Simonstown is about as far south as you can get to stay in South Africa and Portofcall is about the very best you can expect from a guesthouse. It's clean, immaculate, beautifully positioned for views across False Bay and has the hosts from heaven. All in all a cool place to stay, miss it if you dare!

Dear Eric and Olivia The house felt so empty after you left and we sat for the next few evenings wondering where you were and what you were up to. It felt like family visiting and certainly left an empty space in our household. We loved your fantastic sense of humour and "Southerner baiting Paul" over breakfast. Please visit again...
