Located near Gansbaai, this B&B is a perfect base to do whale watching, shark cage diving etc. The house is situated facing the sea, and it's hard to ask for a better location sleeping to the sound of waves and waking up to an amazing breakfast by the balcony. Each room is suitably sized with a large bathroom. I cannot... More

Incredible views, very quite location, extremely hospitable hosts. This little B&B is located right on the top of the cliffs in De Kelders, with some incredible views of the bay and sunset. On our first night there we saw a school of dolphins swim by! The location was very quite and only a few cars passed by after sunset. Linda... More

This is a very nice place to stay, on a quiet road and with good views of Walkers Bay. The property is managed by a couple who do not live on-site, but they made a lovely breakfast each day and were helpful with suggestions about the local area. The rooms are furnished well, and the bathroom was a good size.... More

What a beautiful b&b set in the most stunning landscape. Rooms clean and beautifully decorated, bathroom has underfloor heating and free standing bath and the view over the bay and mountains from your bed is breathtaking. Deon the manager was beyond lovely and made an incredible breakfast (see photo attached of the selection). We would love to return here!

The rooms are spacious and stylish and the hosts, Linda and Deon, are very nice. All their recommendations for activities and restaurants proved to be spot on. The guesthouse is located in a quiet neighborhood, so the breathtaking sea view can be enjoyed without interruptions. Nice breakfast, also with a great view to the sea. Be sure to have a... More

Kleinesee Guesthouse is superbly located across a very quiet road from the ocean. Our charming room on the ground floor, had an outdoors balcony with amazing views across Walker Bay. The decor can be described as rustic, modern, homely, seaside style, and tastefully put together throughout the establishment. Breakfast was the highlight of our morning as our hosts Linda and...

Very good service from the owners who were very friendly. Breath-taking, sea facing room, just outside of the centre of town. A very short drive to restaurants and shops. Enjoyed the interaction with the owners who were extremely friendly and helpful.

My husband, a friend and I spent, regrettably, only one night here due to time constraints. The accommodation was very attractive, clean and welcoming. We were made to feel very welcome, everything worked and the breakfast was superb. We knew we had gone late in the season but were still fortunate to see a mother whale and her calf. I... More

I enjoyed a wonderful stay with excellent hosts. I would recommend Kleinzee Oceanfront Guesthouse to anyone looking for a relaxing break whilst enjoying breathtaking views. Gansbaai harbour, De Kelders caves, Winefarms, unique restaurants and Grootbos nature reserve are closeby attractions.

We were pleasantly surprised with everything about the Kleinzee Oceanfront Guesthouse. It was very clean, bright and airy, with the most wonderful view from our room. In the morning we even saw a breaching whale almost close enough to touch.
