- Very Good
“The Perfect Place”
Felsensicht Holiday Home is the perfect place to relax. It is decorated tastefully and equipped with everything you may need. The views are beautiful, the location is quiet. We will definitely come back as soon as possible!!!
“Loved this house”
As a family of five seniors, we found this such a delightful place to stay. The town was interesting and located close enough to Cape Town to take advantage but enjoy a peaceful setting. Many thanks to Jim for being so helpful. Highly recommended.
“Excellent venue and home”
House immaculate and everything for self catering available, excellent position. Located in close proximity to numerous "must visits". Will recommend Felsenzicht to anybody. We were kept indoors due to weather but the house made it easy to be stuck!
“beautiful house in fantastic location”
we stayed in this property with 3 young children, and it was simply fantastic. beautifully decorated, with everything you could need, very spacious, perfect location overlooking a lovely little beach where the children played every day, amazing views from the balconies, really a perfect holiday rental. all this was made even better by great service from the owner who responsed promptly during the booking process, and the helpful caretaker who was able to answer any questions. i would recommend this property very highly.
“Stunning views, excellent facilites, beautifully furnished”
We had a wonderful stay at Felsenseicht during our son's recuperation from a back operation. The house itself it well situated with beautiful views from the bedrooms, bath (!), and balconies on two levels. It is beautifully furnished, comfortable, spacious, well equipped and peaceful. Simonstown is a lovely village with no big franchised shops to spoil the atmosphere. Altogether an wonderful house which we'd like to return to in the future. It was a pleasure to book through Gail who took a personal interest in our wellbeing; and the caretaker, Jim, was organized and extremely pleasant to work with.
“Brilliant house, gorgeous view, great location and very kid friendly”
It's obvious that the owners, Gail and Rene, have put a lot of effort into making Felsensicht a comfortable holiday home. From a friendly greeting at the start by caretaker Jim to the well appointed and very modern furnishings, I think they've thought of just about everything. Gail was thoroughly friendly but professional throughout and I've come away very impressed! We stayed for a week in November with our 19 month old son and it was a delight. The patio is large and very safe for a toddler (we picked the house in part because the railing appeared secure enough for a little one - it was). The beach is 200 metres away and offered endless entertainment - and 1/4 mile further is a beach full of penguins! Only challenge would be for those aiming to walk everywhere - the shops are close but still require a very short (5 min) drive. Highly recommended in every way.
We had a lovely stay. The house is wonderful and lacked nothing. We will definitely use it again.
