Welcome to De Mond by Top Destinations Rentals,

This character-filled home in Vöelklip, whose past intertwines with several key figures in Cape history, offers modern comfort ideal for both relaxed family living and entertaining. "De Mond" occupies a large seafront erf with sweeping views across Walker Bay and the surrounding mountains and is the ideal setting for your well deserved Hermanus vacation.

The home traces its history back to the late 18th century, when Hendrik Cloete of Groot Constantia purchased grazing rights in the Hermanus area. In 1790 he built his holiday home here, naming it “Lustplaas”. Cloete spent many happy summer months in the home, with his guest list including the influential Lady Anne Barnard. In 1839 he sold the property, which then changed hands several times until it was subdivided in the early 1900’s. By the early 20th century Hermanus was growing in popularity as a holiday destination for well-heeled Capetonians. Among the regular visitors to the town was James Hamilton-Russell, a prominent member of parliament for the United Party. He purchased the home in 1946 and renamed it “De Mond House”, establishing it as a regular gathering point for his renowned family and friends, including United Party leader De Villiers Graaff.

De Mond now belongs to a discerning Cape Town family who have used their considerable talent and impeccable taste to lovingly restore and refine it into the wonderful warm and elegant home it is today. The home boasts re-claimed Oak floors, open eaves beneath immaculate thatched roofs, high quality craftsmanship throughout and walls over a metre thick that offer cool in the heat of summer and cosy warmth in the depths of winter. Interiors have been stylishly upgraded while maintaining a sense of the home’s unique past and include character-filled spaces for both public entertainment and private family time.

The Main Homestead offers three en-suite bedrooms as well as a farm-style kitchen, dining room, library and family room, plus a spacious lounge which leads out onto a vine-covered patio. Separate from the main house is a substantial Garden Cottage with another two en-suite bedrooms and a double garage. Rolling park-like gardens have been immaculately maintained, and include a number of mature trees.
