The Crayfish Lodge guesthouse is the beautiful architectural-equivalent of its quality hosts, Sandra and Reinhardt. Sandra's keen eye for detail, her great taste buds, and passion for organic foods serves for quality, healthy breakfast. Together the couple provide warm hospitality, and you can count on them to recommend the most enjoyable hot spots of Gansbaai. The guesthouse is located in an ideal part of Gansbaai, capturing the impeccable sunset, curbing the south-easter wind of Cape Town, making it a haven for a spectacular sundowner or night cap in view of the beautiful sea horizon, and for a calm night's rest. It has been my second visit, and the stay is consistently spectacular. I 100% recommend the guesthouse as your go to spot in Gansbaai!

Sandra & Reinhardt have created a gem and we were privileged to have found their lodge and stayed there. Breath taking sea views from our room and private patio. The whole house is spotless and immaculate with exceptional attention to detail. Breakfast with Sandra is special, everything is homemade and super fresh. They freely share their knowledge and recommendations with their guests. Wish we had an extra day to stay over, but we’ll be back again.
