Attractions

VoŽlklip is the premier suburb of Hermanus, nestled between towering mountains and one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in South Africa. Grotto Beach is perhaps the finest of the 4 Blue Flag beaches in Walker Bay. Far from the bustle of town central, this area is quiet, peaceful and safe. Just up the hill are hikes and mountain bike tracks, and just down the hill are the river mouth and beach. Around the bend, the magnificent Kleinrivier Lake opens up before you.

Grotto Beach, a few minutes walk from Whales and Sails, has pristine clean white sand and is perfect for swimming. In season, Grotto Beach is a kitesurfing hotspot. The cliff path, which sets off from central Grotto Beach, offers some of the most magnificent views you will find on the Cape coastline and is excellent for whale viewing in season.

Loadshedding Facilities

What is loadshedding? It refers to the temporary suspension of electricity provided by Eskom, South Africa's electricity provider, to reduce consumption and thereby the load on the national grid. To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.

Verified reviewexcellent

The host was so welcoming from start till the end and so understanding when we booked the weekend to attend an family wedding as family was from all area codes of the Eastern and Western Cape but we never considered the Rugby game and watched it there due to so much space and filled it up with noise and love as we all celebrated as the rest went home. that was the high light for the weekend with family. The place even had facilities that could accommodate the elderly hence we were there and that the view overlooking the mountains was breath taking every morning. But overall it was fantastic, wouldn't mind booking again.
