“terrible location”
Reviewed 26 April 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The apartment is next to a massive and busy fish farm with a township at the rear.The apartment is advertised as being "Beach Front" but is not- other properties and a road are in front of the apartment.Also,there is no private beach,just a small wooden bench above rocks.

Well equipped and immaculately clean. Directions were excellent and we were met and shown the apartment exactly as planned.

The ocean is visible from the apartment but it is not situated on the ocean as I understood from the details. It's location is a little out of the town and being to the west of the New Harbour means it is tricky to walk along the cliffs into town as you have to walk inland past the factories to get back to the sea

“An ideal base just a short drive from New Harbour ”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed the peace and quiet away from the whale festival in Hermanus. Secure gated estate near the New Harbour and an ideal base. Book early if you want to eat at Harbour Rock restaurant as was fully booked for our first night. We booked a boat trip from the harbour and enjoyed exploring the spectacular beaches either side of Hermanus. Grotto beach and Kleinmond beach being favourites.
Took a glass of wine each night to the rocks as no.57 is second row from the beach. Lovely sunsets.
Apartment was clean and well equipped and even had The Ryder cup showing on tv!
Bed was our only gripe being rather firm and very creaky!

“Good fun, loads of laughter and totally "sMASHing"”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The ideal breakaway spot for 4 - 6 people. Within walking distance from the beach. Equipped with all you need for a relaxing, fun-filled experience. The decor is welcoming and puts one in a relaxed mode as you enter the front door. The location and immediate facilities allows one to enjoy a relaxed weekend should you wish to simply just park your car and not drive into town and/or visit other tourist attractions. I will most certainly return and will recommend Hermanus Whale View Self Catering to all!

“A magical get-a-away!”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Hermanus Whale View Self Catering is an absolute gem! I was lucky enough to celebrate my birthday weekend here with friends. It's quiet, relaxing and with just a quick stroll down the path... it's so close to the sea, definitely one of the best views I've had while enjoying my morning coffee as well as evening sun-downers! What a treat, a little piece of paradise and I will definitely be back again! Thank you Hermanus Whale View Self Catering for making my birthday so memorable!
