Unvergesslich bleiben für uns die Erinnerungen in Hermanus: An unserem Abreisetag von Ihnen haben wir unzählige Wale sehen können, die sich in der Bucht getummelt haben. Atemberaubend schön! Beeindruckend waren auch unsere Naturerlebnisse im Addo Elephant Park, wo wir Elefanten, Löwen, Zebras und unzählige weitere Tiere in der freien Wildbahn beobachten konnten. Herzlichen Dank noch einmal für das schöne und gastfreundliche Domizil bei Ihnen!

Thank you for your support and hospitality and flexibility. Your extra care and consideration gratefully helped my return to good health after leaving hospital. The lift, food, newspapers, advice, too many things to mention. We will recommend you to others.

'n Wonderlike ervaring, fantastiese gasvryheid en baie rolstoelvriendelik. Die kamer is baie geskik vir gestremdes en 'n wonderlike uitsig oor die see.
Johan Lubbe, May 2012

What a wonderful place we have been, lovely people. Food is very marvellous and wonderful. Thank you very much.

Check out travel writer Angie Orth's review of On The Vermont Guest House:
"The owners, Jan & Pauli, are two of the sweetest people in South Africa and they take excellent care of their guests, especially at breakfast. They serve up a massive homemade feast with so many choices, you couldn’t possibly try every dish in one sitting! They’re also enthusiastic concierges, too, so I didn’t need to crack a guidebook – Jan & Pauli filled me on on everything I needed to know about the area, from history to great restaurants in town to the best value whale watching cruises. And they were sweet enough to drop me off in town a few times and to take me to church with them. If you want a really local experience, definitely check out On the Vermont." Check out her blog

Dag beste familie Roodbol,

Zeer bedankt voor de onverwachte kerstgroet van jullie, we hebben een goede herinnering aan het verblijf in jullie guesthouse.

Nog bedankt voor jullie goede tip om de Fernkloof te bezoeken, we hebben er een schitterende wandeling gemaakt en wat een mooie uitzichten op Hermanus, we hadden dit bezoek niet willen missen.

Onze gehele reis door Zuid Afrika en Swaziland is trouwens een groot succes geweest, we hebben enorm genoten van de prachtige natuur en de vriendelijkheid van de mensen, we hebben ons geen moment onveilig gevoeld in die 30 dagen. We hebben Zuid Afrika in ons hart gesloten en willen er spoedig weer terug komen.

Nogmaals dank en vanuit Nederland ook de beste wensen voor u voor een gezond en gelukkig 2011

Hartelijke groet

Rinus Manders en reisgenoten, September 2010



Jan & Pauli, Thank you for providing most enjoyable wheelchair accessible accommodation to us this weekend. The room was perfect, the food was wonderful, and your hospitality was great! We would have loved to have stayed longer, maybe next time.

It is always a pleasure to meet people who understand the importance of providing wheelchair accessible accommodation. Even though this is the 21st century it is still rare to find, and therefore appreciated by travellers such as ourselves. Please keep up the good work! P.S. . . . Please say “Hi” to Roxy!

Dad and I would like to say thank you so much for a superb stay at your special guesthouse, On The Vermont. We both agreed we could not have done better WRT our accommodation. Your whole guesthouse exudes such style, not to mention comfort. I slept so well at On The Vermont – cosy, light duvet and cooling ceiling fan! Your breakfast is unsurpassed – just a pity we could not eat in one meal the great variety on offer. You were both the perfect hosts – there when we needed you but giving us our privacy when we needed that. We will be back! And certainly look forward to it.
Annabel Eaton, December 2009



Thank you both so much for a wonderful stay in Hermanus. You were very hospitable and we enjoyed every moment. It was particularly kind of you to provide us with sandwiches for breakfast on our last morning. We were very hungry by the time we reached the airport, so we found them especially delicious!

We hope that you had a good time with your family visiting and look forward to seeing you again one day. In the meantime, we will pass on your details to others in the High Commission in case they get the chance to visit you.
Philip, Kasia, Lily and Jack Parham, British High Commissioner in Tanzania, August 2008



Wonderful hospitality, wonderful breakfast. Would love to stay longer if we had the time.
Slade Family, Scotland, December 2007

Wij hebben het heel fijn gehad! En wat een verrassing: de oliebollen en appelflappen!
Fam Kelderman, Dalfse, The Netherlands, 31 December 2007.

Ons gesin het heerlik hier geëet en geslaap. Dankie vir die gasvryheid!
M. Claassen, Moembaai, December 2007

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt - gerne kommen wir wieder.
Thomas Wyschkon, Germany, November 2007

Excellent facilities for wheelchair, beautiful breakfast and hospitality. Wonderful hosts, thank you!"

SERVICE with capital letters:: Very comfortable guest house with a lot of service provided by the owners; the most elaborate breakfast we had during our trip in South Africa.
Maarten en Henny van der Zwan, Helmond, The Netherlands, September 2007.

We spent 2 wonderful nights in On the Vermont Guesthouse in Hermanus. It was clean, comfortable and well looked after. The breakfast was something else - it has to be experienced. Both mornings we found ourselves sitting for more than 2 hours, enjoying the excellent food and company. On the Vermont is a guesthouse which we would recommend to all our friends, and certainly return there ourselves if we are in Hermanus again.
John Tallo, Aberdeen, October 2006.

Excellent B+B in Hermanus:: Wonderful hosts, really excellent breakfasts, will definitely stay there again when we return to Hermanus.
Nick van der Walt, Cape Town, October 2005.
