“A Welcome and Warm Home Away from Home”

We travelled to Hermanus to attend a close friends wedding. There was a group of 8 of us, consisting Groomsmen, Partners and Friends. Upon arrival after the long drive from Cape Town we were ecstatic to discover Elaine's Hermanus Cottages. What a site when driving in, and it gets better. The layout of the property was excellent and allowed us the opportunity to provide 2 of the pregnant couples, areas that were a bit more private to ensure they got all the rest required. The location of the property is excellent and situated close to all the shops and amenities but still slightly off the main road. From the property you have Access to run routes and a route along the sea.

I would highly recommend this accomodation for anyone looking to stay in Hermanus. This cannot be beat!!

Reviewed 18 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Had a lovely 4 nights in Periwinkle. The lovely 2 bedroomed cottage with bath and separate shower. Well planned layout and had everything we needed. Less than 5 mins walk to the centre of town. Felt very secure. Highly recommend.

Stayed in Sandpiper at the end of Jan 2014 for a family get together to celebrate a big birthday and we all thought it was fantastic. It was perfect for all generations - from energetic small children who had a large secure garden to run around in, up to grandparents with mobility issues who found it ideal to have the room off the courtyard slightly away from the mayhem. The house is very spacious and is beautifully decorated. Ideal for entertaining - evening braais or chatting around the large dining table. Wonderful location very close to town, If you need a quick shop at Woolies it's a short stroll away as well as the restaurants on the front. Very peaceful setting yet close to the centre of town. Tidal pool in walking distance and beaches a short hop in the car. Hadn't been to Hermanus in years and thought the place was buzzing. We are so glad we stayed here and would love to return again.
