Hornbill House

Hornbill House provides luxury accommodation in the coastal village of Hermanus, a major stop on the Whale Route. A 90-minute drive from Cape Town, this holiday town is the perfect getaway from where to watch schools of southern right whales migrating to the warm waters of the Cape.

Originally starting out as a ceramic studio, this rustic home has evolved into a gallery, garagiste winery and guesthouse. The exclusive vintages found at the winery are made by family and friends, all sourcing their grapes from the nearby “Hemel-en-Aarde” valley. As one makes their way to the beachfront, you will find the ocean teeming with life. Seasonal whales are joined by humpbacks, dolphins, African Penguins, Cape fur seals and a myriad of seabirds. Two Saturday morning markets are also a stone’s throw away.

At Hornbill House, enjoy the art set up in the gallery before heading through to your 4-star rooms where you will have access to complimentary Wi-Fi, satellite TV and a fully-equipped kitchenette.
