Took my wife on a weekend stay to celebrate her 70th Birthday. The trip did not disappoint. Our host Marijke was absolutely charming. Her guest house is immaculate with nice swimming pools and a gorgeous patio. Breakfasts were extremely good. The room was perfect with a large comfy bed with en-suite, parking and basic utilities/essentials were provided free of charge, good maid service and very quiet.
Marijke not only gives advice on to where to go she actually gave my wife a lovely bunch of flowers as a birthday gift.. The bonus was seeing a mother whale and her calf frollicking 50 meters off the beach!

Lovely homely place. Clean and welcoming. We enjoyed the pool too. You can easily walk the coastal path to the centre of Hernanus, enjoy a meal and get a taxi back. Everything you need. It is close to the main road and in the garden you can hear it but it didn't bother us at night

We stayed one night while visiting friends in Hermanus the house and gardens are beautifully kept and our host was very helpful.
The property felt secure and had everything we needed for our stay,parking was available outside the property.
We would be happy to return anytime we are back in the area.

The host was not friendly and the room that we stayed in was not worth the price we paid. The room was advertised as a terrace room but the terrace was not big enough to sit on. Our room. Was directly next to the garage and laundry room so there are always noice next to us.

The host does not present the South African warm welcoming culture.

We had a fab stay and Marijke helped us store some of our sports gear in her garage. She also invited us to join her and the other guests for some evening drinks on the verandah to create a friendly atmosphere where guests can also connect with each other. Room was lovely. Definitely recommend!

Our family spent a few days in Hermanus at the guest house. The service from our host Marijke and the staff was excellent.

The guest house facilities are in great condition and our breakfast every morning was very good. Marijke was very helpful to book restaurants and sight seeing ventures.

The kids really enjoyed the pool and we will definitely recommend the guest house for any accommodation seekers in Hermanus. Another plus is the location right next to Hermanus golf club 🏌🏼

beautiful guesthouse on walking distance from the impressive coastline where you can see whales passing by just sitting on the rocks. Great location to explore the hemel & aarde valley with it's impressive wineries. Lovely breakfast, great suggestions from host Marijke in what to do and where to go. Superclean and with attention to detail: a great place to stay!

A very friendly and well run B&B. The majority of the bedrooms are spacious and tastefully furnished.
There is plenty of choice at breakfast. The guest house has a beautiful garden and pool and is very well positioned on the Stanford side of Hermanus, between the lovely sandy beach and the town.

We drove directly here after an overnight flight to Cape Town and was a great place to start our holiday by beautiful coastal scenery. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and a lovely breakfast was served on the terrace/garden area. The beach was just across the road where you could take a lovely clifftop walk along to several beautiful beaches. And we had a lovely walk in the nearby Fernkloof Nature Reserve. We only stayed for one night and definitely needed another!
