Reviews (4)
5 out of 5

An original converted fishermans cottage 300m walk to sea cliffs.The house can accomodate up to 15 guests. We have private rooms and single and dorm rooms available at our accomodation in Hermanus. Hermanus is a famous beach side town famous for whale watching , hiking , wine tasting, horseriding, kiteboarding, Stand up paddleboarding , scuba and snorkeling.We can arrange all these activities during your stay with us here.
WHY SURF HERMANUS ? Hermanus is still a pretty much undiscovered surf destination for travelling surfers from abroad and we at Hermanus surf school are the ones changing that and marketing this stunning town as a surf destination. We are the ONLY surf school and surf house in the town and we are very lucky to have great uncrowded surf when we are giving our surf lessons unlike other towns ( e.g Cape Town ) which have so many surf schools and camps making it hard to get a wave to yourself ! We pretty much have our own private beach here ! So if you want the perfect chilled expierence without the hassles and crowds like in the cities look no further !

Location

We are a surf camp and surf house 100 km from Cape town city centre. Our shuttle is available 24 / 7 for guests wanting to join our camp

Awesome home away from home in stunning small seaside town. I felt very safe in Hermanus compared to other towns and cities in South Africa . You can walk around solo without any problems !

How did you like the accommodation?

     

Hermanus is one of the most beautifull beach towns i have ever seen ! Im very greatfull to have stayed at Ryans surf lodge. He is most welcoming and passionate ! The sea and town centre is a short walk from his house and nature reserve. Some awesome nightlife and world class restuarants at your feet... That that you need as Ryan cooks most nights .. Seafood you name it ..


How were the surf lessons?

     

Surf lessons were epic ! There are no other surf schools in Hermanus so you really feel that you are free from crowds and hassles . Ryan did many lessons himself and likes to take charge . He is a professional surf instructor and understands all the faults that learners make when starting out. The gear is all new and great also. The water warm and blue and we saw seals and dolphins !

Hermanus is truly a paradise. Small beach town with friendly locals , warm water, small waves perfect for learning and general good vibes. the surf house is also just a short walk into the town sqaure . good shopping , bars and resturants and night life. African town with a mediterranian twist. Hermanus is also the whale capital of the world . watch them from the cliffs !
