The property is around 2.6 miles from Shark Cage Diving Gansbaai, 5 miles from Dangerpoint Lighthouse and 8 miles from Platbos Forest. I spent 2 nights and 3 days. Aron, the owner, and his staff were wonderful. I got in town very early (as many of you might if you come to see the sharks!) and they let me check in early. The place is very comfortable with a sunny balcony to lounge in and drink tea or wine after a day watching the whales. You will really appreciate just having a lovely place to chill out in Gaansbai because it is sleepy town. The rooms have great sheets and fluffy towels too! After seeing the whales I slept in late because the bed was so comfy. Also, I heard about a wine festival close by and Aron arranged for me to get there and back. Truly, he and the rest of the staff will make every effort to ensure you enjoy Gaansbai. All you need to do is ask. Thanks Aron for wonderful stay!!! Jill
Grootbos Private Nature Reserve offers luxury accommodations featuring spectacular views of ancient forests and the whale watching haven of Walker Bay, just a 30-minute drive from Hermanus. The word amazing would never describe my stay at Grootbos! I liked every single thing in the hotel and they really care about all the small details!
Located in Gansbaai, 2.9 miles from Shark Cage Diving Gansbaai, Benguela has accommodations with air conditioning and access to a garden with an outdoor swimming pool. Complimentary WiFi is provided. The entire experience was outstanding. Owners, staff, bedding, facilities, view, breakfast and on and on were all you could ever hope for !!!! It would be a great place to spend a month. Sorry we did not have time for another meal there - breakfast was fantastic and I’m sure the other meals would be the same. Will return!!
Featuring free WiFi, Walkerbay Accommodations offers accommodations on the seafront in Franskraalstrand, 16 mi from Hermanus. Free private parking is available on site. Very friendly owners ready to assist guests and also booking dinner if necessary. The view of the sea is amazing from the lighthouse unit. The unit was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The breakfast was great and served with an amazing view.
Located in De Kelders near Gansbaai, Amazing Grace B&B features accommodations with sea view. Free WiFi access and free private parking. The place is amazing: comfortable, clean with beautiful decor. It is very close to the beach, had a deck with a beautiful view on the ocean. The breakfast was with view on the ocean. Linda was super helpful, with recommendations and even drove us into the city. Highly recommend this place!
Located in Gansbaai, On the Rocks has accommodations with an outdoor pool, free WiFi, a garden and a bar. A fridge and electric tea pot are also available. Stunning sea views. Quiet. Ample room in the bedroom. Comfy lounge areas. Excellent breakfast. Very friendly owners and staff. Will definitely return.
Offering a barbecue and views of the sea, The Whale Cove is located in Gansbaai. Shark Cage Diving Gansbaai is 3.1 mi away. Our stay at The Whale Cove is among the best accommodation experiences we have ever had. And that's a statement I don't just make. The hosts, Paul and Tertia, are friendly, kind and welcoming. They are clearly passionate about ensuring that guests have everything they need. Many tourist activities and places to be are within driving distance. We also really liked the garden: it offers stunning sunset views and BBQ facilities.
Perched above the cliffs of the seaside village of De Kelders, Kleinzee Oceanfront Guest house offers panoramic views extending across Walker Bay to the mountain ranges of the Cape beyond. Viewing all the whales from our room was beyond magical! It was a fantastic stay and something I'll never forget!
Saxon Lodge is located in Gansbaai, which is known as the ideal location for White Shark diving and whale watching. Very friendly hosts. Lovely view from the dining area. They made our stay very pleasant if you consider that the electricity was off most of the stay due to nearby veld fires.
My favourite place was the Boathouse Restaurant. Great holiday atmosphere and friendly staff. Antique and gift shops worth browsing around for unique gifts. Would recommend Villa Ocean Crest Guest House to stay at.
It was out first visit to Gansbaai, more a relaxation enviornment. Strolls on the beach, the smell of fresh air, beautiful painted sunset and just a great place to visit. Altough I wish that the harbour could be more of a tourist attraction, not much effort has been placed with attracting tourists to the harbour. We did enjoy a great lunch at the Boathouse resturant situated at the habour. A lovely place where the locals hand out and a stunning view while you have lunch :) Yes I will visit again. One day :)
Most shark cage diving operators start here. As most groups meet at 6:30am it is easier to stay the night before in Gansbaai unless you want to get up at 3:0 am and drive from Cape Town to meet at 6:30 am. Town it self is nothing special.
We did the eco boat trip which was most enjoyable,fortunate to have good enough weather to go out to sea. Went to see the great white shark (sister ship) but did not approve of the baited lure for the sharks. Definitely give the mammals the wrong message.
We went down to look at some land and only stayed one night.We were sorry because there is a lot to do and we never had time to do anything else.Lovely little town and still a pretty quite place to visit. It was a short visit for us.We ate at a lovely restaurant over the road,the food was great and the atmosphere.
Good White Shark cage diving experience. Quiet stay at Kleinbaai. Recommend to stay at nearby places instead of day visit from Cape Town. Then we can have time to visit Hermanus or other nearby attractions also. Missed Whale viewing due to shortage of time.

First time in Gansbaai and I'm so happy I found this place. My mom and I stayed for two nights and Walkerbay offered us everything we needed and more. The hosts, Toni and Chris, were very welcoming. Toni put in so much effort to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The room itself was clean and everything you could need was provided. The sea view from the room was beautiful. It's pet-friendly too so we could bring our little Yorkie. Would definitely recommend

What an amazing place to stay in Gansbaai, Villieria was a lovely host so welcoming and the breakfast was yummy! The rooms are a great size and very comfortable. Lovely views out onto the bay from our room. Really impressed and a great location. Villieria kept in touch the whole time leading up to our stay and booked us the Great White Shark tour and evening meal at a cute little restaurant in the village. Thank you so much!

The warmest welcome that you receive from all the staff members. This lovely property and it's spacious bedrooms ensure a comfortable stay 'home away from home'. Outstanding breakfasts with attention to detail. A definite must stay-over when in De Kelders/Gansbaai. I will for sure be back and look forward to my next visit to experience Jonathan's unique food and wine pairing extravaganza.

Everything! We had the second floor apartment which could sleep at least 5 people in 3 rooms. The apartment was clean, comfortable, spacious and modern. The kitchen had all we needed to cook a decent meal. Several minutes of walking from the sea. 5-minute drive from grocery stores, shops and banks, etc. We also felt safe. Would definitely stay here if I visited Gansbaai or the nearby towns again.

Lovely building from the 20‘s with a modern touch at the inside. We enjoyed our stay at the Gansbaai Boarding Lodge. The room was nice and quiet. The host is a lovely guy who helps you where ever he can and at any time. He prepared a good breakfast matching our needs. We really enjoyed his tips and his great personality. We would definitely come back and recommend this place.

The master bedrooms on the ground floor, with sprawling washrooms, good quality toiletries, well lit-up rooms, good furnishing and decor, enough heating in the rooms and sumptuous breakfast and a wonderful host. Also this property is at a stone throw distance from Marine Dynamics who conducts Shark Cage Diving in Gansbaai.

Wow!! Is the first word that comes to mind from the moment you set foot through the front door of Romans Villa. A beautifull unique home. Tastefully decorated very spacious yet cosy at the same time. Everything from the bedrooms,bathrooms to the living areas to the kitchen flowing to the braai and outside area was just amazing. Staff are super friendly and helpfull and so is the owner. The ocean view is the "show stopper",we got to watch a pair of whales playing in the ocean just a stone throw from the deck at Romans Villa. Our stay here was a lovelly experience that I hope to repeat.
