Review by Sue Carruthers (Lusaka)

Fabulous view to wake up to. Birds and lapping waves soothe lazy afternooons and evenings. Ilse and Lorna are very kind and warm and unobtrusive.

Review by Joseph And Cornelia Goossens (Voerendaal The Netherlands)

We stayed in Whalesounds for the second time. The first was in 2009. It was again a wonderful holiday. Ben and Lorna are very friendly, helpfull and caring people. We felt us really at home. It was cold and wet during our stay. Our host came with extra blankets because he was afraid that it was to cold.
The views are amazing and the location perfect.
We strongly recommend Whalesounds! If possible we will once return in summer.

Review by Gary And Sheryl Human (East London)

We spent a week at whalesounds and had a marvelous time. The venue is spacious, clean and very comfortable. The view was out of this world. Our hosts Lorna and Ben were wonderful. Ben was very helpful and very friendly. We will definately stay at Whalesounds again.

Review by Jaeger (Germany)

Just the facts:
Without any kind of service. Just the advice at arrivel, to save the electricity becauce owners rate can increace. The window of the toilett is to close by a broomstick. No housekeeping, no change of towls. Late in the evening we got the call to leave very early in the next morning, because the next guests are coming at nine o clock a.m.. On departureday, the intrancedoor was wide open the whole time. No concern of the baboons any more. (It seems to us, go out)
Old owners very often don't have any knowledge how to handle guests well.

Review by Arlene Lloyd (Cape Town)

Thank you Ben & Lorna, for an absolutely quiet, relaxing stay.
Our room had everything and more, the view is absolutely beautiful.
Both Paul and I enjoyed every moment, thank you Lorna for the rusks, they were absolutely heavenly :O)
Paul's back operation went well, and he has recovered wonderfully.
We will be seeing you soon.

Review by Claudine PEYRE (Toulouse FRANCE)

We spent a perfect quiet week's holiday in Whalesounds with a magnificent view of False Bay and easy access to Simon's Town, Cape Town and many other interesting places in the area.
The bedsitter is spacious and comfortable and Ben and Lorna are very friendly hosts.
