Hermanus apartment description

The luxurious, spacious garden-apartment (177 m2) is flooded with light and offers a stunning sea-view. The 25m2 terrace leads directly into the garden and to the pool. If you are lucky, you can even watch whales from the master-bedroom during the season or just let the look wander through the garden over Walker Bay! The equipment leaves little to be desired: Miele appliances, Nespresso coffee machine, Harman-Kardon sound system (for CD iPod/iPhone), travertine or white-washed wooden floorings (bedrooms), paintings from young South African artist Lionel Smit.... Everything one might expect is here. Complex and lovingly furnished with an eye for detail, modern with African elements. The kitchen offers all utensils for cooking enthusiasts and has direct access to a small patio with gas braai. A/C, underfloor heating, free WiFi-access. Additional garden furniture: 4 chairs, 1 table. (Price discount for 2 person booking, special conditions for long-term rentals)


Whale watching: Every year, between August and November, there is a great reunion in the sea by the village of Hermanus: hundreds of humpback whales from the Antarctic make their way towards Walker Bay, where they mate and give birth to their calves. The huge mother whales often allow themselves to drift with their calves within metres of the shore – almost close enough to touch, it would seem. Further out, the young whales dive and jump. Encountering these enormous and peaceful animals makes a lasting impression on every visitor. The UNESCO has confirmed Walker Bay as being one of the best whale observatory points in the world. Hermanus is proud of its sea dwellers, and celebrates an annual ‘Hermanus Whale Festival’ every September.

What is there to see in and around Hermanus?: Hermanus is encompassed by the Atlantic Ocean on one side, and unspoiled hill country on the other. Fernkloof Nature Reserve boasts various trails for walkers and hikers, which in turn offer breath-taking views of the coast and sea. The unique fynbos vegetation, including protea and numerous other indigenous plants, is a true feast for the eyes. Directly in front of ‘74 On Marine’, the “Cliff Path” coastal trail (grade: easy) meanders along the coast, passing picturesque bays and leading up to the seemingly endless sand dunes of Voëlklip (Blue Flag prize winner) at one end; at the other end, the trail leads into New Harbour. Hermanus boasts a comprehensive infrastructure with a wide variety of shops and restaurants to fit all purses. (www.fernkloof.com)

Excursions: Take a trip to the beautiful vineyards in the nearby and delightful Hemel-en-Arde-Valley, where you can indulge in a spot of wine-tasting or enjoy a meal out. Stellenbosch, Sommerset-West and Paarl – renowned for their wine and culture – are just one hour’s drive away. Another unforgettable experience is the drive to Franschhoek via Villiersdorp and the Franschhoek pass. Cape Town itself is just an hour and a half away – or two hours if you choose to take the scenic coastal route past Kleinmond and Betty's Bay.
