    Architecturally designed with comfort, views and easy holiday living in mind. Solar heated pool, sunny decks and balconies with sea and mountain views. Plenty of space to relax and enjoy good company. Short walk to blue flag beaches and restaurants. This home has everything needed for a relaxed seaside getaway.
  • We felt completely comfortable. The house is very large, modern, cozy and very clean! It is located in a quiet residential area just a few minutes' walk from Grotto Beach. Nothing was missing in the house and Lutz was a friendly and uncomplicated host. Everything great, highly recommended.

    Krystle2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The place surpassed our expectations. A huge house, stylish and everything you want from the bedrooms, kitchen, pool and the “ man cave” for the braai ( bbq) and drinks. And the extra special treat was the kids jungle gym and play room with table tennis and fuzz ball

    Warren2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing home for a large family vacation or long weekend away. Quick walk to best beaches and heaps of space for parents, kids and grandparents to enjoy a wonderful stay. Was a bit cold in winter, but will be really amazing in summer time.

    This 4 bedroom house with swimming-pool and Petanque (boules court), is in one of Hermanus well known suburbs, close to all the beaches (Blue flag) and ideal for groups or families. The garden is enclosed and there is a child safety pool cover. There are a fireplace, electric blankets and heaters for cold winter nights. The house has battery backup incase of power outs. It has a modern fitted kitchen with ice machine, wine fridge, purified water ect. The BBQ is undercover incase of bad weather.
    The house is on 3 levels with the living/lounge/kitchen in the middle level overlooking the pool and garden. This leads to a covered patio, with huge table and comfortable chairs. (This is great for parents sitting on the patio watching children in the swimming-pool.) It is open plan with glass doors leading to the patio and the BBQ. The BBQ is covered and can be used in bad weather. (There is wood in the garage for the BBQ). There are 4 bedrooms: The main bedroom is on the top floor with a full bathroom and lovely sea view. (Bath and shower). There are 3 bedrooms on the ground floor, 2 has glass french doors leading towards the garden and pool area. One bedroom has a queen size bed and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom downstairs has a queen bed and the third bedroom has 2 single beds. There is also a family bathroom with shower and bath on the ground floor. For the cold winter months there is an open fireplace, electric blankets and winters sheets for all the beds. There are heaters in the bedrooms downstairs and the main-en-suite bedroom has air-conditioning/heating. The garden, pool and BBQ area is well protected from the wind and can be used when windy on the beach. There are 2 outside showers.

Free wi fi and cable TV.
    There are 3 lovely beaches in the area. There is also a famous cliff path that you can walk along the coast from the beach near the house to town. This will take around 1-1 and half hour, depending on how fast you can walk. There are lovely restaurants, little shops and wine tasting farms in the area. Hermanus is know for it's whale watching during the winter months. The well known Hermanus Golf Course is also close to the house and visitors are always welcome. NB!To walk to the Grotto beach, take the first street left or right 14 or 15the Avenue) when leaving the property and walk straight down. It will bring you to Grotto beach. Depending how fast you walk, around 7 - 10 min. (I do it in 7 min every morning and evening). By car is around 2 - 3 min. Once on the beach walk away from the lagoon towards Hermanus and you will come to my favourite Restaurant on the beach, Dutchies. Great for watching sunsets or just a morning breakfast on the beach. They open at 9:00. (the sunset beach terrace is closed from after Easter in April to November, but the restaurant area is open.) I will email a link to Hermanus with recommendations and directions once the booking is confirmed.
  • Amazing house with great amenities and spaces

    Tyron2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • An outstanding property, very comfortable and great for sitting out. Very good supermarket in Hermanus which is a ten minute drive away. Lots of bird activity in the garden which kept my wife entertained for hours. Lovely beach to visit. We were there for four nights and found the house very well equipped, the photos are spot on. I must mention a local restaurant which is on the beach which have spectacular views of the sunset. It’s called Dutchies and the food and drink they serve is excellent especially the fish. As I say we were there four nights and we were there three times. Very good service and value. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the restaurant from the property. Hermanus is worth a visit especially having a walk along the coastal path. Very safe to walk along as there are security officers all along the path.

    Michael2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home in Hermanus and true to pictures! Was a great experience for my family and I! Would highly recommend!

