About the neighbourhood
Our cottage is in Sandbaai, which is a suburb of Hermanus, and we are about five minutes' drive from the centre of town, on a quiet street and very close to the sea, and a lovely walk along a paved path along the rocks to Onrus. Our neighbourhood is quiet and very friendly, and there is a local Superette and four fine restaurants very close by.
