Eva and Magnus were very welcoming. We appreciated the wine and road map they gave us. A couple of things to consider though. 1. We believed we had rented the entire house, but got charged an extra 1500 rand for the third couple who stayed with us for one night. Maybe that devil was in the fine print, but it didn't help that they didn't even have hot water. 2. I wouldn't suggest staying here when the owners are upstairs. They are personable but you hear every foot step and it made us feel we couldn't play music. 3. A minor point, there's a lot of tableware, but the kitchen was not very well stocked with actual cooking items. No baking pans etc. Good location, nice house, friendly hosts.

This is a beautiful house in the perfect position - just a ten minute walk along the coastal path to Hermanus town centre with not a single road to cross!! The house itself is spacious and clean with everything you could wish for. The view out to Walker Bay is amazing and the pool is a great bonus for the hot days! Although we did not meet Eva, we were handed the keys by the caretaker Chuck who was helpful and friendly. Although we were only a group of four this is a fantastic house for a large group of friends to stay in with six beautifully and tastefully decorated double bedrooms, all with en-suite. We would recommend this house without hesitation and would love to return for longer than our two nights!! Thank you for a short but sweet stay.

What a beautiful holiday home. I wished I knew the rooms around the pool area where completely separate from the main house. Each has it's own entrance and bathroom en suite. I could have invited more guests to stay without having our little ones drive them crazy! Great home for the family and extended guests. Highly recommended.

This is a fantastic house for larger groups. A great location right next to the cliff path which gives amazing views from the house and as you take a short walk into Hermanus. A nice large kitchen fitted with the basic cooking utensils. There are lots of plates and glasses but if you are planning on dinners we would advise on bringing anything you would need to prepare it. This is the main floor of the house as the owners live upstairs.

We are a Swedish couple who lived in South Africa since 1994
Here in Hermanus we have found our dream holiday villa which we would like to share with you. We have lived and worked in many countries but most of our years have been spent in Asia and Africa
In spite of all the travel the Villa has a very Scandinavian beach house feel with white washed wooden floors all through.
Hermanus filled our hearts from the first day,the unique Cliff Path for the morning run, the mountains with the Fernkloof hiking trails,the 20km long beach or just sit at the diningtable and watch whales or dolphins play in front of you.
