The Potting Shed Self-catering is located in a peaceful, sea-facing, upmarket complex with 24 hour security. Whale Rock Estate, Hermanus, has a stunning view of Walker Bay, where the Southern Right whales are often seen breaching and blowing along the rocky coast line.

These family-friendly apartments can accommodate up to 4 guests in each, and comprises 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom with a shower-over-bath, a kitchen, and a patio with braai facilities. A stroll to the walk-way leading to the rocky beach is approximately 90 m from each patio door.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a washing machine, a stove, oven, microwave, toaster, fridge-freezer, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Cutlery, crockery, braai tongs, an iron and ironing board are provided. The lounge presents a TV with selected DStv channels or Netflix and Showmax, and a DVD player. Electric- and panel heaters provide extra comfort on cold winter nights.

Play a game of squash in the court provided, or swim in the pool at the recreational area, where guests have use of an outdoor brick-built braai. Alternatively, use the gas braai provided in the privacy of the guest's own apartment.

Situated just 1 km from the New Harbour, this is an ideal location to sample local fresh-caught fish and sushi at 1 of the fabulous sea food restaurants. The apartments are 3 km away from the town center, and a mere 5 km to the Hermanus Golf Course which features a 27 hole golf course.

Check out "Heart of Abagold" for a guided tour. The hosts are happy to book you a shark cage dive, whale watching boat trip, sea kayaking, quad biking, zip-lining, massage or wine tour. Cape Town International airport is just 104 km away. Don't forget to visit the penguins at Bettys Bay, between Hermanus and Cape Town.
