Accommodation rating: Luxury
Located high on the cliffs of Hermanus, overlooking the whale watchers paradise of Walker Bay, only an hour and a half drive from Cape Town, Birkenhead House is named after a British troop ship that sank in Walker Bay in 1852. The house offers the utmost luxury for the discerning traveller wanting to stay in one of South Africa's ultimate coastal retreats. Decorated to reflect the beauty of its natural setting, guest areas are adorned with rare maritime antiques.
All eleven opulently appointed suites have been decorated in soft earthy tones and offer expansive vistas of Walker Bay. Due to the size of the property exclusive use can be arranged if required. Other amenities within the property include a library, a gym and steam room and a dual-level swimming pool located in a sheltered courtyard. Hermanus' best two swimming beaches are just a stone's throw away and the Birkenhead House Spa offers an array of aromatherapy and reflexology treatments. At Birkenhead House world-class cuisine is a matter of course, where sumptuous breakfasts, lavish lunches and seafood delicacies are served daily.
