“Would love to return for whale watching!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Great position ,situated in a quiet residential area of Hermanus, just metres from the Coastal Path so within a short walk of 2 lovely beaches Voelklip and Grotto. The rooms were modern and comfortable offering wonderful views of the ocean. Riana and all her staff were extremely friendly and always helpful. We have stayed in Hermanus several times before and this B & B has been the best in terms of quality and value. Would love to return for "whale watching season".

Room Tip: Higher the room the better.

What a find this villa was. Located right on the waterfront with marvellous views and great walks along the beach paths. Gorgeous views and wonderful rooms. Riana and Charl are marvellous hosts and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Look forward to our next visit.

Riana and Charl are the most charming and helpful hosts of Hermanus Beach Villa. The staff are really friendly and can't do enough for you. It is situated just A few metres from the coast path and is only a 10 minute walk to a lovely long beach called Grotto Beach one way and less than 5 minutes the other way to lovely coves where people surf. It is a short drive into Hermanus or you can be picked up in a Tuk tuk if you prefer. We intend to visit again next year.

Located right on the water, this charming B & B is located in a lovely neighborhood and offers fantastic value! Gorgeous views - waking up to the sound of the ocean is a dream and you can walk a few minutes and be on the beach. The rooms were super comfortable, modern, and clean. Restaurants were about a 8 min drive away. Hermanus is a really nice town - not overly developed. The service level here is excellent! Rianna is a superb host as was the young lady running the office. Stellar service - stellar views. Would come back for sure!

We stayed for 3 nights in the Walkerbay Suite. The room is very nicely furnished, cozy and spacious with a great bathroom. Service and breakfast at Hermanus Beach Villa were also absolutely great (breakfast was among our favourites during our stay in South Africa).
The guesthouse is located right at the beach. What we enjoyed very much was that Grotto Beach (our favourite) was in walking distance, allowing long morning and afternoon walks along the beach. To the city centre where all the great restaurants are, it's a 5 minute drive only.
We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to come back any time.

This rates as one of the best B&B's we have had the pleasure of staying. Clean comfortable room overlooking the sea near Grotto Beach in Hermanus. 5 Star breakfast, the hosts have gone the extra mile with everything . Helpful and respectful staff- I would recommend highly.
