Sea Star lodge is one of the most beautiful places in Gaansbaai. We stay here every time we visit, as it has the best views, best breakfast and is close to Gaansbaai and Stanford. We usually book most of the rooms, as our family is so big, but when others guests are staying there it still feels like you have... More

Sea Star is definitely my place of choice for accommodation each time i visit Gansbaai. Its beautiful, comfortable and friendly, the rooms are all magnificent and modern. The house is perfectly situated and well suited for summer and for keeping warm in winter.

absolutely beautiful, home away from home. The lodge is clean and tidy, the staff is friendly and the food is so well prepared and fresh. Their salmon is to die for. The environment and the veiw from the lodge is amazing, a breeze of fresh air is my overall experience and will definitely be going back.

The views of the ocean are fantastic and the hospitality is more than great. But to be honest: it is Clarissa who makes this place. She is not only very charming but also the perfect hostess. We Will go back that is for sure an then we will stay longer tha just two days in this perfect B&B
