“The location is great! Guppy Huys 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
“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 coordinating arrival and departure. We would stay there again.”   Joshua
“We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Guppy Huys. 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
