It is a bit tricky to find Aqua Terra high up in the hills, but it's totally worth the effort. The place has a magical quality to it, with a peaceful and serene vibe. The view is spectacular, and the staff is very helpful and attentive, with a genuine interest in their guests. The big breakfast is superb, with a...

All of the staff were very friendly and hospitable. They went out of their way to make our stay very comfortable. Happy to arrange taxi transfers into Simons Town for evening meals. Relaxing and stylish accommodations.

First let's be frank, this is not an hotel it's a guest house. Once you understand this you will know what to expect. The rooms range from full luxury front facing room with private patio and access to pool to lower rooms with sea view. All rooms have tea and coffee facilities and air conditioning. Maid service is good and...

The first irritation came when we had to pay 50% as non-refundable prepayment immediately after booking and after arrival we were first asked to pay the rest of the sum before the not very friendly check in. I assume the reason is that most people wouldn't stay for a second night. Unfortunately, we had booked for 3 nights because of...

The location is very special. The view is superb! The rooms, the breakfast were excellent. The lady of the house was kind. There was a swimmingpool but the location was a little bit scary. To go in the pool was no problem - but without steps- to get out of the pool??? So we couldn't swim!

Lovely guesthouse, most lovely views. Very comfortable rooms, very kind hosts and personnel. Close to Boulder beach and Cape Horn. Even to visit Cape Town, it's not that far. We had a very pleasant stay

From the moment we arrived Bridget could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. Our room, the sunrise room, had an incredible view and private access to the pool and sun loungers. We came slightly unprepared but Bridget kindly arranged a car service to boulder beach, harbor house and around cape of good hope for us which was amazing and...

We received such a warm welcome from Valerie on our arrival. The room was comfortable, clean, and the view to die for. Breakfast was homely. Overall, it was a lovely one night stay over. :) We would do it all over again.

The directions as per Booking.com were not very clear. However once you arrive it is a lovely place to stay and very peaceful. The rooms were clean, breakfast excellent and the staff very helpful. Especially the assistant manager Bridget. The pool is hard to get in and out of, but they are in the process of rectifying the problem.

The spectacular view is worth staying here. Perched on the side of a hill this guest house has all the amenities you would desire. The top rooms are the best. The one bedroom although nice has no view really. Because of the water shape tags on the cape the pool was not full nor was the fountain running. The breakfast...
