- a variety of good restaurants and shops in and around the village
- safe, sheltered bathing beaches on the warm water side of the Peninsula
- Access to a myriad of activities, experiences and sights...sea fishing, walking, scuba diving, canoeing, bird watching, pelagic trips, whale watching, golfing, shark viewing, to name but a few... And over and above all this, there are the simple pleasures of waking to a spectacular sunrise over False Bay and watching the full moon emerge over the bay.

    "<span style="color: #4a4a4a; font-family: arial, tahoma, 'bitstream vera sans', sans-serif; -webkit-text-size-adjust: auto; background-color: #ffffff;">We spent 4 nights in the Shearwater apartment and we enjoyed every moment! The 2 bedroom apartment is extremely spacious, clean and comfortable with breathtaking views from the lounge, bedroom and magnificent deck. The owners have paid great attention to their guest's needs especially with extra features like beach chairs that you can take with you to the beach, DVD player, books, games, beach toys for children and the well equipped kitchen came not only with tea and coffee but it also had milk, oil, spices, foil!! Thank-you for making our stay so memorable and comfortable.</span>"

  • "Fantastic"

    16 October 2010

    "We stayed in Shearwater and wow this apartment was fantastic. The views from the rooms were outstanding and the rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated with so many little extra touches (flowers in the room and lay on the towels,). Apartment was fully-equipped and so peaceful. We were given lots of information about the surrounding area. We missed the porcupine in the garden but enjoyed watching and listening to the birds. We only stayed for one night at the end of our holiday and I wish it could have been for longer. It was paradise. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We would recommend to family and friends."
