“Delightful rest and relaxation”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Geheim is situated on the sea front at Onrus and faces west so sunsets can be viewed from the balcony almost every day. This home-from-home is well maintained and comfortably furnished. The en suite master bedroom is spacious and has adequate cupboard space if You happen to spend more than a few days. The beach is a short walk away and the coastal pathway passes just in front of the property. There are a number of rock pools where it is safe to have a dip in the ocean if you prefer not to walk to the beach.

Date of stay: January 2016

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a great place to stay in Hermanus, ideal for children and families. We were made to feel very welcome. Although not located in Hermanus, it is a short drive to the town centre.

Loads of space and very clean. It even has a stairlift for the disabled.

Could not fault it. We would definately go again.

“Sensational Seaside Stay!!”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent four incredible nights at Geheim.

The location is prime with the ocean at your doorstep and Hermanus central just 5 minutes away. There are plenty of rock pools for the kids to enjoy just in front of the house, a sandy beach nearby as well as beach paths for walkers.

Beautifully appointed spacious en-suite bedrooms with crisp linen and fluffy towels set the tone for this upmarket destination. The main bedroom opens it glass sliding doors directly onto a balcony which overlooks the ocean. Sitting in your bed you have the most extraordinary view.

The second bedroom has twin single beds and the last bedroom has a double bedroom with full ensuite bathroom.

Geheim is a self caterers dream! The Van der Riet family have taken time and effort to ensure all the domestic conveniences and more are at your disposal to enjoy your stay. The kitchen is beautiful and well equipped.

Other spoils in the house are DSTV (satellite) and WIFI.

There is a chair lift which is handy for anyone in a wheelchair. The house is suited to families with children too.

For those visiting, I would highly recommend that you take a trip into the Hemel and Aarde Valley. The area is beyond beautiful and if you are a wine lover there are a number of estates located along the way. We made a special trip to Creation Wines and it was superb!

We hope to be back soon!!!
