A wonderful location, wonderfull views and perfect hosts. We wished we could have spent longer! The room was very comfortable with a large shower and all amenities - great bed. Whether it was the sea air, the bed, or dinner, slept very well and had an excellent breakfast. Hosts are a fount of knowledge on the area and dinner at...

Very friendly owners; lovely welcome drink and Sandra is very passionate about the area, providing lots of useful information - she even booked our dinner at the nearby lodge and shark cage diving excursion (both of which we would highly recommended). There's also a beautiful coastal walk very close to the hotel. Our room was exceptional (panoramic suite) with two...

Everything about Crayfish Lodge was excellent. Sandra and Reinhard were the perfect hosts and couldn't do enough for you. The staff were also fantastic. The views were beautiful, the rooms gorgeous and so comfortable(massive bed!), the lodge itself was stunning. Couldn't recommend this place more highly.

After you find the place, De Kelders isn't that big, oooooh is your general reaction. Your hosts, Susan and Reinhardt, couldn't be nicer or more helpful. But the little place is spectacular, and so much more than first meets the eye. Set up a bit of hill overlooking the ocean the views are nothing short of amazing. There is a...

Our stay at Crayfish Lodge was perfect. The hosts were very friendly and provided very helpful information as well as a welcome drink upon arrival. All the while, we enjoyed the incredible view of the ocean from this property, which we will never forget. The room was very comfortable with a great view of the ocean. The breakfast was the...

This trip to South Africa was more or less a "best of" and we definitely didn't want to miss out on Gansbaii! And once again I must say that it was a pity to have stayed for 2 nights only at Crayfish Lodge! The hosts, the lodge and the surroundings and activities are still as lovely, impressive and exciting as...

Sandra and Reinhard are delightful and welcoming hosts to this comfortable, well designed guest house perched on the cliff overlooking Walker Bay and private beach. All suites are well designed, comfortable. Such an interesting breakfast is served every morning. Great hosts for valuable ideas of what to do and see and where to wine and dine. Our American friends were...

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights before doing The Fynbos trail, and 1 night after the walk. The accommodation, location, Sandra/Reinhard and staff were excellent. The breakfast specials and juices were delicious. It is a drive to restaurants, but there is an option of paying for a ride. Thank you all.

This Modern Guest House right on the coastal walk represented very good value for money. We actually stayed in two different rooms during our stay (No fault of the owners). The Panorama on the top floor was huge and well fitted with ample chairs inside and out and a fantastic view over the ocean. The regular room on the bottom...

My wife and I were in SA in January and had the pleasure of staying at the Crayfish Lodge. Standing at almost the edge of the Ocean (any closer and you'd get your feet wet) it has some spectacular views from the rooms (we were on the top floor). Wrong time of the year for whale watching but did catch...
