A newly constructed house converted into a 3 bedroomed guest house with the most spectacular seaviews from the communal sitting room at first floor. The breakfasts are imaginatively composed and very well cooked. The staff could not have been more committed to helping us have a "good holiday". The only drawback is you have to drive to the nearest restaurants...

My wife and I had a fantastic long weekend here. Belinda and Jena could not be more helpful. They went out of their way to make our stay feel very special and as it was my birthday they did everything they could to make it one that I would never forget - for all the right reasons. The accommodation is...

We booked this thru booking.com after reading reviews and were just thrilled with our stay. The location, just out of town, was magnificent-it took our breath away-ocean views from many rooms and from public areas were just perfect. Staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant. They suggested and made dinner reservations, gave directions,and served us welcoming tea in...

Throughout the house Jena paid careful attention to detail to make our experience wonderful. And Katie's breakfast is the best we had in a long time! I can definitely...

Perfect tranquillity, facing the beauty and peaceful sounds of the Hermanus sea. We wanted a special location for our 20th wedding anniversary, and we found it in abundance. Gracious hosts, excellent staff, brilliant breakfasts, beautifully appointed spaces and a sea view from the bath. It was sad to have to leave the house to go sightseeing! You can't go wrong...

Great experience in a beautiful setting. Attention to detail, well kept rooms and facilities. Rosemary was very helpful and an outstanding example of South African hospitality. You are right in the middle of wine country of Walker Bay which, in my opinion has the best climate for wine growing in South Africa. 10 minutes away from Beach house.

A wonderful welcome, first class service and well appointed, tastefully furnished rooms. The staff were all friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Delicious breakfast. Right on the waterfront with stunning views . I loved hearing the sound of the sea throughout the night and waking to hear the sound of birds. A home away from home.

We read some of the reviews before coming here and it said they were hospitable, and so we assumed the basic hospitable behaviors. Never assume. This wonderful couple have redefined what hospitality in a guesthouse means. Unbelievable care and attention to detail. They even booked our restaurants for the evening in case we had not planned anything. The decor of...
