  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This is a most charming residence, the room that we had was wonderful and it opened out onto the pool deck. It was quiet and restful. The owner Renee and her son Gawaine were such nice people. They gave us recommendations for restaurants and wineries and each one surpassed the previous one. They were so kind and helpful, far beyond what might be expected. The breakfast were excellent with so many choices of jams, marmalade’s and other confections. This is a really top notch B&B and we will be back.

    It was very easy to find the Nantucket B&B via google maps. We were very pleased about this nice welcome by Renee and Gawaine. The rooms were very nicely furnished as we had 2 rooms. The one was decorated in chinese style and the other one was the Ocean-View-room -we especially liked the second one. The breakfast-table (all guest were sitting together) was lovely and we had a very enjoyable breakfast (every day we got scrambled egg). While breakfast we had great conversation with Gawaine, who gave us very useful recommendations about what to do, where to dine and what so see in the surroundings. And also great ideas for our ongoing trip to Cape Town. So it was a very "personally" stay there, not like in a big hotel. If we ever come back, we'll stay there again for sure! Thank you so much for making our stay in South Africa so special. Greetings to Renee and Gawaine, Angela and Hans

    Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Aussicht aufs Meer, konnten die Küche benutzen und bekamen umfangreiche Auskünfte für Touren.

    Sehr gute Unterkunft für Hermanus

    Vom Zimmer "ocen view" konnten wir am Morgen Wale sehen. Super bequemes Bett. Lage etwas ausserhalb aber mit dem Auto kein Problem. W-Lan hatte leider nicht funktioniert.
