Description from owner


Close to the southernmost tip of Africa, in the Cape Town Village of Simon's Town is where you will find Thalassa, a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom Seaforth Holiday Villa. This magical family home overlooks Seaforth Beach, is a two minute walk to the more secluded Water's Edge Beach, and is only a five minute walk to the world famous Boulder's Beach walkway. Boulder's Beach nature conservancy is home to a colony of endangered African Penguins – unique to this part of the world.

Simon's Town is a delightful holiday spot - close enough for day excursions to Cape Town City, the Winelands and other major tourist attractions like Table Mountain, Robben Island, the V&A Waterfront and the Two Oceans Aquarium. Closer to home, this delightful naval town offers easy access to some of the best beaches in the world, and a fantastic range of local ocean and land activities. There is a good range of interesting stores nearby, and some amazing restaurants that you really should try!

The Villa is charmingly decorated in a vintage style, although all appliances are state of the art and new! On arrival at Thalassa, you cannot help but feel that you have taken a step back in time, to an era when the pace was slower, and life was savoured.
