At Whale-Phin is a log house with wooden floors covered with carpets with double underlays, sound above may still be heard. The broken lock is fixed. The room was painted four monthes ago.

The hosts were very nice, we felt very welcome. Breakfast was great, the views from the house are lovey and they had a cute dog called Zara, there's lots of nice birds in the garden. Rooms are simple but clean with basic facilities.

At Whale-Phin Guest House is out of town in a safe and tranquil area. We are situated on a dune overlooking the bay of Mossel Bay. Enjoy the unspoilt ocean and “Fynbos” views. From your room spot whales in season, dolphins and plenty of garden birds all year round. Five minutes walk from clean and safe beach. Wireless internet, e-mail, fax and credit card facilities. Come and sleep to the music of the ocean. Do a "Walk with the Lions" nearby.
