Von Abercron Residence

Since 2001

Petra von Abercron - Owner and host

Your host were just tourists when she visited South Africa for the first time in 2001 and instantly fell in love with Hermanus. The dream to emigrate to this wonderful country started from the very beginning.

Within 14 days, that dream took shape when she decided to run a guest house in Hermanus. Her vision was to offer as well a luxurious and relaxing place as a second home far from home to guests.

The house is complimented with African and European style. Guests are hosted and served by Petra in languages German and English.
