Awesome stay.

We had a wonderful, relaxing 2 days. What a nice welcome and cold drinks on arrival by a lovely lady. It was a lovely unit with everything you needed. Hearing and seeing the waves was fantastic. Thanks to Annamarie and David for a lovely stay.

Die naweek daar was perfek. Ons love die woonstel.

Die plek is perfek vir 4 persone en beskik oor alles wat jy benodig. Jy kan die see sien en hoor en net rustig voel. Die WiFi en inverter was 'n groot plus. Die woonstel is in 'n sekuriteitskompleks en alles is baie netjies en jy sal veilig voel. Thank you, Dave and Annemarie.

Most enjoyable stay in a long while.

I took a group of 7 ladies for a spiritual retreat and the surroundings, landscaping and magnificent views added greatly to the success of our venture, I am very impressed at the quality of the accommodation and found only one tiny flaw. Because of my age, I was unable to get into the bath, (the shore is inside the bath). The owner Dave told me next time to ask him for a step stool.

Ons het lekker gebly, maar die ligging van die eenheid is nie wenslik nie.

Die eenheid en kompleks is redelik gemiddeld en voldoen aan die vereiste, maar toegang tot die kompleks is deur 'n ietwat industriële gebied en tussen die perlemoenfabrieke. Die ligging is minder as wenslik.

Perfect holiday destination.

The apartment was so well equipped and the host thought about everything including an extension cord so the hair dryer could reach the plug! The only downside is that the complex is situated in an industrial area, but it’s very close to the mall and Hermanus.

Hi Craig, yes it was a pity there was no electricity. It wasn't just at the apartment that had a power outage but in the entire town for more than 30 hours due to a major fire in Hermanus and the Overberg. Fortunately, we only lost power, even if it was for over a day. Some people lost their homes, businesses and even their lives. Some things are just out of The Potting Shed control.

The beach is close and it's very safe.

It's an excellent place for family to enjoy the safe environment and be close to the sea. A very relaxing and peaceful place to recharge your batteries.

Apartment was clean and tidy, but is far from Hermanus' eating places and events. According to the owner, the footpath is also not safe to walk on. Furthermore, resort was very clean and quiet.

The Potting Shed didn't want us to stay in the apartment at first when they found out we were 4 adults and one baby. We were expected to cancel because we didn't mention we had a baby. There is no place on the website to indicate that we are traveling with a baby. The problem was sorted out with Annemarie from Potting Shed. The apartment is very clean and tidy, but the location is poor. It's next to the harbor and safety outside the resort is a problem. We were told not to walk on the paths by the sea. Everything in the apartment was up to standard, except the shower which makes terrible noise when you use it and also the pots are in very bad condition.

Die verblyf is in 'n pragtige omgewing en mens kan die see hoor vanuit die eenheid. Kompleks is baie veilig en netjies.

Ek was verbaas met die waarde vir geld. Potting Shed is pragtig ingerig en op standaard. Ek sal egter voorstel dat daar na die moontlikheid van waaiers of lugverkoeling gekyk word. Die yskas in eenheid 23 was ook nie in goeie werkende toestand nie. Andersins was alles puik. Diens ook uitstekend.

The accommodation is in a beautiful setting and one can hear the sea from the unit. Complex is very safe and tidy.

I was surprised with the value for money. Potting Shed is beautifully furnished and up to standard. However, I would suggest looking into the possibility of fans or air cooling. The fridge in unit 23 was also not in good working order. Otherwise everything was great. Excellent service too.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay in this neat and well equipped apartment.

The apartment is well equipped, has a lovely nautical theme with quality bedding. It was super clean with nice views of the sea. The complex is quiet and well maintained. The damage to the geyser cupboard (from the leak in the upstairs unit) was a pity as it created a damp smell in the second bedroom, but once this has been sorted out, and the geyser safety valve checked for compliance, the unit will be on our list of highly recommended accommodation. Annemarie was very helpful in booking tours and advising us on activities in Hermanus.

'n Baie aangename ervaring.

Ons is as gesin baie vriendelik ontvang. Die personeel het ons ingelig van dinge om te doen in die omgewing en restaurante om te besoek. Die blykplek self het ons verras. Skoon, netjies en veilig. Definitief 'n 'thumbs up' vir The Potting Shed.

Our stay was pleasant. The surrounding area is a bit dodgy, but the location on the rocks made up for that.

The unit is spacious and well equipped. We appreciated the trouble they have gone to to warm the unit during winter times - wall heaters, hot water bottles and extra bedding. The TV reception needs attention. Our stay was very pleasant and I can recommend it to other travelers.

We are sorry to hear that you thought the area was unsafe Rina. The surrounding area that is close by is the Abagold farm, a conservation centre for endangered perlemoen that is being poached from the sea. The apartments are part of a complex with 24-hour security which is quite a common thing in South Africa, therefore an extremely safe place to stay. I'm glad you would still recommend our place to others. The view from the rocks and sound of the sea is amazing. We investigated the TV reception and have had a new decoder installed today.

Hope to see you another time,
Annamarie

Relaxing.

We stayed at the potting shed apartment on the beach and it was truly an amazing stay. Very peaceful and totally safe, even late at night when we went to relax on the rocks we felt super safe. We will definitely recommend this and will visit again soon.

Lekker gebly in mooi omgewing.

Ons reis het 17 ure geduur en ons was baie moeg. Ons moes deur die nag reis as gevolg van ons werksure. Dit het veroorsaak dat ons vroerë aangekom het en boonop nog 4 ure in ons kar moes spandeer. Dit was onmenslik ongemaklik.

Nice stay in stunning area.

Our journey took 17 hours and we were very tired. We had to travel through the night due to our working hours. Therefore we arrived much earlier and had to spend another 4 hours in our car. It was really uncomfortable.

Sorry you were so tired after your long journey, but when you made the reservation you were notified that our check in time is from 2.00pm. You arrived at 9.00am and guests had not even checked out. The apartments need time to be cleaned when guests have departed - hence the 2.00pm check in time. Check out time is 10.30. Guests were still in the apartment when you arrived.

Hello Elzette,
I'm sorry you felt the kitchen needs to be upgraded. Eighteen months ago we put a new kitchen in. I'm not understanding why you think it needs updating. The curtains are purely for decoration/interior design purpose. We have fitted blinds in all rooms, intended for blocking light and privacy. Perhaps if you email me direct we can discuss the matter in more details.
Kind regards,

Ons het baie lekker gebly!

Die woonstel was skoon en oulik uitgelê met 'n uitsig oor die see. Loopafstand van die see en as ons die deur oopgemaak het, kon jy die see hoor. Ons was mal oor die woonstel en als was daar wat ons nodig gehad het. Ons sal definitief weer The Potting Shed gebruik.
