This historical beach cottage offers unimpeded and direct access to the sea, exquisitely beautiful surroundings, privacy, tranquillity and spectacular 180 degree sea views across False Bay.

Perfect Haven for Nature Lovers

Relax to the sound of birdsong and gentle waves lapping. Experience unique encounters with such South African wildlife as dassies (rock hyrax, a relation of the rhinoceros), Cape clawless otters, dolphins, cape fur seals, genets, mongoose, porcupine, caracal and a variety of sea and land birds. During the calving season between July and November, experience the thrill of seeing Southern Right whales swimming and breaching right in front of the house from the comfort of the living room. Enjoy swimming or snorkeling at the bottom of the garden, exploring interesting rock pools or going for leisurely coastal walks. The world renowned Boulder’s penguin colony is within easy walking distance of The Milestone, passing three sandy beaches of which Fisherman’s Beach is a leisurely 3-minute walk from The Milestone.

Great Views

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. The house is situated in a secluded garden that opens onto the shoreline.

Everything You Need

The house is lovingly maintained, comfortably and attractively furnished and well equipped with everything you would need for a seaside holiday including Wi-Fi. The house sleeps 6 in three bedrooms. The comfortable living room has a CD/DVD player and television. The sunroom and living room’s large windows allow for panoramic views of False Bay. The protected outside barbecue deck enjoys the same magnificent outlook.

The dining room seats six. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, fridge, stove, microwave, toaster, kettle and vacuum cleaner. The washing machine, a second fridge, barbecue equipment and deck chairs are in the annex. The barbecue deck provides a perfect vantage point to enjoy marine life and moods, and nightly enjoy the stars or watch the moonrise over False Bay.

The Milestone is protected by a reputable security firm and offers secure parking with a lock up garage. Next to the garage is a milestone, marking 25 miles along the Main Road from the Old Town House on Green Market Square in Cape Town. Hence the name – The Milestone.

Seclusion without Isolation

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.  Yet it is very close to the village of Simon’s Town with its interesting shops, art galleries, museums and good restaurants and within easy commuting distance from other popular areas in Cape Town and the Peninsula, as well as the Stellenbosch wine route.

The Milestone is truly a wonderful choice in self-catering accommodation for those who love nature, value direct access to the shoreline and enjoy peace and quiet..
