138 Marine


Luxury beach house in Walker Bay

138 Marine is an elegant guesthouse just outside Hermanus, a picturesque town on the Garden Route that is famous for its world-class whalewatching. The hotel is just an hour’s drive from Cape Town International Airport and is an ideal stopover on any foray down the Garden Route. It is located on the beachfront, just a stone's throw away from the Indian Ocean, and a short hop from the town with its inviting restaurants, bars, craft markets, boutiques and art galleries!

Accommodation consists of four double rooms and a newly built family room, each with ocean views and each slightly different. Facilities include en-suite bathrooms with twin basins, underfloor heating, Satellite TV (if you must), hairdryer and an electronic safe. The family room boasts a private entrance and is separate from the main building, with single beds for the kids. The main lounge is the ideal place to relax with panoramic vistas of the tumultuous sea and the mountain range, and a roaring fire for those chilly evenings. Enjoy your meals amidst the fresh air of the mountain terrace or have a picnic on the beach, before spoiling yourself with a private treatment or massage.

Hermanus is renowned for the world's best land-based whalewatching, and you can see these massive mammals breaching and blowing from June to December each year. 138 Marine is the perfect base from which to enjoy this amazing natural spectacle as hundreds of Southern Right Whales congregate to mate and calve in Walker Bay. The hotel's setting is stunning, right on the beachfront with great views of the Indian Ocean and nearby mountain range. You can also get up close and personal with Great Whites on a shark cage diving excursion, tee off on a top-class golf course and go hiking in one of the many nature reserves. Not too shabby, eh?

Bedrooms all have satellite TV Sea views Secure parking Spa Swimming pool WIFI
