We had the opportunity to stay in Whale Huys at the beginning of July 2015 for 5 nights. From our initial enquiry and the response received from Bruce, I realized that this would be a special stay. Everything was well organized by Bruce who made sure that we received all the information needed to make the most of the 5 days well in advance.
As we arrived we received a warm welcome from Jenene who was waiting for us to explain all the things we needed to know. She was superb throughout the whole week in ensuring we had everything we needed and ready to help with any questions we had.
The property is perfectly situated on the sea front with magnificent views from each room across the whole of Walker Bay. We thought we would have to go out on a boat to see the Whales but were pleasantly surprised when we saw whales the next morning roaming around right in front of the house in the bay. It made it further easier to follow them with the telescope and binoculars which was available in the house.
The kitchen is well equipped and it was a pleasure cooking in the open plan while still enjoying the views. The house has everything that you will need; Swimming Pool with outside shower (for the summer) Barbeque with all the utensils, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, study with printer and WiFi across the house.
All rooms were extremely spacious and the bathrooms were all modern and clean with fantastic showers in all of them.
A nice touch for the winter was the fire place (used every night) and the under floor heating.
It is also conveniently situated with a nature walkway right in front of the house, shops close by and a short drive to (10min) to Gansbaai. It was also a central point to explore Hermanus, Stanford, Cape Agulhas and the many wine farms in the region.
I want to thank Bruce and Jenene in making this an unforgettable holiday and we most certainly hope to get the opportunity to come back again one day.
