“Great watching whales while lying in bed !”
Reviewed 28 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Circumstances made us arrive much later than expected, but it was no problem and we were met with the key and smiles. We were recommended the "fish lady" in Gansbaai to get some food before it closed and so had a great supper with the provided bottle of wine. The apartment is very modern, clean and comfortable and lying in bed watching the whales was an added treat.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We're fortunate to have such a great position to view the whales (and in bed is as good a place as any!!)

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 27 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Wow. The best accommodation on our road trip. Very easy to book and great clear communication and instructions. The pictures don't really do it justice. It was beautifully clean and even had fresh flowers on the table. We loved watching the whales from the balcony. The only improvement would have been to have access to the washing machine.

Thank you very much for letting us share your wonderful seafront holiday home at such a reasonable rate. We were only two but it was still amazing value.

“Fantastic Sea View”
Reviewed 28 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The Lookout at Whale Cove has spectacular views of Walker Bay. The balcony was the perfect place to watch and hear the whales while enjoying the complimentary bottle of wine.
We really enjoyed our stay at The Lookout despite there being no key for us at the designated collection point when we arrived. The friendly staff at the Gansbaai Tourism office went to great lengths to track down the key.

Thank you so much for your great review, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I apologise that the key was not at the Tourism office as planned, it was completely unacceptable that our management service had not delivered the key back to them in time. In fact, we have decided to buy a remote lock for the apartment so that guests are not dependent on anybody to get a key - and can arrive anytime that suits them. Kind regards, Mailie

“Excellent and breathtaking site and view, all best, highly recommended”
Reviewed 12 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Excellent and breath-taking site and view, all best, highly recommended
Accommodation is part of a residential area that is closed but not really gated. Directly at the costal drive with direct view to the ocean. We could see shales from our bed! Unbelievalbe view and highly recommended.

“Simply incredible”
Reviewed 8 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I don't know how it is in summer. We were there in winter and we had whales under the terrace. This means that we could hear the whales under our terrace. I don't think, and I don't know if, there is a similar place all around the world. We didn't look for a beach. We simply listened to the whales' song out of our apartment. Beautiful

Thanks Sergio - you feel like we feel about the whales - there's no better sound (and sight) in the world! We're so fortunate to have the position that we do, right on the ocean, so close to the whales. Next time you can look for the beaches - they're pretty amazing too! Kind regards, Mailie
