We ended up a WIld at Heart because of a double booking at the place we originally planned to stay at....and it was such a wonderful experience! Of all the B and Bs we stayed at in South Africa, this was the cleaniest, most accomodating and well run. Vikki and her husband did a great job setting up the B and B. There is a separate on-site cottage and rooms in the main house. There is even an honesty bar, great patio and lounge to hang out it. It was walking distance (about 7 mins) to a beautiful beach- which was actually nicer than the main (and more crowded) beaches in Hermanus. It was also a 5 min walk to some great hiking trails. The breakfast was delicious and the owners went out of their way to set up tours for us.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated outside of Hermanus town centre, Wild At Heart is adjacent to the Walker Bay Nature Reserve, therefore ensuring that guests enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay. The famous Grotto Blue Flag Beach is a mere five minute walk and the hiking trails start next door. Unwind after a busy day sight seeing in your own private gard or on the patio with a sundowner and watch the incredible sunsets over the bay and the brilliant display of a starry African night sky. For those chilly evenings relax in the lounge toasting marshmallows on the crackling open fire. ... more less
