A wonderful welcome, first class service and well appointed, tastefully furnished rooms. The staff were all friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Delicious breakfast. Right on the waterfront with stunning views . I loved hearing the sound of the sea throughout the night and waking to hear the sound of birds. A home away from home.

We read some of the reviews before coming here and it said they were hospitable, and so we assumed the basic hospitable behaviors. Never assume.

A lovely welcoming guest house with great views over the sea. Rosemary was a very attentive and helpful hostess, and gave us good tips for a delightful meal and coastal walk in Hermanus. We only wished we had stayed more than one night!

Stayed here in March 2013 on the way from Plett to Cape Town only for a night with our little daughter who is 1,5 years old. Very nice, luxury guest house with spacious and clean rooms and nice ensuite bathroom. Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast.

I've stayed with Louis and Jena twice and will certainly book there again! The rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable and the breakfast out of this world.
