      The accommodation was adequate for needs, but in certain respects disappointing and the photos were misleading. The swimming pool did not look inviting (seemed dirty and not heated). The pool gate and certain of the doors require lock replacement although we did not necessarily feel unsafe. The staircase to the top floor was very rickety /unsafe therefore not used at all. We initially struggled with the TV, Afrihost, oven, hot water, etc. It would really have made a difference to have had a proper instruction manual and some up to date pamphlets/tips as we wasted a day sorting out some...

      Thank you for letting us rent your home for Easter. Our family had a lovely time. The house lends itself to accommodate a large group, without feeling cramped.

      Excellent family accommodation. House is very spacious and secure. Very good and convenient location - close to everything; sea, shops, restaurants, walking trail. Will definitely visit again in summer to enjoy even more.

      A fantastic weekend away with friends at Lifehouse. The house was amazing and well maintained. The location is perfect as it is close to the town centre. There was honestly nothing to complain about. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a short or long stay in Hermanus.

      I wish to share that my family and I had a truly blessed and awesome time at LifeHouse. The place is truly beautiful and well taken care of. Our expectations were exceeded from the moment we walked into the house. We were received by a peaceful, cozy and warm atmosphere. We had a wonderful time and cannot complain about anything. Can't wait to make use of the facility again. I cannot stop telling my friends about it! I really feel blessed and wish the owner all the best! Thank you so much!
