My fiancé and I spent one night between travels and it was such a comfortable stay. The location is perfect for exploring the town with many restaurants and things to do close by. Everyone was so helpful and kind and the communication was fantastic. The breakfast in the morning was perfect and fresh, the freshly baked zucchini cake was amazing. We hope to return one day.

Thank you very much for having us. It was wonderful and we felt very welcomed. The apartment was super nice with a private terrace and the breakfast just perfect. Super nice hosts! There is a nice pool in the garden and near by the wonderful beach. Great location.

One of the loveliest places I have ever stayed. Dave and AnneMarie are the kindest hosts. The room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We stayed in this up floor room with a beautiful terrace where Dave served us an incredible breakfast with homemade goodies. The location is great, just a short walk from the center.

This is the third time we have stayed at the Potting shed and the second we have stayed in the Studio room. The place is spotless and very comfortable. Dave's breakfasts are legendry and both Annamarie and Dave make you feel most welcome. Its a short walk down to the coastal path where you can have a good walk to town to enjoy the restaurants Hermanus has to offer or further on to some great beach spots including beach bars!
