Luxury travel to South Africa must include a trip to the town of Hermanus near Cape Town, and an overnight stay (at least!) at Ocean Eleven Luxury Guest House. The Ocean Eleven Luxury Guest House is situated on the Cape South coast of South Africa, in the quaint coastal town of Hermanus on Walker Bay. Although the Hermanus village is small, it has a city-like infrastructure and, having been a popular coastal holiday destination for over a hundred years, there are a myriad of things to see and do. Not only does Hermanus offer the best land-based whale viewing in the world, with guests of Ocean Eleven being able to watch these creatures from the comfort of their suite, but our “Champagne Air” is also believed to have restorative qualities and many travel to this coastal town for recuperation and wellness. When visiting Hermanus, a host of adventures await you, from sea kayaking and paragliding to great white shark diving. The Hermanus golf club offers world class golfing and if this is not enough the famous Arabella golf course is but minutes away. The pristine beaches, charming village shops, variety of restaurants, cliff paths and nature reserve, all nestled between an incandescent mountain range and the spectacular Atlantic Ocean; make Hermanus the perfect destination for a coastal holiday.

Hermanus is a beautiful 90 minute drive from Cape Town making it an easily accessible short-stay destination and should be included on any travel itinerary to Cape Town or South Africa. Ocean Eleven offers guests luxury accommodation in Hermanus right on the cliff paths overlooking the ocean. Our colonial style luxury guest house exudes the grace and style befitting a destination which has the reputation of being the “Riviera of the South.” We look forward to welcoming you as a guest and treating you to a good dose of absolute luxury.

Ocean Eleven is a Cape Cod, Colonial style luxury guest house, situated on the famous cliffs of Hermanus. The picturesque mountains beyond gently embrace the phenomenal, all encompassing vista of Walker Bay. In keeping with the utter elegance of Colonial architecture, the Ocean Eleven main house was built with high ceilings, tall windows and teak floors, all features – and thus the grace and style – have been retained to this day.

Ocean Eleven Luxury Guest House boasts ten beautifully appointed rooms made up of three standard, five deluxe and two suites, each with an all-embracing sea view over Walker Bay.
