A great B&B run by husband and wife, close to the beach. The rooms are well presented and have some awesome views. Fall asleep listening to the waves crashing on the rocks, the food is so good that it is hard not to eat it all. I stay 5 days at a time and can recommend it to all who... More

The place is very close to the beach and Hermanus central (with restaurants and other amenities), very nice view of the ocean waters from the breakfast room. Safe area - you don't have to worry about parking your car outside. The place is not really new, but it's clean and perfect for a few nights stay. The room was clean... More

Only stayed one night, wish we could stay longer. Best location right across the ocean, with breathtaking views. Lovely, clean room. Best breakfast I had in years, wide variety, and everything fresh and well presented. Blessed to have been surrounded by all the beauty and friendly owner and staff. Will definitely recommend!

A beautifully appointed room with a magnificent view!!! The guest house is large yet feels very private. Situated right on the beach but out of the bustle of Hermanus town- this spot is ideal! The breakfast spread was marvelous and the hosts friendly and accommodating. The only thing to fault was the pillows- they really were uncomfortable I'm afraid, however... More

We stayed here for three days during a business trip. The room was lovely and the location of the guest house is ideal - just down the road is the sea! I must commend the hostess for the lovely breakfast and dinners we had - it was so delicious. Very friendly atmosphere and homey feel!

The rooms are very cosy. We went while it was extremely cool, the underfloor heating made sure we stayed warm and cosy. Lovely views from the room. Breakfast served with a smile. Close to shops and restaurants.

I have not stayed here, but they cater for group functions, so 15 of our family descended on them for a Father's Day get together. The soup and fish were pronounced delicious. The lamb in gravy was tasty. Vegetables cooked to perfection and the roast potatoes - my oh my! The only dish I felt did not pass muster was... More
