About A Whispering Whale

Whispering Whale unfortunately does not allow children under the age of 12 or Pets. Jacobsbaai is a lifestyle more than a town. Situated on the West Coast of South Africa, Jacobsbaai has one of the most beautiful and self–fulfilling natural landscapes in Africa.

This quiet Village, also referred to as the “Namaqualand” of the West Coast, with its traditional lime washed houses, is set against a breathtaking coastline with rocky out crops and sandy bays with a cobalt ocean.

Jacobsbaai is ideally situated for excursions throughout the Cape region. The cosmopolitan city of Cape Town, Cape Town International Airport, the Cape Wine Lands, the West Coast National Park, the West Coast Flower Region and many other attractions, are all within easy travelling distance from Jacobsbaai.

Our House has been transformed into three stunning apartments with safe and secure parking. All apartments are fitted with a television, DVD player, DSTV decoder Hi-Fi (bring your own CD's) and electronic safe.

We unfortunately do not allow children under the age of 12, pets or smoking in our apartments.

              Thank you for a wonderful stay. We wish we could have stayed longer. The Southern Right apartment has everything you need. Beautifully decorated, light and airy and a fantastic view. We were warmly welcomed by Leentjie who cooked us a delicious meal on the first night. This place is a must!!!

              My wife and I found the Whispering Whale very comfortable and luxurious. It caters for every need of a tourist. Together with Leentjie's excellent and tasteful food, we would rate Whispering Whale a high 5 Stars.
