This is a beautiful and well presented guest house overlooking the golf course.

Fernkloof Nature Reserve is nearby.

The upstairs large African suite has a distant view also of the sea, with a large balcony at eye level with the sunbirds and other birds visiting their flowering trees. This suite also has a large sitting room with old colonial memorabilia and a wealth of interesting books about Africa and the past.

There was flatscreen TV, fridge with cold water and beer, courtesy tea and coffee tray. There was no a/c but there is a pedestal fan and when we were there at least, it was cool enough with the window and balcony doors open.

The house has a delightful garden overlooking the small swimming pool and delicious breakfasts are taken on the patio in appropriate weather.

There is parking on the drive.

Gail and Isak Kenny are excellent and thoughtful hosts and will offer suggestions as to activities, restaurant reservations, etc.

We were near the end of the whale watching season but did see a few from the excellent coastal path and which has several accessible places of "entry".

Room Tip: The upstairs African suite is spacious with own sitting room and two balconies.

I´ve stayed here a number of times during periods of work in Western Cape province.
It is always a pleasure to come "home" to Fernkloof 43, and the owners, Gail and Izak Kenney has become my South African "parents".
3 Beautiful appartments where you always feels welcome, wonderful surroundings with the golfcourse and the mountain just around the corner.
I love it!

Room Tip: The two room "African Suite" with the big roof terras is stunning!

All was excelent! The room, the stay, Gail & Izaak... they made us feel at home, and helped us a lot during our stay in Hermanus. In Fernkloof all details are nice (furniture, beds, baths), and if you need something, you will have it in a while...Lovely!

We had a great stay here thanks to Gail and Izaks hospitatility.
We stayed here for 3 nights in March,myself,hubby,brother and his wife,who previously had stayed here 7yrs ago.I think Gail even remembered them,lol.
We were in the African themed room and it was gorgeous,so welcoming and with everything that you needed.
Gail and Izak are such a lovely couple and very informative about Hermanus area and lots of tips on where to eat.
If we are ever back in this lovely area of South Africa we would defiantly,defiantly stay here.
Home from home.
P.s. Love your breakfasts Gail

Room Tip: Every room is great
