The hostess Estelle was very friendly and extremely helpful with information on what to do in and around Hermanaus, where to eat and making reservations for us. She made our stay something special. The room was elegant and comfortable, we almost did not want to leave it. The breakfasts on both mornings were delicious. We plan to be making our return to 138 Marine on a regular basis.
We visited 138 Marine as the last leg of our honeymoon. We had not informed them of this momentous occasion. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly hostess, Estelle, who advised us on things to do during our stay in Hermanus. Estelle also recommended a fantastic restaurant for supper. It was then that we mentioned that we were on honeymoon. Our room was immaculate! Every attention to detail with views of the sunsets over the ocean. When we returned later that evening we found our bed strewn with petals, some port, sweet things and quotes on the joys of marriage! We are convinced 138 cooks the best breakfasts in the world! We will definitely return here again! A great location to visit any time of the year! Indulgence!
What an awesome vacation my boyfriend and I had at 138 Marine. On arrival we were warmly greeted my the manager Estelle and throughout our trip she was an incredible hostess who offered us valuable advice and guidance of what to do and were to go while we explored Hermanus. The overall decor of the house was breathtaking and our room was beautifully decorated with an amazing view of the sea across the road, each morning when we woke up! The breakfast was something to really look forward to each morning. We also really loved the attention to detail in the service they offer their guests, it really makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. We will definitely be recommending 138 Marine to our friends and family!! Thanks Estelle for making our stay so unforgettable!!!
In my opinion, after 50 years of travel in South Africa and 17 countries around the world our experience at "138 Marine" will stay clearly in our minds as we look forward to our return. The warmth and care given us by hosts Louis and Jena was something we have never experienced before. From the moment we arrived we noticed the attention to detail and the "little things" throughout the Guesthouse.Our "Seastar" room made us realise that this stay would be out of the ordinary. To share these would be to spoil it for future visitors whom we would like to be blessed and surprised as we were.. However we must share that the view from our sea facing room, out, over the road, down to the rocks and to the sea was both beautiful and breathtaking as was the upstairs lounge and balcony…
Last minute booking as I was coming back from a trip with the white shark dives at Dyer Island with the operators from Gansbaai - "White Shark Adventures" and decided to spend the night at Hermanus The place is amazing Great location Lovely owners It's a must Not to say the views of the sunset
