What a great stay! We will be back :)
Firstly, the owners are amazing! Extremely friendly and helpful. As a bonus, we ended up getting the family suite, which was fully equipped with everything we could possibly need. Breakfast was delicious and the location was great. I can't wait to return there again :)

Fabulous experience
Charlise was a wonderful host, welcoming us warmly when we arrived late in the evening, and helped us with planning our next day, booking us on a sunrise whale watching tour (which proved to be a wonderful experience) despite the late hour. She continued to help with ideas and suggestions for the rest of the visit.
The guesthouse itself is located in a quiet location, very close to the shoreline, and is decorated in a lovely way.
Breakfast was special and delicious.
We would definitely come back.

We stayed at Mountain View Manor from 5-7 October 18. Nestled in the heart of a residential area, this establishment is splendid with awesome views of the mountain and the ocean. It is like home away from home. The beach is walking distance from the Manor and Hermanus CBD is a short drive away. We were fortunate to see a few whales jumping in the ocean.
The Manor is very peaceful and you are guaranteed a good nights rest. Breakfast is delicious and special dietary needs are catered for.
The hosts Geoff and Charlize are simply amazing, they are friendly and professionals in the hospitality industry. After checking out, both hosts conversed with us for a while despite having other duties to attend to. Geoff and Charlize will make your stay at the Manor very special, trust me on this.
I highly recommend this establishment and hope to visit again in the future.

The reception was warm and welcoming, including recommendations for sleep arrangements, restaurants and recommended observation points. Rooms are spacious, well-equipped and have high-quality beds. Breakfast was excellent, the landlady accepted most of our demands. Before leaving we were equipped with printed information on the way to Cape Town and recommended areas for further experiences

Every encounter and aspect of Mountain View Manor proved that they truly love people and their business: breakfasts especially prepared for each individual, tastefully designed custom made furniture....the list can continue!”

Hello dear Charlise and dear Nadia,

we are now in the 2nd.week back from our trip to South Africa and haven't been asked to submit a feedback to our time in your B&B.
Maybe, that the 5 star rating the agencies normaly offer, is not sufficient to to the service you provide.

However, Edeltraud and myself wouldn't sleep well for the rest of our life if we would not make a clear statement to your hospitality.

Both, the quality standard of your house and your politness towards us was outstanding and way above every other B&B we had during our trip.
We keep it in our memory as highlight beside the beauty of the landscape of Mossel Bay and Hermanus.

I think, you both could top the satisfaction of your guests when you recommend your B&B in Hermanus.
No add on a website could do it better than you!!!!!

One comment towards Charlise must be allowed: I had the strong believe, that I'm the master for egg varieties all over the world . But you demonstraded, that
my mastership is limited to the northern hemisphere of our world - but I'll fight to come close.

Now we are back in Germany and 'enjoy' days of rain - just miserable - and we wish we could send you some of the badly needed water.

Thank you once more for the days we had in your houses. We will remember also the beautyful country and the friendly people far away from us.

All the best for you and your country!!!!

With best regards,

Erich with Edeltraud

“The extremely friendly and helpful hosts who went the extra mile to make our stay perfect. The place was immaculate and well placed for walks along the beach and also enjoy the amazing flowers and birds (before breakfast) in the adjacent fynbos. (The nearby Belmont lake had flamingos only 10m away.) A quiet and peaceful area for a lazy stay yet only a 2min drive to a supermarket or 10mins to the town centre. Dinner was outstanding due to the professional chef/host.”

- Roy


“The location is fantastic. Breakfast every morning is sumptuous and extraordinary for a B&B. Charlise & hubby are so welcoming and helpful.”

- Edna


“Charlise and Geoff are just the loveliest and most friendly couple you will ever meet. They took us flamingo watching and even went to the pharmacy for us when we were sick. They have such a positive vibe! Thanks a million!”

I would like to express my experience when myself and my partner visited your place on weekend of 10-12 March 2017. What a warm welcome!!! We had a quiet and peaceful stay, the food was delicious, your kindness, your rooms, cleanliness. It was wooooow!!!! I must say. My partner could not shut up on our way back to Cape Town.

