Relaxing stay watching the waves come in and out - so relaxing.

All good although the load shedding has got worse. Obviously, not the property's problem but if you need to work, this is difficult.

Heerlike gekuier.

'n Mooier ligging gaan jy nie kry nie. Ek het die hele naweek na die see en walvisse gestaar, gelees en my man het gebraai. Perfek!

Great visit.

You will not find a more beautiful location. I spent the whole weekend staring at the ocean and whales, reading and my husband barbecued. Perfect!

Loved our stay! And even saw some dolphins!

We stayed very comfortably and had no need for anything. The accommodation has breathtaking views of the ocean and is so close to the sea. We even saw dolphins! We enjoyed our stay thoroughly.

Hi Angelica

Thank you for appreciating our friendly hospitality! The informal setting you speak of is close by but you’re not part of it. The security is top grade and we live in the estate ourselves. There hasn’t been a security breech in over a decade now. Hope that helps out minds at ease.

Uitsig oor die see is regtig soos op die foto's. Ek dink vir die prys per nag, kan die badkamers dalk bietjie opgegradeer word. Sekuriteit goed. Heel veilig gevoel.

Relaxing, calming with the waves breaking up on the rocks. Well equipped and friendly greeting by host.

The shower in the main room en-suite is a bit awkward. Can't close the bathroom door and shower as the doors clash. It may seem minor and insignificant but if one is lying in bed looking at the view while the other is showering that won't work because you would be in full view of anyone walking by and, yes, other guests in the house or people walking on the path by the rocks as it is of course open to the ocean which is the main reason for the accommodation.

Rustig, onbelemmerde see-uitsig.

Dit was 'n heerlike rustige naweek met die mooiste onbelemmerde see-uitsig. Huis is netjies en skoon en goed ingerig met wasmasjien en skottelgoedwasser vir 'n langer wegbreek. Heerlik om elke oggend met die mooiste uitsig wakker te word. 'n Lekker houtbraai sou dit perfek afgerond het, maar die Weber het steeds die ding gedoen!

Peaceful, unobstructed sea view.

It was a lovely peaceful weekend with the most beautiful unobstructed sea view. House is neat and clean and well furnished with washing machine and dishwasher for a longer break. Wonderful to wake up every morning with the most beautiful view. A nice wood grill would have topped it off perfectly, but the Weber still did the trick!

Our stay was good but I think it is overpriced for the location in town.

The views are very good and I think that is mostly what you pay for. It is not walking distance to town or the cliff path. The cold tap in the first bathroom did not work. I informed the owner.

Thank you Amanda for sharing. The options for affordable beachfront stays 20 m from the waves in Hermanus are extremely limited. You can't get closer to the water without being on a boat. That said, yes the ambiance of the views and position as well as the Privacy of the Security Estate, is the well worth value that you pay for.

The short 2 km from town center is a blessing in that it creates a quiet, tranquil space away from the hustle noise of town whilst still being a quick drive to all town festivities, attractions, restaurants and shops.

Our best, Irene and Samantha.
