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.

Stopped here en route to beginning Garden Route and really enjoyed the stay. Rene was very friendly and provided recommendations on the best places to view the spectacular sunset as well as a running route for the morning. She was spot on about both! Room was comfortable and very clean, bath products smelled great, and the included breakfast was tasty. I also loved the decor of the entire guest house, which had plenty of common areas for all to enjoy.

This guest house was simply amazing! We checked-in in the late afternoon and we straight enjoyed the very comfortable room: jacuzzi bathtub, large bed, comfortable armchairs and especially the beautiful, well furnished, common living room! The owner was a charming woman who treated us like family friends! We had a shark cage-diving in the early morning (around 06 am) and she allowed us to have a late check-out (after 12) in order to take shower and get refreshed after the cage-diving experience! I have to specify that we had the diving experience with a competitor firm, not with the one belonging to the guest house's owner! She was totally amazing! I would love to return at this guest-house ASAP :)

Room Tip: Pay few ZAR extra and get a room with ocean view!

We had an absolute wonderful time at Gansbaai/Kleinbaai. We stayed for 3 nights and when we saw our room it really felt wonderful. There was champagne on ice and chocolates waiting for us to enjoy. Rene even helped us to choose a perfect day for shark diving.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great
