The Milestone - Self-catering accommodation in Simons Town Western Cape

General Description

The Milestone offers privacy, an intimate seaside experience and the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern society and close to nature, recharging your batteries. The house is situated in a secluded garden, which gives way to wild coastal shrubs to the north and the shoreline to the east. The outdoor living area (lawns, deck and barbecue area) is completely private and is as close to the waterís edge as one could hope to get on the Cape Peninsula. The Milestone enjoys a superb 180-degree uninterrupted sea-view making the ever-changing moods of the panorama from the spectacular sunrises over the sea and the Hottentots Holland Mountains to the equally impressive pastel sunsets part of The Milestone experience. 

Attractions / Things to do

Relax to the sound of birdsong and gentle waves lapping. Experience unique encounters with such South African wildlife as Cape clawless otters, cape fur seals, genets, dassies (hyrax) and jackass penguins. Watch Southern Right whales swimming and breaching right in front of the house from July to November. Enjoy swimming, diving or snorkelling at the bottom of the garden. Explore the fascinating life in the rock pools. Take a leisurely 3-minute stroll to Fisherman's Beach, or a coastal walk to nearby Boulders Beach. Visit interesting shops, art galeries, museums and good restaurants in historic Simonís Town (5 minute drive) or Cape Town, other popular areas in the Peninsula, or the Stellenbosch wine route (all within easy commuting distance).
