Aloe House Guest Lodge

0   0   0   0

Aloe House is centrally located, only a 4-minute walk to the village, as well as the famous cliff paths for whale-watching. Our 4 standard suites and 1 luxury suite are stylishly furnished and overlook the pool and garden.

Aloe House Guest Lodge is situated in Hermanus, in the Overberg region of the Western Cape - on the famous 'South Coast Whale Route'. Hermanus is known as one of the best land-based whale-watching sites in the world and has lots to offer the visitor, besides whale-watching:

Enjoy breathtaking scenery ranging from walks on long sandy beaches to mountain hikes surrounded by the 'fynbos' vegetation.

The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (Heaven on Earth) has an interesting 'wine meander' where one can taste excellent local wines at the various vineyards. And what would traveling be without sampling the local cuisine? Enjoy the diverse selection of restaurants and bars in Hermanus and the surrounding region.

For the adventure lover, there is much on offer: parasailing, sand-boarding, shark-cage-diving, water sports, quad-biking and much more.
For those in search of tranquility and relaxation, Hermanus is also the ideal spot: Take a stroll from our guest house to the village with its quaint shops, craft market and museums, or to the cliff paths to view a whale breaching only metres away!

Hermanus is centrally located as a base for visiting many interesting towns in the area: from Greyton with its lovely old houses, beautiful gardens and great restaurants to Cape Agulhas - the southern most tip of Africa, where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet, and the famous Stellenbosch and Franschhoek wine lands, with many more towns and villages in between.
Hermanus is only 120km from Cape Town, and en-route to the Garden Route, so it makes an ideal stopover for a traveler touring the Cape region.
