Birkenhead House, Hermanus

Accommodation in The Whale Coast

This is the ultimate beach house, dramatically perched on a cliff-top overlooking Walker Bay and flanked on either side by a sandy beach cove.

There is simply no need to ever leave this opulent, all-inclusive boutique hotel, with its outstanding sea views, delicious meals and welcoming, easy-going atmosphere. In whale season you can even watch southern right and humpback whales breaching from your lounger beside the one of the two swimming pools.

Previously the owners’ beach house, this five-star hotel has a wonderfully laid-back, intimate atmosphere with all the luxury and lavish detail you expect from a property of this calibre. The excellent service is unobtrusive yet always very attentive. The varied and delicious meals prepared daily by Executive Chef Ziyaad Brown celebrate Cape cuisine and fresh seafood, accompanied by fine South African wines. Don’t miss the famous breakfast buffet, declared by many guests to be the best brunch they’ve ever tasted.

The 11 bedroom suites – spread across the three different houses that make up Birkenhead House – are each individually decorated in a luxurious contemporary style that mixes modern and antique furnishings. Every bedroom has a balcony offering mountain or sea views, as well as an unusually spacious bathroom. Round off your stay with a relaxing massage or beauty treatment at the in-house spa, where professional therapists offer a comprehensive range of treatments.
