We enjoyed our stay at the B&B very much. The room was very clean and nice, the view spectacular and the owners very kind and helpful. In a 5 minute walk you can reach the beach. Joy and Louis make you feel at home and serve a great breakfast. We would love to go back sometime.

Tucked away in what appeared to us to be a very safe residential neighborhood, was the Whale-Phin B&B. We were greeted with a smile, kindess, and tea. The reason I stayed here was the good reviews, the price, and also the location. We were driving through on our way back from a garden Route Visit, back towards Cape Town. I...

Thank's very much for your kind words, allthough our rooms are small we keep them clean and neat. Our guests are our priority, they are number one.

Very easy to find in quieter area of the bay. Safe residential feel and very welcoming hosts who were helpful and interesting to talk to. Incredible views of ocean from room and communal area. Great stop over but perhaps not spacious enough for a longer stay. Everything you could want from a guesthouse in simple fashions. Location is 15 mins...

I booked this place and was skeptical, normally the internet and cheap rates often lead to dire hotels. But i had no choice and booked it. Well was I surprised, nice room. Great views, friendly hosts and all for a very reasonable amount of cash. Well done,

The owners are the sweetest people you could ever meet. The back Patio overlooking the ocean is so peaceful and is a great place to lounge. The breakfast prepared in the mornings is top notch and made to your liking. The rooms were immaculate. A 5-10 min walk to a great beach without the crowds. Overall for the price this...

We had a wonderful stay at the guesthouse. Joy and Louis really goes out their way to ensure you are well looked after. We spent part of our honeymoon there and plan to go back this year. The room is cleaned daily, they make the BEST BREAKFAST and have the most beautiful ocean view, situated just 10min drive from town....

Not a Hilton or Mercure hotel with fancy rooms can't compete to these type of locations. We found this location by accident and it was a great surprise. We have been warm welcomed by the owners and everything was available at the room you needed. The view we got at the room was stunning! We have even spotted some dolphins...
