The Lookout may very well be one of the best b&b’s we’ve ever encountered, so much so that one feels sad leaving the property. The proprietors, Claire and Colin, have thought of virtually everything to make visitors happy. The rooms are so well appointed that...More

About
Description
The Lookout in Simon’s Town, is a beautiful, contemporary guesthouse situated a few paces from the False Bay shoreline, offering uninterrupted views of the ocean and the Hottentots Holland Mountains. We More look forward to welcoming you to stay in one of our four, immaculately appointed, guest suites which overlook the sparkling pool and the sea. Situated just outside historic Simon’s Town, we are a short stroll away from Fisherman’s Beach, with the penguins on Boulder’s Beach being a little further down the road. It’s a 10-15 minute drive to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and the world famous Cape Point and well under an hour from the oldest wine producing region in the southern hemisphere, with the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town beyond. The Lookout (formerly The Flagship) offers luxury guesthouse accommodation with spectacular sea views and is the perfect base from which to explore the southern peninsula and the Cape Town surrounds.
