Protea Escape

This is a perfect home on the Onrus Island for a family holiday. Only a 100 meter's walk to the beautiful white sands on Onrus beach and the Onrus River estuary, I'm proud to present one of very few original holiday homes remaining on the peninsula. We have retained the simple mid-century retro feel of this unique characterful cottage, situated on this quiet cul-de-sac. We have recently converted the garage into a spacious separate flatlet, offering it's own entrance and en-suite bathroom, providing ideal extra space and privacy.

Onrus is a short drive away from the wineries and a number of quality shops and boutiques as well as the new Whale Coast Mall which allows those who wish to shop or purchase a gift to remember Hermanus by. A number of local markets, child-friendly and/or up-market, provides fresh produce and
local eats and drinks of exceptional quality.

This home consists of an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area. There are 3 bedrooms inside and a full bathroom. Two bedrooms have double beds and third bedroom as 2 single beds. The flatlet has a double bed and a bathroom. Outside in the garden there is a built in braai/BBQ and a Boma braai. There is safe off street parking for at least 3 vehicles.

  • A once off cleaning and laundry fee of R 800.00 is due regardless of the length of stay.
  • A breakages deposit of R 2000.00 is due which is refundable should there be no breakages or damages.
  • Strictly no smoking inside the house (R1000 penalty will be charged). You are welcome to use the outside areas to smoke.
