“Stunning getaway!!!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

I decided to get away with my girlfriend for my birthday and chose Aire de Mar.What a pleasure the staff are friendly and the setting was just perfect, couldn't ask for a better getaway. The room was cosy, the sherry was great and the view breathtaking.All and all a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are spectacular

We enjoyed a stunning weekend getaway in Gansbaai where we were warmly welcomed by staff at Aire Del Mar. Our room had everything and more including the small details that any traveller would appreciate such as a heater, hair dryer, sherry and tot glasses, and even aromotherapy body wash. The views were spectacular and breakfast was really a treat. Although a three star guest house, this accommodation should really be regraded to four stars. We would definitely return here anyday. Travelling with a six month old, the hosts were also very accommodating and friendly and went the extra mile to ensure we had a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room for the best views.

We recently had a lovely weekend away at Aire de Mar. We were warmly welcomed and soon settled into our rooms, which were very clean and cosy, with beautiful views. The communal fridge/honesty bar fridge in the upstairs living area is a nice idea. Breakfast at a communal table was very enjoyable, where we could meet and chat to other guests, and the extra touches to the Mother's Day breakfast on the Sunday morning were really thoughtful. The hostess readily recommended restaurants for dinner and was also able to provide anti sea-sickness tablets (for the shark cage diving trip). I would not hesitate to recommend this guest house and will definitely stay there again when visiting this area.

Room Tip: All the sea facing rooms have wonderful views. The only mild disappointment was that the water pres...

We decided to drive to Gansbaai around 7pm from cape town so we'd be well-rested before our shark dive. Thanks to Glenda of the Gansbaai tourism office who recommended Aire del Mar, we got this cozy place to stay. Price affordable good! Cost us less than R800 for the 3 of us (1 big bed and 1 extra bed) plus the room was spacious with en suite kitchen with utensils, toaster and water heater + toilet and bath. Service was excellent as the people were friendly and cheerful. Wifi's free as well! Location's perfect coz it's really close to the meeting place for our shark dive at 1200h. The view is nice, neighborhood quaint. It had everything we ever wanted and more. :) highly recommended! :)

We only stayed there one night, but it was very nice to have the ocean right in front of our apartement. The welcome was a bit unfriendly but nevertheless a good place to stay on the route to cape town

I stayed at Aire Del Mar in february 2012 for 2 nights. It was certainly a very comfortable experience,home away from home feeling. I enjoyed the shower and was treated as a valued guest when I had breakfast sent to my room for my convenience. It was a pleasure to have free Wi-Fi at a self catering place. Incredible views and very safe enviroment.Thank you
