We had enjoyed an excellent stay at Crayfish a few years ago so made a return visit and found it just as good a second time. Reinhard and Sandra run an excellent operation - they are considerate and helpful. Their lodge is well appointed with excellent bedrooms and the situation is spectacular. Confidently recommended.

Our stay at de Kelders in the Crayfish Lodge gave us a wonderful ambiente to contemplate the many fascinating experiences that SA had to offer us on the first part of our trip before heading on towards Cape Town. The generosity of the spacious room right at the top of the house was super and we were made to feel... More

Stayed here with wife and our two teenage daughters for a couple nights while shark diving and had a wonderful stay. Beautiful place, great location, wonderful people. We loved it and highly recommend Crayfish Lodge.

we had a great time at the Crayfish Lodge. Very nice and spacious rooms. Great breakfast and the owners will help you with any activity that you are planning during your stay. Beautiful view from the terrace. A short walk from the garden down to the beach where you can watch the sunset.

Great place to stay with people who told us all about the area and where to eat, amazing views, comfortable rooms, and great facilities. The breakfast was great and the staff all gave a nice birthday presentation complete with a muffin and a candle. We had a great stay here! The beach was amazing and we loved Gansbaai in general....

The Crayfish overlooks a little cove near Gaansbai. The garden rooms are very clean, light and spacious, with a nice pool to relax in. Sandra was an attentive hostess and her breakfasts were a real treat. Her husband Reinhard organised for us to have dinner in their partner restaurant in nearby Grootbos - a treat not to be missed!!
