We had booked for one night in self catering studios. On arrival we found that shark cage diving tours were cancelled for next two days due to bad weather. We were met by two ladies Ria and Susan exuding warmth and genuine pleasure. Since the self catering studios were not available they upgraded us to rooms with breakfast. The rooms...

A truly home away from home feeling. Ria and Susan were exceptional. We travelled 2 families with kids and took the studios. They were all interconnecting and that was the best part as the kids got a room for themselves. Rooms were nice and cosy and very clean. Breakfast had personal touch and Susan was ready to make anything we...

The place was spotless and clean. The service by all the ladies involved in the running of the guest house was amazingly professional, polite and very friendly. The rooms are not extremely luxurious but they had all one needs to enjoy a relaxing holiday in this beautiful part of the world. Susan made it feel like a home away from...

Although the guest house is not situated in the centre of Gansbaai it is a great location for being near Kleinbaai harbour where all the shark dive boats leave from. Our friends and I stayed for 2 nights and found Susan and Roelof most hospitable and could not do enough for us and provided us with lots of information reagarding...

My brother and I stayed for two nights. It is an excellent value for the quality lodging and the friendly, helpful staff. Susan even taught us some Afrikaans! The staff helped us plan our trip forward with suggestions, bookings and travel advice. The location is very close to the shark diving boats and just a short walk to some great...

We stayed 9 days at Aire del Mar Guest House during the December 2012 holidays. We had a warm welcom. The rooms are spacious and clean. Kleinbaai is a clean and nice place, people were very friendly. it is sarrounded by beautiful places. It was our first time we visited Kleinbaai and it was a wonderful experience.

The Guesthouse is placed a little bit of on a lonely street i Kleinbaai, but if you are here for the Shark Diving it is the place to stay, because Gansbaai/Kleinbaai does not have much more to offer (not for me anyway). The owner set me up for a day activity, Shark Diving, without me knowing with which company/organizer. It...

I think we have stayed at Aire Del Mar at least 7 to 8 times in peak season over Christmas and at a quieter time. We always stay in there B&B but there is self catering and a back packers section. The reason we also go back if we go to that area is that it is a superb experience...
