"Lovely views, friendly staff, amazingly tasty food, prepared by the Chef. Very impressed by the clean, spacious rooms, and big bathroom with sea views. Definitely worth a visit when in Gansbaai, and value for money."

"It was unique in marine5. We had very relaxing days there. The guest house is very lovingly furnished and the food was very good. The surroundings are very beautiful and the accommodation is directly on the beach. A great view."

"Superb service, one of the most gorgeous rooms we have ever stayed in (the floor to ceiling windows and view are unbelievable) and the food and service (thanks Reggie, Lindi and Bella) was a delight. We loved every minute."

"We had a very wonderful stay in this place. You feel like being part of the Family. Right from the start everything was perfect and we had a very special new years eve. We will never forget that! Breakfast is very good and also the dinner in the evening. We will come back definitely!"
