Avalon on Sea is within easy walking distance from the centre of Hermanus, allowing our visitors to leave their car in the secure carpark and walk to most of the attractions of Hermanus. The House is situated directly on the world famous "Cliff Path", stretching from the New Harbour in the West all the way to Grotto Beach in the East, a total distance of about 12km. This offers our guests an easy walk through some of the most breathtaking scenery.
During the Whale season (July to December) the position of the Guesthouse is ideal for Whale watching, as the Whales can sometimes be observed as close as 20m from the rocks. The Whales come into the protected waters of Walker Bay to give birth and to nurse their young until they are strong enough to return to the colder Antarctic waters.
Healthy breakfasts are served daily, with a selection of fruit, home baked muffins or croissants, joghurts and juices, followed by a full English breakfast or a Continental platter. A variety of Teas and Coffee is also on offer.
All our rooms are equipped with television, Tea and Coffee facility, fan and heater, safe deposit box, radio alarm clock, hairdryer and most of the rooms have a barfridge to keep your refreshments cool.
