My wife and I stayed with Stefan and Nikki for two nights. Their guest house is located just outside the centre of town, just a minute’s walk from the cliff walkway, and ten minutes walk to some great restaurants.

Our room was clean, fresh and spacious. Stefan greeted us as if we were friends, had pre booked us a dinner reservation, where the food was great. He is sooooo passionate about Hermanus and generally everything in South Africa. He really made some great suggestions that led to us having a great holiday. Thank you.

Almost forgot, We had two great breakfasts too, where there were options beyond the standard cooked breakfast options. The French toast was amazing!

Thanks for a great stay.

Great location within walking distance of both the marina (where whale watching boats depart), and the town where the restaurants are. 50m from the coastline where we also saw whales! Hosts are very warm and friendly.

We only stayed in this guesthouse for one night, but wished it was for longer. The owners Stefan and Nikki were very welcoming, and even brought breakfast forward with our whale watching trip early the next morning. The location is perfect near to the ocean walk, and a short walk into town. The breakfast Stefan cooked for us was also superb and probably the best on our trip

Our room had a very modern interior and was perfectly clean. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They gave us some good tips for the surrounding area.

The highlight was the amazing breakfast. You can see that he is a very experienced cook.

We found the accomodation excellent and the advice given by the owners very helpful. The breakfasts were exceptional. It was obvious that the owner was a highly experienced cook. We heard from him that he had trained in the UK
