"Wheelchair accessible accommodation"

On The Vermont Guest House reviewer rating

Jan & Pauli, Thank you for providing most enjoyable wheelchair accessible accommodation to us this weekend. The room was perfect, the food was wonderful, and your hospitality was great! We would have loved to have stayed longer, maybe next time. It is always a pleasure to meet people who understand the importance of providing wheelchair accessible accommodation. Even though this is the 21st century it is still rare to find, and therefore appreciated by travellers such as ourselves. Please keep up the good work! P.S. . . . Please say “Hi” to Roxy!

"A really local experience"

On The Vermont Guest House reviewer rating

On the Vermont Guest House is a quiet bed & breakfast with four guest rooms just outside of the main town of Hermanus. Near to beaches and wineries, it’s a great location if you have rented a car to drive to attractions and restaurants. The owners, Jan & Pauli, are two of the sweetest people in South Africa and they take excellent care of their guests, especially at breakfast. They serve up a massive homemade feast with so many choices, you couldn’t possibly try every dish in one sitting! They’re also enthusiastic concierges, too, so I didn’t need to crack a guidebook – Jan & Pauli filled me on on everything I needed to know about the area, from history to great restaurants in town to the best value whale watching cruises. If you want a really local experience, definitely check out On the Vermont.
