“The location is great! Guppy Huys Oceanside Eco Bungalow is on a quiet street only five minutes from Gansbaai which has some nice restaurants, supermarkets and all the basics we needed for our stay. It was wonderful to wake up to the sound of the waves and the amazing view of the ocean It was just a shame we couldn’t stay longer.”  Pieter 
“Simply beautiful! The accommodation was safe and secure and fully equipped. The simplicity of the interior and the scenic garden and outdoors were perfectly in sync! Checking in and out was a breeze and there was no pressure at all as arrangements were made in advance. The manager made us feel at home. We appreciated the itinerary prepared for us although most of our time we were captivated by the whales seen from the balcony and the blue-headed lizards spotted in the garden. They were fascinating! Being surrounded by so much beauty and splendour, what more could one ask for! We would certainly visit again to explore some more.”  Happy Guest
“We loved our stay at Guppy Huys. What an outstanding spot. The views are incredible. We spent most of our time on the deck and in the delightfully fun hot tub. The house was as we expected and more. It was very well equipped and the appliances were modern and functional. We will definitely be recommending it to all of our friends!”  Satisfied Visitor
“What a wonderful stay with a view of the whales in the bay. The comfortable porch looks right out into the bay. There is direct access to the beach hiking trail which was a great surprise. Both the owner and manager were very responsive, which helped coordinate arrival and departure. We would stay there again.”   Joshua
“We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Guppy Huys Oceanside Eco Bungalow. It was exactly what we were looking for, a quiet escape by the sea with friends. The ocean views are amazing and we even saw whales directly from the porch. The house itself is simple but comfortable with everything we needed. During the day we went on a wine tasting tour and for a hike, then in the evening we built a cosy fire in the woodstove, had a braai and played some board games.”  Deneys
