“Excellent Location”
Reviewed 23 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

person found this review helpful

We loved the house and location. I would perhaps say that the bedrooms are not all suitable for adults. The third bedroom is small and does not have much furniture and very small single beds . My husband is six feet and he found his feet dangled off the end.. Also no window dressing so if you don't like light while you sleep then this is not for you. Also you have to use the facilities of another room. So I would say that although the downstairs is large and roomy I would only recommend the house for 4 adults. The glasses and crockery were just adequate. Could do with more wine glasses. My only other problem were the ants. Black work surface so they were well camouflaged. Having said all this we made the most of the location and enjoyed our stay.

“What a great house and location”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The property was even better than the website suggested, incredibly spacious with everything you could require for your stay. All of the usual household facilities - dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, oven, hob etc etc.

Even had a stair lift which was enjoyed by my mother-in-law!!

Great situation overlooking the sea/shore with walks nearby, Hermanus a short drive away and the milkwood restaurant a short walk away.

Absolutely fabulous and would recommend it to anyone.

“White dream house with fantastic views”
Reviewed 11 September 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Fantastic! A white dream house with stunning daylight inside, super beds and very nice furniture and everything in kitchen you need to make your dinners. I loved to have a sundowner on the balcony and listen to the sound of waves and just relax and unwind. Long back to Geheim again! Hopefully there is a place for outdoor braai / barbeque when I will be in Geheim next time; that was the only thing that was missing.

“Delightful rest and relaxation”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Geheim is situated on the sea front at Onrus and faces west so sunsets can be viewed from the balcony almost every day. This home-from-home is well maintained and comfortably furnished. The en suite master bedroom is spacious and has adequate cupboard space if You happen to spend more than a few days. The beach is a short walk away and the coastal pathway passes just in front of the property. There are a number of rock pools where it is safe to have a dip in the ocean if you prefer not to walk to the beach.
