We had a fantastic week in the Whale House. The weather was terrific but also the views and the comfort of the house made it a great stay. Every room has its own bathroom and there is more than enough space in the kitchen, living room and outside. The view is fantastic and you can make great walks along the water from the villa. Bruce also gave us good tips and the contact before, during and after our stay was always very easy. I would certainly recommend it to everyone! Such a great experience when we first entered tis wonderful House and saw the view over the ocean. We spent 5 great days at Whale House and enjoyed ourselves a lot



Oh my goodness, everything was amazing, from our lovely greeting, the comfy house, to the view, the rocks…! Everyone was so kind. Our shark diving was cancelled so we just spent most of the day enjoying the house and views! The kids had a great time exploring the rocks and trail directly in front of the home. We did go out with Marine Dynamics sister company to look for whales but honestly saw more from your front porch!! I can’t thank you enough for a wonderful time! I would love to come back and spend a week on that front porch alone! Thank you Bruce for all the good info before we even got there and thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home!



This house is in a fantastic location. There are lovely balcony areas with direct views the sea. It is well set out and has a lovely thatched roof. 6 of us stayed here and each bedroom was en-suite so worked really well for us. Kitchen facilities are also good and there is a large dining room table to sit at too. The hosts provide a useful information book which gives you details on places to eat and visit.  Wifi was really good.



I have been privileged to spend 8 nights in this magnificent villa which truly lived up to its name! The views across Walker Bay are absolutely spectacular and I saw many whales and dolphins (often from my bed.) Some mornings I could clearly hear the whales even before it was light enough to see them. I loved every moment of my stay here, which brought me tranquility and food for the soul. I will definitely be back!



This house is in a fantastic location and looks directly out onto the sea. There are lovely balcony areas to enjoy the view at both breakfast and night time. It is spacious and well set out and has a lovely thatched roof. 6 of us stayed here (all adults) and each bedroom was en-suite so worked really well for us. Kitchen facilities are also good and there is a large dining room table to sit at too. The hosts provide a useful information book which gives you details on places to eat and visit. We visited one of the restaurants and had a really nice time. Wifi was really good and collecting the keys was easy (as was leaving the property).


Wij (een familie met 2 kinderen) hebben 4 dagen verbleven in de Whale Huys. In een woord; geweldig!! Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien (onder andere BVN en WiFi), schoon en veilig. Een goed ontvangst en rondleiding. Eigenaar Bruce helpt je met tips etc. Wij hadden veel geluk met het weer en heel veel geluk met het spotten van walvissen. Waarschijnlijk hebben we de eerste 2 walvissen van het seizoen gezien vanaf ons eigen terras. Er is genoeg te doen in de omgeving. Paardrijden hebben we gedaan op de White Water Farm. Kortom, wij komen zeker nog een keer terug!!



Everything about this house is amazing, from the easy communication and great tips and beautifully designed house. We absolutely loved our stay here, and even saw a whale from the house. The views can only be described as majestic. I look forward to my next visit!



die Lage des Hauses an der Küste ist phenomenal. Wir hatten die Waale mit ihren Jungen direkt vor unsere Nase die Restaurantemfehlungen aus der Gästemappe sind aller sehr gut gewesen”



Whale Huys is an incredible place! It is in a beautiful location with a magnificent view of Walker Bay. The home is both luxurious and relaxing. We saw Southern Right Whales breaching the water multiple times and seals playing in the waves almost immediately. We loved the area which is dotted with vineyards and fenbos landscapes. We spent a great day exploring historic Elim and hiking at close by Farm 215. Dinner at Farm 215 was truly lovely with home prepared gourmet food! There is nearby Great White Shark cage diving and a penguin colony. Our stay was a highlight of our Cape Town visit from the US



De ligging van het huis is fantastisch! We hebben genoten van de walvissen en dolfijnen vlak voor het huis. Het is ook een heerlijke omgeving om te wandelen



Views that can only be described as the windows of God! Perfectly located guest house with services and facilities that are fit for royalty. The house is extremely comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Absolutely everything is thought of, through the experience designed. Luxurious bedrooms with spectacular views.

The beach and dune nature trails are at the doorstep of the balcony, that leads to majestic caves. Probably one of the best sunrises I’ve seen! Highly recommended.



Watching whales, dolphins, seals, birds, the changing colours, swimming, braaing…. We enjoyed sunny weather at the pool, rainy weather inside watching Showmax with the most beautiful flames in the fire place, and cloudy weather walking on the cliff path.

We cooked wonderful meals in the kitchen, my partner worked out in the gym whilst I made good use of the office area, and our dogs completely relaxed. Everything one can ask for, is provided.

The main thing about this house is that we felt wanted. Bruce really wants his guests to experience everything he loves about Whale Huys and surrounds. He shares the house with you in a way that makes you feel thoroughly welcome.
