About Penguin Blue Self-Catering Apartments

Overlooking Simon’s Town and False Bay, Penguin Blue offers two spacious, comfortable self-catering apartments. The apartments are situated on the hillside of Glen Marine between sea and mountain, making Penguin Blue an excellent holiday destination.

Dolphin Apartment sleeps two guests. Whale Apartment sleeps up to four guests, however only one room is private. The second bedroom doubles as the walk through to the living area. Whale Apartment is ideal for a family. The two apartments can be rented separately, as a two sleeper and a four sleeper, or together as a six sleeper. There is a door that separates the two apartments which can be left open if rented together.

Both apartments have fully equipped open-plan kitchens with a stove/oven, fridge/freezer and all small appliances. Enjoy the queen-size beds, superb bedding, flat-screen TV with DStv; including all movies and sport channels, DVD player and limited free Wi-Fi. Each apartment has an indoor braai, and there is a joint outdoor braai area.

The apartments are serviced daily by trustworthy and friendly staff; excluding weekends and public holidays.

The accommodation is within a 5 minute drive from Simon's Town, and within walking distance (1km) from the Metro train station. Elsies Peak hiking trail, which offers amazing panoramic views of False Bay, is 3km away. Fish Hoek main beach, which is one of Cape Town’s safest and most beautiful swimming beaches, and Kalk Bay with its unique shops and restaurants, are just 5km and 6km away, respectively. Penguin Blue is ideally positioned: 40 minutes from the international airport, 40 minutes from the winelands, and 40 minutes from the Cape Town CBD. With a variety of restaurants and tourist attractions in the immediate vicinity, like Cape Point, this pristine area makes a popular tourist destination.

Erica, the owner of Penguin Blue, is on hand to manage the day-to-day running of the self-catering units.

Enjoy South African hospitality in a safe, luxurious and comfortable environment.

          This is a very well maintained and secure accommodation. It has great views of the ocean and a nice breeze through the evening and night. The service staff is very good. Cleanliness, spacious and hygienic. Enjoyed staying here and would definitely recommend it to others. It is about 30 mins drive to the heart of cape town, but the  route is scenic and one would enjoy driving on that route.

          The apartments are conveniently situated with beautiful views of False Bay. Whale has a better view, but Dolphin is lighter. Lovely furnishings with all required amenties at an excellent price. Well worth the stay!

          We had a lovely two week family stay in the Whale apartment. The flat was well equipped. The hotel quality linen and towels were an extra bonus! Erica is a wonderful hostess. We would definitely be staying here again on our next visit to the beautiful Cape.

          We thoroughly enjoyed it, Erica was very welcoming. I would most certainly recommend Penguin Blue to my friend and family. It was everything we expected and more. Definitely will be swinging by soon.
