This jewel is situated in the prominent skyline of historic Gansbaai. It is one of the oldest buildings of its size in this fishing Village. It has panoramic views of the Old Harbour and Walker Bay. Built in 1919 the building only exchanged hands from one family to the other twice and renovated in 2017 to suit the needs of the modern traveller. Needless to say this is a unique destination getaway. Whether it is your start to the Garden route or a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Great White Sharks in their natural habitat or shoreline and boat based Whale watching.
This 11 bedroomed Lodge served the town in many different capacities but the one consistent remained hospitality. During school months it was a fully serviced Boarding House complete with three meals and a smoker’s lounge…
First level has a big enclosed veranda where you can spend time looking at the Old Harbour as the boats go out fishing or watch the waves crashing alongside the pier; alternatively you have the market plain to watch life in a small village go by. All the shops is 5 minutes’ walk and the closest restaurant is 50m away!
We took extra care in designing each suite to utilise every inch of space while remaining the integrity of this historic “Dame”, Wi-Fi and all.
Suite 1, 2 and 3 is double rooms with shower and bathroom en suite.
Suite 4, 5 and 6 is more spacious twin rooms with en suite (converts to King Size beds).
Room 7 has two bunk beds with secure locking space, room 8 is a Double Room and room 9 is equipped with a double bunk all intended as backpacking rooms with two bathrooms to share.
Ground floor also has a beautiful veranda and is also the common room where we gather to enjoy breakfast and chef's selection of lunch and/or supper depending on demand and catch of the day. We also have qualified hiking and tourist activity guides so you can trust us to make your stay unforgettable.
A very pleasant stay in your lodge, great food, company and awesome view. Wish you all the best with the lodge.
