“A little part of heaven”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Thank you Petra and Edmond for making us feel so welcome in your wonderful home. This is our third visit to Von Abercron and will not be our last. Petra is so warm and friendly we feel as if we have known her for years. It is so close to the Fernkloof Nature Reserve it is only a short walk from The house. Your garden and swimming pool are just breathtaking with the Fernkloof reserve in the background with baboons, sugarbirds weaver birds, guinea fowl, etc. Absolute Paradise.

Overall experience at Von Abercon was great. Pleasant friendly environment very homely. Breakfast that was included in the price was absolutely tantalising and filling. The room was beautiful, neat and more than enough for what was needed. The only recommendation I would make would to make accommodtion for an aircooling/aircondition system in the room and also to advise that their is floor heating in the room so that theremometre is for that.

However, the hostess was most welcoming and I would recommend the accommodation to anyone that would ask my opinion.

We have spent the first time in Hermanus (unfortunately) only two nights at Abercron Residence but felt like we have been there already before. A very warm welcome and treatment all the time of our stay by Petra. Caring for us, having good recommendations and a stunning "personalized" breakfast made our stay a special one! A cosy room with an exquisite bathroom and a stunning garden with swimming pool at the foot of the mountain give 100% privacy as there is no one above.

We will be back in Hermanus and we will be back at Abercron Residence, for sure more than only two nights!

Room Tip: All available rooms are recommendable. One should know that Abercron Residence is as mentioned at th...

It was great and we definately encourage and holiday maker to book in. Absolute peace and complete quieteness. The area is surrounded by natural beauty and it also helps to have a great host like Petra and her family.

Room Tip: Rooms on mountain side are superb.

I have just returned from a 1 day trip to Hermanus, and spent last night at this Residence. It was absolutely magnificent! My room overlooked the pool, with views to die for! Magestic mountain in my backyard! The room is decorated in white and turqoise, with a bit of navy. Modern, with an exquisite bathroom! In the bedroom there is also a cabinet with TV on top, and inside coffee and tea making facilities, plus a small fridge with cold drinks (R10) and beer (R15). I paid R500 for the night, which included a superb breakfast in the morning. Perhaps a bit steep, but really worth the money! Petra made me feel really welcome!

We have just spent 3 weeks staying in the Rose Suite, Von Abercron Residence. The location is excellent, a safe and attractive area, very convenient for all attractions in Hermanus and the surrounding areas. Petra could not have been more helpful, booking restaurants and giving very good advice. On our arrival we found the Rose Suite to be a little musty, the cupboards in the kitchen and bedroom smelt damp which improved by keeping them open during our stay and though the kitchen was quite well equipped apart from a microwave oven there was no effective oven and the portable electric hot plates needed updating. The suite was very well serviced during out stay but we felt the mattresses were not really up to standard. Attention to detail would make this a winner!
