“home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The Team offers excellent service and hospitality. The rooms are well kept and cosy. The view from the balcony is stunning. If you are lucky as we are you see dolphins passing by .Beach lovers and those avoiding the noise of central locations will enjoy this quiet place with its nice garden.

We had truly wonderful stay. (9 Nights) The beds are world-class. The rooms are immaculately clean and very comfortable. My thank you to the housekeepers. The breakfast is scromptous, very "lekker" and prepared with great attention to detail. The staff is warm and friendly and alway has a smile and warm greeting for the guests.
The hosts Charl and Riana and team go out of their way to make the guests feel welcome and comfortable. They are wonderful hosts and have great knowledge of the area.
The location is absolute terrific, a truly special, one-of-a-kind place. The perfect spot to stay a week and get the battery recharged.
We came as guests and left as friends - we will be back, that is a promise !

Hermanus Beach Villa is fantastically located with views over Walker Bay and with direct access to the cliff path and best beaches in the area. The hosts are very friendly and the accommodation is lovely. The office is extremely well managed by Lauren who even jump started our car when we left the lights on the night before. Would recommend the Walker Bay suite. Definitely intend to return.

We spent 2 nights here, and loved it. We had a Dolphin room which had a perfect balcony facing the ocean The views are excellent, as is breakfast. They have a patio set up and indoor with lots of windows so the views remain good. Breakfast is a combination of full, hot, done to order and pastries, fruit, cheeses set out. The walk to the beach is 2 minutes, and once there the walk is expansive. One head's up is that this villa is located among other villas away from the "centre" of Hermanus. We think you'd need a car to get around. They have an honesty bar where you can grab snacks and wine and beer and just make a note of what you owe for, which was great. Hermanus is so lovely, and if you want a few nights of total beach relaxation, do not skip this town!

Nearby is a great restaurant (Dutchies) with excellent service and good, casual food (cheap!). Dutchies waves corkage fee if you eat there and bring your own wine.

Set outside of main town but beautiful view of the bay. Very friendly helpful staff, breakfast was very good. Gave us lots of advice and helped with bookings of restaurants, boat trips etc. Room slightly small for what I expected and we had to have a blow up bed for our daughter in the corner but this did not spoil a beautiful area with amazing views looking out to the sea. Wonderful to wake up and look out at the whales!!

This is a guest house set outside the main town is the very quiet residential area of Mosselberg.
a feature of this guest house is the fact you will have great views of Walker bay and we saw whales from our balcony.

We found the rooms we stayed in (Baleen Room) somewhat small for our liking as was the very small en suite. We have been spoilt by much larger rooms and en suites elsewhere in our travels along the garden Route.

That aside the owners who live in and their team were extremely friendly and nothing was to much trouble. They offered lots of tips on what to do and where to eat and even made reservations for us in the town and this ensured we got tables in the best positions.

The breakfasts were a feast and made up for the smaller rooms.

We had a very stay in this B&B. The breakfasts were very good. The service was also very good.
The rooms were a bit small, but most likely because we are used to a bit more.
We combined the 2 Baleen rooms into one, which makes a difference when going as a family. You have an adjoining door.
The views were quite good too, but people on the higher floors have a better view.
You are literally on the beach and the walk. Hermanus central is a bit of a walk away.

Room Tip: Combine the 2 Baleen rooms for a nice Suite or choose a higher floor for a good view of the ocean an...
