You have got this just right. What an amazing setting. It feels like home away from home and is total luxury and decadence. We will return.

Of wine and whale song - Dec 2009

Every year whales come to wallow in the warm waters of Walker Bay in Hermanus. Sitting atop the cliffs of this sheltered sanctuary is the magnificent Birkenhead House, an open-plan beachside private hotel, offering the discerning traveller expansive views of the ocean and the far-flung heights of the Overberg mountains.

Whale song at sunset - Dec 2010

Standing on the raised deck at Birkenhead Villa is like being transported on board a luxury superyacht. The sleek, streamlined exterior gives way to an understated yet seductive interior elegance. Smooth marble, cool steel and soft chinoiserie provide an ultrachic environment in which to savour the million-dollar views of Walker Bay and the entire grand backdrop of the Overberg mountains.
