Hermanus Area

Hermanus is about 120 km from Cape Town, on the Indian Ocean at the start of the Garden Route. It is recognized as the best land based whale watching site in the world - between 60 and 100 Southern Right Whales visit Walker Bay from July through December every year and often come within five to ten metres of the coast. The area around Hermanus has wonderful beaches - Grotto, Voelklip, Kammabaai, Sandbaai and Onrus beaches all offer either swimming, surfing, snorkelling or beautiful little rock pools.

The mountains surrounding Hermanus are home to the Fernkloof Nature Reserve with some 40 km of graded footpaths and beautiful examples of fynbos. Avid golfers will enjoy the Hermanus Golf Club, the world class Arabella golf course and the courses available in Kleinmond and Kleinbaai. Hermanus has attracted a number of established artists and local galleries are well worth a visit and the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (heaven and earth valley), nestling just behind the mountains framing the town, is home to some of the fastest growing young wine farms in South Africa.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
