“A great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

A lovely welcoming guest house with great views over the sea. Rosemary was a very attentive and helpful hostess, and gave us good tips for a delightful meal and coastal walk in Hermanus. We only wished we had stayed more than one night!

Stayed March 2013, traveled as a couple

I have recently stayed there one night but immediately wished that I had booked it for more. As soon as I arrived I was given a very warm welcome by Louis and Jena. The guesthouse is beautifully decorated with greatest attention paid to every details. And here I mean every details, starting from having their own label on the beauty products they provide you with in your room, etc. With the nightly turndown service you not only get some sweets but will be given some words of wisdom as well as the weather report for the next day. Louis and Jena are not only great hosts but also express genuine interest in the people who stay there. After having a delicious breakfast they gave me some suggestions where to go and which way to drive but what impressed me the most was the little gift I received and also, the personalized follow up e-mail that they sent me the next day.

I enjoyed my short stay at the guesthouse and felt like I just spent the night at a luxury hotel - only, it was much better than that!

Stayed here in March 2013 on the way from Plett to Cape Town only for a night with our little daughter who is 1,5 years old.

Very nice, luxury guest house with spacious and clean rooms and nice ensuite bathroom. Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast.

The location is Sandbaai and NOT directly in Hermanus, this is the only little flaw. As we had a rental car (as most people do), this was not a big problem foor us.

Many thanks Rosemary and team, we had a great stay!

I've stayed with Louis and Jena twice and will certainly book there again! The rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable and the breakfast out of this world. The attention to detail is noticeable and to sit on the stoep with a glass of sherry is the best way to end your day, watching the sun set over the ocean!
Your proudly South African service deserves the awards!

Sadly only one night,but a wonderful experience.Firstly the warm welcome from Rosemary and then from Jena and Louis. We were in the Coral room and my wife thoroughly enjoyed lying in the bath looking out over the ocean. The suggestions for dining in the evening were first rate with taxi laid on at very reasonable rates. Quite superb breakfast and then thoughtful and friendly email when we got home. Exemplary attention to detail. It thoroughly deserves it's No 1 status.
