Welcome to Braeview Guesthouse in the picturesque town of Hermanus also known as the Heart of the Whale Route. Braeview is situated in a tranquil, scenic environment from where one can hear the whales breathing in the evenings and early mornings. Braeview is owner managed and only 150 metres from the famous cliff path where the whales can be seen from close range. A short stroll away from the village and restaurants this elegant guesthouse offers the peace and quiet one needs to plan for the next day’s exciting events and excursions.

From June to December our coastline is visited by hundreds of Southern Right whales and during this period you will be entertained by these wonderful giants of the sea when they nurse and play with their offspring just 20 metres away.

Lovely, clean and neat cottage.we stayed at stone cottage for 2 days on a birthday break. The only thing the cottage lacked was a personal touch, like a welcome note or small jug of milk in the fridge.

Erina was a fantastic host and made us feel welcome and provided excellent advice on eating out! Our rooms were very tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. Ditto bathroom and toilet. The kitchen was fully equipped with good utensils that we didn't use but would have has we spent longer. The lounge spacious and comfortable. The location was perfect for cliff walking and street exceptionally quiet. Highly recommended and excellent value for money, and would return.

Our hosts, Erina and Stefan de Jager, were more than helpful in suggesting and reserving restaurants and our whale watching trip. Hermanus really is THE place to spot whales, and even though you might very well be able to see them from the shore, a boat trip will bring you much closer and you will have a much more intimate experience. Our room was nicely furnished and had all that we needed for our self-catering breakfasts.

We spent a night in the stone cottage at Braeview and the place was immaculate. You can just see by looking at the place overall that the owners take great care in providing great accommodation at an affordable price. The location is also very good. Going back for the whale season!
