The most beautiful modern house decorated with flair on the beachfront overlooking the rocks and ocean. We stayed in the mussel room with side sea view and private deck. Beautiful bathroom with walk in shower and separate tub. Double sinks and bathrobes and slippers. Complimentary sweets biscuits and sherry provided along with tea coffe etc. A very comfortable room.

We arrived to find they had booked us into a restaurant for our evening meal which was ideal as we didn't know the area and we were very happy with their choice. If you like attention to detail this is the place for you. When we came back that evening there was a scroll with the next day's weather an...

We stayed here for one night on our way to Plettenberg bay and after arriving late that day we wished we had got there sooner! Beautiful views from our room and there was so much detail in every part of the guest house. Belinda was very helpful, giving us lots of information on the area and our route for the...

This was our 5th stay at 138. Genuinely a home from home, so relaxed and comfortable. We were so spoilt by the fab breakfasts. We stayed 3 nights and always think it is too short. Thanks so much to all the staff it's always wonderful to return.

First two nights of our honeymoon spent at this lovely guesthouse. Beautiful view and great staff; their tips on what to see/do are invaluable. They pay lots of attention to detail and their special efforts make your stay so enjoyable.

I had 2 fantastic nights at 138 overlooking the ocean. Attention to detail and friendliness of everyone was second to none. Great restaurants already booked by Desre prior to arrival so no pain there! I'll be back soon to see Desre and her team!

Excellent breakfast. Excellent Service. Fantastic walk. Not great for swimming but the ocean is very very cold so I doubt I'd swim anywhere in Hermauns even if it did have a proper swimming beach. But the view is AMAZING! Super tranquil and really allows one to get into a great relaxed mood.

We have stayed in Hermanus several times but this was the first time we stayed in Sand Bay. The distance from Hermanus (about 6km) means you need a car or cab to get into town where the bulk of the restaurants are. They had thoughtfully booked restaurants for each night of our stay - all bookings could have been cancelled...

The team here are fantastic and every detail is considered. Even down to making dinner reservations for us, in case we did not have anything organised - which we hadn't. Overall the property is very well appointed. Breakfast is a treat with almost your own personal chef. If I had one comment and it would only be a small one,...
