Almost overhanging the water, the Upper Deck perches at the end of the Cat Walk skirting the western curve of False Bay. Unsurpassed as an outdoor lover’s paradise and heaven for kids, this is a very special holiday destination.
Directly in front of the apartment the Jaeger Walk meanders charmingly along the rock pools to a safe swimming beach, with facilities and a restaurant. To the north and south along the shoreline are the two picturesque harbours of Kalk Bay and Simon's Town. Connected by a beautiful road and shore-hugging railway (even a choo-choo on Sundays), each has an abundance of chic terrace cafe's, seafood restaurants and bars. The fishing village of Kalk Bay is vibrant with music, art and theatre and its antique/curiosity shops offer plenty of diversion for sunsoaked browsers. Beyond the naval base and yacht marina at Simon's Town is Cape Town's famous penguin colony and a string of exquisite, sheltered beaches for warm-water swimming."
Located in the middle of the peninsula it is less than 35 minutes drive to the main attractions of Cape Town i.e. Table Mountain, V&A Waterfront, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Chapmans Peak Drive, the Cape of Good Hope (Cape Point), Boulder's Beach Penguin Colony and the Constantia Winelands.
Our warm waters, sparkling beaches, rocky shores and glorious mountain backdrop offer something for everyone. Between the picturesque fishing harbour of Kalk Bay and the Victorian naval base at Simonstown, from Surfer’s Corner to the famous penguin colony at Boulders Beach, you’ll need a lifetime to explore it all!
A multiplicity of terrace cafes and restaurants caters to all tastes and pockets, there are antiques and collectables, museums, theatres and art galleries and a choo-choo train traversing the spectacular shoreline railway track. There are wonderful hikes and superlative coastal strolls, world-class mountainbike trails, rock-climbing for all grades…and always the stupendous views.
Nature reserves and coastal wetlands offer birdwatching and horse-riding, you can go trail-running and paragliding, deep-sea game fishing or angling from the rocks. There is surfing for all skill-levels, stand-up paddling, sea-kayaking, surfski-ing and kite-surfing. You can snorkel, spearfish, scuba-dive on old wrecks, charter a yacht or try shark-cage diving.
We offer safe swimming beaches, sheltered tidal pools or wild, crashing waves. In summer there is sunshine…lots of it…yet when the wind blows, always a sheltered spot to catch a suntan. Every autumn the whales come…watch their antics as you breakfast on the deck. And in winter there are windless blue days between brief, wild storms. Beware…this is a place you’ll fall in love with!
