We offer luxury accommodation with relaxation and comfort being the focus of your stay. The surrounding picturesque Overberg area has so much to offer. There are blue-flag beaches to stroll along, mountains to paraglide from, whales to watch, wines to taste, Fynbos trails to walk, artists’ studios and galleries to visit, or maybe you just want to read your book at our pool and dine on freshly baked cake and tea. Whatever you choose, we aim to send you off a happy traveller.
Our 5 en-suite bedrooms have many creature comforts. The beds are super-king and extra-length with crisp percale cotton sheets. There is a coffee-pod machine and other beverage sachets on the drinks tray in your room, and we’ve also remembered fresh milk and house-baked biscotti.» Book a room
With our mature trees comes abundant bird life. Hopefully during your stay you’ll be lucky to see the two owls that come and go. Their stayover spot is in the lacebark tree just outside the kitchen. Bronze-breasted sunbirds dash through the morning sprinklers, and every now and again the huge shadow of a gymnogene (African harrier-hawk) sends all the pigeons and starlings screeching out of the trees. You’ll find a pair of binoculars behind the kitchen door.» Book a room
Our Food... ...is delicious
We love food so the breakfast we offer is delicious and a little different. This is served out at the pool, weather permitting. After you’ve eaten you’ll be spoilt for choice in terms of what to do for the rest of your day.
What a happy traveller said about us...
Best hidden gem in Hermanus- luxury & hospitality Posted Feb 24, 2019 From the moment we arrived, Julia and Helen provided us with an absolutely outstanding experience. Forty Trees is a luxury boutique B&B not far from the center of Hermanus tucked on a quiet tree-lined street close to the mountain. Our room was wonderfully decorated with super comfortable linens, a large bathroom and a stunning pool and garden... Read More
Dear Forty Trees What a great place to stay, even when it rains the place is shining inside and out. We will warmly recommend you to our friends that might have plans to visit South Africa. All the very best for the new generations to come (Lessly's Baby) and continue to cook your wonderful breakfasts!
We had a great stay here at Forty Trees. Everything is perfect from the rooms, breakfasts, pool, service, good wine and that you helped us with everything - even fixing a contact for Roberts sunglasses! We will be back to stay again.

07 February 2019 Dear Julia and Team, Thank You for a wonderful welcoming stay in your beautiful property. We all enjoyed the garden, pool, comfortable rooms and beds, the ultra delicious breakfasts but most of all the warm welcome you gave us. You have really gone to such trouble for us - especially helping arrange a birthday cake and evening dinner out. Thank You
