Great place for a couple of days visiting the coast for whale watching. The beach is a couple of minutes walk, and a perfect spot for seeing the whales which come very close. A nice cliff top walk is nearby - perfect for sunset! The suite was very well furnished with a large comfy bed and a separate lounge with...

We stayed in the self-catered apartment next to the guesthouse, sharing the pool and games room. We had previously stayed at The Roundhouse many years ago and returned as we had found the property to be in an excellent location with Dave and Elna the owners very accommodating during our stay. Although we did not manage to meet the owners...

We only stayed one night here after a shark dive and frankly we were exhausted by the dive experience, so we didnt really take advantage of all that this property offered. Its located in a suburban type of setting, very close to the bay, but not really walking distance to the water. We rented a house next to the round...

The round house is a great guesthouse in DeKelders, a suburb of Gansbaai. The rooms are comfy and well equipped. The lucky guest can sit with a drink in the rooftop jacuzzi watching whales blow in the bay. It is almost too perfect to believe it. The host is lovely and be sure to order the pancakes with cinnamon sugar...

My sister & I stayed stayed in the luxury suite for a special family getaway. Despite requesting twin beds ( the option was given on the website) , we arrived to find the bed a single kingsize, but were given separate duvets. We were also given a complimentary plate of homemade choc-chip cookies when we remarked how good they smelled...
