We spent a glorious long weekend at La Gratitude in Hermanus. The stunning location must be the best in Hermanus. The villa is perched on the cliffs overlooking Grotto beach with private beach access and not a neighbour in sight. The Herbert Baker designed family home is a great mixture of old world charm and modern luxury. Simon was the perfect host facilitating easy access and promptly dealing with any minor queries. I can highly recommend staying there - we will certainly be returning.
Our stay at La Gratitude was perfection! The wonderful memories of 26 years ago just came flooding back and of course, new memories added. The added pool, jacuzzi and outdoor grill made it even more enjoyable. The views are absolutely gorgeous and we saw a whale or two as well. The indoor fireplaces created a warm and cosy atmosphere. The games and books available makes it fun for the whole family. My son's 21st birthday will always be remembered at La Gratitude. Nozi's presence was a bonus indeed, such a lovely lady. Many thanks to Dr Pickstone-Taylor for everything, much appreciated.
We had the most amazing holiday at La Gratitude! Everything was just perfect, the views, house, pool, fireplaces, jacuzzi and even the weather. It was one of those holidays that is going to be impossible to beat so we will most definitely be returning. Cannot recommend enough - just stunning.
Great views! Good sized pool and the hot tub was fantastic! Great outdoor space for the kids to play. We enjoyed a great family weekend away. check in was smooth and the owner was very generous in allowing a late checkout
We stayed at La Gratitude for four nights. We had terrible and good weather. The house was warm and cosy during the cold days, with a fireplace and a large kitchen to cook and hang out. On the warm days, we sat on the stoep and watched at least 6 whales in the waves. The beach right in front of the house is a beautiful beach and there is a walking path along the coast. The house is a historic house in the best location and opposite the beach. The interior is tastefully done. The beds and bed linen are luxurious and comfortable. The kitchen is large and well equipped. There is a jacuzzi and pool and a great outdoor dining area. Highly recommended!
