We had our wedding reception at the Black Marlin on the 27th of December 2017 and that is about a 10 minute drive from A Boat House in Simons Town. I was stumbled across this gem while searching for accommodation close to the Black Marlin. We spent our first two nights as husband and wife at this lovely guest house and it was heaven. Now we are counting down the days to our official honeymoon in South America! YAY:-)
A Boat House is a four-star seaside Bed and Breakfast based in Simons Town across the road from the ocean, and within walking distance of the beach. This nautically-styled guest house has 6 tastefully decorated rooms with soft blue and white tones. All rooms have sea views with private balconies, flat screen TV, fridge, microwave, coffee and tea maker. Each room spills out onto a slatted wooden balcony with views over the harbor.
Rise and shine to a full English and Continental breakfast every morning on the top deck. There is also a selection of fresh fruits, yogurt, cereal and home baked breads. Enjoy a glass of freshly squeezed juice, coffee or tea with an amazing view. The historical naval town is filled with many activities/attractions including local museums,historical sites, deep sea fishing,shark cage diving, sea kayaking, diving or sailing. Perfect for a family vacation or adventure tourists.
We stayed in the Chart Deck pictured below:

- En-suite with shower
- 100% cotton percale linen
- Flat screen TV
- Free WiFi
- Coffee and tea making facilities
- Mini bar fridge

Relax on the private patio and gaze at the stunning views from the deck, or enjoy the indoor swimming pool at any time. All guests have access to the main house to enjoy freshly baked cakes or muffins at any time with a pot of coffee or tea. I liked that even though we were very close to our home in Muizenberg it still felt like we were on holiday. The suite was super comfortable and we were able to just switch off from the rest of the world and enjoy being Mr and Mrs Farnham:-) The management and staff are very helpful and friendly and this was much appreciated.
I will definitely rate this place a ten out of ten and give it an additional star if I could:-) We will definitely be back for a quick getaway, It is reasonably priced and not too far from home.
Thank you to the guest house manager Ludwig and the rest of the staff for an amazing stay!
Lots of love
Radia & Marc xoxo
Aka Mr & Mrs Farnham ha-ha!!! feels good saying that:-)
