special thanks to the owners of the B&B and self-catering location. The view from the veranda during breakfast is fantastic, breakfast large with a great variety and the recommendations for trips on the Cape peninsula are worth to follow,

This is our second stay at High Gables, our first stay was in the B&B accommodation, which was lovely, this time we booked early enough to secure the self catering unit.

We stayed here for one night on a self drive trip around CT, Garden Route and the winelands. The owners were friendly and the place clean, good breakfast on the balcony upstairs where amazing little birds visit the sugar water feeders here. Great views from the rooms and breakfast balcony. We did struggle a little to find it, and as... More

The owners are lovely and friendly and the view over False bay is spectacular from such a great height, but I reluctantly have to say that this B&B was a bit disappointing. Room was spacious and well equipped but dull, with tired decor. (A wall hanging attempted to hide several holes from something which had previously hung there.) The cleaner... More

Simon's Town is a very nice town with enough to offer. High Gables is situated in a very nice neighbourhood and has great views allround. The garden attracts a lot of beautiful birds. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, and the room was very, very nice. I enjoyed sitting in front of my Captain's Room and just enjoying the... More

We stayed for only one night and didn't want to spend a great deal so this was perfect and so reasonable. Not a great deal to do in Simonstown but for a night or two is definitely worth seeing, especially the penguins at Boulders Beach. We were more than happy with our one night stopover on the way back to... More

We selected High Gables because of its location and excellent reviews, and we really enjoyed our four nights stay there. High Gables is only a few years old, has two bay facing rooms and an apartment. The accommodation is immaculate and the owners delightful.
