Eyerthing was really fine. The manager were friendly and we feel like home. The rooms were very cosy and the view was awesome. Thanks for that. When we will come back to South africa we will stay there again.

While our stay was pleasant and our host was great, the guesthouse did not entirely live up to our requirements. The ground units were small, yet comfy. It's just not the kind of room one could spend the afternoon lazing about. And since gaansbaai is not a bustling town, and when there are no whales about, you almost expect the... More

Ilana M, Owner at Kleinzee Oceanfront Guesthouse, responded to this review

We have taken note that the two ground floor rooms can hear the sound of breakfast being served. Hence we have moved breakfast to another area in the house. Breakfast is not only an hour long and not rushed. Guests are welcome to linger and enjoy the view with a buffet and a warm breakfast on offer. Rooms are serviced... More

We had a wonderful stay at Kleinzee Oceanfront Guesthouse and much too short. The Location is perfect - the ocean is directly in front of the house. The honeymoon Suite is absolutely charming, lovely furniture and Details and very clean. Furthermore we enjoyed the breakfast and Deon was such a lovely host - he did everything to make us feel...

From the welcoming to the farewell, this place was like heaven. Linda was very warm and available if we needed anything. She prepared a delicious breakfast with homemade muesli to dye for. The location is great, by the cliff and it was so nice to hear the ocean in the morning. There are some hidden pools by the cliff so... More

The rooms are nice and have a fantastic view to the bay. Especially the suite upstairs has a great overview. The bathroom is very spacious. The disadvantage for the 2 rooms downstairs ist the location directly to the breakfast room. When the breakfast starts a further sleep in the 2 rooms downstairs is almost impossible.

I cannot fault this place in the slightest - the room was a ground floor sea facing room with a private deck and the view was amazing. The room was spacious and the bed was soooo comfy I almost didn't get out of it, huge beautiful bathroom! I'm pretty sure there are no bad rooms in this pace! Linda and... More

This guest house is right on the edge of the ocean. We saw many whales during our stay. Jumping and playing close to the edge of the majestic cliffs. The view was awe inspiring and we enjoyed the pristine environment and fresh air. Deon and Linda was caring hosts. We will return soon.

Cliff edge view of the whales in the bay, even while drinking morning tea in bed. Loved the room's patio for a fab sundowner spot overlooking the bay and mountains beyond. Huge bathroom! Not quite sure about having a bedroom adjoining the breakfast room, but the food choice was good and the managers were helpful and delightful.
