Located just a 5 min walk from the center of Hermanus. Highly recommend a stay here. We stayed for 2 nights with our 2 year old while doing the garden route. Excellent room and service. Wifi in Room 10 (Purple room) was weak (probably cause it's at the end of the hallway) so we had to use our data. We would download shows on our ipad in the lounge before bedtime.

We had the most amazing weekend at Port Del Mar. From the moment we step foot in to this awesome guesthouse, we were welcomed with warmth and hospitality. Martin and Rochelle attended to all our needs in every way. Our Annex(two bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, dining area and bathroom) were spacious and the attention to detail with the decor and furniture took my breath away. The fire place was an added bonus with the stormy weather we had during our stay. After we came back from a day trip, a basket full of wood were waiting outside of our door. There a full DSTV package, not like other places that only provide a few channels. The Wifi was excellent with no hiccups. Every breakfast that we had were huge and attractive. Martin and Rochelle did not miss a beat with their kindness and warmth. I can recommend this establishment with my whole heart. We were sad to go, but will come back.

I stayed in this guest house in August 2022 for a long weekend. The house was just perfect. I had a lovely large room (worth upgrading to the King Room) with great views and all the amenities I needed.
The house is located in a quiet area but very close to town and beaches. There’s no need for a car, but there was secure parking.

The owner was very accommodating and made sure that everything was taken care of. The rooms were clean and they were cleaned daily.

This place felt like a real haven in Hermanus. Definitely will go back again.

The guesthouse is situated just few steps from the center yet in a very quiet street, so we had the convenience of being close to everywhere, could walk to the center, but we did not get disturbed by any Saturday night noice. The rooms are spacious enough and are spotless clean. The stuff and the owner himself were very kind and willing to assist us with any request. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Martin and Rochelle went more than the extra mile to accommodate our large group of guests with some of them coming and going on an almost daily basis. Guests would change their minds twice a day about departing and staying and the host and hostess would always make a plan with a smile. They became family and we stayed longer because we felt at home and pampered at the same time. Great breakfasts. Loved the Man Cave honesty bar. Thank you, Martin and Rochelle. We will be back soon and we highly recommend your guesthouse to others.

Martin and staff were friendly and helpful, the outside courtyard was beautiful with restful water feature and we stayed in the downstairs self catering apartment which had everything and more that we needed, lots of space and luxury and situated walking distance to town, Hoy's Koppie, a park, tidal pool, beach front walks and Saturday market. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back. Thank you Martin.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place was comfortable and an easy walking distance to the centre of town

Our favourite aspect though was that our dog was welcome and made friends immediately with Happy one of the resident dogs.

It was a short weekend stay but we will be back.

Luxurious accommodation in Hermanus, South Afica. Walking distance from the town center and near restaurants and the sea. Excellent service at affordable rates. Based conveniently near art galleries and exquisite shops. Spacious clean rooms, beautiful interior, safe parking and a child friendly environment. Whale watching, shark diving, hiking trails and wine tasting routes to name a few activities we enjoyed. What a whale of a pleasure staying at Port del Mar. We enjoyed every minute of our stay with host Martin Delport. Highly recommended. We want to thank you and your staff for this memorable holiday.

“Extremely homey - like living in your own furnished apartment. Staff went above board to welcome me. Green conscious and supportive of local art with value based accessories. Short walk to town and sea”
