Welcome to Braeview Guesthouse in the picturesque town of Hermanus also known as the Heart of the Whale Route. Braeview is situated in a tranquil, scenic environment from where one can hear the whales breathing in the evenings and early mornings. Braeview is owner managed and only 150 metres from the famous cliff path where the whales can be seen from close range. A short stroll away from the village and restaurants this elegant guesthouse offers the peace and quiet one needs to plan for the next day’s exciting events and excursions.


From June to December our coastline is visited by hundreds of Southern Right whales and during this period you will be entertained by these wonderful giants of the sea when they nurse and play with their offspring just 20 metres away!
