138 Marine Beachfront Guest House

Bed & Breakfast Accommodation In Sandbaai

138 Marine Beachfront Guesthouse have won the Top Destination Award for the BEST FOUR STAR GUESTHOUSE in SOUTH AFRICA in 2015. We also won SA Tourism Awards in 2010, 2011 and 2013.

It is a luxurious, upmarket guest house with spectacular sea front views. It is one of the few guesthouses in the Hermanus area which is situated right at the beachfront - any closer and you'd have a whale in your bath!

Spend lazy, sun-filled afternoons on the spacious terrace with panoramic views of the ocean and the surrounding mountains. Relax with a glass of estate wine on the deck next to the beach, or in front of the cosy open fire place and enjoy spectacular African sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean. Or stroll along the coastal path among rock pools, sea shells and fynbos bordering the guesthouse.

The extensive breakfast menu changes daily. On request, a picnic can be provided to enjoy on the beach in front of the guest house, and on-site wellness therapies can be arranged.
