          What a pleasurable stay. Lovely views. Excellent breakfast and service. Quaint village... will return. Ideal place with all the comfort from home. Really impressed with extras right through the guest house. A bath for a change where usually only a shower is available.

          My son and I had a fantastic trip to South Africa. We stayed at the White Shark Guest House and we were very well looked after. Nothing to say, other than complete praise to Rene and her team...thanks.
