    Very cozy setup. Has pretty much everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Worked well for us travelling with small kids. Well equipped and includes a built in braai.

Bambusie is a beautiful fully equipped 3 bedrooms, 6 sleeper self-catering apartment situated in the secluded seaside village of Franskraal just outside Gansbaai. Located 150m from the Franskraal sea shore and 50m from the local shop, & restaurant. Within walking distance from the popular Uilenkraalsmond Holiday Resort with a safe swimming beach and lagoon. Very close to Kleinbaai Harbour (home of the great white shark) where the shark-cage boats take visitors on Great White Shark-diving trips. Gansbaai is a small fishing town internationally recognized for great white shark cage diving and conservation, only 30 minutes from Hermanus and 2 hours’ drive from Cape Town.
Bambusie is my pride and my joy and I care for it and will always do.
