Mariner Guest House

The newly built and eco-friendly four star graded Mariner Guest House is situated looking out across False Bay, in the picturesque and quaint sea-side village of Simon’s Town, just south of Cape Town. Located on the slope of a mountainside, on a quiet street, Mariner Guest House is a short walk from local beaches and sea-side restaurants. With only eight suites guests are assured luxury, exclusivity and friendly service. 

Simon’s Town is a great base for a range of attractions including the African Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach; views and trails at Cape Point and Chapman’s Peak; boat trips and whale watching as well as trips to Seal Island to dive with a Great White Shark and watch them breach (May- Sept); hiking, cycling, bird watching and horse riding in the surrounding mountains and wilderness including one of the six floral kingdoms of the world; and surrounding farms and vineyards offering organic foods and wine.
