Hermanus is the pretty southern coast town on Walker Bay in the Western Cape, known internationally for its whale watching history and tourism. The whaling exhibitions at the Old Harbour Museum will give visitors the background to whale activities in Hermanus, while whale watching can be done from the shore between June and December. Cage diving with great white sharks is also popular in the area, as well as water sports like yachting and kayaking.
Hermanus is approximately an hour’s drive from Cape Town, yet is far more tranquil, peaceful and personal than the Mother City. It’s worth your while to take advantage of Hermanus apartments for your holiday stay, but there is one particular apartment in Hermanus that stands out: 113 Bayview.
113 Bayview is a beautiful Eastcliff apartment situated just above Walker Bay, giving residents a wide panoramic vista of the bay and the stunning blue ocean. This is a prime whale watching spot – simply open the frameless windows to really bring the picturesque ocean view into the living room. The apartment is truly private with no access from the bay. Residents can take a relaxing stroll to the shopping centre, which has a small but variable selection of shops and restaurants, or a short drive to the Hermanus CBD for more variety, or to the golf course for some time on the fairway.
This three-bedroom luxury apartment allows for a maximum of six guests over a minimum stay of five nights; the preferred accommodation period is two to four weeks. There are three seasonal packages, ranging from R1 500 per night for up to two weeks, or R4 700 per week for two to four weeks or more during the Shoulder Season and Whale Season. During summer, expect to pay more for this luxury Hermanus apartment in peak season.
