An extremely well equipped apartment, in an ideal location, made for a wonderful 6 day whale watching holiday. Seeing a whale breaching in the bay, while looking through the bedroom window, was an undoubted highlight.

This is a stunning property with perfect location. Everything (shopping, restaurants and best land based whale watching) was within walking distance which made our holiday hassle free with our two small children. The apartment is really spacious and luxurious. This is what you call home away from home. The large patio and garden access is lovely and the apartment has beautiful views. Even on a rainy day it is still pleasant. It was quite cold during our stay, but the underfloor heating made it lovely inside. Can't wait to go back!

We LOVED staying at Apartment 102! Linda, the owner, was very courteous and professional. We enjoyed watching for whales right from our bedroom. The apartment was well furnished & equipped and very spacious. I would move there tomorrow if I could! I would also highly recommend the Burgundy restaurant that is mere steps from the apartment. It was the culinary highlight of our three week trip!

Beautiful apartment in the perfect location, walking distance from everything important. The apartment is very well equiped, clean and spacious. The views are lovely, especially from the stoep when braaiing. Linda, the owner, is friendly and accessible. We had a wonderful time and will certainly use it again.

We had the privilege to stay again at the Apartment 102, 74 on Marine rive in Hermanus. The Apartment is truly fantastic, the location i right on Gearings Point and you can wake up with the beautiful views of the ocean and the fresh ocean air. In whale season you could watch the whales from the Apartment. The Apartment is located very close to shops and restaurants and you could easily walk. Everything about the place is perfect.

The apartment is massive with beautiful views of the bay. It is within walking distance to most restaurants and shops. The apartment is serviced daily. We had a problem with the gas braai being out of gas, but the problem was solved within a day.
