The Mission's House is superlative accommodation, featuring an interesting historic building in a prime location just 5 minutes walk from the seafront and with easy access to local bars and restaurants. The interior of the house boasts period furniture, comfortable soft furnishings, and quality paintings and sculptures on the walls and in the enclosed courtyard.The property is not only aesthetically attractive, it is also functional, with a well-equipped kitchen, spacious, light bedrooms, and two bathrooms with the option of a roll top bath or a power shower. There is a formal dining room as well as a large table in the courtyard for alfresco dining. Overall, the ambiance of the house is calm, characterful, quirky and welcoming. We spent a memorable three nights in this property in mid-March and found it ideal as a base for visiting Hermanus but also for travelling further afield to see the penguins at Betty's Bay and to enjoy the beach at Gordon's Bay. To be honest, it was sometimes a wrench to leave this delightful house which cocooned us in its embrace and kept calling us back. Finally, we must mention our hosts, Braelea and Glenda, who were efficient in their correspondence and warm, friendly and generous in their welcome. They are perfect guardians of this wonderful property which we unreservedly recommend.
Superb. 5 out of 5
