Last week I had the pleasure of staying at Boulders Beach Guest Lodge & Restaurant. My wife and I made our way to Simonstown on a beautiful spring afternoon to enjoy an overnight stay at this perfectly located guest lodge. I was immediately mesmerised by the donkey-like sound of the African Penguins as well as the sound of the ocean in the background. I spent a few minutes just fascinated by the sound of nature. We get so caught up in the hustle bustle of city life that we don’t realise how soothing and calming mother nature can be. Anyway, I digress.
Check-in was smooth and the service was exemplary. We were shown to our room and all I could do was admire the view from balcony. Look at this view… you got to love it!!
We decided to have an early night and we simply just relaxed in our very comfy bed and quickly dozed off into dreamland. In the distance I could here the rain beating down and the wind howling outside, but I thought it was all a dream. When I woke up the next morning it really was raining!! Only in cape Town…
Breakfast at Boulders Beach restaurant was good. The setting was perfect. Great views all round, with mountain behind us and ocean in front of us. Service in the restaurant was excellent!! Soon after breakfast we checked out and went to check out the penguins. This is one of the many gems tucked away in the awesome Cape Town. I recommend this to anybody who needs a break away from the busy city life.
