Stay at Birkenhead House, Whale Coast

Overlooking Walker's Bay, Birkenhead is a magical getaway and even more so during the calving season of the southern right whales, where the whales come close to the shore.

Birkenhead House, Whale Coast, South Africa

Birkenhead House is a beautiful haven up on the cliffs overlooking Walker's Bay. Only a few minutes walk to the nearby beaches below the rim-flow pool, the Birkenhead provides absolute luxury and incredible views across the bay. There are eleven spacious and individually appointed en-suite rooms that are a mix of modern and antique decor. The house is found in upper class residential area on the outskirts of Hermanus and its sandy walls confine superb interiors. If you choose to dine elsewhere, it is a short drive to the main town and its restaurants.
