Rene is a fantastic host, at a fantastic guesthouse, with fantastic rooms and...very close to the white sharks. Definitely a recommendation to stay and explore the beautiful nature around. A Great White Shark trip is a must have if you are there...

Decided to stay here as the location appeared very convenient for our shark trip. The quayside was only 200m away and we thus avoided a very early pick up and bus trip from Cape Town.
Rene our host could not have been more helpful and we felt "at home" from the start. Room was spotless and well decorated. If wine tasting is to your liking a visit to Hamilton Russell should not be missed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the White Shark Guest House. The rooms are gorgeously decorated and the communal areas (kitchen and lounge) very spacious and perfectly equipped.

The owner, Rene, is very helpful, friendly and enthusiastic so don't hesitate to aks her for advice! She told us to take a slight detour along the coast on our way Stellenbosch and we ended up with one of the nicest drives of our holiday - thanks Rene! :)

Note that the guesthouse is in Kleinbaai and not directly in Gaansbaai.

The room was great with a fantastic view at the sea. Everything about the hous is very nice and it makes you feel at home. It is the best B&B that we have been during our trip! But the best of all was René! Thank you very very much for the hospitality, your sympathy, your advice for the sunset with a bottle of wine at the Kelders. Please let me know if you ever come to Holland again. I will be happy to show (and drive!) you around! I really hope to see you again some day!
