About Whale Away Guest House

Whale Away is a luxurious modern guest house situated in the heart of the world-famous whale watching haven of Hermanus. The house lies nestled at the foot of the scenic Overberg Mountain Range and offers spectacular ocean views, where whales can be spotted right from the verandah.

This home away from home is situated just five minutes' walk from art galleries, restaurants, and many town activities, making Whale Away the perfect place to stay for your holiday by the sea. The cliff path along the ocean front follows a scenic route with Cape fynbos and lookout posts where you can watch the whales in the bay.

For sporting enthusiasts, Hermanus offers plenty of holiday action such as shark cage diving, quad biking and for the golfers, the Hermanus Golf Course is ideally situated just 500 m walking distance from the guest house. There's plenty to do, but Whale Away is also the perfect getaway to relax and take time out from the hectic city life.

                      This was a beautiful guest house. We had the honeymoon suite which was pure indulgence. The service was exceptional and very friendly. It is also very conveniently located 2 minutes walk away from the Cliff Walk which then takes a very beautiful 10 minutes to get to the old harbour where all the restaurants and action is. This meant we saw whales within 3 minutes of leaving the guest house with hardly any effort. Would definitely recommend this lovely place.
