“the best of Hermanus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

What an amazing honeymoon holiday destination, we thoroughly enjoyed every second of our stay at 138 villa marine, the quest house, hospitality and service was 5 star to say the least. We couldn’t have asked for more and we would definitely recommend 138 villa marine to every person that’s looking for an unforgettable experience.
Thank you!!!!
Clintin and Corine Zietsman.

lovely guesthouse, spacious ocean-view room, friendly helpful owners and staff, delicious breakfast. V relaxing. Loved it and would love to return. If you don't manage to get a seaview room, the communal sitting room and terraces are just as good. Didn't realise it wasn't exactly in Hermanus though, but that didn't really matter.

Thank you Jen, Belinda and Katy for making my stay so warm and memorable. You all made me feel so welcome and comfortable. The breakfast that everyone has mentioned is for real.. as a vegetarian I usually get a pretty raw deal when staying away but this was just the best! I had a different meal on each of my 4 mornings, all of which were just yummy. I loved the ambiance, the attention to detail and the feel that all your guests were so valued. Thank you

What an experience! My wife and I went to Hermanus for an anniversary and I chose 138 Marine as our accommodation for 3 nights. We had a wonderful time! Perfect views, attentive staff and absolute perfection to detail. I will recommend this guest house to anybody visiting the area.

Room Tip: As far as I could see, all rooms have sea views

Most amazing stay from our arrival till we left after 4 days, we were spoilt in luxury. As we have travelled all over the world we have never started the day with an incredible breakfast overlooking the ocean as we have experienced here.

What can I say? 138 marine was incredible. Following a 3 night stay in cape town and a short stint on safari, heremanus was a welcome calm after a busy week. From the moment we stepped through the door we were greeted with the most fantastic, homely welcome we have ever had. It was as if we had known the family for years. This hospitality was welcomed on what was a suitable stormy, grey afternoon. The friendly approach, impeccable presentation of the house, attention to detail and sheer WANT to impress and please, it did all of these. Needless to say we were blown away to learn that a restaurant had been booked for us for our first night, as had transport, we just were both speechless. Never had we had a more enjoyable stay, anywhere. And I have travelled to many fantastic places, this topped them all. We were treated like royalty and 138 did everything possible to make our honeymoon unforgettable. We can't wait to return. Thanks!

Room Tip: Go for nothing less than the oyster! Gorgeous view and bath!

A newly constructed house converted into a 3 bedroomed guest house with the most spectacular seaviews from the communal sitting room at first floor. The breakfasts are imaginatively composed and very well cooked. The staff could not have been more committed to helping us have a "good holiday".
The only drawback is you have to drive to the nearest restaurants but there are a selection of good eating places within a short distance.
