This is the guest house to book if you are a couple looking for tranquility, peace and harmony! The accommodation is luxurious, the hosts gracious and the breakfasts out of a haute cuisine text book! We stayed for a week and would've loved to linger longer. Much attention is given to details, such as turn down of beds at night...

Stayed here for only one night and just lovely. Fantastic sea views and coastal walk right in front and over the road from the guesthouse. Rooms are comfy, breakfast was absolutely delicious and service from the staff and owner was wonderful. I can't fault this place, great value and just outside Hermanus, so not far if you wish to drive...

Enjoyed our stay in this beautiful guesthouse. The room we stayed in was a convenient size and beautifully decorated. Attention to detail from chocolates, fresh flowers and small sparkling wine on arrival to delicious sherry on cold nights don't go unnoticed. Enjoyed the fabulous breakfast every morning. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The view at sunset is really...

A lovely marine themed guesthouse with a great eye for detail and the best breakfast I've ever had. The staff is flexible, warm and very helpful. Our activities were canceled on the last moment due to the bad weather. But thanks to Marine Beachfront Guesthouse their knowledge of Hermanus we saw some hidden gems we'd otherwise had missed. One of...

beach of Hermanus.Very kind hosts . Lovely rooms,sea views and an excellent breakfast .Louis took the time to share his in depth knowledge and views of the political history of RSA it was facinating. We highly recommend the place. One demerit is that the wifi service needs to be improved.

The guesthouse is decorated with impeccable taste. Absolutely gorgeous. This is definitely a favourite of ours. Nice location with sea views and a 5-10min drive from the main centre of Hermanus. The ladies (forgotten their names now...ooops!) who worked there were very friendly and helpful - in fact, when we said we were going to Franschhoek and Pasternoster, without us...

We arrived to find they had booked us into a restaurant for our evening meal which was ideal as we didn't know the area and we were very happy with their choice. If you like attention to detail this is the place for you. When we came back that evening there was a scroll with the next day's weather an...
