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!

We loved staying here. Recommended by our friends and we now know why. We had a lovely welcome from Doreen and a spacious, very clean and pleasant room. Top quality linen, comfortable bed and great shower. Annamarie and Dave are friendly hosts and their breakfast was one of the best we’ve had anywhere - beautifully presented with home-made bread, cake and preserves. Highly recommended!

What a little gem to find Annamarie and David and all the staff made us so welcome breakfast on the patio was amazing. We were travelling with our daughter and fiance around South Africa and if we went back to Hermanus we would definitely stay again

We stayed 2000 and loved this place. Alas we were unable to travel 2021. Dave and Annamarie moved our stay and deposit until this year without any fuss or penalty which cannot be said for many venues. We stayed here for 6 nights in their amazing studio apartment. The Potting Shed is close to the golf course and town. Lovely little pool and everything you want including Dave's scrumptious brekkie. As soon as we book our flights for next year our next booking will be the Potting Shed.

Dave and Annamarie are amazing guest house owners and hosts. The staff are friendly, kind and helpful. Annamarie booked some activities for us such as Shark Cage Diving and Sea Kayaking. If you want to know the best spots in Hermanus, just ask, they have it all covered. The breakfast was absolutely superb just as stated on the advertisement, thank you Dave! The overall stay was comfortable, warm and welcoming. Thank you for your hospitality, I'm sure we will see you again.
