The staff are extremely friendly and the reception entices one to stay at the house and forget about exploring Hermanus. Everything you could possibly need or want is provided. The views are breathtaking - lie in the swimming pool and look out over the ocean and stunning beach. This is a place to forget about your travels. Thanks for the great stay!
