Our home is 2 blocks from the lagoon and walking distance from the Blue Flag swimming beach - Grotto beach. There are two bedrooms with double beds, a room with 4 bunk-beds, a 4th room with 2 beds, 2 Bathrooms
In winter, our house is very cozy and warm once you switch the large gas heater on.
From the veranda at the back you have a lovely view of the mountains.
We have a hot outside shower and the Weber is in the room adjoining the veranda. There is a DVD. The DSTV requires your own card
Hermanus in general, and our house specifically, is a pretty nice place to relax and hang out. We bought it 10+ years ago, furnished it for ourselves and enjoyed it for many years.
Our children are now older and we decided to put it on Airbnb actively this year. This means - lots of books, 3 mountain bikes (but tires may be flat), and the feel of a personal home

Otros aspectos destacables
- Walk to Hermanus centre along the Cliff path. We usually drive to either Grotto or Voelklip beach and walk from there to have breakfast at the Burgundy restaurant in the centre. This takes 1-1.5 hours. Try to plan for a car to return you from there, else it will be a loooong walk back!
- You will find excellent bread (and a pretty good breakfast/lunch) at the Daily Bread on the corner of 10th ave & 7th street
- Duchies on Grotto is informal and on many Friday nights have great jazz - but (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to confirm
- there are great side-trips to the Hemel and Aarde (Heaven and Earth) Vally's restaurants/wine farms, Stanford (Birkenhead craft beer and more restaurants), Arniston and even Cape Agulhas, if you want to tick visiting the most southern point in Africa off your Bucket-list.
- If you have the stamina, head straight down to the beach (1/2 block left of our house next to Baleens, then turn left and walk for 20 kilometers on the beach to Stanford)
- a GREAT way to experience sunset is to drive to the top of the range of the mountains overlooking Hermanus (the road is paved, and found at the entrance to Hermanus, coming from the Cape Town direction). Take a jacket/jersey/sweater!
