About Whalesounds

The ocean laps right beneath the house which is a favourite spot for the whales to visit every year. Watch them and hear them cavort all day and night (July-November) from your apartment.

The large windows bring the beautiful views right into your room where you can watch the yachts float by or the dolphins play from your bed in the morning. There is no balcony, but there is an outdoor area with a table and chairs, a sun lounger and a mini-braai.

      Superb hospitality from Ilse and family, we felt so welcome. No false marketing on this property, the view is astounding! Keep at least one afternoon free to just stare out the windows at the frolicking whales and active Capetonians!

      We had a lovely stay at Whalesounds for four days in December 2015, part of which was to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. Ilse went out of her way to make it a really special stay for us and was a very gracious host. Whalesounds is an absolutely beautiful spot with stunning sea and coast views. The accommodation itself is comfortable and had pretty much everything we needed. It is very close to all the main peninsula attractions.
