Area Information:

Hermanus and the surrounding areas:

The Hermanus culture thrives all year round as it is often referred to as “The 365 day a year holiday destination"! Hermanus, a ricquaint town situated between majestic mountains and serene seas has gained worldwide recognition as the world's foremost land based (a few meters away) whale watching destination!

Conveniently located only one and a half hours from Cape Town International Airport, it’s an easy and beautiful scenic drive through the mountains. A coastal road option starting at the famous Gordon’s Bay will wind you along the ocean edge as part of the Cape’s exquisite Garden Route. Towns in close proximity (0.5 -2 hour drive) of Hermanus itself that are worthy attractions include Kleinmond, Betty’s Bay, Gansbaai, Stellenbosch and Franschoek.

Hermanus holds a unique appeal in that it offers all modern amenities whist still retaining its fisherman village charm that it is most loved for. It's easy to see why it’s one of South Africa’s favourite holiday locations and why it should be at the top of your list of places to visit!

Property Facilities:

The Whale Rock Estate offers:

Laze in the sun and cool off in the salt water rock swimming pool nestled in a pretty garden next to the clubhouse and squash court. Braai/bbq facilities make for festive entertainment options too!

The private beach allows for uninterrupted sea views, whale watching opportunities at your doorstep, giving you the chance to experience these majestic gentle giants up close and personal. Breathe in the champagne air and take an afternoon stroll along the private beach walking trails!

There are coin activated laundry facilities if required for the apartment guests. The beach has in house laundry facilities.

The estate is protected with 24 hour security at the gate as well as patrols of the premises. There are dedicated secure and free parking bays for your safety and convenience!

Attractions:

Hermanus is most famous for becoming a “Whale Wonderland” each year as the bay literally teems with tons of whales from June to November! We provide the perfect viewing spot as the house is beach front property. The Hermanus Whale Festival is a fitting way to mark the peak of the whale watching season at the end of September.

The Hermanus Whale Festival is the only Enviro Arts festival in the country. The truly magnificent Southern Right Whales are the star attractions of course, who completely steal the show ;) Aside from the “Whale Wonderland” that comes of Hermanus- music, art and food markets along with environmental activities make up the Festivals program that’s bound to leave you wanting more!

The heart of Hermanus town is a mere 3 km from the beach house and invites you to enjoy a large range of restaurant options! These include everything from beach front fine dining to quick stop take-aways! We supply a list of recommendations providing a multitude of cuisines and breath taking views to choose from. And most restaurants carry a selection of local wines which is a great way to celebrate South Africa’s famous wine heritage. Cheers! Ps. Bietang’s is world famous for its beach front Cave location and is our local must visit gem!

Conveniently situated only a short 1hr30min drive from Cape Town International Airport, your getaway begins with an easy and beautiful scenic route through the mountains. A coastal road option starting at the famous Gordon’s Bay will wind you along the ocean edge as part of the Cape’s exquisite Garden Route. Towns in close proximity (30min -2hr drive) of Hermanus itself that are worthy attractions include Kleinmond, Betty’s Bay, Gansbaai, Stellenbosch and Franschoek.

Hermanus offers over 300 activities to ensure a holiday of a lifetime,! Organize a whale watching excursion by boat or air! Meet the world’s only Whale Crier as he alerts you to the whereabouts of the whales by blowing his kelp horn. For an adventurous outdoors experience we recommend shark cage diving, kayaking, abseiling, treetop tours, quad biking, horseback riding and a 27 hole Hermanus golf course known to be one of the most beautiful in SA. Get your leisure on with our wine route, art route, speciality shops and pamper boutiques. Breathe in the champagne air with a stroll on our spectacular Cliff Paths along the rocky ocean front. Admire the most incredibly diverse floral fynbos kingdom (harbouring over 2000 different floral species) whilst hiking or biking in the Fernkloof Nature Reserve. Get the white sandy granules between your toes and laze on one of our pristine Blue Flag beaches taking advantage of our surfing fit waves, beach chair/umbrella hire, beach front restaurants, food trucks and beach bars!

The Heart of the Abalone farm which is next to the estate is a tourism company that provides visitors with the opportunity to experience, learn about and contribute towards the Abalone industry! More than that, its outreach programs are aimed at instilling a greater awareness and appreciation for our oceans and the life within them.

Hermanus offers something for everyone! Its beauty and adventure awaits you!

Well equipped apartment for 2 people overlooking the sea The security was efficient and friendly. Lovely views of the coastline and close to shops but need a car. Samantha was a great host who kept in touch and was very helpful without being overbearing. One could walk on the rocky path but it is not a swimming beach. Good value for money and we enjoyed our stay there
