Do an online search for Hermanus accommodation and what do you get? 138 Marine is listed as the top B&B on TripAdvisor. With word-of-mouth as a reliable way of marketing in the hospitality business there is no better vote of confidence than that of TripAdvisor. 138 Marine has been the number 1 Hermanus B&B for the past 5 years and from the first impressions till waving goodbye it is clear to see why.
Not ready for retirement owners Jena and Louis Raubenheimer started building their dream house in 2007 with the idea of sharing this prime location with visitors to the Cape Whale Coast. They have never regretted establishing the guesthouse and although the business requires long hours Jenna thrives on the energy that the guests bring.
85% of 138 Marine Drive’s guests are international travellers who have either been referred to Jenna by previous guests or who have heard about this B&B via the grapevine. Guests are appreciative of the prime location across the road from the big, blue Walker Bay and love the breakfasts that is a different spread served up every day.
At this B&B guests are only 3 kilometers away from the start of the Hermanus Wine Route. Jena’s son thinks that Hemel-en-Aarde offers some of the best mountain bike cycling routes and as eight times Iron Man contestant he should know.
Good luck to Jena & Louis with their annual European cycling holiday! Come back with renewed energy to accommodate Hermanus guests in your popular B&B.
