We stayed here as part of our honeymoon trip along the garden route of SA in Jan 2012. It was a fraction of the price of some of the other places we stayed but when I think back on my honeymoon it is the location of some of my fondest memories from our trip. Watching the sunset on the beautiful...

We stayed at the Whale View Guesthouse for one night in April 2012. The interior design is incredible. Everything is white and has a summer feeling to it. The attention to detail is simply incredible. We arrived on Saturday night and were greeted by Nico. He showed us round and explained to us that we had the entire place to...

We stayed at the Whale View Guest House B & B for 8 nights and enjoyed it tremendously. From the warm greeting by Janine to the overall comfortable and tasteful design of the entire place. The location right by the ocean is unbelievable and peaceful, relaxing afternoons on the terrace with a glass or two of the delicious house wine...

Could not believe our eyes when we walked into this amazing Guest House. The scenery and the accommodation were superb. We had a warm welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious overseen by the very efficient manageress - Janine . We would love to go back one day. Our visit was for three nights - November 2011.

We went there for a couple of days but this was the best guest house we stayed at during our 8-day trip in Western Cape...Great view, amazing room and a wonderful host. Strongly recommended really. Excellent beds and the waves crashing on the rocks a few meters away make up for a great lullaby.

Whale View guest house was the highlight of our trip on the Garden Route. Idyllic, scenic, romantic...what more could you ask for? We were welcomed with drinks outdoors overlooking the sea, which is literally a stone throw away - where we sat until the sun came down getting to know our fellow guests. The hotel kindly booked us into a...

The best thing about our stay in this tastefully decorated guesthouse was waking up to the magnificent view of the ocean and breaking waves just outside our window. That, and the delightful breakfast enjoying the same view, was what made our stay here special. What we felt more uneasy about, was its location within a fenced and guarded compound on...