    Ronny2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Rina's place was perfect for our family weekend away. The kitchen has all the amenities one could require and the place was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and well laid out. We enjoyed several braais and the view from the top bedroom is fantastic. Unfortunately it was very rainy over the weekend, so the games and puzzles were really useful!

    Number 188 on Second has the best of both worlds: Mountain and Nature Reserve with spectacular views of the Bay. Our spacious, beautifully recently refurbished family holiday home is situated in a safe, quiet area and a short drive to the beach.
    The villa backs onto the Fernkloof Nature Reserve with access to nature trails or gentle walks right from the back garden. It accommodates up to 8 adults and 2 children comfortably, and is perfect for family gatherings and celebrations, although smaller groups of up to four have enjoyed themselves just as much!
    The villa is ideally situated to explore the area - whether it be a day at Grotto beach, shark-cage diving in nearby Gansbaai, a sunset cruise from the New Habour, sea-kayaking, wine-tasting, whale-watching in July to December, or a delicious fish feast at a nearby restaurant.
  • I stayed here with my husband and 11 month old son and we Loved it! It is the most beautiful airbnb we've ever been to! Every detail, every corner is so lovely. The dishes, the curtains, the pictures each thing is really outstanding. We felt very comfortable and actually ended up spending most of our time in Hermanus in the house because we felt so comfortable there. You have so much space, all the equipment is top notch, the bed was comfortable and youll find everything that you need. The view from the garden is beautiful overlooking the mountains (You do have to be careful and look out for the baboon monkeys as they live in the mountains and enter the garden from time to time but as long as you are watchful this shouldn't be a problem). The house is perfect for a big family or group as it's so spacious but it was also really nice for the 3 of us. Communication was very easy also. We highly recommend this house and would love to be back one day.

    Ben2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • A fabulous house for large groups. More than enough space for the 10 of us. Very well equipped and well maintained. The upstairs pool room was a great hit with kids/teens. Great location for walks in the mountain. Down the road from Grotto beach.

    Natalie2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house is amazing, so much space and well equipped with everything you need, from kitchen to lounge, bedrooms and games room. The garden and pool are also gorgeous, lovely and sunny all day, with plenty of comfy cushioned seating options. House is well located for the beach and easy to reach centre of Hermanus and the fabulous Hemel en Aarde wine route. We were two young families staying and it was perfect for us, we hope to stay again some day.

    Mabel2017-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely fantastic long weekend there! It is an amazing house for a vacation and we will be back - perhaps with a bigger bunch of friends next time!

  • Great place and everything just works. We didn't realize that this location was actually a working B&B when it wasn't being let out on Airbnb. But that meant that the multiple bedrooms all had privacy and separation - great for us, who had several friends pass through over the Christmas holidays. Pizza oven was a hit with the kids. Pool just worked. And the assistants who visited to look after the place were friendly, unobtrusive and very helpful. Thanks for a great stay!

    Our place is close to the charming town centre (7 min walk), parks, restaurants and bars. The beaches and beach bars are a 10 min drive. We have great mountain views. Our place is good for couples, business travellers, families (with kids), and big groups.
    We have a great outdoor space with a rock pool and waterfalls. We have two indoor fire places. The one is for barbecues and the other a combustion fire place. The outdoor fire pit is weather dependent next to the pool. We have two options for alfresco dining. A big dining area by the indoor fire/barbecue place if the weather is playing up.
    We are located in one of the oldest and safest neighborhoods in Hermanus. Close to the mountain and walking trails. We enjoy walking to town in busy times to avoid the parking problem.
  • Big, nice house, that something is getting old. The absolute highlight is the great outdoor area with pool and covered lounge.

