“A great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

We had a marvelous time at the Hermanus Beach Villa! This guest house is such a great place to stay! We had the Walker Suite which was gorgeous an we had a great view to the sea! The breakfast was very delicious with a great choice of everything! The owners and their staff are very friendly and helpful and we were sorry that we only stayed for 2 nights! Definitively, we recommend this place and would like to return soon!

The room we were in had a marvellous view of the sea and a large balcony where we could sit out and watch whales. The hosts Charl & Rhianna are welcoming and very helpful. They booked restaurants for us and arranged taxis to get us to and from the restaurants. The views from the bedrooms and the public room are superb. The villa is in Voelklip about a 10 minute drive from Hermanus, the villa is right on the coastal path where you can walk along the cliffs and watch the whales.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this villa for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay so much that at some point, we refused to head outdoors.

Lodging/room – The lodging overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and we could watch the whales from the balcony of our room. We stayed in Dolphin room A which was on the top floor. The room was spacious, bright, and clean with white contemporary furnishings. The bed was 5-star standard and extremely comfortable. The shower was also commendable, producing an invigorating flow of water and steady temperature. Free but limited wifi access was available.

Food – One of the better breakfasts we have had amidst the high standards set by various lodgings/B&Bs along the Garden Route. There was a wide breakfast choice, continental, Full English, French toasts etc.

Service/Staff – Excellent staff who are helpful and prompt in making trip arrangements and restaurant bookings for us. We were also treated to some complimentary wine in the room upon arrival, and the staff brought us hot water bottles at night even though the plush quilt covers were sufficient to keep us warm.

Parking – Parking was alongside the beach villa, on the grass patches, not in private lots/garages but safe.

Note – The villa has a few levels only accessible by stairs so it will not be advisable to stay in rooms on the higher levels if you are unfit for stairs. Excessive luggage is also not ideal so we actually packed a separate lightweight luggage and left the rest in the car.

We would definitely recommend this beach villa to those visiting Hermanus.

My boyfriend and i stayed here for 2 nights in september. We arrived very hungry in the evening and the lovely owners organised a taxi to take us to town for dinner straight away. The next morning (and again the following morning ) had the best breakfast in Hermanus, possibly SA!! Make sure you have the cooked breakfast. Stunning views, great bed and shower, lovely terrace and overall very comfortable. Thank you to the owners for allowing us to braai under the stars on National Braai Day.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here in September 2012 for 2 nights,(not long enough) and loved it. We were lucky enough to stay in the large sea view room with amazing views. The weather was not good and it was chilly on a night but, not to worry as when we climbed into bed, there was 2 hot water bottles, what a joy. On our first night we came back to a bottle of sparkling wine, rose petals,and candles in the room and bathroom which was wonderful, it certainly added to the romance of the trip. The owners were great and did everything to make it a memorable stay. The breakfasts were very good and we would certainly recommend staying here.It is however, a few Ks from Hermanus, but, there is an amazing walk along the sea edge, where we saw the whales from and it was good exercise after the hearty breakfast. When we left and during our stay at a safari the owner tracked me down to let me know I had left something at the guest house. I have just received my item back in the UK and want to say a huge thank you for going to the effort of getting it back to me. We would certainly return but, in the warmer weather.

Room Tip: The large corner room with amazing views of the sea. (Top Floor)

We did a two week trip in South Africa from France in January 2012 and the Hermanus Beach Villa was our favorite place :
A very nice, clean and comfortable white bedroom with a nice sea view.
Owners were very welcoming.
Breakfast was delicious with also a nice sea view.
For sure, we recommend that place and would like to return soon !