Mountain View Manor is a delightful place to stay at. You are made to feel welcome the minute you walk in the door and their policy of "arrive as a guest and leave as a friend" is absolutely true. The decor is beautiful and Charlise and Geoff take great pride in their home and property. Charlise makes the most divine breakfast and it is definitely made with passion and love. Geoffis so wonderful in giving you details on places to go site seeing and believe me, take his advice!!! We loved our stay with Charlise and Geoff and would recommend their manor to anyone. Thank you both for an amazing time and for making us feel so welcome and definitely friends!

Die verblyf tussen 28/02 en 02/03/2014 hier by julle, was een onvergeetlike ervaring.Ek kan nie beskryf hoe ongelooflik lekker ons gekuier en dit terdee geniet het nie.Dit was AMAZING!Ons verblyf was bietjie kort, maar glo my, volgende keer vertoef ons langer.Dis 'n uitgemaak saak!...Ons sal terugkeer, keer op keer!

Die ontbyt is uit die boonste rakke!Die beddens slaap so lekker, ons het soos Lords gevoel...hiehie.Nie eens te praat van die bad nie...Wow!, total relaxation.That is an understatement, glo my.'n Mens moet dit ervaar om dit te besef.

Ons het gekom om te ontspan en breek weg van die huis te vat.So die regte besluit gewees!Gaan ontspanne huis toe...hiehie.Die stilte en rustigheid was onvergeetlik.Al wat jy hoor, is die geruis van branders wat oor en oor slaan...AWESOME!

Jul leuse is: Arrive as strangers, leave as friends.Jul doen jul naam gestand hoor, want dit is hoe ons dit ervaar het...Friends forever!

Karli het so lekker met jul honde, Diego en Bubbles, gespeel.

In my boeke was die ervaring, tesame met die verblyf, 'n allemintige 10 uit 10!...BIG THUMPS UP!!!!;-)

Warm, Fussy, Feelings. One day in and it's feeling like home. Creativity booms and a lightness of being takes over when these incredible hosts, Geoff and Charlise do what they do. The human element to hospitality. To thrive is an inevitability in this home. Thank you for sharing. Peace, love & hugs.

Exceeds expectations

Behind its unprepossessing facebrick facade lies one of the most remarkable guesthouses we've encountered. It simply exceeds expectations and grows on you the more you discover. It's filled with whimsy and humour, without losing sight of what guests really want - great beds, a relaxing and comfortable environment, and a memorable stay. It's not a "home away from home" (but is that what one really goes away for?), it's better than home! Just the DVDs and the books will make you want to stay longer.

Geoff and Charlise are warm hosts, and highly-competent hospitality professionalists. Breakfast was an 'occasion', a talking point, which will be remembered for a long time. For starters, that's one area which sets Mountain View Manor apart from other establishments. But it was Charlise running out the the car when we set off to explore the area... with "padkos"! Beautifully packaged and wrapped, with forks, Carrot Cake she had just baked. It was the best Carrot Cake we've ever had!

Sandbaai is sometimes regarded as a poor cousin to Hermanus proper, but we found it delightful. It's an area on the up. Mountain View Manor is a short walk from the beach, both sandy areas and fascinating rock pools, and vistas up and down the coast and back to the mountain. There is a 10-minute (wheelchair-friendly) coastal walk to Onrus beach where Geoff had recommended the Beach Bistro. No crowds for a long weekend Sunday lunch, but a great vibe and the best burger (R40) we've ever had. And great service. Right on the beach.

It's easy to recommend this establishment very highly, knowing that Geoff and Charlise will go out of their way to make your stay memorable.

We are not just giving a 5 star rating for the sake of it. Really this is a beautiful place and well maintained. Our room had a stunning view of the mountain. Breakfast was very nice and filling. The hosts were very friendly and a fountain of knowledge. They have an overdose of friendliness. Was a great stay. The Cherry on the top was to receive a gift. Was indeed very good.
