We spent two nights at the White Shark Guest House and it was absolutely lovely! There were four of us so we rented the downstairs cottage... it was SO NICE! The cottage was super clean, nicely decorated, has two very spacious bathrooms and all of the amenities one would need in the kitchen. Rene is the most delightful hostess and makes you feel like YOU are the guest she has been waiting for! The breakfast buffet had a nice variety of options and was very tasty. I highly recommend WSGH to anyone traveling to Gansbaai !

I had a most wonderful time staying at White Shark Guest House. Rene and her colleague (I've forgotten the name, sorry) went out of their way to make me feel welcome. Rene even gave me a lift to the Danger Point Lighthouse just so I could visit it. Perfectly located if you're going shark diving, situated just across the street from The Great White House, which in addition to being the starting point for shark cage diving tours also houses a nice restaurant. Highest possible scores for the room and amenities as well. My room had a private balcony with a lovely view of the ocean. Breakfast was also excellent. God willing, I'll definitely come back.
