The mild Mediterranean climate, champagne air, mountains covered by Fynbos, rich marine life, and the best land-based whale watching in the world, make Hermanus one of the most magnificent and desirable eco-destinations in the country and encourages around-the-year tourism seasons during the winter months.
Already popular for second homes, the town is now a hot spot for remote workers and semigrating families who can enjoy a cosmopolitan coastal lifestyle, access to the beautiful Hemel en Aarde Wine Valley, and top-class facilities and great schools.
Hermanus has mountain trails and the Atlantic Ocean for the outdoor enthusiasts, beautiful beaches, numerous high-quality restaurants, coffee shops, and cafés, and proximity to incredible wine farms, it really is a special place to live.
According to TPN, the average value of a sectional title property increased from just over R1.4 million in the first quarter of 2020 to almost R2.3 million at the end of 2021. That being said, it is still possible to buy a sectional title property as a first-home buyer in Hermanus, with the average sales price in 2021 at R1.2 million.
Hermanus is also home to several lifestyle estates, a popular choice for buyers moving to the Western Cape from Gauteng. Freehold prices have also shown steady growth, from just under R1.5 in 2019 to just over R3 million, according to TPN’s data.
Like many of the emerging Zoom towns, Hermanus offers similar amenities and attractions as a city, but within a coastal setting. Cape Town is less than two hours’ drive away, and Hermanus boasts a choice of excellent schools, medical facilities, and recreational opportunities.
No longer just a holiday stop, Hermanus has become a popular destination for permanent residents wanting a lifestyle change.
