About Pelagus House

Pelagus House offers superior accommodation in Hermanus, just for you. We are situated in a picturesque little town, which is world-renowned for its beauty, whales and champagne air.

Pelagus House is within walking distance of quaint village shops, restaurants and it is just a stroll from the cliff top for the best views of the dolphins and whales. A spectacular view of the ocean and the sound of waves greet you on arrival at Pelagus House. You will awake to the smell of a fresh sea breeze and seaside sounds every morning. Relax on the patio and enjoy the vista of Walker Bay whenever it pleases you.

Relax with a good book and a sea view in our library or in the lounge in front of our cosy fireplace. Enjoy an invigorating dip in our own swimming pool, where you can suntan in complete privacy. Walk along the cliff path to the harbour and return to the peace of Pelagus House to sip a fine Cape wine. Pelagus House offers accommodation in seven rooms. Each room has DStv, a minibar, coffee and tea-making facilities, a hairdryer and a mini safe. There are also those little extras that make the difference, such as complimentary port and sherry, chocolates in each room, heaters in each bathroom and a connection for electric shavers.

The Penthouse has two en-suite bedrooms with a private lounge and a large verandah which is set back on the property. Secure parking is provided. Credit cards are accepted and children over the age of 15 years are welcome.

We had a great time at Pelagus House the girls made us most welcome. Our room was excellent and the breakfast was first class. We only stayed 2 nights onour way from Kynsna to Cape Town but wished we could have stayed longer. Would recommend this to all our friends.
