From the gorgeous setting and views, to the delicious breakfast, comfy slippers and robes, an immaculate room, and most of all the incredibly gracious staff, you have to ask yourself: Why wouldn't I make the trip to lovely Gansbaai/De Kelders and spoil myself at Sea Star Lodge? Go ahead, you deserve it.

Lovely accommodation and friendly helpful staff. Well worth a visit, the view was awesome from our rooftop room. Only negative is the outdated shower in the bath. The location is perfect for a visit to the area.

Spent a weekend in the honeymoon suite of this exquisite 5* guesthouse with superb ocean front views - Manageres, Kate and husband team were just great - Northing was too much for this couple and they exhausted all avenues to make our stay a memorable one - the service was above average and the place is ultra modern and infinitely trendy - breakfast is above average - would certainly return.
