Puik plek op die see.

Shark cage diving saam met White Shark Projects is 'n moet. Dit is 'n ongelooflike ervaring en die mense daar is ook great.

Ongelooflike wegbreek naweek.

Ons naweek was ongelooflik. See is letterlik net oor die pad. Het walvisse gesien wat alles net soveel meer spesiaal gemaak het. Sal Whalescape enige tyd aanbeveel.

Great value for money in stunning location.

The apartment looks over the ocean and the view and the sunsets are magnificent. De Kelders is the nicest place to be in the Gansbaai area. The flat is a family holiday home so it is very well equipped and the linen is good. Overall very comfortable and great value for money. We were met on time at the apartment by the agent but she did not spend any time showing us around the flat. We battled to work out the folding doors and blinds. She could have saved us time.

Fantasties.

Fantasties, uitsig oor see. Uitleg van woonstel pas uitstekend. Hoofslaapkamer kyk uit op die see en jy hoor see heel nag. Glasvensters op balkon is 'n wenner saam met bankkie om na see te kyk. Spesiale dankie aan Corrie en haar man. Ons het 'n wonderlike 10 dae vakansie gehad. Kan die plek hoog aanbeveel.

Hierdie vakansie woonstel is wow, ons sal verseker weer hier bespreek. Dit het 'n pragtige uitsig en 'n huislike atmosfeer.

Hierdie woonstel is baie gerieflik en De Kelders is lekker sentraal geleë om die omgewing te verken. Ons het regtig baie lekker gebly en sal enige tyd weer daar wil bly en die plek aanbeveel by familie en vriende. Dit is jammer ons kan nie halwe punte gee nie. Wat betref kliëntediens wil ek graag versoek dat die huurders van die eenheid in kennis gestel word van die permanente inwoners wat onder hierdie woonstel bly se gekla oor elke geluid, selfs dat ons te hard loop en dan sal dit gaaf wees om die loadshedding-skedule of -tye per SMS te ontvang. Netheid - sal ek 4.5 wou gee. Ek wil voorstel dat aangesien daar nie skoonmaakdienste, wat ek verkies, is nie, skoonmaakmiddels vir die braai, bad en toilette deel vorm van die res van die skoonmaaktoerusting. Dis produkte waarmee niemand wil reis nie.

Dit was aangenaam, rustige atmosfeer.

Eienaar was vriendelik en baie behulpsaam. Die Huis was baie goed equipped. Met 'n pragtige uitsig oor die see. Sou net graag wou hê daar moet 'n strand wees om op te gaan loop.

The view is everything.

Spacious and cannot ask for a better view. Excellent service from the hostess who had to unlock us. Beds in guest rooms a little hard and wind rattling doors, but nothing that a patch in the door couldn't fix. WiFi for the teenagers will be nice. However, will recommend the place at any time.

Die uitsig is alles.

Ruim en kan nie vir 'n beter uitsig vra nie. Uitstekende diens van die gasvrou wat vir ons moes oopsluit. Beddens in gastekamers bietjie hard en wind laat deure ratel, maar niks wat 'n lappie in die deur nie kon regmaak nie. WiFi vir die tieners sal gaaf wees. Sal egter die plek enige tyd aanbeveel.

The view is great.

The apartment is very comfortable with lovely ocean views. We had numerous confrontations with the downstairs neighbour because even though we payed for the unit, he was acting very childish. Except for that, we had a lovely stay.

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

Uitsig pragtig.

Die woonstel is baie gemaklik, lieflike see-uitsig gewees. Daar was verskeie konfrontasies met die buurman onder die woonstel omrede ek voel ons het wel betaal vir die woonstel en ons is almal volwassenes is en hy baie kinderagtig opgetree het. So behalwe vir dié onsmaaklikheid was dit andersins 'n gemaklike woonstel.

'n Wegbreek wat vir jou een van die beste uitsigte verskaf, met 'n extra dosis van rustigheid en natuurskoon.

