    We only stayed for one night but we received a lovely welcome and the owners were really helpful, giving us advice on where to eat in town and how best to get to our next stop on the garden route. Breakfast was lovely too!

    Excellent !

    Excellent emplacement (central), propriétaires absolument charmants. La demeure est magnifique et décorée avec soin. Petite piscine, salle de petit déjeuner, qualités des chambres avec terrasses. Nous avons même été surclassé.

    Sweet spot in Gansbaai

    A wonderful place in central Gansbaai, great location for taking the shark trips which starts just a few minutes away. Caron and Dave took very good care of us and really showed they care about their guests. Room was perfect for a family (2+2), the children had their own room and beds. Very good breakfast with a great selection. Gansbaai seem to be a windy place but the pool and terrace at this place was covered well from the wind, at least from the wind during our stay. The bar at this place is impressive with a great selection.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Wir waren im Nebenhaus , Eingang durch Hinterhof ,untergebracht. Sehr dunkle Zimmer, mit einem winzigen Fenster in der Tür..Altes Mobiliar, alles roch muffig und schimmelig . Die Toilette befand sich unmittelbar am Bett, es gab noch nicht einmal eine Tür. Die schlechteste Unterkunft auf unserer Reise, entspricht eher Back Packer Nieveau. Wir haben die 2. gebuchte Nacht verfallen lassen und sind eher abgereist . Der Empfang war allerdings sehr freundlich, das Frühstück war ok. Die Unterkunft liegt direkt vor einer Fischfabrik .
