2-6 Bedroom Villa With Pool Just By The Ocean

We will be happy to host you and your friends at our newly renovated ground floor of ocean front villa in Hermanus. It was originally built in 1924 and we have tried to keep the old charm. We have an uninterrupted view of the Walker Bay which is world famous for its whale watching .The view was voted by London Times (24Dec2011) to no. 10 best hotel view in the world. We can easily accommodate up to 12 guest in our 6 en-suite double rooms and have good space for socializing with a state of the art kitchen facing the sea. However, to accommodate smaller groups, you can rent the Villa with only two bedrooms. When swimming in our elevated saltwater pool and the Villa has direct access to the famous cliff path.

Great and very spacious villa on perfect location

  • 5 of 5

19onWestcliff is an amazing villa. It is very spacious and it has everything you need. From large living area, great dining place to perfect pool and sitting area outside. It is very near hermanus and you can just use the Cliffpath which is a nice walk to the city center.

We stayed with 4 people in the main house. But if you come with more there are several extra bedrooms in the complex which can be rented (looked very new with seperate bathroom etc..)

Overall a great experience staying at the villa. Defenitly recommend it for a stay at Hermanus.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5


- Beautiful house with lots of space.

- We saw dolphins and whales breaching ... From the dining room table!

- Host is very considerate and responsive.


- Layout is a little awkward; you have to go outside (even if its raining) to access 4 of the rooms. Also, access is denied to the gorgeous second floor patio, which could have been a major plus.

- Internet was out during our stay, but the host reimbursed us for related data charges.

What a place, what a view !!!

  • 5 of 5

This property has overwhelming, more than 180° degree panorama views over Hermanus , the mountains and the ocean. It is located directly at the ocean front, in season you can watch the wales from your window ! It has direct access to the famous beach walk. Restaurants and town center are in walking distance. Safe residential area.

The house is very spacious, even when 12 people stay there. Big open kitchen area, ideal for bigger parties. Very tasteful modern interior with all amenities you could ask for. There is a large pool with a wind and sun protected patio for al fresco meals. The main house has 2 bedrooms, 4 more bedrooms are in a ground floor annex. Each room has en-suite bathroom. Secure parking within the property.

The hosts are very friendly and open to your personal concerns. This place guarantees for an unforgettable stay even for the most discerning traveler. We certainly will come back !!!!!
