We stayed here over the December holiday. Words cannot describe the absolute beauty and tranquility of this apartment. The unit is situated in a secure complex close to amenities. The view is absolute bliss and the unit is equipped with everything you might need for a relaxing stay. Highly recommended.

What an absolute gem! Our family stayed at Bayview for a week and wanted for nothing. It is neat as a pin. So tastefully decorated, has everything a family needs to cook and clean for yourselves. Of course, the view is to die for. It’s safe and secure and we literally felt like it was home away from home! The beds are super comfy and we slept like babies listening to the waves break below our window. The pool area is perfect for relaxing sundowners. Highly recommended. We will definitely be back!

How glorious to wake up to this unparalleled view of Walker Bay and go to sleep with the sound of waves crashing as your lullaby. The whales have been playing their part, breaching, lob tailing and frolicking. Spectacular cloud formations, ocean iridescent, playful seals and sea birds flying in formation, a gentle lick above the deep blue sea. All this observed from the spacious, magnificent balcony. It’s hard to drag yourself away from this beautiful, gentle space. The apartment has all the amenities - WiFi, DSTV, wall heaters, dishwashers and an induction stove for pure comfort and ease of living. The comfortable mattresses, crisp linen and electric blankets ensured a perfect winter night’s sleep, while the abundant showers left one refreshed and ready to explore. Tasteful furniture and fittings added to the overall aesthetic. Meander down to manicured lawns, colourful indigenous flowerbeds and a tempting pool. The eclectic shops and satisfying restaurants are easily accessible, as are the rewarding Cliff Paths. Highly recommended.

We stayed at this lovely apartment for a week in South African mid winter and it was totally amazing. The apartment is exactly as it looks in the pictures, with luxurious comfort and kitted out for staying indoors in winter - it is warm and cosy. Some days we stayed in the whole day - the grounds are magnificent, and others we went walking all over Hermanus - it is a walking distance to the city centre where all the restaurants, farmers market and galleries are, the Cliff Path to Grotto beach and a few minutes (less than 10minutes) drive to Fernkloof Nature Reserve. Communication with the letting agent was smooth and easy. We saw the most beautiful flora in the area. The property is right on the beach and we will come back again, whether summer or winter.

This place is simply beautiful, we could not get enough of the magnificent view! We sat and stared at the ocean for hours, while relaxing on the lovely stoep. The garden below looks like it is straight out of a magazine! The unit is neat, has everything that one might need, and more, and is located close to a lot of restaurants and shops. We loved everything about our stay, and would recommend Bayview to everyone. We were sad to leave.

What a view! You can see the breathtaking turquoise ocean from everywhere - what better way to relax than right in front of a huge window, on a comfy couch overlooking mesmerizing mountains and watching the waves crash on the rocks. Our unit had everything we needed and more. The grounds are so well looked after and there is a communal braai area overlooking the ocean as well. There is a big pool to enjoy on warm days and a beautiful bath to enjoy with a glass of wine on chilly evenings. We were sad to leave this place! Would love to stay here again.

This was not my first visit, and will certainly not be my last! I booked for only 2 nights, but ended up staying 1 extra night, as I didn't want to go home because i just loved the tranquility of the place. There have been some renovations carried out since I was there last, and the kitchen has been opened up so it's open plan with the dining room and lounge. Much better than before! And the bathroom in the second bedroom is much more modern. We spent all our time chilling on the enclosed patio, listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below. The whales disappointed us, as they didn't come to visit to say hello.

Stunning setting! There were whales in the bay every morning, who could ever get tired of that right? None of us wanted to leave. It was peaceful, yet close to all of the amenities and easy to find. When it says fully equipped they mean it; washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, the works. Considering the problems we have with water right now in Cape Town it was an absolute joy to have a powerful shower with water so soft that I didn't even need to use shampoo. Can't wait to return. Thanks Phil x

Had the pleasure of staying in this immaculate, beautiholy decorated and well equipped apartment with the most incredible views ever. Close to all amenities, not that you need to, or want to ever leave the complex. From the stunning views off the balcony (whales blowing whilst drinking our morning coffee) to the pool on the rocks. Was an absolute dream to be there.. highly recommended..
