Very nice B&B located in a super-quiet and beautiful area of Gansbaai. Our room was not too big, but very nicely decorated and very clean. The owner was very helpful in organising dinner for us the two nights we stayed with her and her recommendations were excellent. I highly recommend The Bay Lodge!

Very nice place with a great view on the ocean. The host was helpful and always very proactive: she booked us a couple of restaurants for dinner and they were both lovely. The room was clean and cozy. Breakfast was delicious!

Big, clean, spacious rooms with furniture that fits the nature. The bathroom was well equiped with necessary items. Lovely breakfast served with 2 alternatives, continental or hot breakfast, at the time you choose yourself.

The Bay Lodge is a perfect B&B for spending a relaxing holiday. Villieria and her daughter spoiled us with delicious breakfasts and even took into consideration the special diet and likes and dislikes of members of the family. Without getting up whale watching we enjoyed well protected under comfortable duvets, binoculars at hand.

We had a huge room on the ground floor with a big verandah. Our bed was just so comfortable - I never wanted to get up! Breakfast was very good, lots of fresh fruit and...

Valeria was an absolutely wonderful hostess at this B&B. She communicated often and clearly leading up to the stay. She put us in the best room in the building with wonderful views of the ocean -- and we saw whales and dolphins right from our room! We were not able to partake in breakfast because we had to get up...

And it is very close to Gansbaai so for us...

We stayed at the The Bay Lodge during our Garden Route holiday and found it to be an excellent guest house. This was mainly because we loved our host-- Villeria's sense of humour and warmth gave the place a feeling of home. She gave us the best restaurant recommendation of our entire trip, which made our stay in Gansbaai even...
