Birkenhead House

The ultimate beach house, setting the standard for luxury

11 Rooms

£££

A scenic 90 min drive from Cape Town

Exhilarating cliff-top position overlooking the world-famous whale watching paradise of Walker Bay.

Perched high on the cliffs of Hermanus, overlooking Walker Bay and the Overberg mountains, Birkenhead House is a wonderful coastal retreat, offering luxurious accommodation in an exclusive coastal setting. Birkenhead House is the perfect destination for those seeking a luxury break by the sea. Hermanus' best swimming beaches, are just a stone's throw away from Birkenhead House, and spectacular mountain trails and breath-taking cliff path walks are within easy reach. From May to December Southern Right Whales enter the sheltered waters to calve.

There are eleven sumptuous sea facing suites with wonderful sea views. The hotel’s contemporary décor is an artful mix of beach-house and quirky opulence. We love that the 11 rooms at Birkenhead House are individually decorated by the stylish wand of owner Liz Biden. The rooms are actually in three different houses which make up Birkenhead House. Most have a private balcony. The honeymoon suite has a private pool. Unwind with the extensive menu of in-house spa treatments offered.

The all-inclusive rate means that guests never need to leave the comfort of Birkenhead House, where all meals and drinks are included. However, for the more adventurous, Hermanus offers activities aplenty including whale watching, shark cage diving, golf, horse riding on the beach, hiking, surfing, mussel picking and even wine tasting. The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley is just a short drive away and is one of South Africa’s premier wine routes specialising in cool climate Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs.
