We stayed at the Whale of a View for 2 nights in February 2012. This was our first visit to South Africa staying in a number of Guest Houses on our 3 week tour, and this was the most beautifully quirky accommodation of them all. The bedroom and guest room was adorned with an incredible collection of vintage paraphernalia, ranging from early radios, wind up gramophones, dress models and numerous musical instruments.
The views from the Bedroom and Guest room are amazing. Zelda and her daughter Inga were very welcoming and made every effort to ensure our stay was enjoyable, and Caroline thanks for the lovely breakfast and the extra helping of lovely fresh green figs.
If you are looking something a little different from the norm, then the Whale of a View is highly recommended.
