Birkenhead House

11th St. at 7th Ave., Voelklip, Hermanus, Western Cape, 7200, South Africa

If whale-watching is on your agenda, then consider this stunning hotel mandatory; it's unlikely you'll come across a better ocean-facing position than the one of Birkenhead House. Overlooking Walker Bay, where Southern Right and Humpack Whales breach meters from the shore, Birkenhead House was formerly the holiday home of the owners Phil and Liz Biden. The hotel still hasn't lost its homey, holiday feel, but has acquired all the bells and whistles of a luxury hotel. The rooms are classic and spacious, peppered with colorful pieces of furniture and the main lounge area has large, comfy couches and a roaring fire place. On the front deck, you can lounge on one of the sunbeds while gazing over the stunning ocean vista.
