Stunning cliff-side property with best views in Hermanus!
Our group of friends from all over the world spent a wonderful few days in this gorgeous property perched directly on the cliff path in Hermanus. The villa is spacious and comfortable, beautifully furnished and decorated in a contemporary style with distinctive Scandinavian flair, reflecting the roots of the owners. It was a perfect base for our large group of friends in all weather conditions: on the cool rainy day of our stay, all relaxed in the comfy lounge around the cosy wood fireplace in the lounge. On the beautiful sunny days, the pool, garden and terraces provided options for all. Highlight was a great braai in the garden on our final day -- felt just like home! But the kitchen is also ideally laid out and equipped for indoor meals and breakfast as well.
Bedrooms are well-appointed and comfortable, offering privacy and retreat to those seeking it. The location directly on the cliff path with stunning views of the town, sea and harbour, providing easy access to all, could not be better anywhere in Hermanus.
The owners are incredibly helpful: not just extremely hospitable and welcoming, but really going above and beyond the call of duty in helping out with special requests, advice and pre-arrival information -- truly among the very best hosts we have experienced anywhere in the world.
I cannot recommend this property highly enough for a family or group of friends visiting Hermanus -- it's just perfect in every way! Thanks for everything, Eva and Magnus!
Space, comfort and the most amazing position
Perched on the edge of the Hermanus cliff path with views right out over the bay and yet only a 10 to 15 minute walk into the shops and restaurants of Hermanus you will be hard pressed to find a better location. We woke the first morning to an enormous pod of dolphins chasing around the bay in front of us, a lucky break as this was not the whale season.
The Villa is very well equipped with plenty of space and a nice pool. There is a steady flow of walkers etc along the cliff path at the front but space within the courtyard for plenty of privacy.
The owners who are charming are sometimes in residence on the top storey but go out of their way not to disturb you. We only took the house with two bedrooms but the flexibility to add up to another four ensuite rooms means we hope to come back with the full family as soon as we get the chance.
Great Place spacious, Great Location on cliff path
The best location on the cliff path close to the harbour end of town. A really spacious, well appointed house with good space to relax indoors and the perfect spot to whale watch. All bedrooms were well appointed too
great house and whale watching is something else!
highly recommended for everything
not much to say. is as advertized. fantastic spot to whale watch and you can genuinely see them clearly from the kitchen table
Perfect position away from hubbub of town but overlooking the serene bay which had whales swimming
I would have liked double beds not twin beds in the front left hand bedroom but that was the only negative aspect of the entire place. Its position is perfect with direct access onto the cliff path. Its decor is beautiful and the house was well equipped with all that we needed
We are located along the famous cliff path stretching from town towards the new harbour. It will take approx 6-8 minutes to walk into town.You enter the property from Westcliff Road, just in the Goede Street junction. We offer secure parking for 5 cars inside the property. Distance to Capetown Int airport 1h30min
