Cottage in Hermanus, Overberg, Cape Town and Garden Route, South Africa - Quiet Neighbourhood, About 10 Minutes Walk To The Cliff Path Where You Can View The Whales
Robin's is our holiday home and is situated in a safe, quiet neighbourhood close to the shops and village centre. There is a lovely flow to the house where the open plan living area extends naturally to the pool terrace, BBQ area and garden which is private and peaceful. Local birds frequent the garden and it is full of flowering shrubs and trees. There are cliff paths and mountain walks close buy and within three miles is the Walker Bay wine distract.

About the Owner
We three, Bre, My lovely husband Graham and our son, Conor are lucky enough to have a wonderful holiday home in Hermanus. We live in UK in North Wales, in beautiful rural countryside and really country bumpkins. Hermanus has the feel of a small town though it has all the amenities of a bigger place and we just love it. South Africa get's under your skin, it's bad for your waistline but good for your soul. Be warned it's totally addictive and when you've been once, you'll want to visit again and again. That's what happened to us in 2000 on our first visit. Louise, one of our closest friends, looks after the house for us and she'll be around to help and advice you if it's your first visit. We're very flexible so give us ring and visit Hermanus. You won't regret it.
