Penguins use to nest in the garden near the barbecue until caracals (local lynx) feasted.on them.
Before the caracals,  penguins on the rocks below The Milestone were a common sight.
Hopefully penguins will return to The Milestone as 2 caracals were caught & relocated to Hout Bay.
Dassies (Hyrax) were all over the garden & rocks  below The Milestone before the caracal visits.
Photo taken of Dassie on log at northern edge of the garden before the caracals came. .

“Our wedding location - The Milestone”
Reviewed 3 October 2011 for a stay in August 2011

My partner and I had decided to have our civil partnership union in Simons Town. We did not want a flambouyant affair but something romantic and intimate by the sea. When we found the Milestone we knew this was our location. We stayed for a week at the beginning of August 2011 and had our ceremony at 12 outside in the glorious sunshine. The location of the house is so private, with 3 bedrooms and all the amenities one needs to have a wonderful holiday. Alida the owner was invited to our ceremony as she was so helpful and responsive to our enquiries and made fantastic suggestions helping out with florists and restaurants to eat at. Our special day at The Milestone will never be forgotten and we will be back to celebrate a few anniversaries. We found that walking into Simons Town was very easy and we ate often at the Boulders restaurant where we had a ceremony lunch - see our review on that. The house was spotless and very comfortable and we sat for hours looking out at the sea watching the sea life and even had a swim in the sea. We would highly recommend the Milestone and we will be back for sure. Thank you Alida the Milestone will never be forgotten.
