They were very kind and the breakfast was delicious. The sea breeze view in the morning was good. The environment is safe and quiet. Although I stayed for work purposes I enjoyed myself very much. I will definitely make a booking at Sandbaai Country House again. Recommended anybody to make a booking there."

"We stayed seven nights in Saandbaai Country House end of October 2018 .
We enjoyed it very much. The house is situated very close to the sea and the view is breathtaking.
I was watching the dolphins swimming and playing in the sea from the terrace.

Our hosts were very nice and helpful in every way. The breakfast was wonderful and offered a wide variety of breads, homemade jams juices and made to order omelettes.
It is not a modern house, it has a sort of antique charm to it.
We would definitely come again.

"The beach"

Kaylee Van Heerden | 6 March 2017

"We really loved everything about the place.

My only problem was the ' Welcome ' we got from the owner. Was ' much to be desired.' Almost a grunt ' hallo ' took my papers and disappeared into his office and then a pleasant young lady asked me to follow her. We had booked an upstairs De Luxe room and were taken to a downstairs room. Needless to say when I spoke to the owner need I say more? However we will return sometime and have recommended it to family."

"Good value"

(South Africa) Alison Cope | 10 November 2013

"Lovely views from our room, spotlessly clean, friendly people, and a wonderful breakfast - what more can one ask for? Away from city centre, which can be a blessing or inconvenience, depending on what you are looking for. We would stay here again."

The only problem was that the pool was green, but luckily I had no plans to swim anyway."

(South Africa) Michelle Abrahams | 10 January 2013

"The stay at Sandbaai Country House was splendid. Myself and my boyfriend was very impressed of how stylish their rooms were, and how close it is situated to Hermanus and Onrus. The Fern Kloof Nature Reserve is a definite must, loved the view! It was exactly what we needed!"


"A few problems"

(South Africa) Wade Scott | 10 January 2013

"- Very noisy

"Great for family"

(South Africa) Jeanne Lochner | 25 July 2011

"Relaxing"

(South Africa) Judy Kock | 27 December 2010

"Our room was really stylishly and comfortably furnished and the ocean was just a few steps from our patio doors. Breakfast was very appetising. Thanks to Riaan and Angelique. Will see you again."


"Good stay in Hermanus area!"

(South Africa) Anonymous | 25 October 2009

"In total a nice Guesthouse, but nothing exceptional or extraordinary. Room was very tidy, but small things didn«t work well e.g. door of the shower couldn«t be closed, room door stack in the locker, shower should be refurbished."


"Fantastic"

(South Africa) Dr. Nceba Z. Somhlaba | 7 January 2008

"My partner and I had a very restful holiday in Hermanus's Sandbaai Country House. We found the guest house, as well as the greater Hermanus area, to be a fantastic place to spend a holiday when needing rest after a long & taxing year. We certainly would recommend the place to others."


"Highly recommended"

(South Africa) anne van rooyen | 23 October 2007

"A delightful stay in such exquisite surrounds-and what a comfortable bed! We were made to feel very welcome.

It was so tranquil to be out of Hermanus.

Thank you. "

"Sandbaai for a Family"

(South Africa) Rob | 15 January 2013

"As a family of four Sandbaai was perfect for us with two separate rooms, securely locked off and secure for a family. Kids aged 8 and 10 were very happy in their adjacent room.

It was a very short and easy drive from the main attractions in Hermanus and it was nice to be out of the hustle and bustle over the busy festive season. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. we would gladly stay there again."

" Early September 2009 we invited our daughter's family for a 2-week stay in South Africa. We didn't realize what an effort it would take to find lodging for 3 generations: Our daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren ages 3 and 5 years old. The child-friendly, elegant, Sandbaai Country Guest House was the perfect place for our 3-night visit to the Hermanus area. We had 3 rooms overlooking the sea with a common entrance (similar to a 2-story flat).
When our son-in-law fell ill with a bad case of the flu, Riian came to the rescue in a flash. Not only did he recommend and arrange for our visit to the hospital, but he diligently kept in touch with the medical staff that was attending our son-in-law during his overnight hospitalization, as well as relaying the information on to us while we visited sites in the area.
The entire staff at the Sandbaai Guest house went out of their way for us, from washing the kiddies clothes to recommending and making reservations for meals and activities at child-friendly establishments within minutes of the guest house.
We liked the location, the decor, peacefulness, and spaciousness of the guest house. We enjoyed spending time in the lounge and game room overlooking Walker Bay. The guest house is in a safe residential area where the children had room to play, and only minutes away from the tourist attractions in Hermanus.
We thank the entire staff of Sandbaai, especially Riian, for providing us with a "home away from home" and a sense of warmth and caring.

"Satisfaction personified"

(United Kingdom) Mr Humphries | 24 March 2009

"We can't fault the location, service, food and friendliness of this establishment.

The views of the bay make for a very relaxing stay and would recommend it to anyone."


"Fantastic Stay"

(Great Britain) Mr & Mrs Arnold | 7 October 2007

"We had the loveliest 2 nights at Sandbaii. The friendliest hosts ever. Our room was lovely with a great view and the breakfast was gorgeous. We hope to definitely return one day."

"You could not hope to meet better hosts than Angelique and Riann. Sandbaai was everything it looks like on the website. The rooms were more than comfortable, the views spectacular and it was like being part of an extended family. My boys - both of them small, had an absolute ball in the swimming pool and gardens and it was just a fantastic, relaxed stay, not once did I feel they were being a nuisance, as is sometimes the case in 'up market' B&B's. It is also close enough to Hermanus without being in the middle of 'high tourist' country with really good restaurants just up the road, if you didn’t feel like going into Hermanus. A really great place, good service, friendly helpful staff and good food. I would really recommend Sandbaai to anyone - including families."

They make sure that your every need is met but at the same time manage to stay in the background so that you don't have people breathing down your neck! The rooms are certainly 5-star and the under floor heating makes a big difference when the Hermanus chill sets in. Breakfast was freshly made with plenty of choices. This is a place where you can go to put your feet up and just go aaahh!

"Kinley Holiday in South Africa"

(United Kingdom) Mr Kinley | 5 March 2007

"We had a wonderful short stay and wished we had booked for longer. A great situation and very good facilities. Reception and staff very kind and warm. All in all the best we had in South Africa."

"Sandbaai Country House is a sophisticated and well managed enterprise, with spacious, first class rooms and public facilities that match its upmarket price tag. We were given a cordial welcome and shown into a large room facing the sea front just 40 metres away. Room service promptly brought us tea and cakes and an opportunity to chat with our hostess about facilities in the area, including restaurants for our evening meal.

The dining room and accompanying bar and lounge are all well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, with more than an adequate choice of dishes. Both host and hostess were friendly and helpful and anxious to ensure we had an enjoyable stay.

Sandbaai Country House has amenities more appropriate to a private hotel than a guest house and we enjoyed an extremely comfortable stay there. Highly recommended."


"Sandbaai Country Lodge"

(South Africa) Mr Wessels | 13 September 2006

"Excellent rooms, good friendly service
and the breakfast was
great
We asked to have a brunch on Sunday
and it was offered without any resistance.
Great place for a weekend get away "
