          The host was lovely, and the room immaculate. Loved how close we were to the beach. Few recommendations: I was under the impression we were staying in the self catering cottage. So arriving and being given the room wasn’t a problem. My suggestions would be to include a sink / counter in the kitchen area as well as a two plate stove. Hairdryer in room. Alternatively clearly state that this is a room and consider B&B as it isn’t really equipped for self catering. I would highly recommend Le Whale and understand you have recently added the room - please take it as helpful hints as I am in no way...

          Fantastic stay in self catering so close to the beach. Hearing the waves while in bed was absolute heaven!! Place was neat and clean. I loved the personal touch of rusks for our bedtime snack!!! Just please get Wi-Fi? Oh and the full DSTV package was sure plus for my hubby!!

          We stayed in the Guest Room, which was very clean & comfortable. Although there was a fridge and microwave available, there was no cutlery or crockery, perhaps Laetitia could add 2 each of these for upcoming guests. Laetitia was very welcoming and did offer us a Braai grid to Braai on. The guest room is perfect for staying overnight.
