Our stay was great, just too short!

Rene's customer service was just incredible. She bent over backwards to make every aspect of our stay enjoyable - even booking tours for us and arranging 1- day laundry service, all at great prices. Unbelievable value for the money all around.

Wonderful. Renee made great suggestions for what to do and where to go along our route back to Cape Town. She was a big help in getting our trip to Africa off to a great start. The place is very comfortable and within walking distance to shark cage diving.

          Renee and Monica were wonderful hosts! They did everything they could to make our stay pleasant including taking us to De Kelders, a local cliff site. They made all arrangements for dinner each night and bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. Our room was excellent with a beautiful view of the coast. Towels were changed every day including the bath mats! Wonderful stay.

          Fantastic stay at a great location - thanks to Renè for the fantastic hospitality!”
          The guest house is perfectly located for a stay in the Gansbaai / Kleinbaai area. We felt so welcome from the first minute and enjoyed the stay in a relaxing environment very much. The room was very nice, the breakfast very delicious and the staff is really great. Renè (host) was incredibly helpful for re-organising our planned shark diving tour which was initially cancelled due to bad weather. We always would come back for a future stay in the area!

          We loved our stay! We were made to feel very welcome. ”
          Our room was perfectly clean, cozy and comfortable. The electric blankets were a nice touch. We considered staying at Hermanus, but this guest house in Gansbaai was a short 30s stroll to marine dynamics, which allowed us to grab an extra hour of sleep before our 6am shark cage diving adventure.

          A very welcoming place to stay.”
          Great Location a stones throw from the harbour, where you will find all the shark diving companies and across the road from a great restaurant. Renee is a very welcoming host, she is available to offer help and advice if needed, but strikes as nice balance between being helpful and giving you your own space and privacy. Breakfast is provided and is plentiful and very tasty with a nice selection of hot and cold options. Rooms are spotlessly clean, cozy with electric blankets in winter and beautifully decorated, Renee upgraded us to a bigger room on the top floor as we were the only guests staying. The guest lounge is a lovely place to chill out and leads to a deck with panoramic views of the bay, there are lots of comfy sofas, snuggly blankets for cold winter nights, tea and coffee on hand and a nice touch is a help yourself bar with a good choice of beer and wine, with an honesty box for payment. A pot bellied stove or fire would have made it even more perfect for cold winter day

We actually met another American who had a mutual friend of ours. SMALL WORLD, then we saw him again at Table Mountain. Would highly recommend!

We had a balcony overlooking the ocean with gorgeous views over the Bay. Marine Dynamics are just opposite so very convenient location. We could even take a hot shower after returning from a long trip out on the boat. Great experience!

          Renae is the perfect host & has decorated the place very beautifully. We fell in love with the guest house the second we entered the house. An absolutely breath-taking view of the sunset & sunrise from the balcony, her guest house is perfectly located. It's opposite marine dynamics. One must plan to reach at least by 4 pm to not miss the sunset. We stayed for one night & wished if we would stay for one more. Regards, Mohit & Roshi

          My husband and I stayed at this property for one night on December 28, 2017. Our schedule for the day got delayed and we reached Gansbai at 10 pm. Out hostess Renee was very accommodating, kept in touch with us all evening and came to check us in after 10 pm. The room was lovely and comfortable. The location of the guest house is also very convenient as it is a 2 minute drive to most shark cage diving companies. We had a decent breakfast the next morning and left early to go shark cage diving. Would recommend this guest house to everyone.

We were warmed received by the reception, and flexible check-out arrangements were really convenient, since we went whale watching on that morning. Family Suite was spacious and clean.
