Full telephone and Internet facilities are available at additional cost.

Property Facilities:
What to do in and around Gordon?s Bay, there is plenty for everyone and we can only give a taste here of what you?ll find on your doorstep. We are in the heart of the winelands so pleanty of fine dinging and wine tasting. There are also several first class golf courses to chose from.
While Gordon?s Bay retains the quaint and traditional atmosphere of the old fishing village it also hosts a fine Yacht Club and there is an abundance of little shops, restaurants and pavement cafes where you can relax in the sun and watch the world go by.
Don?t miss out on a visit to the local seal colony and the chance to meet up with the whales! Boat trips are available from the old harbor. Why not add a touch of extra romance to your stay with a sundowner cruise?
Head out to sea from the old harbor we can arrange deep-sea or Cray fishing trips. Alternatively while away a sunny afternoon fishing from the old harbor.
For those not keen to land their own catch there are excellent local restaurants and many offer first class fresh sea - food.
Hire bicycles or mountain bikes to take in the beautiful scenery and get up close to the lovely flora and fauna. Or just go walking on the mountain trails.
Take a drive along Claren?s Drive. This spectacular scenic coast road is hard to better anywhere!
Visit the local riding stables, they offer scenic rides for beginners and more experienced riders.
Stroll in the beautiful Harold Porter Botanical gardens.
If you seek something a bit more noisy and exciting visit the Biosphere Reserve for eco friendly quad bike trails.

At Monkey Town you can see Lemurs, Chimps, Capuchins, etc.

With all this don?t forget the beaches! Bikini beach is a blue flag beach, ideal for those who want to soak up the sun and take a gentle swim. Gordon?s Bay boasts probably the warmest water in the Western Cape. Visit the Strand for another lovely beach with some fine surfing or take the ten - minute drive to enjoy the long white sandy beaches of Koel-Bay. There are all kinds of water sports available from many local beaches.
*Evening meals and picnic hampers are available at additional cost.

we spent almost 3 weeks at Whale Views - at first at dolphins leap and after a Garden Roue tour also at
dolphins rest. both apartments do offer beautiful views over false bay. we enjoyed our private pool and the quiet and intimate surrounding as well as our charming and very helpful hosts Jane and Graham.
Both apartments are very well equipped and do offer everything we needed during our stay.
As both apartment were fully booked for two days, we had to stay in another apartment in Strand, which was-compared to Whale views -very dissapointing. we were very happy to come back to Whale Views and continue
our wonderful stay in Gordons Bay.
We can recommend Whale Views very much and will come back this year, definitely!
