“The best guesthouse ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014

This was the best guesthouse stay we have ever had!! Stunning location, beautiful decor and amazing attention to detail made it really memorable. The service was also exceptional and we will definitely be back!

What a fantastic place.Great views and great accomodation. loved the decor all over the house. Very calming, peaceful vibes. Great host. She even made a dinner reservation for us before we got there ---with the option to cancel . Much appreciated. Saved us the running around. Will certainly make a plan to go back.

We had a great stay at 138 Marine Beachfront. We were lucky to do a whale tour and to actually see some whales. Also, the recommendations for food and lunch, that Belinda gave us were excellent. The room was clean and light.

Thank you!

We stayed here over Christmas and honestly we couldn't have ask for anywhere better to stay. We had a proper Christmas breakfast with allllll the trimmings! Delicious!! We stayed in the Abalone room and had our own door leading on the balcony with the ocean just there!! The ladies are very friendly and very helpful!! There is definitely no mistake in rating this lovely place no.1 in Hermanus!
