About Tales of Whales

A quick 45 minute drive from Cape Town International Airport, Tales of Whales Guest house is the perfect choice for the weary traveller or businessman looking for that special ‘Home-Away-From-Home’.

The house is centrally situated in Strand, with close access to all amenities, shops and a short two minute drive to Strand beach, 10 minutes from Gordon’s Bay beach, or a five minute drive to Somerset Mall.


The main house has three private, very spacious and luxurious en suite rooms: Sand Piper with bath en suite, Sea Weed with shower en suite and Driftwood with bath en suite. Driftwood also has a small sun deck attached to the room.

Set in luscious gardens, a tranquil little tea garden can be found under the trees, as well as an inviting, sparkling blue pool for those hot summer days or evenings. There is an outdoor lapa and braai area for the guys (or gals) to show off their cooking skills.

The common area of the house boasts a cosy lounge area where guests can comfortably enjoy a movie, or just relax in front of a warm log fire. We have a dining area where guests may enjoy a visit over dinner – seats eight. Guests may make use of the kitchen and braai area - there is a fridge to store groceries.

For a more private stay, we have a separate cottage: Strandloper Cottage (Afrikaans for beachcomber) which has a shower en suite on the upper level, with a kitchenette and small lounge with a TV downstairs.


We are a self-catering establishment, however, at an extra charge, can arrange breakfasts and dinners and a laundry service. Good deals on tours in and around the Helderberg and Cape Town can also be organised.