    Decorated in a relaxed nautical style, Waterways is a charming family holiday home set on a 30-acre protea farm of natural fynbos. Nestled between the majestic mountain and the picturesque Klein River lagoon, it's a private paradise that you'll never want to leave. But located between Hermanus and Stanford, it's perfectly positioned to go out and explore all the restaurants, cafes, markets, wine farms, beaches, coastal paths, mountain hikes and scenic surroundings.
    Descend the winding driveway through 30 acres of Fynbos to arrive at green lawns running down to a moody lagoon. Waterways stands proudly in front of a formidable mountain backdrop. It's a setting that has to be seen to be believed... a private paradise you'll never want to leave. Waterways has been built as a holiday home with most of the bedrooms either in separate cottages or with separate entrances, so guests can have plenty of privacy from each other. Adults can enjoy the large swimming pool on the front lawn, while little ones can play in the fountain in the enclosed back garden. There are also several entertainment areas for both summer and winter to experience the tranquil and scenic surroundings at their best.
    With the lagoon on your front doorstep and the mountain in your backyard, Waterways is an adventure-seeker's playground. Further afield, you can choose from adrenalin sports such as kite-surfing and paragliding to more relaxing past-times such as birdwatching and winetasting. During the spring months, Hermanus is one of the best spots in the world for whale-watching and Gaansbaai, a 30-minute drive, is the premier location in the Cape for shark-cage diving.
  • Spacious, comfortable and exquisitely located. The house has a surprising degree of history too.

    Si2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

  • Leigh’s house is an amazing place to stay. Every room is so stylish and comfortable- the beds are perfect for a great nights sleep. The garden and pool area is a great place to relax. The location is perfect- just a short walk into Hermanus and Steven and Annie who look after the house each day made sure we had everything we needed. Just wanted to stay longer.

    Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa

    Literally surrounded by 12km pristine beach, a magical nature reserve and a fynbos-filled mountain on the edge of Hawston - a traditional "coloured" fishing village 10 km from Hermanus - our celebrated sea side home nestles in a succulent-filled oasis like space overlooking the Indian Ocean.
    Our house, which has featured in several local and overseas design magazines, is an unusual modern villa set in a small indigenous and vegetable garden two minutes walk away from one of the most private beaches in the western Cape, the 12km long Hawston to Kleinmond beach. The house has several unusual living, sleeping and relaxing areas which are semi autonomous from each other making individual/couple privacy possible even within a big group. The upper floor, which sleeps two, and has its own kitchen and bathroom, is completely independent and self sufficient, with magnificent views of the sea and mountain and an outside verandah area with an extra day bed for those who like sleeping outdoors. It can be hired on its own by a couple, two adults or a family with a child/children under two years. Ask for a special rate. It can only be accessed through the main house and we will not necessarily vacate the house if only the upper floor is required at a special rate. Downstairs the main house consists of a general living area with a large kitchen, a toilet and shower and a sitting room with a sunken pit where at least two extra people can sleep if need be. The pit will need be used as a sleeping place for 2 if there are 8 people, unless people are happy sleeping outside on the day beds. There is an outside verandah area leading into the garden with a central fireplace on the ground surrounded by space for at least 8 people to enjoy a barbecue or a night round the fire under the stars. . The two downstairs bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom, are accessed via the verandah and have their own chill yard with an outside day bed under partially covering. Cosmos Makasva, who is full-time at the house and can be a help with all manner of things, lives with his family in a separate renovated garage area adjoining the chill yard space. Although not yet off the grid, it is an eco friendly house and we grow a lot of our own greens. The outside of the house is clad with hundreds of abalone shells. Abalone, crayfish and fish are the main source of livelihood for the Hawston community and can, if possible, be sourced on request. The house is known to everyone in Hawston not least because the local public 50m pool is right opposite us and is open to the public between November and April each year. It is literally a 2 minute walk across the beach/pool parking to the magnificent Hawston beach. Another 2 minute walk and you are in the middle of an ancient 1500 year old milkwood forest which weaves round a fresh water lake. And another 5 minute walk takes you straight into a private nature reserve which stretches 8km to Vermont along the rocky sea side. In addition to having all modern conveniences, we have a variety of outdoor gear like kayaks, fishing rods, scuba diving gear etc which could, on agreeable terms, be used at your own risk. Between Cosmos and ourselves we can provide you with a wealth of info and advice on the area and act as guides if required and if possible. The vibe is relaxed, welcoming and positive both in the house and in our relation to the environment and the community. We offer a unique SA experience, given the tortured racial history of our country, in that we are a white couple living in the same space with a black family in a predominantly "coloured" area.
    Hawston is a unique community in the South African context. Its "coloured" residents, who are mainly directly descended from the original indigenous Khoi and San people of South Africa, have historically survived off the sea though these days this is possible only for some. The community is a microcosm of the class inequalities which SA is famous for with extremely poor and rich people living side by side. Although Hawston itself does not have much in terms of entertainment, shopping and restaurants, it has famous golf courses, award winning restaurants, magnificent wine farms, wild horses, wetlands, cool shops, whale and shark watching and every manner of natural outdoor activity within a 15km radius. Its an ideal and relaxed place to base oneself for a few days while exploring these jewels in the environment.
  • Its one of those house you immediately fall in love with. Its absolutely adorable and unique. We had a warm and delight welcome by Stella & Cosmos and the dogs. From the first second you can feel the good energy and the good times people have in this house. The interior is absolutely gorgeous and especially the upper floor is a breathtaking and magazine-like Wow feeling. The house is perfectly equipped with everything you need and has a second fully equipped kitchen on the upper floor which makes it perfect to stay there for bit in the morning before going downstairs. Its a 3 minutes walk to one of the prettiest beached we have ever been to - perfect for a cold morning wake up dip. We used the fire place every night and we felt like being in our own personal little holiday hide away - not another airbnb, its a home - a lovely and special one. Highly recommended !!!