As 'n familie het ons die verblyf terdeë geniet. Die woonstel is ruim en het een van die mooiste uitsigte in die omgewing. Ons was gelukkig om elke oggend gegroet te word deur 'n familie dolfyne wat verbygeswem het, sowel as 'n groot aantal walvisse wat 'n bietjie in die baai kom rus het. Die beste aanduiding van hoe lekker ons gekuier het, was toe die traantjies gerol het van my broer se dogtertjie toe hulle die Sondag vertrek het terug huis toe.

Outstanding views.

All the above statements remain 5 but a little disappointed in the equipment in the kitchen. No bread knife, no paper towels etc. It would also have been great to have easy chairs on the balcony to relax and just look at that amazing view. The balcony glass windows were fantastic. Thanks for a great long weekend.

Gerieflike en netjiese verblyf met 'n ongelooflike uitsig. Hoop ek kan eendag in walvisseisoen weer besoek.

Die agent was baie behulpsaam en vriendelik. Al probleem wat ons gehad het was dat die gasbraaier op die stoep slegs een brander gehad het wat werk.

Apartment and view was nice, but the person we dealt with made us feel very unwelcome.

I would recommend whalescape anytime to anyone. The apartment and the view is breathtaking. Nice for a relaxing get away. However, the person I collected the key from was not friendly and made us feel very unwelcome. She phoned every morning early, first to complain about a bathroom light that was burning through the night and then the next morning to remind us to be out by 10. Believe it or not but on the dot 10 o'clock she was there with her cleaning crew to collect the keys. I don't have a problem with the rules but her tone of voice made us feel like we were her children. Not to mention there are no braai facilities at the apartment, except for a gas braai with no gas. We had to "braai" our meat in the oven. Will consider visiting again when Leona is replaced by a person that can interact with all races and someone with more customer service experience.

Was regtig uitstekend!

Netjiese, goed toegeruste woonstel met wonderlike see-uitsig. Die groot stoep het vensterpanele wat kan oop en toe maak met deursienbare blinders om die middagson uit te hou. Walvisse kom naby genoeg aan die kant om sommer van die stoep af mooi foto's te kan neem en te kan hoor hoe bulk hulle. Ons gaan beslis in die toekoms weer van die woonstel gebruik maak.

Lekker rustig en uit die stadsgewoel - wat meer kan 'n mens vra!

Uitstekende ligging met uitsig oor die see en pragtige sonsondergange. Op die koop toe nog heelwat walvisse gesien! Netjiese verblyfplek wat alles bied. Badkamer by hoofslaapkamer bietjie klein en toegang tot stort kan 'n probleem vir groter persone wees. Dus sal stort-fasiliteite in 2de badkamer 'n aanbeveling wees. Hou baie van die balkon met glas - jammer die 2de glasdeur kon nie oopmaak nie. Kon dus nie die see-klanke hoor nie. Die bank op stoep is 'n lekker plekkie om te ontspan met 'n boek in die hand of net uitstaar oor die see.

Dit was wonderlik! Baie spasie in woonstel en mooiste uitsig. Ons het elke dag walvisse gesien en die kinders het dit ook geniet. Daar selfs 'n tafeltjie en stoeltjies vir hulle en die stoep is veilig vir kleintjies. Bitter goeie waarde vir geld! Kan nie wag om weer te gaan nie!

Baie aangenaam.

Ons het vir vyf dae by Whalescape gebly en die verblyf was baie aangenaam. Van die stoep af kon ons 'n walvis afneem wat uit die water spring en baljaar. Neem jou baaiklere saam, selfs in die winter. Die woonstel is 'n bietjie koud in die winter. Ek stel voor hulle installeer 'n lugversorger. Ons besoek nie sommer dieselfde plek meer as een keer nie, maar Whalescape was beslis die moeite en geld werd.
