Thank you to Jenna and the team at 138 Marine. You absolutely never seem to dissapoint. Hard days, special occasions, or just needing to breath vitamin sea...138 Marine is the perfect place to be. The clean yet comfortable home away from home feeling is priceless. It is any ocean lover's dream. Waking up to the smell of scrumptious breakfast is amazing and one feels spoilt as soon as you walk in the front door. Comfort meets style and elegance... See you soon! And thank you once again Nicky and Mark

My husband and I spent a VERY relaxing four days at this beautiful guesthouse. The Oyster room was pure luxury with its magnificent sea views and classic comfort. Thank you to all the staff for their warm hospitality and helpfulness. And let’s not forget to mention the “out of this world” breakfasts!! A delicious spread awaited us each morning which fuelled us as we hit the nearby Hemel and aarde mountain bike trails. We hope to be back soon.

One of my absolute favourite guesthouses - we celebrated our anniversary and Desre, Belinda and the team went above and beyond. Comfortable room to sleep in, the breakfasts were our best meals of the day and wonderful to be able sit in the lounge, admiring the sea view, with access to a fridge, where one can store one's own drinks for a sundowner. We will be returning again!

Had the loveliest stay at 138 Marine in Sandbaai! Stunning views RIGHT ON the ocean, with arguably the best sunset view in Hermanus from the balcony. Jena & Louis were gracious hosts, making us totally feel at home. The room was spacious & very tidy, breakfast is good - the place has it all for a nice little break-away. Can definitely recommend it, and will surely be back!
