Welcome to A Whale of a Time – Hermanus

A self catering 4 bedroom holiday home, situated centrally in Voëlklip Hermanus, with beautiful sea and mountain views.

The house is only rented to one group at a time – you would not have to share with strangers if you don’t take the whole house.

The house is very centrally located and is only a  10 minute walk to the Hermanus Grotto beach.

It has a great open plan entertainment area with a dining room table that seats 14 people.

An entertainers delight.

There is also an indoor and outdoor braai. The braai on the back patio opens to the kitchen with stacking doors. The back patio can seat 10 people.

The house is well equipped with dishwaser , washing machine, tumble dryer, double door fridge/freezer , wine cooler, Nespresso coffee machine

The property is completely fenced off.

There is also a Double garage for your personal use.


Myself and my internationally well-travelled friend had the privilege of staying at A Whale Of A Time. We were welcomed by the beautiful setting and comforted by the amazing quality of the linen and felt right at home.  Everything is beautifully styled and convenient and we can’t wait to go back.

I stayed at ‘A whale of a time’ with a group of friends for a 3 night stay in November 2017. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of furnishing, well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. The house is very roomy for eight guests and it’s a dream to entertain. Nice sea view from the lounge and dining room and the beach and lagoon is a short stroll away. The main street was no bother and the back patio with lovely mountain view is a great place to braai. Highly commendable establishment !

We had a great stay! The house boasts the most beautiful sea views and the front porch was ideal for sundowners. We spent most of the weekend on the back porch and around the huge dining table, just catching up and enjoying ourselves! The house is incredibly beautiful and is kitted out with the best quality kitchenware, furniture and art. Although the house is located on the outskirts of Hermanus, it did not bother us at all - it's only a five minute drive and you'll find yourself in town. We were warned against baboons and that we should keep everything closed when we are not at home, but we think they were also on holiday. Thank you very much, Whale of a Time, hopefully you will see us soon again! It was a weekend for the books!

A Whale of a Time Holiday Home is one of those holiday places where you walk in and feel at home! A beautiful well equipped house with a great inside open plan entertainment area and an outside braai. Sea views from the entertainment area and a stone throw away from the closest beaches. Being situated in Voelklip you are also away from the town’s hustle and bustle, but close enough to hop out and get what you need! A must choice if you planning holiday time in Hermanus.

Great location and access to Voelkip bathing beaches. Comfortably furnished bedrooms and a wonderful open-plan entertaining area and outdoor braai area. A real home-from-home!
