Johannes is the friendliest and warmest host you could hope to find anywhere on your travels. He truly enjoys hosting people in his lovely home and it shows in the way he takes care of his guests. The home is situated about 5 minutes drive away from the shark cage diving harbour and not far from the coast where you can spend some time watching the whales. The rooms are well appointed and very clean. Shower and toilets were great with plenty of hot water. The breakfast muffin was the best I've ever tasted and Johannes has plenty of stories from his extensive travels around the world.

Villa Ocean is a great place to stay in Gansbaai. We were made very welcome by Arnold, who helped us with information on diving with sharks and with directions of places to dine in town. Me and my friends stayed in two twin suites and found the rooms quite comfortable and the showers very good. The breakfast was very tasty and well prepared with scrambled eggs, bacon, bread, cheese, yoghurt, natural juice, .... Arnold was a great host, very friendly indeed, would stay again at the Villa Ocean.

The reasonable rates at this charming guest house are misleading - it's great ! Johannes has to be the top host. So welcoming and helpful..making us dinner reservations, offering us wine, making sure we were comfortable, setting up anti-mosquito thingy and cooking a yummy breakfast. Thank you ! We will be back.

Johannes was extremely welcoming and made us feel at home immediately. He gave great advice as to where we could eat in town (cheaply) - there are numerous options. The B&B itself is a 3 minute drive to the centre of Gansbaai. Clean, well presented room in a quirky home with real character.
