Mariner Guesthouse prides itself on being eco-friendly and is fully committed to responsible tourism. As such they have implemented several practices like recycling all plastic, paper and glass waste.

All complimentary amenities provided in the guest bathrooms are water-based, 100% bio-degradable, free of phosphates and cruelty free. These responsible product choices are extended to the laundry and dishwashing detergents which are also phosphate-free and bio-degradable.

The guesthouse prepares meals made from organic, local and free rangeingredients as far as possible; including their own homegrown herbs picked fresh from the garden.

The garden is mostly indigenous fynbos which requires very little irrigation thus saving water. There is a Laundry Policy in place where guest are requested to reuse towels and making use of the heated  towel rails instead of having them laundered daily, as this saves both water and energy.

To further reduce energy consumption, energy-saving light bulbs have been installed throughout the property as well as state of the art solar geysers that deliver all hot water to the house during the warm months; saving an estimated 15 584 kW/hr per annum.

Mariner Guesthouse used the principals of eco architecture to create this environmentally friendly, north-facing establishment. Simon’s Towns moderate climate also makes it the ideal place to utilise natural ventilation and light. The extra high ceilings and large glass windows in all the rooms allow for natural light to be used to the full. Despite the availability of air-conditioning and heating facilities, the green design elements in the house create natural climate control; therefore guests are requested to use these amenities responsibly.

The development and training of their staff members is a priority at Mariner Guesthouse. They provide continuous training in housekeeping, cooking, computer skills and hospitality. They are proud to have staff that completed executive cooking courses and massage therapy courses through their assistance.

Mariner Guesthouse is also involved in various local community projects.  They make regular donations of clothing, linen, magazines and toys to the Living Hope Community Centre and Fish Hoek Elder Care Centres. They also support their local Fire Stations; Wild Life Conservation projects, fund raising initiatives for the NSIR (National Sea Rescue Institute) and other community projects to the benefit of Simon’s Town and its community.
