The staff are amazing and make your stay even more memorable. Rooms I cannot fault. I would however suggest that the pool area is redone (possibly adding a wooden deck) to fit in with the beautiful natural earthy feeling of the guest house.

About
Description
Schulphoek House is set on the seashore of the protected Schulphoek bay in Sandbaai (Sand Bay), Hermanus. From August till November Whales visit Schulphoek Bay and guests can enjoy whale gazing right More from their room or our rooftop patio. At Schulphoek we take great pride in preparing locally caught fish along with South Africa venison meat specialties on our daily menu. Since our major renovation in 2017 our new green building electricity has run on solar power. We also harvest and store rain water for use in our garden and our hot water and air conditioning runs on a solar powered Hydronic system. As a 5-Star establishment we have dedicated to delivering service excellence but with the local flair of South African traditional hospitality, our local staff are trained in-house and represent the diversity of our country and local community.
