A spectacular seafront setting, warm welcome, luxurious rooms and delicious dining set the scene for a memorable stay. Schulphoek overlooks the bay from which it receives its name; an idyllic cove where whales often visit. A well-known eco-conscious refuge, this protected cove and its shoreline is also home to many birds, small and large mammals and marine life which can be viewed on the seashore paths nearby.
The guesthouse’s organic kitchen garden produces fresh vegetables and fruit for the daily three-course menu du jour, and local fishermen and farmers deliver venison and fish daily. Lasting friendships are born over dinner at the sea-facing common dining table and for those that enjoy a more intimate experience, private dining can be requested.
Each of the seven elegantly appointed rooms offer thoughtful touches and luxurious amenities. Generously sized superior, standard and family suites offer options with private patios overlooking the garden, or with sweeping views of the bay. With a wine cellar offering some twelve-thousand bottles of local and international vintages, the guesthouse is a real find for wine aficionados.
Those seeking time-out and relaxation can relax at our pool, or sip a gin and tonic on the veranda while the sun sets over the ocean or take a walk down to one of the calm sea pools or secluded beaches to take in the fresh Atlantic Ocean air.
Our hosts offer excellent local-knowledge concierge services to facilitate any of Hermanus’s diverse experiences. Other services include picnic baskets, wine-route trips, and a host of in-house conveniences such as laundry.
