Welcome to The Vishuis Garden Cottage. It is situated at number 3 Hope Street and is part of The Vishuis collection of cottages. It is a darling 2 bedroomed semi detached original rustic fisherman’s cottage in Hermanus.

The Garden Cottage is the best located self catering accommodation in town. It has a lounge, dining/kitchen, its own private garden with a dining table and chairs under a pergola and a braai. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you may need including a microwave and Nespresso machine.

The Garden Cottage has 2 bedrooms with a queen size bed and 2 single beds. The linen and towels are cotton and the bedding is hypo allergenic. There are fans for the hot summer nights and electric blankets for colder weather. They share 1 bathroom with a shower.
The cottage is tastefully decorated with old Cape country furniture, beautiful artworks and playful contemporary touches. It is an experience not just a destination. It has uncapped WiFi.

The Vishuis Garden Cottage is situated in Hermanus Old Town, right in the middle of the village, but in a quiet back road. Guests can park their car in front of the cottage and walk to all the wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and galleries in the village. It is a mere 250m to the cliff path and the whale watching sites.

Praise for the Vishuis

We had a perfect stay at Vishuis! The cottage is very cosy, quiet, clean and beautiful decorated with plants and local art. Vishuis is in walking distance to restaurants, shops and the ocean and has everything you need for a perfect stay. We would recommend Marc as a host and give more than five stars, if possible.


The Vishuis is a beautifully curated house. It has all the comforts of home with beautiful art and amazing fixtures and fittings. The beds are super comfy and the linen soft. We had an amazing time and will definitely be going back. Marc was very responsive to any questions we had.


Cosy little cottage in the heart of Hermanus. The room was decorated with a lot of attention to detail. We also loved the little oven. Marc was a great host who was always approachable. His recommendations made it a special stay!
