The cottage was in great location, just a few metres from the centre of Hermanus and old harbour...

Spent (unfortunately!) only one night at this little B&B while driving down the Garden Route. Location was excellent, 3-4minutes walk from the coast (and the whales!), big, clean room with a very comfy bed. The owner was also very welcoming and helpful about the area and even but us in the bigger room for the price of the smaller one...

My husband and I started our long vacation in South Africa watching whales in Hermanus for a whole week (Nov. 2012). We loved our little cottage under the big trees. Saria and Jan were perfect hosts. After spending over 8 weeks in South Africa, it's a pleasure to announce that they served the best and hugest breakfasts in Western Cape....

Stayed here for 2 nights with a group of 5 taking up 3 rooms and had a great time. Jan and Saria are fabulous and very knowledgeable hosts who have been living in Hermanus for many many years and know the area well. The rooms are all self catering and well stocked albeit maybe a little dated, although this seems...
