About House on Westcliff

In a tranquil, indigenous garden close to the ocean, cliff path and whales lies House on Westcliff. Each charming bedroom has its own garden entrance, heated towel rail, fridge, tea and coffee facilities, and a shared satellite TV. We also offer secure parking on our premises as well as credit card facilities.

Enjoy the beautiful garden beside the solar heated pool. Relax in the cosy lounge under thatch and enjoy our original African art, good music, and books which will introduce you to the area and its nature, while farm fresh breakfasts are served in the dining room overlooking the garden.

We are located just a few minutes' walk to the harbour for boating, cruising, and dining, or you may choose to go to the centre of town for museums, galleries, and the many shops and restaurants. A few minutes' drive will take you to the beautiful beaches of Hermanus, and shark cage diving and boat based whale watching are organised from House on Westcliff on a daily basis in season.

We were welcomed with a warm reception. The rooms are nicely built for a guest house, not converted rooms in a house. Would stay there again when I'm in the area.

My family and I had an enjoyable stay at House on Westcliff guest house.

We (two couples) stayed only one night, but the hostel was well placed to get to the sea (just 100m) and to the harbour where we ate in a very good restaurant recommended by our hosts. Some rooms are filed in a separate "garden house" (when you step out you are right in a small garden) and are well equipped. The bathroom could be nicer, but everything was clean and in good condition. Unfortunately we couldn't take advantage of the nice garden and pool as the weather was too cold and windy 2nd week of November.
