We stayed here on the recommendation of friends and were pleased we did. We had the room at the top of the stairs with the balcony which was great for whale watching. Its about a ten minute walk into town and has fantastic views. Breakfast was lovely and the welcome and attention from the owner was great. Would recommend.

This beautiful guest house is a must-stay place. Our host, Harald, was gracious and friendly and welcomed us from our first phone call to allowing us to come and have a look at the rooms before deciding. The house is charming with wood floors and the rooms are impeccably clean, comfortable and well appointed. We stayed in the "family unit"... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Avalon on Sea, and would certainly recommend it. The location is perfect, as it's across the road from the coastal path, and just a short walk to the town centre with shops, restaurants etc. The bedroom was spacious, comfortable and clean with an amazing ocean view. The owner was warm and welcoming and... More

This is a great location looking out over the sea with easy walking to the town centre and along to the whale watching port. The room was excellent as was the breakfast. Got good advice about restaurants in the town and had yet another very good meal.

ideally located close to hermanus Center and the beautiful cliff path. If you are lucky to get the room on the first floor, you will enjoy the fantastic view from the balcony. The plunge pool in the yard is small but good to relax. Friendly service.

Avalon on sea is a wonderful place to stay. The location couldn't be better overlooking the cliffs and within a ten minute walk from town and the restaurants. The guest house itself is spotlessly clean and Harold does all he can to ensure a great stay. It's not over the top posh but it ticks all the boxes and we... More
