Birkenhead House & Villa

From its stunning cliff top position in the town of Hermanus, Birkenhead House enjoys exhilarating ocean views and close proximity to the beach. Breezy beach house style is mixed with contemporary artwork and opulent furnishings to create an elegant and inviting environment.

Eleven suites with either sea or mountain views offer the height of comfort and luxury: balconies, under floor heating and huge bathtubs allow guests to make the most of their stay, whatever the weather.

Spa, pool and gym offer the chance for indulgence, relaxation or exercise. Cliff and beach walks are an invigorating way to take the air. After a sundowner overlooking the ocean, the freshest seafood and most delicious international cuisine can be enjoyed. From morning coffee and cake to hot chocolate beside the fire, there is always something delectable on offer.

For families and those who seek a little more privacy, the self-contained Birkenhead Villa is a stylish alternative. Five suites have views of ocean or pool; all are luxuriously decorated in classic seaside white. The Villa has its own chef so meals are tailored to guests’ tastes. Children can play happily and safely in the garden or on the nearby beach whilst the town with its shops, markets and other attractions is close at hand, a complimentary transfer service making it easy to explore.

Service in both House and Villa is attentive and personalized, the atmosphere homely, relaxed and fun. Unique in their combination of glamorous interiors, informal ambience and scenic location, these two properties are a special way to enjoy the delights of beach and ocean.
