Beautifully decorated and perfect little place to stay. The couple that ran the place went above and beyond and their hospitality was 1st rate. Could not recommend the place highly enough. The helped us with everything we wanted to do and were more than happy to book things for us: Also the breakfast was absolutely delicious.

I stayed at the Bamboo Guest House for a few nights in March 2016 and it was just what the Dr ordered. The house is beautifully furnished and has everything you need. The staff were uber friendly and welcoming. Great location and I will definitely be back!

Teresa and Francois made us feel welcome and always attended to our restaurant bookings as the easter period is very busy. The breakfasts are also very good. Overall a very pleasant stay and would...

The apartment certainly has one of the best positions in Hermanus. The views offered by the apartment are further complimented with a beautifully designed interior. There is plenty of space and our party of six people (four adults/two children) were easily accommodated.
