I visited this guesthouse again on my trip to South Africa and I wasn't disappointed. Elaine has kept up the same standards as I found on my previous visit. Dolphinsview is situated on the beachfront and is certainly aptly named as we saw dophins frolicking in the sea everyday, we also saw whales. The rooms are very clean and comfortable...

I have traveled every 3 days to different locations in and around the country, for the last 36 months and I feel it imperative, to write a review, for Dolphins View Guest House, as I have yet to stay at a venue,where the hostess is more friendly, and accommodating, The view is spectacular, the crisp clean sea breeze making you...

I couldn't have been more pleased with this guest house. When I showed up at Elaine's door at 9 pm, I hadn't had dinner yet and was exhausted from an entire day of travel. She took me in and got me sorted with no problems whatsoever. The next morning, I awoke to see the dolphins just offshore, slowly making their...

As we had been there before we used Dolphin's View as a bolthole for our visit to ZA this year. Elaine always has the establishment spick and span and her enthusiasm never changes. We spent a few days there before flying up to Durban for a week and then returned. On this visit we saw dolphins every day practically. Lots...

Dolphins View is a great place to relax, with the sounds of the sea. I saw a total of 5 whales on my second stay and the dolphins feeding just off shore were uncountable. The rooms are spacious well appointed and comfortable and I love the teddies. Elaine is a great host and welcomes guests into her home. Should I...
