Decorated in a relaxed nautical style, Waterways is a charming family holiday home set on a 30-acre protea farm right on the Hermanus lagoon. When you book Waterways, you have the entire farm to yourself – a place so picturesque and peaceful, you won't want to leave. But located between Hermanus and Stanford, it's perfectly positioned to explore all the restaurants, wine farms, markets, beaches, coastal paths, mountain hikes and scenic surroundings. For more information, visit our website.

The space
Descend the winding driveway through 30 acres of Fynbos to arrive at green lawns running down to a moody lagoon. Waterways stands proudly in front of a formidable mountain backdrop. It's a setting that has to be seen to be believed... a private paradise you'll never want to leave.

Waterways has been built as a holiday home with most of the bedrooms either in separate cottages or with separate entrances, so guests can have plenty of privacy from each other. Some of the rooms are grouped in two's for family units.

Adults can enjoy the large swimming pool on the front lawn, while little ones can play in the fountain in the enclosed back garden. There are also several entertainment areas for both summer and winter to experience the tranquil and scenic surroundings at their best.

Where you’ll be

Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa

With the lagoon on your front doorstep and the mountain in your backyard, Waterways is an adventure-seeker's playground. Further afield, you can choose from adrenalin sports such as kite-surfing and paragliding to more relaxing past-times such as birdwatching and winetasting. During the spring months, Hermanus is one of the best spots in the world for whale-watching and Gaansbaai, a 30-minute drive, is the premier location in the Cape for shark-cage diving.

I love travelling and discovering hidden gems. As a keen traveller, I understand what guests want from an Airbnb property. A seamless experience that makes travelling easy. A home away from home with all your comforts. Fast Wi-Fi, someone on hand to answer your questions, and a quick response should you need assistance.

I host two homes that couldn't be more different – a cosy one-bedroom flat in the heart of London and a 7-bedroom holiday home on a 30-acre farm in South Africa – but these requirements never vary. I always go the extra mile for my guests and I wear my Superhost badge with pride.

Waterways on the Hermanus lagoon is truly a hidden gem that is waiting to be discovered. Guests can be assured that our dedicated property manager, Dave, will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and offer any help you may need.

My flat in Paddington has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and every convenience has been carefully considered. I have an experienced team on hand to help with cleaning, maintenance and emergencies.
