We stayed in room 1 at the top which was huge and had a bath overlooking the ocean. Breakfast was fantastic and reservations etc were all made for us. If visiting the area, this is... More

Crayfish Lodge is an extremely modern, clean and well appointed Guest House. Sandra is efficiency personified. She takes care of all the details and goes to great lengths to look after her guests. The guest house is light and airy. To add a cherry on the cake we saw whales from the terrace. The Lodge is in an excellent location... More

We felt very welcome and really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was excellent! The location was very safe with spectacular views, and easy access to all activities that were on offer. We will definately recommend this accommodation to anybody that is looking for a rejuvanating breakaway.

The views from every part of this B & B were amazing. We could see whales right from the pool area, and you can watch the fishing boats come in every evening. Also, you can hike along the coast directly out of the back of the property, which I highly recommend for great views. The owners and people who work... More

driving from Capetown to The Kelders is a breathtaking tour. Arriving at The Kelders your first thought is - why am I hear! This thought has vanished at the moment you come into the Crayfish Lodge. Warm hospitality and a amazing view in a beautifull surrounding. After only 10 minutes we new that only one night here is not enough.... More

The location is perfect to enjoy all the things this beautiful area has to offer and the owners, Sandra and Reinhard, and their staff couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. From dinner reservations to tour... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon for shark diving and to see the whales. If you want to do both of these things then this is a great place to stay. We could see the whales from our room which was a real treat. The breakfast was amazing with a great view over looking the bay. We had... More

A wonderful guest house with absolutely everything provided for a relaxing few days after our tour in SA. Very friendly hosts, superb breakfasts and amazing views of whales passing by - what more could you want! Definitely recommended, and be sure to go in Sept/Oct to see the whales from the shoreline. I hope we will return one day, it... More

This was a spur of the moment visit to the side of Walker Bay we had not previously visited. It's a revelation. Crayfish Lodge has been custom-built for comfort and enjoyment. Sandra and Reinhard are warm and welcoming and go our of their way to give their guests a memorable experience. The whales played their role too. Thanks, we will... More
