We stayed in Hermanus at Harbour Vue for 2 nights in December, based on other reviews, and we were not disappointed by our choice. Our room faced the sea and had a large bath and separate walk-in shower. It was the perfect place to sit and enjoy the views with a glass of wine, before heading out to dinner. Barry... More

We stayed at Harbour Vue for one night this past August. It felt like we were staying at a home away from home, rather than a guest house! Everything from the ambience to the breakfast was wonderful. We had a gorgeous view of the ocean from our bedroom, although we didn't see any whales from our balcony. The location was... More

All the reviews which say how wonderful this guest house is have got it right - it is such a lovely place to stay and Barry is such a character! We would not hesitate to stay here again; our room was so comfortable and attractively laid out. With the whales right outside (and in the pretty town of Hermanus) it... More

We booked our stay with Barry at the Harbour Vue based upon the reviews it had recieved, all I can say is that it is fantastic in every way. Barry had the St George flag out for us and was so friendly and accomodating, his enthusiasm for us to enjoy our stay was infectious! The only downside is that we... More

Arrived at the Harbour Vue after a long drive from Wilderness, feeling slightly jaded, only to be greeted by an Irish tricolour flying outside the Guest House (the flag was rotated depending on the nationality of the guests arriving. A lovely touch !). We were greeted warmly by Jan & Sanmarie (who had waited in for our arrival). We were... More

I cannot praise this B&B enough. My wife, her parents & myself stayed here for one night. But the only unfortunate thing was we could only stay one night. We had a fabulous experience. The hospitality was so genuine and welcoming. We were gobsmacked when we were showed our rooms. They were so tastefully decorated. We have stayed in some... More

We stayed with Jan and Sanmarie for three nights in january 2008. The experience was quite wonderful. The welcome could not have been more genuine or warm. I had a bad back so Sanmarie and Flora carried our bags to a superb suite! The decor of the longe, bathroom and bedroom was sumptuous. Believe me my wife and I have... More

We stayed in the Harbour Vue for one night and wished we had stayed longer! From the minute we walked in the door our experience was fantastic. Sanmarie was so friendly and helpful, she had even booked us a table in a restaurant, just in case! The house was perfectly located and we had a great walk all along the... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights in the Harbour Vue Guest House in mid October 2007. Sanmarie and Jan are perfect hosts who cannot do enough to make sure your stay is memorable. They are there when you need them yet fade into the background to let you go about enjoying yourself without intruding. The guest house is gorgeous,... More
