We stayed there for two nights, it felt like a cozy and warm home. The lady owner got me protea to carry home with me, just because I said that I loved it. Thank you & thanks to Barry too.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Harbour Vue Guest House. Such a beautiful house with tranquility and the ocean in front. We liked the mountain side room. More quiet and private. Barry and the staff really took care of us like we were at home. It's only a bit far to the center, so if you want to drink a lot of wine for dinner, it would be better to arrange a cab in the evening. Breakfast was fantastic!

Room Tip: More quiet and cheaper is the mountain side, abalone. We liked it a lot. But if you want an oceanvie...

We had a great stay at Harbour Vue. The room was great and the sea view spectacular.

Barry was very helpful, good humoured and offered great advice on when and where etc.

I'd recommend eating out at the local fish restaurant (the smaller of the two nearby).

On leaving we spent the morning whale spotting and on return to grab our bags, Barry served us coffee and helped with directions.

You don't always get that helpful friendly service at more pricey places, so on that basis it's 5/5 for Harbour Vue.

Thanks Barry for a great stay.

We stayed here on our recent trip to south Africa and found Barry the perfect host. The walk to town to see the whales was about 40minutes but a lovely coastal road and the whales didn't disappoint. We ate at the harbour restaurants and drove there - great seafood.
The only downside I can find is that there is no door on the bathroom between the bedroom and the loo. Sadly, I like my privacy in this department or I would have given Harbour View 5 stars

We spent two nights in the Southern Right room at this excellent Guest House. We were greeted by Barry, who was very helpful, and taken through the house with it's lovely works of art, to a splendid room with a glorious view of the ocean. It is actually possible to lie in bed and whale watch!The bed was very comfortable with high quality linen, two easy chairs were placed by the sliding doors which overlooked the ocean to maximise the view.

The bathroom was superb, spa bath, huge glass screened shower and his and hers wash basins. Wardrobe space was plentiful. Everything was spotlessly clean.

The best part for us was the well appointed lounge area next to our room, it had a welcoming fire, board games and TV, a lovely space to relax after a long day out and about.

Breakfast was superb, served at a large communal table,fresh fruits, yoghurt, cereal, selection of breads and croissants plus a full cooked breakfast.

The owner, who also owns a deli in town, was totally charming and very friendly and chatted about the area over breakfast.Nothing was too much trouble.She alerted us to whales she had spotted during breakfast and we could see them from the breakfast area.

The web site and photographs do not do this Guest House justice as it is difficult to capture class and finesse, it truly is superb, it was a pleasure to stay there.
