Birkenhead House, perched on the cliffs above the two best swimming beaches in the coastal resort town of Hermanus, an hour and a half drive from Cape Town, offers a luxurious and unique getaway. From May to November, Hermanus is one of the prime whale watching spots for the Southern Right Whale and where whales can be spotted from the shore or, at Birkenhead House, from your bed!
There are ten en-suite rooms, all with magnificent sea views and one en-suite room with a fabulous mountain view. All suites are tastefully decorated in a stylish seaside Caribbean style, with all amenities to ensure a comfortable and memorable stay. A dual-level swimming pool in the wind free courtyard offers a cool option away from the waves, or guests may enjoy a cocktail in the rim flow pool overlooking the ocean. The honeymoon suite has it's own private plunge pool.
Leading off the courtyard is a gym and treatment room for those days when relaxation and pampering are on your mind. World-class cuisine and personalized service is the order of the day. Rates are inclusive of all meals, local beverages, house wine, tea, coffee and laundry.
Activities offered at an additional cost include shark diving, quad biking, tours to local wine farms, sea kayaking, boat fishing, horse riding & golf.
