“An ideal base just a short drive from New Harbour ”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed the peace and quiet away from the whale festival in Hermanus. Secure gated estate near the New Harbour and an ideal base. Book early if you want to eat at Harbour Rock restaurant as was fully booked for our first night. We booked a boat trip from the harbour and enjoyed exploring the spectacular beaches either side of Hermanus. Grotto beach and Kleinmond beach being favourites.
Took a glass of wine each night to the rocks as no.57 is second row from the beach. Lovely sunsets.
Apartment was clean and well equipped and even had The Ryder cup showing on tv!
Bed was our only gripe being rather firm and very creaky!

“Good fun, loads of laughter and totally "sMASHing"”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The ideal breakaway spot for 4 - 6 people. Within walking distance from the beach. Equipped with all you need for a relaxing, fun-filled experience. The decor is welcoming and puts one in a relaxed mode as you enter the front door. The location and immediate facilities allows one to enjoy a relaxed weekend should you wish to simply just park your car and not drive into town and/or visit other tourist attractions. I will most certainly return and will recommend Hermanus Whale View Self Catering to all!

“A magical get-a-away!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Hermanus Whale View Self Catering is an absolute gem! I was lucky enough to celebrate my birthday weekend here with friends. It's quiet, relaxing and with just a quick stroll down the path... it's so close to the sea, definitely one of the best views I've had while enjoying my morning coffee as well as evening sun-downers! What a treat, a little piece of paradise and I will definitely be back again! Thank you Hermanus Whale View Self Catering for making my birthday so memorable!

Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Great holiday stay really close to the breaking waves and a short car ride to the New Harbour and central Hermanus. Accommodation is very good with wifi, dstv, etc. All needs catered for and good security in the complex. The whale sightings were the cherry on the cake!!
