“We stayed with our two children girls for four nights. The area is beautiful with big impressive houses along the waterfront. We spotted whales from the house and walking trails almost every day. We also saw a glimpse of dolphins once. The view from the house is absolutely fantastic! We used the pool every day and relaxed on the pool deck. We enjoyed the easiness of the walks in the nature reserve, which is within walking distance of the house. We really hope we can visit  again soon!” Catherine, TripAdvisor
“We had the immense pleasure of spending a few days at Whale Huys Oceanfront Eco Villa very recently. As many have already written it is indeed a lovely house, but for us… to be quite candid… it was all about the glorious, simply stupendous views over Walker Bay. Sweeping! Stunning! Awe-inspiring! WOW! This is a big house suited to a family or (possibly even better) a group of friends. All the bedrooms have wonderful views and are equally attractive in terms of furnishings, fittings and en-suite facilities. So there shouldn´t be any arguments about who gets the best room. The master suite has a larger balcony and is conveniently located at entry-level and the hub of the house. The owner was great to deal with… very quick to respond to any questions and very helpful. A superb all-around experience. Go for it!” Judith, TripAdvisor
“Whale Huys Oceanfront Eco Villa is an incredible place to stay! It is in a beautiful location with a magnificent view of Walker Bay. The home is both luxurious and relaxing all at once. We saw Southern Right Whales breaching the water multiple times and seals playing in the waves. We loved the area which is dotted with vineyards and Fynbos landscapes. We spent a great day exploring historic Elim. Dinner at Farm 215 was truly lovely with home-prepared gourmet food! Our stay was a highlight of our Cape Town visit from the United States.” Gerry, TripAdvisor
