What a wonderful guest house in De Kelders with superb hosts. Room was beautiful. Otto went out of his way to walk me along the cliffs and made every attempt to get us into the cave, but to no avail, the water was just too high. Gina is a wealth of information and has such a lovely personality. I will definately return. THANK YOU FOR YOUR WARM HOSPITALITY!

Room Tip: They are all lovely and sunny!

As the author of "Adventure Hikes in the Cape Peninsula" and "Off the Beaten Track", I stayed here with three friends while doing a review of the Perlemoen Trail. The breakfast was delicious and freshly prepared by Otto while Gina gave us information about the area. Freshly brewed filter coffee and orange juice washed down eggs of our choice,after freshly chopped fruit salad with muesli and yogurt.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room

Lovely place, friendly people, great location. Stayed here with friends while doing the Perlemoen Trail. Otto joined us on all the hikes and shared his knowledge of all the seacaves in the area.

Room Tip: All look great. Also kid's rooms for families.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Haus Giotto Guest House. The room was immaculately clean and also spacious, with microwave and small kitchen corner and nice terrace outside. The hosts were very friendly and the breakfast was great. The house is situated in a nice residential location, with views of the sea. Unfortunately we were in the wrong season to spot whales but we will definetely come back. Thank you Gina and Otto for your hospitality.

De Kelders is a very quiet neighbourhood after the hustle and bustle of ... anywhere! Gina and Otto were extremely friendly and helpful hosts, giving us guidance on the local eateries and what the area had to offer in general and we were only sad that we had so little time there as we had to leave very early next morning (before breakfast!) to rendezvous in Kleinsbaai for some shark diving. Gina and Otto were there to wave us off at 6.30am!!

We weren't there during the whale season but the peace and tranquillity of the area was evident from the moment the car engine stopped and the relaxed nature with which Gina and Otto carried themselves was a reflection of the area. Their dog was very good-natured too!

The room was spacious, clean and had a very well-equipped kitchen, ideal for those wanting a self-catering stay (apart from the provided breakfast). We just didn't have enough time there to really appreciate our surroundings but ... we know a good B & B when we see one!

We hope to go back one day.

We stayed one night at Haus Giotto, but we wished we had more accomodations like this in South Africa. The rooms are complete, clean, tasteful furnished and well situated. Nice restaurants are close and from the balcony whales can be seen (jumping!!).

Gina and Otto are very friendly and helpful, so your stay in Gansbaai will be as pleasant as possible.

Don't hesitate...just book this accomodation.

My husband and I booked Haus Giotto last minute and they were available to accommodate us, no problem. They are perfect location if you are going shark diving in Gansbaai or if you are going whale watching in Hermanus. Their home is lovely, well kept, and very clean. They gave us great directions and advice on what to see/do in the area. We got in very late and they were both up to greet us, which was very sweet. The only recommendation I have is to remind your guests that a window might be open...we had no idea the window in our room was open and froze all night - my poor husband got a cold :( But this is probably more our fault, by getting there late and not realizing the window was open. We highly recommend staying here - the owners and property are truly great!
