Avian Leisure

About the Accommodation

Avian Leisure’s self-catering apartments are in a magnificent situation on the mountain above the Boulders Beach penguin colony in Simon’s Town, overlooking False Bay and set amidst an indigenous Cape Fynbos garden – this means you can see whales, fur seals, penguins, sunbirds, sugarbirds and a host of other wildlife right from your bedroom! An added delight is the almost guaranteed night-time view of porcupines coming to our floodlit pond!

Our location in Cape Town makes a perfect base for doing Cape Peninsula birding trips, pelagic birding trips, whale watching trips, Cape winelands tours, snorkelling or scuba diving in False Bay and along the Atlantic coastline or just enjoying the natural beauty in the Table Mountain National Park. There is something for everyone here!

  • 5 minutes to the harbour for pelagic trips
  • 10 minutes from Cape Point Nature Reserve

Owner run by experienced birders and adventurers – available to assist in planning your self-drive trips

Fully equipped spacious apartments

Shearwater, with its unrestricted, panoramic sea views, sleeps up to 4 adults comfortably and is fully equipped including a dishwasher and washing machine, making for a relaxed and very comfortable stay.

Watsonia is a spacious one bedroomed suite, with twin beds, a bathroom with large shower and a large living room with a small but well equipped kitchenette, so even though there is no sea view from this apartment, it makes for a very convenient and comfortable base from which to explore the area
