Just returned from Gansbaai where i was fortunate to have stayed with Hennie & Annetjie.
I was traveling alone and was late arriving into Gansbaai by several days but one phone call to Hennie and all was taken care of without any compromise.
They were extremely welcoming and had time to speak and inform you of the best places to eat and things to see, so much so that Hennie said if the restaurant was closed to come back and he would personally drive me to another.
I only stayed the one night and not the 4 that was intended as i was late arriving and had to leave the next evening however I would make it first on my list of places to stay if i visit again this time to see the whales.
If you want a warm friendly welcome and a good clean accommodation then contact Hennie.

Thank You so much for a memorable stay hope to see you again.

Diving with the Great White Shark was one of the thing I had to do in my life and it was worth it.
But but but ..... Hennie and Annetjie made my journey in Gansbaai unbelievable for the rest of my life.
It took only a few minutes to feel like old friends. Drink a glass of wine with them, enjoy the breakfast, go and see the whales, advices where to go and eat some excellent fried fish,.... So nice persons they are. The room was so cosy with a beautiful seaview.
I will definitely go back to South Africa, definitely go back to Gansbaai to see the Great White and definitely stay at Hennie and Annetjie 's place !!! I made my dream come true by diving with the Great White but Hennie and Annetjie made it all so magic.
I will definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Gansbaai!

We recently did a shark cage diving trip to Gansbaai and our trip was made extra nice due to our extremely friendly hosts. Right from the start, we were greeted like old lost friends and shown to our room which had a first class view of the ocean. Our room was cosy and clean and at night, we went to bed to the soothing sound of the crashing waves. The actual shark cage diving headquarters was only 3 minute's walking away which made things easy. On our first day we didn't get breakfast as that was included in the shark cage diving tour but when we decided to stay another night our hosts were more than happy to prepare us breakfast, which was both tasty, well presented and a great deal. It was hard to say good bye to Hennie and Annetjie and we wish them the best of luck. We would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Gansbaai!

we spend 2 days in this lovely cottage with the amazing sea view.
Everything was very clean and nice decorated.
The hosts were very caring, as if we known each other for many years.
If you plan to cross gansbaai you must stay in this nice guesthouse.

wonderful hosts at this small place - we had the apartment up top (so no breakfast) - the view was incredible - and its 3 mins from all the shark diving operations (which is why you come here right?) - room was clean and large and well equipped - very welcoming. and listening to the ocean lull you to sleep is always nice.

Room Tip: the apartment up top is great for two people

I would highly recommend staying at Dyer Island accommodation. The welcome received was like meeting family and immediately you feel welcomed and happy. The location is right by the sea so from your bed you have a chance to see the Whales passing by. The accommodation was spacious, clean and relaxing to be staying in and also they provide a lovely breakfast which came sweetly set out on a tray. We stayed here during a 3 and a half week vacation in South Africa and stayed only a few days, to be able to do the shark cage dive. They even helped rearrange the planned diver bring it forward one day as it would have been cancelled when we wanted to go due to the weather, so with their help I managed to still do the dive I have always wanted to do. It is their welcome, helpfulness and genuine friendliness which made staying here the most memorable of all our accommodation in South Africa.
