Mariner Guesthouse


Expansive False Bay views from luxurious Mariner Guesthouse

Simon’s Town’s Mariner Guesthouse offers a selection of different lodging options to suit all patrons visiting the region. Despite currently being considered a part of the greater Cape Town area, Simons Town has retained its old-world, small-town charm. Home to the South African Navy and located on the eastern side of the Cape Peninsula, Simon’s Town’s boundaries creep out along the rising mountainside.

A favourite way for visitors to make their way to Simon’s Town from Cape Town’s CBD is via train. Running along the coast and offering resplendent and sometimes thrilling vantage points of the ocean and surrounding landscape, the railway is a terrific way to explore along the way before reaching the end of the line in Simon’s Town. A visit to this part of the Cape isn’t complete without a stop by Boulders Beach, where an African penguin colony has been established since 1983. A shielded beach, perfect for families to enjoy, along with the added delight of observing the penguins as they go about their day, make this a worthy visit.

The owner-run four-star luxury guesthouse offers Superior Rooms, Self-Catering Luxury rooms, Executive Rooms and Sail Rooms that can be hired as a family unit. Accommodation highlights include Wi-Fi, satellite TV, heated towel rails and access to a kitchenette where meals can be prepared if guests have decided not to take the self-catering option. With a five day suggestion list of fun activities to do in the area and popular restaurants, the management of Mariner Guesthouse are always on hand to offer advice and make their guests’ holiday more memorable.
