LUXURIOUS, MODERN GARDEN APARTMENT DIRECTLY ON SEA, 4 PERSONS, 177M2

Hermanus Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 toilets, pool, terrace, garden, great sea view

The luxurious, spacious garden-apartment (177 m2) is flooded with light and offers a stunning sea-view. The 25m2 terrace leads directly into the garden and to the pool. If you are lucky, you can even watch whales from the master-bedroom during the season or just let the look wander through the garden over Walker Bay! The equipment leaves little to be desired: Miele appliances, Nespresso coffee machine, Harman-Kardon sound system (for CD iPod/iPhone), travertine or white-washed wooden floorings (bedrooms), paintings from young South African artist Lionel Smit.... Everything one might expect is here. Complex and lovingly furnished with an eye for detail, modern with African elements. The kitchen offers all utensils for cooking enthusiasts and has direct access to a small patio with gas braai. A/C, underfloor heating, free WiFi-access. Additional garden furniture: 4 chairs, 1 table. (Price discount for 2 person booking, special conditions for long-term rentals)

Whale watching: Every year, between August and November, there is a great reunion in the sea by the village of Hermanus: hundreds of humpback whales from the Antarctic make their way towards Walker Bay, where they mate and give birth to their calves. The huge mother whales often allow themselves to drift with their calves within metres of the shore – almost close enough to touch, it would seem. Further out, the young whales dive and jump. Encountering these enormous and peaceful animals makes a lasting impression on every visitor. The UNESCO has confirmed Walker Bay as being one of the best whale observatory points in the world. Hermanus is proud of its sea dwellers, and celebrates an annual ‘Hermanus Whale Festival’ every September.

What is there to see in and around Hermanus?: Hermanus is encompassed by the Atlantic Ocean on one side, and unspoiled hill country on the other. Fernkloof Nature Reserve boasts various trails for walkers and hikers, which in turn offer breath-taking views of the coast and sea. The unique fynbos vegetation, including protea and numerous other indigenous plants, is a true feast for the eyes. Directly in front of ‘74 On Marine’, the “Cliff Path” coastal trail (grade: easy) meanders along the coast, passing picturesque bays and leading up to the seemingly endless sand dunes of Voëlklip (Blue Flag prize winner) at one end; at the other end, the trail leads into New Harbour. Hermanus boasts a comprehensive infrastructure with a wide variety of shops and restaurants to fit all purses. (www.fernkloof.com)

Excursions: Take a trip to the beautiful vineyards in the nearby and delightful Hemel-en-Arde-Valley, where you can indulge in a spot of wine-tasting or enjoy a meal out. Stellenbosch, Sommerset-West and Paarl – renowned for their wine and culture – are just one hour’s drive away. Another unforgettable experience is the drive to Franschhoek via Villiersdorp and the Franschhoek pass. Cape Town itself is just an hour and a half away – or two hours if you choose to take the scenic coastal route past Kleinmond and Betty's Bay.

ONE OF THE BEST PLACES WE'VE EVER STAYED

One of the best places we've ever stayed
  • 5 of 5
Firstly, very efficient booking with the owner. This place was every bit as good as the photos. Immaculate condition, good high quality appliances. Very spacious and modern. Good service from hotel next door - it was great to use their pool and watch the whales in the bay. Hermanus full of reasonably priced restaurants. Don't think we ate in the same place twice. Can't recommend this place highly enough. Hope to return in 2015.

FIRST CLASS APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for three weeks in February and the apartment is in an excellent location on the seafront and less than five minutes walk to restaurants and shops. The furnishings and fittings in the apartment are first class and the kitchen area is very well equipped. Everything was perfect and we had a great holiday.

5 STAR ALL THE WAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a 5* Apartment in a 5* location, look no further!! This is the perfect holiday home. Designed and furnished to impecable standards. We had a fantastic time. This apartment is special, from the prestigious works of art on the walls, to the quality of appliances and furnishings throughout. The beds are very comfortable and excellent quality, for us always a must have. Everything met our exacting standards and more. The pictures do not really do the apartment or the location the justice it deserves. Furthermore, to make it all complete, the service, communications and hospitable appraoch the owner provided was excellent. Our vacation in Hermanus was simply wonderful. It pays to research well. Once in a while during lifes experiences, we fall upon a little jem, this apartment is just one of those. Looking forward to our next visit.

