The seaside town of Hermanus, on Walker Bay, lies a comfortable two-hour drive from Cape Town along the scenic N2 highway, 90 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and an hour from Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa.
One of South Africa’s favourite holiday and retirement spots, Hermanus, with a Mediterranean climate, offers the best land-based whale-watching anywhere in the world. A cliff path, stretching from the one side of the town to the other, hugs the coastline for about 12 km allowing whale watchers to get within 20 m of the gentle giants in the coves below! Telescopes situated alongside the Old Harbour Museum makes it possible to survey the entire Walker Bay and the whales and dolphins at close range.
Hermanus is also the only town in the world to boast an official Whale Crier whose role is to keep visitors informed as to the whereabouts of the whales as he does his rounds through town every day. The sound of his kelp horn has become a unique part of the charm of this seaside resort during the whale season.
Within the charming ambiance and champagne air of Hermanus lies the Mariner’s Village Lifestyle Estate, an affordably priced, large residential security complex with a 24-hr manned gate and nightly patrols. The estate was launched in 2005 on a 14-hectare site in Westcliff, it is within walking distance of the New Harbour and the spectacular cliff path walkways with the sound of waves braking at certain times of the day. The development comprises 165 freehold stands; – +- one third which are still vacant erfs (and maybe for sale from owners), the freehold houses vary in is size, from 120 and 400 square meters, and a sectional title complex known as the Golden Hind consisting of 30 units which include 6 lofts.
The developers are also planning a retirement segment within the walled area of Mariners Village and will form an integral part of Mariners Village Lifestyle Estate and will have between 180 and 273 units, including a frail care centre, restaurant and heated undercover pool at the Mariners Village recreational area.
Properties within the confines of the estate boast both beautiful mountain and sea views over Walker Bay and a wealth of wildlife! Mariners Village’s garden theme is Cape fynbos throughout with water wise plants and beautiful walk-paths in this fynbos paradise; – plus we are proud of our lovely ponds in a park-like area to sit relaxed on a bench and enjoy the lovely views and tranquil atmosphere.
