The location is great and you enjoy the ocean view from your room. It is not far from the center of the town. The room was very clean and spacious. We got everything as stated in their website. The owners are so kind and helpful. We enjoyed our stay there and we highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a meaningful stay in Hermanus.

The guest house offers stunning sea views, within walking distance of the town. Charmaine is a very friendly and helpful hostess. We enjoyed the wonderful fresh breakfasts. Our room was well-appointed, with a comfy bed and easy chairs for whale watching. Highly recommended.
