Thank you Barry for a lovely stay. A wonderful guest house, our every need catered for. Even coffee brought to me at the pool. Fabulous breakfast, fabulous views of the ocean through every window and door.

The Host was brilliant and funny, the place was spotless and stunning. The only reason I would have wanted an Air-con that day is it was 40 degrees Celsius. Other wise all was perfect and I thank you for a stunning stay.

We stayed for 2 nights and could not have been happier with the location, the comfort and the service. Barry in particular was tremendous - making sure we were well looked after without being intrusive. The clifftop walk was just across the road and between the New Harbour and the town itself we enjoyed the best of Hermanus from a...

We stayed here for just one night along our route East. We could have easily stayed much longer. Barry was a superb host. Everything here was well thought out and has lots of nice little touches. Good size bedroom with brilliant shower. Private balcony with furniture. Breakfast was terrific. Highly recommended.

We stayed for 2 nights and had an awesome stay. We had 2 rooms with brilliant ocean views and 1 room with a garden view. The guest house is tastefully decorated and Barry was the perfect, most welcoming, jolly, funny, helpful and informative host. This is one of the best guest houses we stayed in during our stay in SA....

Harbour Vue was the perfect guest house, lovely views of the ocean, a had a great spacious room. I was only there for 3 nights but I could quite easily stayed for a week or 2. Barry was a great host and nothing was to much for him, he made the stay even more enjoyable. I enjoyed eating at the...

A bit far out of Hermanus but that's the only criticism! Barry was great" lovely spacious rooms, breakfast good but we didn't care for communal dining! Felt secure and safe at all times. Lovely coastal walk across from property and wonderful dining place within walking distance

From the warm, comical greetings on arrival to the heartfelt hugs on departure... Harbour Vue feels like a home away from home. Barry is an absolute gem of man and made us feel so welcome & cared about. He even personally delivered freshly made coffee to our room to sip on while we soaked up every inch of the beautiful...
