Whale Rock Lodge

Talk about manicured lawns, a faultless facade and an impeccable appearance, with not a thing out of place, and you’re clearly describing Whale Rock Lodge in Hermanus. With service to suit and luxury touches throughout, this lodge exceeds all expectations.

Even on arrival, the entrance hints towards the grandeur of what lies beyond. Previously just the lodge, this property now also includes a Villa since December 2017, making this the ultimate coastal sanctuary with an intimate feel and focus on the finer details.

Situated in Westcliff, the Bakker Family prides themselves on excellent service and a more than comfortable stay in contemporary styled rooms. This owner run property, with distant sea-views, could easily be featured in any home or interior magazine for its simple elegance and chic style.

17 Luxurious rooms and suites. From Deluxe to Family, there’s a room for all types of travellers. Each individually and stylishly decorated with the added comforts of a ‘home away from home’. You’ll wish you could stay longer.

All rooms offer - 100% Percale linens, en-suite bathroom with separate bath and shower, flat screen TV with selected DSTV bouquet, wi-fi, minibar, hairdryer, international plugs, safes and top quality both & body products.


Honesty bar, buffet breakfasts, light lunch menu, 2 cosy lounges with fireplaces, library lounge with fireplace, 2 breakfast rooms, 2 swimming pools (solar heated), lavish gardens, free wi-fi, secure parking, laundry services, child minding on request, activity and transfer bookings.


One block in from the beach, you’re well situated for all the activities on offer in Hermanus. A stone’s throw to the start of Cliff Path and just across from New Harbour, where you’ll find the whale watching charters.

Enjoy wine hopping, Fernkloof Nature Reserve, country markets, Voelklip Beach, Grotto Beach, Hoy’s Koppie, Klipgat Caves in Walker Bay Nature Reserve, the Big Cat Sanctuary, Galleries, Old Harbour Museum and of course plentiful dining experiences along the coast.
The list of things to do is endless and time here is simply never enough to explore it all.

Surval Boutique Olive Estate

Close your eyes and imagine blue skies, manicured lawns and a country side manor overlooking orchards and a backdrop of mountains. And well, you’re on the doorstep of the elegant and sophisticated Surval Boutique Olive Estate in Oudtshoorn.

De Denne Guest House

Cadbury’s got his eye on you. And it’s a big one. He’s got the largest peeper of any land animal. And Suzie’s his missus so watch your step. Johan and Louise Keller are billed as the owners but what’s the bet their resident counterparts are the real deal here? This is a working farm. An ostrich one. Cadbury and Suzie are great, big, flightless birds. And probably top dogs.

Buffelsdrift Game Lodge

Buffelsdrift Game Lodge is a quiet, convenient and scenic two-night stopover along the Garden Route's road less travelled - Route 62. A short drive from Oudtshoorn, the game lodge offers peaceful, comfortable accommodation with a game drive thrown in for good measure.
