The lovingly restored historical homestead overlooks the Hermanus lagoon and Overberg Mountains and houses the café, dining room, lounge, library, wine cellar and tasting room.
There are two accommodation choices, the luxurious Lagoon Lodge which has only 5 safari-style stone, glass and thatch suites opening onto a private deck with mountain views. Rooms are tastefully furnished with king bed, sitting area, desk, fireplace and ceiling fan. The ensuite is a real treat with large tub, copper sink and outdoor shower. The main area has a dining area, lounge with fireplace and heating plunge pool overlooking the mountains.

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
