Nice Owner. Close to the Sea.
Breakfast not ealier than 8.15 possibel. We could not access our bathroom directly, we had to to walk across the floor The Room was very dark, no SeaView no Balcony. Make sure you are in a SeaView Room and don't book room #3 !
Villieria was a fantastic hostess, so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, her hospitality was second to none! The room was lovely with very comfortable beds. We were lucky enough to see Whales breaching in the sea opposite our terrace. We had such fun and will certainly return again!
good breakfast. helpfull and friendly people. whales so close.
compared with other accomodations, even at more "famous" places: expensive!
This was my third time at the Bay Lodge. I really love this place, you can sit on your balcony and watch the whales play all day..beautiful rooms and Villeria is just an awesome host. Very good breakfast and close to the cage diving. Highly recommended..We will be back:)
We loved our stay. We saw loads of whales and our hostess was the dearest woman with a heart of gold and absolute soul. Our bed was an oasis and we really were spoilt to the bone. Happiness all around. A must for a spiritual experience in God's nature with his creatures
- the owner is a wonderfull lady, very helpful and kind hearted - Location is more than perfect and the view is breathtaking - The rooms are very comfort and cozy
- That i didn't have time to stay more.
The owner is an absolute gem of a woman. She truly makes you feel at home and tries her utmost best to accommodate you. The rooms are beautifully furnished with an antique finish and allows a lovely view for whale watching.
Very helpfull and friendly owne. Good service, excellent and very beautiful location and view on the ocean.
View over the ocean was beautiful. Clean good bed, breakfast was excellent, our host Val was very helpful, pleasant and kind.the unit was very clean, we have have no complaints. Good value for money.
Nothing at all
Villiera is a gem! This lady has devoted her whole evening to help us out and communicate with Budget car rental who delivered a very poor service, but she managed (in Afrikaans!) to get what we needed - which we wouldn' t have achieved with our European attitude :-) . Villiera is fun, always ready to help (she even offered to drive us to the restaurant!), her house is a home to anybody (with views on the ocean), it's clean and cosy and the breakfast is superb. If you want to go shark diving, that's the place to stay!
The Bay Lodge is a quaint and cosy spot in a great location overlooking Walker Bay. Villeria was a warm and welcoming host and was a great source of advice with regard to suggesting places to eat and things to do.
Loved the room and the beautiful view from the balcony. Villiera is a wonderful and caring host. If only there was an aircon!! We had a very uncomfortable evening because it was very HOT and we could not sleep.
Valeria was amazing and could not have done more for us. What a lovely lady!! She rang aroung various shark diving companies trying to get us hooked up with a dive and had some great tips for restaurants. We stayed and chattted at the kitechen table after we had checked out over a nice cup of Roobois.
That we missed breakfast because of an early start for the shark dive.
The owner Valeria, was helpful and couldn't do enough for us. She pre-booked us into a wonderful restaurant called the blue goose. In the morning my other half was cage diving with sharks, she made sure I had somewhere to sit and read and did not hurry me out of the room.
We loved the beautiful white linen and solid, old furniture. Also the fact that we could see the waves breaking and could walk to be closer to the water.
We liked everything!
Bathroom,breakfast and as well as the the lights on the room were not working, we had to use side lamps. Also on their website they don't show their bathrooms and with the photo's being edited you come with such high expectations only to be let down on your arrival. We only slept one day of the two,then booked another place in the area that met what we had in mind.
Good views, near the beach. Excellent host created a homely atmosphere.
No air conditioning. Very hot on the veranda in the afternoon. Shared veranda could be used by smokers! Bathroom built into the room so very small. No TV in the room.
The very warm host. You feel just like home. And the wonderful location, very wild area, next to the sea. Amazing.
The BBQ facility is not a real one. But we found an alternative in the kitchen of our host. So no big deal, just as information.
The hospitality was great and the vlew from our balcony was just awesome.
The wi-fi connection was a very weak. An aircon would have really helped alot as it was very hot and we could not sleep with the balcony door open as the mosquitos were bad.
It feels like your own home. The owner is such a charming lady and left no stone unturned to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Loved the balcony with beautiful sea view and that there were braai facilities.
It was an unusually hot summer, and an aircon in the room would have made a big difference.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely location and view.
Could provide more info on local restaurants, attractions etc.
What a nice place and a charming host - it was like visiting my granny. Stunning views and such a warm welcome !
Nice location, very close to the beach. Whale watching from room
Very beautiful Guesthouse with a great view on the sea. We enjoyed our stay there very much. A warm and mindful host with a lot of inside advices helped us a lot. We sure can recommend this lodge.
Lovely room, lovely view, lovely host! Baie dankie vir twee goie dag!
