Top Feriendomizil ohne wenn und aber

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten bereits zweimal das Glück , dieses Haus und seine Eigentümer erleben zu dürfen. Es gibt nichts Besseres. Wir sind von der Ausstrahlung dieses Objektes, und von der verbindlichen Freundlichkeit seiner Besitzer begeistert. Man muß es erlebt haben, und wir freuen uns auf einen weiteren Urlaub dort.

Ein fantastisches Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren schon zweimal in diesem traumhaft schönem Haus und würden es immer wieder mieten. Sehr ruhig gelegen und mit einem traumhaften Blick auf das Meer. Die Ausstattung ist sehr afrikanisch und wohnlich schön großzügig und praktisch. Der Pool und der Garten sind fantastisch. Die Eigner sind sehr nette Leute. Also alles in Allem sehr, sehr empfehlenswert.

Ein besonderes Haus mit Flair

  • 5 of 5

Ein schönes, ungewöhnliches Haus mit besten Blickachsen und naturnaher

Umgebung lädt zum unvergesslichem Urlaub ein. Wir haben es 3 Wochen

genießen dürfen. Wer eine stadtnahe Urlaubsadresse in Hermanus sucht, ist hier bestens aufgehoben. Uns hat es an nichts gefehlt. Solch ein Quartier wünschten wir uns an vielen Punkten unserer Welt. Hier wären wir auch gern dauerhaft zu Hause.

  • 5 of 5

das Haus entsprach absolut der Beschreibung,war sehr gepflegt und wir fühlten uns bestens betreut durch Nachbarn, die uns Tipps für kurze und nicht unbedingt touristische Ausflüge gaben. Das Haus selber ist liebevoll und individuell ausgestattet, der Garten ein Traum, der Blick übers Meer immer wieder eindrucksvoll. Ein zentraler Ort für Ausflüge ins Overberggebiet, Weinregion, Natureservate, Kapstadt und,und und. Der richtige Ort, um einerseits die Seele baumeln zu lassen und andererseits kurze oder auch Tagesaudflüge zu unternehmen, zu wandern oder in Hermanus zu bummeln, die Wale zu beoachten über den Markt zu schlendern und in einem der vielen Restaurants sich zu stärken.

Hermanus is a secret, away from the main tourist route, yet close of wine regions and the city of Cape Town. It is almost the only place where you can watch whales from the coast up to a few meters in the 'Winter'-months from June to November worldwide. Every year in June, the female humpback whales come from the South Pole in the Hermanus Walker Bay to calve there and great to raise their children. Then follow the male whales to mate again before they leave again in late November, the Walker Bay South Pole. In the heyday August-Sept. they can experience up to 300 whales in the bay. A 12km long cliff path (with lots of benches) along the various stretches of coastline offers always the most magnificent views of the sea.

The mountainous hinterland of Hermanus, with its fynbos nature reserve, a species-rich vegetation (8000 different. Plant species), including the many attractive proteas. Again, you are guided well-marked hiking trails to beautiful view points.

I would like to raise the real 'winter', because at this time not only the whales play out their games, but because it is also the main flowering period. It is present, the aloes stunning in as many colors. The 'Hermanus Winter' are climatically comparable with the German summer. Daytime temperatures usually rise to 25 °, but can in the evening or at night max. 8 ° (+ course) fall. This difference can be felt more a cold at night. But, then you will be happy in the evening on a pre-heated bed.

The distances of the individual courses from the house:

  5 km - Golf Course Hermanus, 27Loch, restaurant.

14 km - Arabella Golf Course, Restaurant + Hotel.

14km ​​- golf course Caledon.
