We loved our stay! Sail loft is way better than the pictures portray. Everything was perfect. From the communication with the host to the manager, Godfrey, who even helped us check in after hours. (which wasn't necessary as there is a lock box). The views are awesome and the inside warm and comfortable. Little thoughtful touches like milk in the fridge, tea, coffee, sugar, toiletries, etc makes it quite special. Although we only stayed one night, it will be great for a longer stay, as it is fully equipped for self catering and even boasts a washing machine in the bathroom! Really lovely stay, thank you.

It really is a must see town, there is a scratch patch with the most beautiful stones. Boulders beach is a fantastic spot to relax and enjoy the penguins and plenty of shops to browse, plus a very nice yacht club with plenty of spots to choose from to grab something to eat.
