To make a very long story short: My Girlfriend and I arrived at the lodge with a whale family just floating meters away from the house. We parked the car and Stanley already send us a warm welcome shout from the terrace. We were ensured that whales will be here all the time so he showed us our room - the absolutely stunning see view suite - see pictures. We walked as close to the whales as we could - found nice secluded area to watch them and I took all my courage and proposed to my girlfriend. Litterally 10 seconds after she said yes the whales made beautiful sounds and minutes later the sunset broke through the before overcast sky. What sounds so cheezy here actually felt magic.
Stanley was very supportive and offered champagne ... booked an awesome restaurant and when we returned we fell asleep in a prewarmed bed looking onto the moonlit bay.
Breakfast was awesome and the staff was very friendly. Stanley and Lainy even found the time to help us with our onward journey nagotiating great discounts at Gorah (Addo).
We will definately return.
