Reviewed 7 February 2016

Johannes was extremely welcoming and made us feel at home immediately. He gave great advice as to where we could eat in town (cheaply) - there are numerous options. The B&B itself is a 3 minute drive to the centre of Gansbaai. Clean, well presented room in a quirky home with real character.

We spent our night here. We had shark cage diving in the morning. The owner was very helpful for our requests. We reached quite late in the night around 1 am and woke up pretty early 6 am. He was awake for us.
