      We loved everything about our stay, from the beautiful garden to the games and DVDs provided. Central location as we could visit Stony point to view penguins, the botanical gardens in Betty's bay, beach in Kleinmond. Also got to see whales in Hermanus! Was a great break.

      We stayed in the Garden House for 14 nights in December 2014. The house is clean, neat and has everything you need for an enjoyable holiday at the beach.

      Great little cottage with excellent, modern finishes. Very comfortable and clean. Perfect location, with just a short drive to Hermanus and the Hemel & Aarde wine valley. Great communication with the owner, Marc, as well. Can definitely recommend for anyone wanting a nice little break from the hustle and bustle of city life!

      The Garden House is really beautiful and we recommend it to anyone. We really enjoyed our stay. We loved the artwork and the exceptionally well-equipped kitchen. It is worth a visit just to see the shower.
