super emplacement
Cet appartement est situé au plus près de Boulders. Vous pouvez aller visiter la colonie de manchots du cap à pied. La vue est exceptionnelle. L'appartement est joliment décoré, très fonctionnel. Le fourneau à bois est un plus et très convivial. Nous avons passé un très bon et très agréable séjour. Si nous revenons à Simon's Town, c'est sur que nous loueront cet appartement avec plaisir
