You’ll have the villa to yourself.
You’ll love The Water House for the light, the lagoon, the mountains, the pool, the master bedroom, the living room and kitchen, the braii, and because of the family home feel. Suitable for families (with kids), big groups, and business travellers. The location is stunning!

The house has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 lavatories and a shower-room.
3 bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with showers, baths, toilets and washbasins. 2 bedrooms have washbasins and share a shower-room and lavatory.

The space
Situated 6km East of Hermanus on a private estate. Positioned in between mountains and a lagoon, the property gives the feeling of water and life flowing down the mountains, through the gardens and into the house.

The Water House is a large, open-plan home with 5 bedrooms, 3 of which are en-suite. We are particularly well suited to accommodating families with children of all ages.

3 bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with showers, baths, toilets and washbasins. 2 bedrooms have washbasins and share a shower-room and lavatory.

There are two living areas designed for different purposes. Downstairs is
the entrance hall which has a dining table seating, connecting the lagoon and mountain facing sides of the house. The living room has two sofas seating 6, there is satellite television, dvd player and a fire place. The kitchen has a bench seating 5, a vast amount of work space, full size fridge and freezer and separated room wish washing machine, dishwasher and kitchen sink. The terrace has a table seating 8, a 'waiter's window' connecting to the kitchen, a stone oven, portable gas braii and provides access to the pool and lagoon. Upstairs the living area is positioned in the centre of the house, separating the master bedroom and providing it a degree of privacy. There is seating for 6, a desk for study, and two balconies facing the lagoon and mountains respectively.

Guest access
Please make yourself at home. We require guests fill up a bedroom at a time, this allows us to rent the house to smaller parties which we otherwise wouldn't be able to.

Hello! My name is Benjamin. The Water House is very dear to me. My father - an Englishman, as I am - designed and built a home to retire to. Sadly he passed away just a year into his retirement, ten years ago now. Living in England, I am unable to welcome guests to The Water House personally. As such, the House Manager Monica will look after you, as she has the house for years. We look forward to having you stay and enjoy The Water House and make some fantastic memories here! Best, Benjamin.
