About 138 Marine Beachfront Guesthouse

The luxurious 138 Marine Beachfront Guesthouse in Hermanus is the proud winner of the Top Destination Award for the Best Four-Star Guesthouse in South Africa in 2015. In addition to this wonderful recognition, it also won the SA Tourism Awards in 2010, 2011 and 2013.

138 Marine Beachfront Guesthouse is a stylish retreat from the bustle of city living, and is perched right on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, with a sprawling deck next to the beach. Guests can soak up the sun on the spacious terrace, drinking in the views of the mountains and the sea, or can catch up on a good book on the deck, while sipping on some of the delicious estate wine. The fireplace inside is perfect for cooler evenings and guests that want to cosy up in front of the crackling logs.

Walks on the beach are a must, as are strolls along the coastal path, which showcases the fauna and flora of the rock pools, as well as the stunning fynbos skirting the guesthouse.
