A perfect position to watch the sea and just relax. Angel made us feel very welcome and was very helpful in making dinner reservations. We enjoyed walking along the cliff path although one section was quite challenging.

We booked the honeymoon suite for a weekend away, and it was excellent. The only glitch was that there was no-one to meet us when we arrived - the owner called us while we were driving and asked what time we would be arriving. We called her when we got there, and she did not answer - nor did she every return our calls, which was disappointing. However, her housekeeper Marna arrived and looked after us superbly for the entire weekend. The location is great, very quiet and spectacular views over the bay.

Room tip: The upstairs room is more expensive, and is adjacent to the lounge which can get noisy, but the views are good.

We stayed here for 3 nights with our 2 small children. Communication prior to our stay was a bit slow but to be fair our request to change rooms once during our stay in order to stay 3 nights was granted and also Ilana reserved the room for us without a deposit.
The guesthouse is perfectly situated directly at the oceanfront and the views are lovely! The guesthouse was very clean throughout and the rooms where well kept. The breakfast selection was tasty but small, although completely sufficient and prepared with care.
The manager and housekeeping staff are very friendly and helpful and do their best to take care of the guests.
Completely lacking however was the presence of the actual owners, or hosts of the guesthouse, they live in Hermanus and once the breakfast is over and the rooms have been cleaned there is no one on site for queries etc. This became a problem during our last night, when the septic tank overflowed onto the street and the entire house was filled with the smell. the contact numbers in the room where outdated, we tried multiple times to reach Ilana, and only when my husband threatened to call the fire department did she actually respond. The septic tank was then emptied and all was well, but we would have expected a short visit or a quick phone call in the morning with an apology for the inconvenience, none of which took place.
To sum up, the guesthouse is great and the location perfect, but it is run on auto-pilot and the owners are not present. So if you are looking for a hearty BnB experience, we would not recommend staying here. For this we have very warm memories of our previous stays at the whalesong lodge and Cliff lodge in de Kelders.

We are sorry for the unfortunate event you experienced. We did call the emergency staff after 10 at night who immediately solved the issue. We have 3 full time staff members and a live in house keeper to attend lovingly to all guests needs.

We had a lovely stay here for one night before a shark cage diving trip. We were only there from about 5pm to 6am but it was such a shame the weather was so misty and we couldn’t see the beautiful view from our terrace. It did clear a bit and we were lucky enough to see a whale, which is very unusual for this time of year!
Angel was amazing and so lovely - bringing us plates to have our dinner picnic and making coffee on arrival.
We would love to stay here again, for longer next time so we can enjoy the lovely setting.
