If you're looking to do some whale watching from the comfort of your couch, Whale Watcher's self-catering apartments is where you'll want to book a stay. Southern Right Whales visit False Bay every spring. With a balcony facing the beach, you'll have no trouble spotting them from your living room. While the neighborhood is very quiet at night, it's conveniently located near the Muizenberg Metrorail line and the catwalk linking Muizenberg to St. James and Kalk Bay. If you don't take advantage of the self-catering kitchen, Knead Bakery, just below the Greens building pictured here, is a great place to pop in and grab a coffee and almond croissant for breakfast.
