Guest house in Hermanus on offer

A guest house in Hermanus which fronts directly onto the old 16th green of the Hermanus Golf Course, has come on to the market.

"From the Pebble Beach guest house's backyard a pathway leads you deep into the Fernkloof Nature Reserve and its world famous indigenous fynbos. Skirt around the golf course to the Atlantic Ocean for a stroll along the cliff paths. Here you will discover why Hermanus offers the best land-based whale watching in the world," says Colleen Seabell, who heads Seeff's guest house division.

Pebble Beach started trading in December 2004 and has its own website (including direct and automated booking and payment facility), and is listed on 13 accommodation web-sites, published in Greenwood Guide and the SA Golf Directory, and marketed by 15 tour operators.

"Bookings commenced with tour operators in September 2005 and initially represented approximately 80% of turnover, dropping to approximately 50% of turnover as a result of repeat business and direct bookings. The establishment has recently been marketed to numerous golf tour and shark cage diving operators, and this is bearing fruit. Pebble Beach also has preferential agreements with the Hermanus Golf Club and whale tour operators, is officially approved by the Hermanus local authority and signposted from the main road."

Priced at R5,7m excluding VAT, the residence consists of two lounges each with a fireplace; six bedrooms all en suite, plus a manager's suite, each with wrap-around balconies; large designer kitchen with imported hardwood tops; open-plan office; laundry room; double garage; stone-clad baths and slate floors. All of the bedrooms and reception areas have French doors opening out onto their own balcony.

The entire residence has golf course or mountain views. Each room is equipped with satellite TV and bar fridge plus wireless internet. Guests have access to the swimming pool. There is paved off-street parking for five cars in a secure area with a remote-controlled gate as well as two street parking areas.

Other guest houses that she currently has on her books include a large Cape Dutch-style in Somerset West at R15m, a backpackers in Kommetjie at R2,8m, a restaurant and guesthouse in Greyton at R4,7m, an eight-bedroom African style guest house in Durbanville at R4,3m and a twelve-bed guest house in Sea Point with ocean views at R10m.
