Simonstown Self Catering Accommodation:Neighborhood overview
This minimalistic luxury Simonstown self-catering accommodation has 4 en-suite bedrooms and is designed to accommodate 8 persons. The architectural design was for a holiday home & is intentionally minimalist with exposed concrete, lime-washed wood, galvanised metal & touches of bright colour. You'll notice from the map that this Simonstown self catering accommodation is in Simon's Kloof one of the expensive suburbs of Simonstown.
The owner and designer is a famous architect.
It's relatively protected from prevailing winds. And it has great views on the yacht basin; romantic picture all times of the day. You can walk down to the Simonstown village. But I am not sure if you'll walk back. It's a very steep climb.
