Hermanus Estate

Hermanus Estate was given this name for one of the most beautiful places I visited  - Hermanus, South Africa, where the water and views were breathtaking.  I, Ken Hopper, have resided on this property since 1998 and thoroughly enjoy every minute.  His wife, Susan, joined him in 2013.  The Caretakers, John and Sue, have resided here for over 15 years; if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to them.  They reside on the opposite side of the Carriage House apartment.  

Hermanus is in the center of year-round activities located in Chestertown, North Creek, Gore Mountain, Warrensburg, Bolton Landing, and nearby Lake George.  You may be as busy as you wish with activities or you can relax with nature.  It is all up to you!

Before Hermanus

"No Kaire"

Prior to Hermanus, the property was called "No Kaire."  The previous owners, Jay and Gay Mahoney loved and developed this property into its present style.  Both loved the Asian culture as depicted.  Even the main house is in the shape of a bird, as in a typical Japanese summer home.

As you walk along the pathways, you will find a huge koi pond with a waterfall (under repair); however, in the winter, the pond is empty.   

The Asian culture is depicted on the Carriage House, where you will be staying.