  • We enjoyed a wonderful stay in a beautiful and stylish house and great hospitality! This place is made for active, animal loving and curious individualists who love to explore the Overberg region off the beaten tracks! Thank you Dirk, Cosmos and family, an unforgettable stay!!!

  • This enchanting modern villa nestled in the Hawkins township is not just another Air BnB house, it’s an experience, both personal and spiritual. Upon our arrival we were welcomed by the most warm and gentle Zimbabwean man named Cosmos who cares for the property and is utterly delightful, friendly and helpful beyond what’s necessary. You’ll also receive a hearty welcome from the animals which were delightful and obedient, the large male cat being a rather feisty feline character. Everything in this house, from the architecture and design to the glory of the garden, reflects the most sincere striving for beauty and inner peace on this human journey; a soul- searching deep dive into the meaning of life through the power of art, design, food, travel, photography, philosophy and the healing power of plants. The true love for these gifts of life is reflected in the extensive book collection adorning the walls along with thought provoking artworks and small shrines here and there should you wish to delve into a deep meditation or simply sit in mindfulness. Great slabs of repurposed wood creates larger-than-life wardrobes, drawers, beds and kitchen counters that fit into concrete designs that support the structures. The design is a salutation to the earth, and you feel deeply grounded and at peace in this home. The upstairs bedroom is unit all of its own, like an artist’s studio overlooking the ocean view, complete with a mystical mountain range that leaves one aghast should Africa bestow one of her breathtaking sunsets. Moments from the house is a pristine white sandy beach that stretches out into a horizon fit for long pensive walks. Wild and untamed, it is an experience both mystical and magical regardless of the weather. Here you’ll find more than a simple holiday, you’ll embark on a journey. One that leaves you refreshed and at peace, but still desperately longing for more.

  • The house is very large and rustic. And I really enjoyed it. The upper loft with a large balcony is particularly beautiful. You could watch and enjoy every sunset from there. The beach is only a few meters away and miles long. We felt very comfortable and in good hands and used the amenities like the fireplace several times. We also really enjoyed the fact that there are animals on the premises. We really enjoyed the two cats and dogs. The contact with Stella and Cosmos was great. They stood by and with advice and action. Her two children were absolutely cute. We would love to come back anytime.

  • Home away from home. Stylish. Unique. Super comfortable. Cosmas was amazing. Loved the beach and fynbos walks with the dogs. Fell in love with them. Will never forget this trip.

  • Fantastic house with a lot of space and plenty of bedrooms. Two cooking places and also the barbecue area outside. Also nice hangouts upstairs and downstairs. The house has a lovely architecture and nice indoor design. Well equipped with kitchenware, towels, sheets and washing machine. Also a lot of cooking spices, when cooking yourself. 5 minutes car drive to big shopping mall. We really loved the dogs and cats living at the house. Also the housekeeper Cosmos is really guest friendly and service minded. Our family had a wonderful stay for two weeks and we highly recommend this house. Jonas, Sanne, Jakob, Isak and Svante

  • The accommodation of Dirk is exceptional. Styled into detail and with everything your heart desires. The kitchen is fully equipped and invites you to cook together. In addition, the quasi private beach (12km) just across the street. For all whale fans: in Hermanus, 10 minutes away, we were able to observe at least 10 whales up close daily. We would like to come back anytime. Would not it be so far away ...

We highly recommend Jenny's for that special holiday and look forward to returning in the future.
