Great check-in experience
100% of recent guests gave the check-in process a 5-star rating.
Light, stylish and cosy. A room to use while exploring the heart of the beautiful beach town Hermanus. Situated within 3 km of town, 7 km from the beach, and under 1 km from whale watching boats, you can also walk to the cliff paths for some of the best land- based whale watching in the world. This garden cottage provides an opportunity to enjoy bright, sunny days.

The space
A cosy room with a double bed, kitchenette and bathroom. Complimentary tea, coffee, milk and biscuits are provided.

The cottage contains one room with an open bathroom (no wall between the two). A cupboard and chairs provide
space to hang clothes and store suitcases. All linen and towels are provided.

The bathroom has a shower, toilet and basin. Soap, shampoo and toilet paper are provided.

The kitchenette includes a small fridge, microwave, kettle and basic crockery and cutlery.

There are garden chairs and a hammock outside the room. Additionally, guests are welcome to use the swimming pool and barbecue after a busy day of sightseeing.

There is Wi-Fi and a Smart TV with Netflix. A parking space right outside the cottage is reserved for guests only.

Guest access
Guests have full and exclusive use of the cottage. Guests are welcome to use the barbecue and the swimming pool which does not have a fence or a net so caution must be taken with children. Swimming towels are available on request.

Other things to note
Occasionally South Africa has load shedding. This is a period when there is no electricity or power. The apartment has a battery operated lantern for these occasions.

The water heater for the shower is small and can only afford quick but hot showers.

There is no wall between the bedroom and the bathroom, so if you are shy, this is probably not the place for you.

There is a small dog on the premises who should not bother you during your stay.

Cleaning of the room will be done for free should guests request it during the week. No cleaning service is available on the weekends.

Washing can be done for free. There is no drying service and washing will be hung on a rack near the cottage.
