This is a great base from which to explore False Bay, the whale and wine routes and nature reserves. We are a quick walk from the long, famous beach, with its stretch of high rises and vibey eateries. Come relax in a tranquil garden with water features (get your zen on), a braai so you don’t get hungry, and DSTV and free wi-fi so you don’t lose touch with the unreal world. There’s also a great surf spot nearby.
