This is my first review on Trip advisor, I do not normal bother with what is my opinion. On this occasion I feel obligated. My son and I were booked in at this guest house for one night in August with a view to some cage diving the following day. Some travel issues had put us behind so we only... More

The house is wonderful, the staff is kind and helpful, René gave us many suggestions about restaurants and places where we enjoyed whale watching from the shore. We did shark diving, that has been an amazing experience!!!

She went over and above to make the stay a comfortable one. As an example, my diving finished at 1 PM then next afternoon, a time at which most hotels/guest houses... More

First off, the owner Rene is great. We couldn't find the place in the dark (our GPS routed us waaay wrong). We called and got perfect directions from Rene AND she met us in the road to make sure we found it. We arrived at a LOVELY home which we had all to ourselves (2 couples). Large, spacious and sparkling... More

What a delightful and hospital B&B. Lovely decor, clean & comfortable beds. Friendly staff. Easy to find. Nice ocean view. Quiet and peaceful area of town - not that Gansbaai is a noisy metropolis. Absolutely nothing to complain about whatsoever!
