We stayed for 3 nights recently on a visit to Hermanus to see the whales. What an absolute gem of a place, beautifully laid out & very tastefully decorated with wonderful attention to small details which we really enjoyed. The room was very comfortable and had every convenience we could want, again beautifully decorated. Annemarie & Dave are very welcoming,...

We arrived to early to check in, but the host quit the work he was doing and received us very gentle. We received the keys and a map to go into town. Rooms are small but adequate, very clean and orderly. Breakfast was lovely and tasteful.

Save & Annamarie were great hosts. Tasty breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice a winner. Also helpful advice on local attractions and places to dine. We stayed in the studio loft and found it intimate and cosy.

We visited the Potting Shed in the African winter. So it was a bid cold, but the reception was very warm. We had a stroll along the cliff pad which was impressive. Unfortunately we did not spot any whales at the time. We had a nice dinner at the Fishermans Cottage. Next morning we were treated with an excellent breakfast.

Hi Jacoba, Glad you enjoyed your stay. :) Sometimes signal goes on the DSTV temporarily. This is out of our control. It usually happens due to weather conditions like storms in the area. Fortunately Dave was able to rebook it for you and get it going again straight away. See you again soon! Annamarie

We stayed one night at the potting shed, the rooms are small, but they are neat and clean. It is great value especially in Hermanus. The only thing we did not enjoy was that our room was right next to the breakfast area, so we could hear all the goings-on. It was a bit noisy around those times. Other than...
