Heerlik, gemaklik, rustig.

Oom Louis en tannie Joy is die dierbaarste en wonderlikste mense, ons het dadelik tuis gevoel. Oom Louis maak die heerlikste ontbyt! Ons het so bederf gevoel met koekies en beskuit en sjokelade in ons kamer. Hulle het ons kom roep om die walvisse te kyk vanaf die dek! Ons het baie beter diens by die oom en tannie gekry as wat ons by 5-ster gastehuise of 'n lodge al gekry het, die woonstel en kamer is baie meer toegerus en gemaklik as die 5-ster gastehuis waar ons in Wildernis gebly het. Ons sal definitief weer gaan.

Nice to work by the sea.

Although unusual, I like to book self-catering accommodation if I need to travel for work. The "Lavender" unit is ideal. Well equipped for a quick meal with crockery, cutlery, microwave, two-plate stove and small oven, kettle, etc.) A table for work (and eating) and a sea view with beautiful garden where birds nest. Exactly the change in environment needed to stimulate creative and productive work.

Lekker om te werk by die see.

Alhoewel ongewoon bespreek ek graag selfsorg-verblyf as ek moet reis vir werk. Die "Lavender" eenheid is ideaal. Goed toegerus vir 'n vinnige ete met breekware, messegoed, mikrogolf, twee-plaat stoof en klein oond, ketel, ens.) 'n Tafel vir werk (en eet) en 'n see-uitsig met pragtige tuin waar voëltjies baljaar. Presies die verandering in omgewing nodig om kreatiewe en produktiewe werk aan te wakker.

Het een aand by WhalePhin oornag. Pragtige ligging. Die ligging is wonderlik met 'n onvergeetlike uitsig oor fynbos en see. Die ontbyt was uit die boonste rakke.

Highly recommended.

Louis and Joy is a super friendly couple with their adorable dachshund and cat. Everything was so neat and the view from the room, living room and balcony is breathtaking. We slept with the sliding door open at night, but closed it later due to the "noise" of the waves! LOL! Beautiful birdlife around the house. Breakfast the next morning was 5 star+! We will definitely go stay there again and definitely for more than one night next time.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Hoogs aanbeveel.

Louis en Joy baie vriendelike egpaar met hul baie oulike worshondjie en kat. Alles was ongelooflik netjies en die uitsig van die kamer, leefarea, balkon asemrowend, ons het die aand met skuifdeur oop geslaap, maar later toegetrek weens die "geraas" van die branders! LOL! Baie mooi "bird life" om die huis. Ontbyt die volgende oggend was 5 ster+! Ons sal beslis weer daar gaan bly en volgende keer beslis meer as net een aand.

At Whale-Phin Guest House's response

Baie dankie vir julle vriendelike woorde, ons waardeer dit regtig baie.
Ons besef die kamers is maar 'n bietjie knap. Onthou dat ons volgende keer nog 'n kamer gratis vir julle gee vir die bagasie.
So kan ons altyd 'n plan maak.
Ek is baie bly julle het die ontbyt geniet.

Gemaklike verblyf met alles wat nodig is.

Die verblyf is gerieflik, stil met alles wat nodig is. Die plekkie is perfek om af te skakel van die dag se werk. Dis heerlik stil, maar heeltemal naby genoeg aan George en Mosselbaai om daar te kan werk, maar weg van die gedruis te kan oornag. Met die opsie om self kos te maak of by 'n restaurant te eet, vind ek die blyplek ideaal. Hierdie keer het ek een aand in Hartenbos gaan eet (lieflike restaurante lekker naby) en die ander aand 'n wegneemete in die kamer geëet. Ontbyt was heerlik! Die "padkos ontbyt" toe ek vroeg moes vertrek was uit die boonste rakke! Baie, baie dankie.

A nice getaway with friendly hosts.

The noises of people moving around the house are something to get used to, but it's minor, and overall we had a nice time!

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

'n Baie lekker wegbreek by gawe gasmense.

Die geluide van mense wat rondbeweeg in die huis is iets om aan gewoond te raak, maar dit is 'n klein sakie en andersins het ons 'n baie lekker tyd hier gehad!

Ons is baie gasvry ontvang en behandel die heeltyd. Dis baie rustig en mens kan 100% ontspan. Ontbyt is heerlik! Baie moeite word gedoen. Ek beveel enige paartjie of enkelpersoon aan om daar te oornag. Ons was vir 3 nagte daar en sal beslis weer gaan.

Boere-gasvryheid.

Baie vriendelike en behulpsame mense. Dit is skoon en netjies. Daar is 'n mooi uitsig oor die see en die voëltjies wat in die tuin baljaar en by die voëlbakkies kom eet. Die ontbyt is smaaklik en word keurig bedien. Dit was baie lekker om die boere-gasvryheid daar te beleef.

Wonderful views and big room.

We stayed in the Lavender room and it was nice and big and had a microwave, fridge and kettle which is great for us as we were travelling with our infant. The views are absolutely stunning and Joy is a wonderful lady! My only criticism is that there are rooms above this room as well as next to it and you can hear all the movement upstairs as well as people talking in the room next door.

It is a cosy place, but very narrow.

The place is nice but very narrow for 2 people + luggage(not enough space) and as the breakfast room is in front of your door, no one can sleep longer then 7. very nice view!! for people who like a familiar atmospehre