ABSOLUT EMPFEHLENSWERT!

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in Hermanus sehr genossen. Das Apprtement ist ideal gelegen, nahe an den Restaurants und dem Küstenwanderweg, aber dennoch absolut ruhig. Der Ausblick über die von einer alten Pinie wunderbar beschatteten Terrasse zum Meer ist wunderbar.

Das Appartment ist großzügig ausgestattet. Man findet alle Utensilien zum Kochen oder Grillen - falls man das trotz der vielen hervorragenden Restaurants der Umgebung selbst übernehmen möchte.
Wir habe von dem Besitzer auch ausgezeichnete Tipps für Restaurants und Weingüter erhalten. Herausragend war Creation Wines im Hemel en Aarde Valley - ausgezeichechnete Wine und Tasting mit Food-Wine-Paring.

Der Check-In wird über das benachbarte Hotel erledigt und man kann auch die Einrichtungen der Hotelanlage samt schönem Pool nutzen.

Von der Buchung bis zum Check-Out alles Perfekt!

DREAM AT HERMANUS

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful time at Hermanus October/November 2010 during the whale watching period. One of the highlights of this location is the view over the bay – what a breathtaking moment when you wake up and see a fluke out of your bed….

Hermanus is a peaceful and lively place and the apartment is close to the sea and to the charming center of Hermanus with a variety of restaurants (seafood, italian, african) and art galleries and cosy shops is in walking distance.

The description and the pictures of this wonderful apartment meet reality best and exceeded our expectations!
Besides the prime location with a marvellous view, this large and bright apartment is set up with love to the detail, from aesthetes for aesthetes!
In addition to a complete and well-chosen furniture and equipment (washing machine and tumbler makes one travel with small baggage) there are three room high pictures of Lionel Smit, a native artist – impressive!
Feeling at home in wonderful rooms, relaxing and SAFE.

Hermanus was our starting point for trips to beautiful places like Cape Town, Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, Paarl etc.

Right now, we are planning to come back next year to experience a different season at this beautiful and luxurious place.

PERFEKT!

  • 5 of 5
Das ist wirklich eine der schönsten Ferienwohnungen in Südafrika, die ich bisher erleben durfte. Was eine Sicht....Wir hatten drei entspannte Wochen in Hermanus und Umgebung. Die Lage der Wohnung könnte besser nicht sein, direkt in der ersten Reihe am Meer, eine schöne alte Zeder spendet am Mittag Schatten, es ist ruhig, aber trotzdem nur ein paar Minuten zu Fuß zu den netten Restaurants und Cafes im Dorf. Die Wohnung ist wirklich groß und hell, geschmackvoll und hochwertig eingerichtete, es fehlt an nichts, absolut europäischer Standard - es gibt sogar eine Nespresso-Kaffeemaschine. Zudem hängen unglaubliche Gemälde eines südafrikanischen Malers in den Räumen. Und nicht ganz unwichtig: es ist sicher! Ein Hausmeister kümmert sich den ganzen Tag um das Grundstück. ZA von seiner schönsten Seite. Wir kommen garantiert wieder. Besten Dank!

Your 'home away from home' is very quiet, in a peaceful atmosphere and safe environment. From Monday to Friday, complex maintenance for the 9 apartments is present. In the undercover parking you'll find the parking bay for your car. The apartment is serviced by the neighboring Hotel - you are welcome to use their pool, terrace, garden-bar and SPA as well. The staff will gladly assist you 24/7. Many unspoiled beaches in and around Hermanus (Blue Flag 'Grotto Beach' i.a.)

Just 25 km away lies the renowned Arabella Golf Course – one of the best in South Africa, with picturesque and overwhelming views over the Bot River Lagoon.
