About Hermanus Esplanade

The Greek Isle atmosphere and décor compliments the vacation ambience and the furnishings. You can sit back, slow down and enjoy the beautiful view.

We have 22 self-catering apartments consisting of two, four and six sleepers all facing Walker Bay and providing affordable family accommodation. The apartments range from duplex to free-standing, sea-facing or courtyard units, including an authentic fisherman’s cottage. Each apartment is fully equipped and has its own private braai, secure parking and a games room to keep the kids busy.

All apartments are within easy ambling distance of the village centre amenities and a short drive from our lovely beaches. The charming and sophisticated village offers excellent restaurants, shopping opportunities and amenities for all moods and tastes. Hermanus is a unique, historic fishing village in the Overberg region of the Western Cape where you can deeply inhale the champagne air straight off the sea. Experience the enthralling and magical world of whale watching virtually at your feet or from your seafront apartment during the months of May to December.

Beach: The property is across the road from the ocean.

Positiv ist der Blick aufs Meer: einzigartig!Sehr negativ fanden wir den Zustand der Wohnung: Schimmel, eher feucht, bei Regen tropfte es von der Decke, die Fensterscheiben hatten Löcher, die Terrassentür einen 6cm breiten Spalt, durch den der kalte Wind reinzog.An heißen Sommertagen ist das ok, aber bei uns im September war es ohne Heizung zu kühl.

Reception offered to phone us the next day with a view to swopping for a ground floor room. This never happened.We arrived on the Saturday and that night some other residents shouted and sang until...
