Away from the crowds and the hustle of Cape Town city, the new Tintswalo at Boulders Boutique Villa offers gorgeous seaside accommodation in the charming suburb of Simon’s Town in Cape Town. Known for its pristine swimming beaches, and with the colony of penguins as star attraction, the North-facing Tintswalo at Boulders is located on route to Cape Point, enjoying sublime views of the Indian Ocean. The lodge is situated a stone’s throw from Cape Town’s prettiest beaches, best swimming spots and has stunning views across False Bay and the Hottentots Holland mountains in the distance.
Expect warm, laid back but attentive service matched with elegant and serene surroundings. All nine rooms are named after famous ships and have been romantically decorated by owners Lisa and Gaye Corbett. In the wintertime (May to August) you will want to choose a premier suite so as to cosy up with your very own gas fireplace.
Much like the rest of Cape Town, the food is lovingly prepared and locally sourced here at Tintswalo Boulders Boutique. Since breakfast is the only meal served here, wake from your slumber to a banquet of fresh fruit, yoghurts, homemade muesli, local cheese, fresh breads and pastries, along with an adaptive menu of whatever they feel like cooking. From spinach and feta quiches, mushroom fritters to a hot cooked breakfast, you will sure be given enough fuel for your days exploring Cape Town.
By staying here, you are just a few minutes’ drive to the picturesque Victorian high street, Simon Town. From here you can book onto an array of exciting water-based activities like kayaking with seals and shark cage diving for those seeking more of a thrill!
Tintswalo at Boulders may also be booked exclusively as a 9-suite private villa for fun family getaways, special celebrations or large groups of friends travelling together. A private chef is available on request.
Tintswalo Boulders Boutique is a double story villa made up of nine luxurious and individually decorated rooms, along with a penguin themed children’s room. Every room, bar the Courtyard suite, enjoys views of the ocean. The two largest and most decadent rooms, the premier suites Drommedaris and SeaWitch, are located on the top floor nearby to the rooftop plunge pool.
Rooms can be made into multiple configurations and enjoy the same luxury amenities such as air conditioning, tea and coffee facilities, minibar, complimentary Wi-Fi, hair dryers, television and gas fireplaces in premier suites only. The spacious bathrooms are excellently appointed with separate baths and showers.
There are two open-plan lounge areas and several dining areas with unobstructed ocean views. After the sun has set over the Indian ocean, you can retreat from the cool ocean breeze to a lovely wind-shielded courtyard with a crackling firepit.
Tintswalo at Boulders offers freshly prepared and locally sourced hot and cold breakfasts to in-house guests only, served either outside overlooking the ocean or inside in the restaurant area. Lunch and dinner is available but only for exclusive use guests. Snacks and picnic baskets can be arranged at no trouble but at an extra cost.
Tintswalo at Boulders commands 180 degree ocean vistas and guests can revel in the uninterrupted views of playful African penguins below, a social fire pit, swimming pool, cinema room and luxury lounge areas with fireplaces.
The Tintswalo Property Group has launched the Tintswalo Rhino Extreme Campaign (TREC), an initiative designed to increase awareness of the massacre of the rhino population in Southern Africa. This project forms part of Tintswalo Safari Lodge’s commitment to facilitate growth in the rhino population in the Manyeleti Game Reserve and Western Kruger National Park. Tintswalo Safari Lodge have hands-on involvement in the project and collaborate with the field rangers responsible for protecting the rhino.
