Our home was built with holidays in mind. The huge advantage to the house is its location. It has amazing sea and mountain views from the upstairs balcony, so even if you are not on the beach itself, you feel like you are close by. We are walking distance to the cliff path, great beaches, coffee houses and some of the best land-based whale watching spots. Hermanus is only an hour and a half from Cape Town, 45 minutes from Somerset West and our home is only 15 minutes from the Hermanus CBD. Our home was only built two years ago and is still in the 'settling' phase meaning that cracks are forming which is to be expected. The house is designed so that each family/ couple can have their own private space (either taking the upstairs two bedrooms or the two downstairs bedrooms) with all of the bedrooms ensuite (with the exception of the...
Our home was built with holidays in mind. The huge advantage to the house is its location. It has amazing sea and mountain views from the upstairs balcony, so even if you are not on the beach itself, you feel like you are close by. We are walking distance to the cliff path, great beaches, coffee houses and some of the best land-based whale watching spots. Hermanus is only an hour and a half from Cape Town, 45 minutes from Somerset West and our home is only 15 minutes from the Hermanus CBD. Our home was only built two years ago and is still in the 'settling' phase meaning that cracks are forming which is to be expected. The house is designed so that each family/ couple can have their own private space (either taking the upstairs two bedrooms or the two downstairs bedrooms) with all of the bedrooms ensuite (with the exception of the children’s upstairs area). Because we have kids of our own, we know what its like to loose your children to a screen. This is why we haven't installed TVs or Wifi. We want this place to be where families connect and unwind when away by playing boardgames, bike riding, going to the beach or just reading a book. If you need to access Wifi, there are many establishments in Hermanus where you can go and work for a few hours. The house is ideally equipped for two families as three (although can be accommodated) is very hard on the space. We also ask that you be respectful at all times and to treat our home as you would like someone to treat yours. We have designated beach furniture that you are welcome to use but we ask that you do not take any of our deck chairs, blankets, cushions or bath towels down to the beach. Wind, is a reality of life in the Cape which is why we have made allowance for it with the design of the house with an interior courtyard. This is fantastic as it has shade and blocks out most of the wind. There are two braai areas, one on the ground floor leading to the garden and the other upstairs on the balcony. There is also off street parking for two cars. This property is strictly non smoking so ask that only non smokers book. We also ask that you keep noise to a minimum after 10pm at night as Voelklip is a quiet area which is why it is so popular. We are very close to the De Hoop Nature reserve and there are many hiking and biking trails there. Just behind us too there is a lovely mountain range that has some very enjoyable trails ranging from strenous to relaxed. Watch out for snakes in summer and it is advisable to always take plenty of water and sun block with you. Walker Bay, is a protected marine wildlife sanctuary. That's one of the reasons that the Southern Right Whales, come so close to the shores and we have been voted the best land based whale viewing site in Africa. Just down the road from us we have shark cage diving for the very adventurous that you do need to pre-book. There are also whale tours available.

About the neighbourhood
The famous Hemel and Aarde wine valley is about a 20 minute drive from our home, with the area boasting amazing restaurants. Our home is a 2 minute walk from the Cliff path, a lovely walk that talks you from Grotto beach all the way into Sandbaai, taking about 2 hours in total. It is a must do! The views are incomparable and it is easy enough for the whole family to do with the advantage that you can turn around at any time if you do not want to go the whole distance. You can stop off at one of our favourite locals, Dutchies, at the end of your walk, for a cocktail or some food. Three fantastic restaraunts are within walking distance, Lizettes (asian-style cuisine), The Daily bread (fantastic breakfasts!) and Dutchies, which is on the beach
There unfortunately is not much in the way of public transport in Hermanus so we do recommend driving into town. However i you are justing want to pull into Voelklip there are very safe cycling paths throughout the area and it is great to cycle around or walk.
