    Lovely apartment in a house within walking distance to Hermanus. Friendly owners - great place to stay. No whales to be seen although we were told they were there - luck of the day. Good restaurants nearby.

    Thank you Christine, for your review. Sorry about the whales, they have been uncharacteristically scarce, lets hope the next season is a bumper one. Hermanus is one of the best land based whale destinations and has great natural beauty to compliment it.

    Our hosts are very kind and gave us lot of advices during our stay in Hermanus which is a wonderfull city closed to the sea. We appreciated that our hosts lighted the wood-burner each afternoon to ensure a confortable stay in their house.

    As far as I am aware the open top red bus operates in the Cape Town area doing tours of the City and surrounds. Hermanus is well worth a visit on its own merits and very easy to navigate. Day tours are readily available
