We have stayed in Hermanus several times but this was the first time we stayed in Sand Bay. The distance from Hermanus (about 6km) means you need a car or cab to get into town where the bulk of the restaurants are. They had thoughtfully booked restaurants for each night of our stay - all bookings could have been cancelled...

The team here are fantastic and every detail is considered. Even down to making dinner reservations for us, in case we did not have anything organised - which we hadn't. Overall the property is very well appointed. Breakfast is a treat with almost your own personal chef. If I had one comment and it would only be a small one,...

Wonderful place to stay. great views, very friendly staff, great breakfast and very comfortable room. Would recommend staying but for more than the one night we managed as there is so much to explore in the area. We sat on the beach with a bottle of wine and it was fantastic.

Lovely outlook over a rocky shoreline. Beautifully maintained and decorated property. Staff extremely helpful with recommendations for eating and sightseeing. Breakfast selection first rate. Only one small drawback - double bed was not very wide and short (Periwinkle Room).

This modern seafront guest house in Sandbai, Hermanus is certainly one of the best we have ever used. It is a very trendy house tastefully decorated & equipped with everything a demanding guest could require. One receives a very warm reception on arrival but formally booked in. There is parking for all guests & the bedrooms on various levels generally...

We had a lovely stay at 138 Marine Guesthouse. The attention to detail was fantastic and we were so impressed with Belinda that she had kindly made us a dinner reservation at the most fantastic restaurant, as town was very busy, and we arrived late afternoon. We saw dolphins swim past during breakfast, just off the beach. The breakfast was...

Place was emaculate. The view from the front balcony was amazing. Manager Belinda was very friendly and helpful. Booked restaurants for us both nights and showed us places to go. The breakfast was very tasty and the lady cooking was very friendly. If we are ever back would stay again.

Was very impressed on my first visit in 2014, so when I knew I'd be in the area again it was the first thing I looked into booking. The place hadn't changed at all in the two years which was quite comforting in a 'coming home' kind of way, the location is excellent and the staff were all brilliant and...

What can I say about this place. I just loved it and my only regret was that we didn't stay longer. The interior was gorgeous and immaculate and the view was equally spectacular. Breakfast was superb and the service exceptional. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone staying in the area. It's was all we had hoped for and...
