Stayed here for one night only, traveling around South Africa, on my way from Cape to Garden Route. Chose this place from a little booklet on "best b&b's in SA", and was not disappointed.
Location is simply great - just on the beach, really, maybe 30 meters to the ocean. Sometimes, they say, you can spot a whale nearby, I wasn't so lucky (but I saw a snail! :-)
Room was reasonably big, very bright and clean, so was the bathroom. Food was either served on site or you could go to a nearby town to eat something (which I did). When in Whale View Guest House you can help yourself with wine, beer and everything from the fridge, very nice gesture.
Next morning I was on my way, but stopped in the town - and did see some whales! Far away, but still.
