It is the tale of two cities, or better said, a whale of a tale since Stefan left his hometown to spread his wings in search of life experience. Fifteen years have passed and he finally returned to the quaint coastal town, that he loves so much. Armed with international experience, and with his beautiful wife Nikki at his side, they were ready to start their long cherished dream of owning their own guesthouse, and thus Penguino was born.
This family run guesthouse blossomed into the 4-star luxury accommodation that Stefan and Nikki always dreamed it would be. Situated only stone’s throw from the famous cliff paths and a mere 7-minute’s walk from the town centre, Penguino could not be more ideally positioned to explore the restaurants, shops and other diversities Hermanus has on offer. Including our famous Fynbos and not to mention Hermanus’ friendly giants, the Southern Right Whales!
Not wanting to rest on the laurels of Penguino’s prime location, Stefan and Nikki invested every effort in making each guest feel special. They desire that every guest at Penguino should have an unforgettable stay. So, wether you want to relax in the tastefully and individually decorated rooms, laze around the swimming pool, dabble about town, explore the beautiful shoreline, or enjoy the gourmet cuisine from Stefan’s kitchen, your hosts are looking forward to welcoming you at the fulfilment of their dream.
Come and breathe our champagne air!
