    The hosts were very nice, we felt very welcome. Breakfast was great, the views from the house are lovey and they had a cute dog called Zara, there's lots of nice birds in the garden. Rooms are simple but clean with basic facilities.

    This small and very homely B&B is located a little way out of Mossel Bay centre, in a quiet and safe neighborhood. The owners are warm and welcoming and go out of their way to be helpful. I loved the chocolates and homemade biscuits in...More

    We've been staying at Whale-phin for for 6 years now as we travel between Cape Town and Plettenburgbay. It is a perfect spot to base your tour of the garden route. Phenomenal views and friendly hosts. Highly recommended.

    This might be my favorite b&b world wide. Joy and Louis are doing anything to make you feel at home away from home. Sitting on the balcony watching the ocean is just inspiring. An extraordinary place!
