We had our own space - personally would have loved air con as it was hot and not much breeze, that said our hosts were wonderful, breakfast is in their place - and the pool etc. is on the same level. the two self contained bedrooms are down below - with sliding doors to the outside space. Beds are huge and bathrooms too lovely residential area so felt very safe

Very nice and clean B&B in quiet neighbourhood of Hermanus. The town could be reached by walking but it is relatively far (2.5km). Taxis are inexpensive, though, and always arrived within latest 15-20 minutes. Tracey and Louwrence are very friendly and helpful hosts. The breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit salad every morning and perfectly cooked eggs (as you like them).

Nice large comfortable room in this super house. Communal areas very well designed and feels a bit like being in your own place. Tracey very friendly and informative and looked after us exceedingly well. Location slightly out of town but in a good quiet residential area. Handy for the golf course. Recommend Fernkloof nature reserve for superb walking. Would happily stay again.

I had a great stay here. Tracy n Lawrence were excellent hosts. The breakfast is prepared by them daily. They cater for Vegetarians n Vegans. The house itself is stunning as well as the facilities. The neighborhood felt safe.

This guesthouse, in a very safe location is located only minutes from the center. Our host, Tracey, made the stay very special. I would definitely spend another night here. As for the rating. I was thinking of giving only four points because the hot water didn't work at first and the whole interior design seem to be a bit of age but the Tracey gave such a war welcome and hey,... don't forget the price. After all the value was perfect.

Stayed for 2 nights in a downstairs room with its own small patio area. This was a nice spot for eve drink & we ate diy meal there one eve. Well located if u have a car. Nice quiet area in the Heights. Room, bathroom & kitchenette all pleasant. Could do with attention to some damp areas but the warm welcome, friendliness of our hosts & lovely food was our main focus. Tracey also thoughtfully gave us an anniversary card & treat which was lovely.
