Traveller Reviews

  • Abalone was nice and comfortable.

    Sara Kanfar, July 2013
  • Hermanus was lovely. Abalone Guest House was beautiful, we really enjoyed it there. We went shark cage diving with Marine Dynamics (it was booked for us upon our arrival at Abalone), and they were professional and courteous.
