Experience the Culture of the Navy in Luxury Cabins fit for Admirals


Experience the culture of the Navy in a different manner!!! Luxury cabins fit for Admirals, overlooking the tranquil waters of the Mooi River. Listen to the call of the Fish-Eagle, hunting atop the water; watch the Egyptian Geese flying above and sounding their call at the end of the day. Wake up to the call of the Turtle Doves in the trees next to the river...calling "Wakey, Wakey, Rise & Shine". Join in the chit chat and listen to the intriguing stories that only a sailor can tell. Learn to "Make 'n Mend and splice the Main Brace" and meet "Just Nuisance" the great-great-great-grandchild of the legendary mascot of the Navy whose statue stands in Simonstown.

There are 3 self-catering luxury log cabins, each named after an Admiral. The cabins have an "Upper Deck" (veranda) where "Stand Easy" (morning tea) can be enjoyed while looking out over the river, forest and distant mountains. Each Cabin provides comfortable inside accommodation and sleeping facilities for up to 7 people.

The "Galley" (kitchen) is compact and well equipped and is part of the "Mess" (Dining Room). The Mess has an attractive dining area with a sleeper couch, which is a central part of the furnishings. It is perfect for daytime relaxing; at night it folds out easily to become a comfortable Double Bed.

A Gas Heater is provided. The Forward Mess, adjacent to the Galley, provides exciting bunk bed quarters, sleeping up to 3; it will delight all young "Sailors" who come on board. Leading off the Mess is the Captain's Cabin (Main Bedroom), which retains the decorative blue theme. The "Heads" (Bathroom), with Shower, toilet and hand-basin leads off from the Captain's Cabin.
