On exiting the airport take the N2 towards Cape Town. Pass the M5 to Muizenberg and take the M3.
At the end of the M3, turn left for the coastal road past Muizenberg or right to take the inland route via 'Ou Kaapse Weg' and Glencairn Express Way to the coast. Due to the current road works before Fish Hoek we suggest the latter.
Follow the coastal Main Road into Simonstown. Pass through and turn left at Bellevue Road before the golf course.
Turn first left again into Grant Avenue. You will see Bosky Dell's black wrought iron gate in front of you.
