Beautiful location, house appears well presented. But the cleaning lets it down. It is grubby. Some items in the kitchen drawers were so bad we put them in the garage. Our first job on arrival was to clean the toaster. This house is not suitable for six adults, 3rd bedroom has no hanging space and the single beds are short. Suitable for children. Also any adult using the 3rd bedroom will have to go thru another bedroom to get to a bathroom. The second bedroom has a TV that is very old and doesn’t work, why is it there. . There are no long mirrors anywhere or any power point near a small mirror to dry hair. Futon in second bedroom had dog hairs on it. This rental is let down by the managing agents who were less than helpful.. . The house would be perfect if managed properly . L

We loved the house and location. I would perhaps say that the bedrooms are not all suitable for adults. The third bedroom is small and does not have much furniture and very small single beds . My husband is six feet and he found his feet dangled off the end.. Also no window dressing so if you don't like light while you sleep then this is not for you. Also you have to use the facilities of another room. So I would say that although the downstairs is large and roomy I would only recommend the house for 4 adults. The glasses and crockery were just adequate. Could do with more wine glasses. My only other problem were the ants. Black work surface so they were well camouflaged. Having said all this we made the most of the location and enjoyed our stay.

The property was even better than the website suggested, incredibly spacious with everything you could require for your stay. All of the usual household facilities - dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, oven, hob etc etc. Even had a stair lift which was enjoyed by my mother-in-law!! Great situation overlooking the sea/shore with walks nearby, Hermanus a short drive away and the milkwood restaurant a short walk away. Absolutely fabulous and would recommend it to anyone.

Fantastic! A white dream house with stunning daylight inside, super beds and very nice furniture and everything in kitchen you need to make your dinners. I loved to have a sundowner on the balcony and listen to the sound of waves and just relax and unwind. Long back to Geheim again! Hopefully there is a place for outdoor braai / barbeque when I will be in Geheim next time; that was the only thing that was missing.

Geheim is situated on the sea front at Onrus and faces west so sunsets can be viewed from the balcony almost every day. This home-from-home is well maintained and comfortably furnished. The en suite master bedroom is spacious and has adequate cupboard space if You happen to spend more than a few days. The beach is a short walk away and the coastal pathway passes just in front of the property. There are a number of rock pools where it is safe to have a dip in the ocean if you prefer not to walk to the beach.

Das Haus ist ein absoluter Traum in allen seinen Eigenschaften! Die Lage ist super, vor allem der Sonnenuntergang am Abend macht viel Freude! Alle Zimmer sind sehr gut, fast scgon luxuriös ausgestattet und wir haben uns permanent wohl gefühlt. Auch der Kontakt zur Vermieterin war super - wir können dieses Haus nur weiterempfehlen!

This is a great place to stay in Hermanus, ideal for children and families. We were made to feel very welcome. Although not located in Hermanus, it is a short drive to the town centre. Loads of space and very clean. It even has a stairlift for the disabled. Could not fault it. We would definately go again.

We spent four incredible nights at Geheim. The location is prime with the ocean at your doorstep and Hermanus central just 5 minutes away. There are plenty of rock pools for the kids to enjoy just in front of the house, a sandy beach nearby as well as beach paths for walkers. Beautifully appointed spacious en-suite bedrooms with crisp linen and fluffy towels set the tone for this upmarket destination. The main bedroom opens it glass sliding doors directly onto a balcony which overlooks the ocean. Sitting in your bed you have the most extraordinary view. The second bedroom has twin single beds and the last bedroom has a double bedroom with full ensuite bathroom. Geheim is a self caterers dream! The Van der Riet family have taken time and effort to ensure all the domestic conveniences and more are at your disposal to enjoy your stay. The kitchen is beautiful and well equipped. Other spoils in the house are DSTV (satellite) and WIFI. There is a chair lift which is handy for anyone in a wheelchair. The house is suited to families with children too. For those visiting, I would highly recommend that you take a trip into the Hemel and Aarde Valley. The area is beyond beautiful and if you are a wine lover there are a number of estates located along the way. We made a special trip to Creation Wines and it was superb! We hope to be back soon!!!
