“There's no place like home!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

From the moment I walked into my room at the Hermanus Beach Villa I felt like I was home. It was clean, fresh, spacious and beautifully decorated in tones that throw your body into a relaxed mode. I was on the second floor; the view, spectacular. Even better, a balcony to walk out on to watch the sun set or to just sit and smell the sea air. The beach was just a short walk down the hill. Breakfast was amazing each morning, especially the omelets. I came to South Africa on R&R from Afghanistan (I’m from the U.S.). I was looking for a place to decompress. Never dreamed of finding a piece of Heaven as well. Charl and Riana were warm and forever accommodating, as were the staff. They made sure I was well taken care of. Whether you make use of all the activities around Hermanus Beach or just want to sit and “chill” like I did, this is the place to go. I’m just sorry I missed the whales. That’s the only thing that could have made my stay any better. Next time….

We stayed here for 2 nights during our holiday around the Western Cape. You could not get a better setting. We had the suite upstairs and the balcony gave you uninterupted whale viewings. The service was excellent, helping to book a restaurant before we arrived and organising a tuk tuk to take us into Hermanus.
Breakfasts were also very good - the best muffins I had throghout our holiday. The car was washed without asking - another great touch
I found Charl absolutely charming and a wonderfully warm person, but we didn't get the same feeling from the rest of the team.
Hermanus Beach Villa is in a beautiful position and you can walk to 2 beaches in less than 10 minutes. However, I think I would have been a little disappointed if I had been in one of the other rooms. The whole place felt like it need some TLC and a bit of a refurbishment (for its 4 stars).

A comfortable bedroom but a very small bathroom. It was useful to have a microwave available (even if we didn't use it). The staff were very helpful, although only standing in for the owners and sorted out a problem we had with a trip booking. The breakfasts were lovely and there were a lot of nice little touches.

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.
