We drove to Gansbaai from Capetown in our rental car, an easy and picturesque drive. On arrival at the White Shark guest house we were greeted and shown to our respective rooms. They are big and beautifully furnished. our room had a beautiful view over the ocean and along the coast. The bathroom was well appointed with a lovely shower and spa bath. All the candles and lovely smelling accessories were a plus. There is a lovely spacious shared lounge with a great view along the coast also. it is possible to see the boats returning from their shark experiences. Breakfast is served in the White Shark Hotel across the road which was also the local restaurant and cafe, a historic building that probably once serviced the fishing village. It is a two minute walk to the boat ramp where the boats can be watched. All the local departures points for shark
diving are very close by, only one to two minutes walk which is good if you have a 6am departure. Renee booked our shark diving experience for us after we emailed her once our booking was confirmed.
Thank you Renee for a lovely stay and we look forward to returning.
