Perlemoen - Self Catering Holiday House & Cottage

'We had a 2 night stay at Perlemoen Holiday House towards the end of our 3 week trip to South Africa. Using the SA-Venues web site we were impressed by the photos and the guest reviews but neither prepared us for the house and the welcome. The house was enormous, the welcome from Suzette was really nice and friendly and the location of the house was excellent. We soon realised that we were really pleased that we were not staying in large town of Hermanus but in the smaller settlement of Onrus.

The ocean is just a 100 metres away and the excellent Milkwood restaurant less than 10 minutes walk down the road. We drove into Hermanus several times to see whales but just along the A43 from Onrus is the beautiful Rotary Way scenic drive and the R320 towards Caledon along the Hemel en Aarde Valley where some very good wine is produced. We would recommend taking a drive along both of these roads. At the junction of the A43 and the R320 is the Wine Village which has a fantastic selection of South African wines and particularly good examples from the valley.

Suzette is a very helpful and welcoming person and she has created a house that is full of interesting pictures and books so it feels more like staying in friend’s home rather than rented accommodation.

Perlemoen was certainly one the best places we stayed at in South Africa and we would recommend it without hesitation. It might be of particular interest to a large group as the whole house and adjoining cottage can easily accommodate a lot of people but for just us 2 it still felt very compact and homey.'

'We have much enjoyed our visit to such a comfortable house, well furnished with all we needed. It was very nice to be able to walk to the beach and lagoon nearby. All round enjoyable visit to Onrus, with the nearby mountains to view as well. Enjoyed using the chess set! 5 Days here was not long enough!'
