prices were more than reasonable. Thank you for a... More

It was our first proper ‘mother and daughter’ vacation after my divorce. I chose Simon’s Town to be away from the hussle and bussle of Mother City. AND Froggy Pond B&B made our holiday so special and amazing. The guest house is literally across a beautiful beach, with amazing views – sunrise and sunset. The Boulders Beach, a child’s paradise...

A great find. Derek and Annie are wonderfully welcoming hosts and make you feel like part of the family with just the right balance of privacy in the separate flatlet and entertainment. The cooked breakfast brought to you on the terrace is a lovely idea. Good views, walkable to Simon's Town and just across from the beach. We will certainly... More

In a peaceful garden with lovely views across False Bay, this pleasent cottage is run as a B&B by owners Derek and Annie. They are both charming and helpful, suggesting restaurants, walks and their service in every way they can. Breakfast was a wonderful start to the day sitting on the verandah with beautiful views!

We spent two nights at this B&B in August 2010 Derek and Annie are perfect hosts and what a superb place to stay with wonderful view and so close to the sea. We will be going back for 3 nights now in November. Simonstown has a wonderful village feel and yet its still close enough to all that Cape Town... More
