Welcome to Hermanus and Sixteen Guesthouse on Main.

Nestled between the mountains and the sea, we are located a mere 5-minute walk from the town centre and the spectacular Walker Bay seafront. We are conveniently situated between the Blue Flag Grotto beach and the Hemel-en-Aarde valley wine route.

We look forward to you enjoying a comfortable stay in one of our individually decorated en-suite rooms or self catering unit in our little corner of paradise in the Overberg.

We offer 5 en-suite units which are spacious and stylishly decorated.  The units all face the garden with an inviting pool.  Also on the premises is safe parking and vintage bicycles to use for free. 

Units can be booked individually, but are also ideal for groups, families or couples retreats.

Newly added to our portfolio is a stunning retro self catering unit in the apartment block across the street from the guesthouse (not on the same property!).

  • Expectations exceeded

    Our expectations were far exceeded in every respect: from the first wave upon arrival to the farewell greeting, we felt welcome and even a bit "at home". Very tastefully furnished, great beds, high quality throughout, super clean and excellent value for money. The (optional) breakfast is awesome! All around TOP!

    The Sixteen Guesthouse on Main was a lovely property, with 5 fully equipped suites, including a small living room, large bedroom and fully stocked bathroom with shower and tub. The property included large double doors to increase airflow, an exit to the pool with lounge chairs, and chairs directly outside each room. It was easy walking distance to downtown Hermanus either via Main Street (approximately a 10 min walk)... Read this review
