Budget Getaways Review

With a casual and relaxed holiday vibe, Whalers is a simple, yet comfortable four-bedroom home that's an easy walk from the Hermanus town centre, it's coastal path and the seafront. 

Taking a poke around, the house has everything you’ll need for your stay, including a well-equipped kitchen (dishwasher included), two spacious living areas, indoor and outdoor braai facilities, a natural rock plunge pool for the summer months and even a pool table in the living room to pass a cosy indoor winter evening.

Bedrooms are in no short supply either, with full capacity sitting at 11 people at a push. The family room offers twin beds and a double sleep couch; the two double bedrooms have a Queen and double bed, respectively, while the fourth bedroom has a double bed and one twin. All have their own ensuite bathrooms with showers. Linen and bath towels are supplied.

The mod-cons in the house include free WiFi, and you'll find off-street parking for your beloved charriot.

A chilled, easy-going and good value for money option if you’re heading to Hermanus with a group of friends or two families sharing.

"I found the facilities to be very clean and welcoming. There is a lovely braai area inside and outside and the pool is well looked after. It is a perfect home for a family holiday or for team building."

"The host Amy was fantastic and always just a call away. We liked the rustic appearance of the place - makes one feel like you on holiday. Will definitely go back & recommend to family and friends."

"On the standards and facilities there is no problems. It has a very good setting. A very polite and very good personality who always goes that extra mile for her tenants. It was not the first time that I went there and it also won't be the last."
