A great place to stay. Harald is a fantastic host and went hugely out of his way (in fact all the way to Cape Town) to return some clothes our children forgot to pack! A highly recommended establishment.

I found my stay very enjoyable. The guest house owner was very attentive and friendly and the facilities were very comfortable. Would be better with DSTV though. I particularly liked that there was inside parking, sufficient heating and the rooms were clean. The breakfast service was also excellent

Excellent value for money, well priced accommodation with perfect view of the sea from the upstairs room - was worth paying a bit extra for the view. Good position, close to town and an easy walk to restaurants and shops.

Enjoyed our stop in Hermanus at The Avalon and loved that is was walking distance to town. Our room and bathroom were clean, we enjoyed the breakfast in the morning, had lots of choices. The owner was very helpful in suggesting restaurant options all within walking distance. Would recommend this as a place to stay. Great location, with secure parking.

We stayed with 2 families and all the rooms on the ground floor were occupied by us, which was relaxing as the kids could easily walk from one room to the other. The rooms are spacious as well as the bathrooms. Our 3 wild boys enjoyed the plunch pool. Here we do not want to miss to thank Harald to... More

We had the upstairs room and you cannot imagine a better view. One could be there all year long just waiting for the Whales to visit the bay. Great location, fantastic view, quality breakfast, very friendly hosts !
