My wife and I celebrated our anniversary in the Honeymoon Suite of Sea Star Lodge. We couldn't have chosen a better place for ourselves. De Kelders and Gansbaai are amongst the most beautiful spots in South Africa maybe in the world. Sea Star Lodge has a wonderful position overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, opposite the silhouette of the vivid but hectic...

I can highly recommend Sea Star Lodge for anyone looking for a special experience. The owner and staff are among the most welcoming and friendliest we have ever met. Arriving a bit early my wife and I were offered an early check-in as well as a late check-out when we had to leave this stunning guest house after three wonderful...

My family and me traveled the Western Cape for two weeks. Between Cape Town and Knysna we stayed in five different four and five star places. The highlight was Sea Star Lodge. Besides the wonderful surroundings (we watched a lot of whales and dolphins from our Bay View Room and its beautiful balcony) the lodge itself is stunning. We felt...

My husband and I stayed at the Sea Star Lodge in de Kelders and were completely blown away by the experience. We stayed in the honeymoon room which occupies a glass-walled corner overlooking the bay.

Gansbaai is a place slightly off the beaten track just past the popular Hermanus. In many ways it has more raw beauty to offer and is a place where you can get away from it all.
