Meet Your Hosts
Dave and Annamarie (with our two children aged six & nine) came on holiday from the UK to visit an uncle in Cape Town in 2003. Having saved for two years, we thought it was a once in a life time holiday….Until we stood on a beach and Dave said “What are we doing with our lives, I’d love to live here and have a guest house!” I said “That’s funny I was thinking the same thing the other day!” To cut a long story short within 9 months we’d sold our house, quit our jobs, – got through immigration “kind of” (but that’s another story), and invested every penny we had in South Africa, buying a very old rundown guest house in Hermanus. We set to work immediately, with renovations. Each year we close for a few weeks, making more improvements.
Neither of us had any experience in running a business or the hospitality industry. Dave was an engineer and I was a Nursery Nurse.
