This place was recommended to me by a local company. I stayed here for two nights with my brother and had an excellent experience. Nice, clean, well managed. The owners, Caron and Dave, catered to all our needs beyond what can be expected and helped out with the local cuisine. There are several good restaurants within walking distance. There is a cute cat and dog around, both of are well behaved. We had several nice talks and learned a lot about Gansbaai & South Africa here. The bar is well equipped and has many memorabilia from previous (more or less famous) guests. We still need to test the chili tequila.
From the outside area there is a very good sea view.
Hope to be back soon again!
