Reginald was the perfect host for an experience in a perfect setting. We had a splendid view from the bedroom. Due to lockdown we were limited in what we could do, however we weren't disappointed and were quite happy to enjoy the view and service at Marine 5

Lovely views, friendly staff, amazingly tasty food, prepared by the Chef. Very impressed by the clean, spacious rooms, and big bathroom with sea views. Definitely worth a visit when in Gansbaai, and value for money.

It was unique in marine5. We had very relaxing days there. The guest house is very lovingly furnished and the food was very good. The surroundings are very beautiful and the accommodation is directly on the beach. A great view.

The stay was great and the service and atmosphere was excellent. From the house it is possible to see the whales in the ocean. There is a delicious dinner included. There are rescued animals around and especially dog Bella made our time there totally good. It feels a bit like home, but is very luxurious at the same time.

What a wonderful time we had here. The welcome from Reggie was lovely and from then everything was just perfect. Rooms are spotless and the views are great. We saw whales on the 3 morning we were there! It was great after a day of site-seeing to get back to this lovely property and have a wonderful dinner made by Reggie. All 3 meals we had were superb and breakfast is also great. Lindi the owner joins in the evening and has a little chat with the guests and assists Reggie, which is a lovely touch. There are only 3 rooms so Lindi can give that personal touch and make everyone feel special. There is a small selection of wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks and you just write done what you have and its charged at the end of your stay - very trusting and very reasonable. Reggie is there all the time to offer advise on where to go, do your laundry (for a small charge) and really assist with anything - he is just wonderful and the loveliest friendliest man. I cannot fault Marine5 and I would highly recommend.
