Eco Friendly Efforts

In all that we do, we try to have as light a touch as possible on the environment while still providing a comfortable and relaxing stay. The eco-wood deck is manufactured from recycled plastic rather than unsustainably harvested hard woods. As much as possible we choose for environmentally friendlier products, including the Afriearth shampoos, soaps and other amenities. The solar geysers provide most of our hot water and this is supplemented by an electric boiler. If at any point you need more hot water you can press the red buttons on the far left of the controllers in the cupboard in the third bedroom (two single beds). This will switch on the electric supplementary heaters. They turn off again when they reach 55 degrees. The lighting at Guppy Huys is also fitted with low-energy LED lighting and the slow combustion fireplace is designed to optimize heat while reducing the amount of wood used. All of our new appliances, like the dishwasher, oven and refrigerator are A rated (or better) for low energy consumption.

Area Information

The quiet upmarket neighbourhood of De Kelders borders on the pristine Walker Bay nature conservancy that extends along the coast all the way to Hermanus.

In Stamford you will find a cheese farm, honey producer, charcuterie, wineries, a brewery, a distillery, river activities and even a big cat sanctuary. The area is a food lover's paradise.

Loadshedding Facilities

What is loadshedding? It refers to the temporary suspension of electricity provided by Eskom, South Africa's electricity provider, to reduce consumption and thereby the load on the national grid. To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.

Verified reviewvery good

The house has a wonderful view of Walker Bay so sitting on the verandah, taking in all the sea activity and surrounding beauty is an excellent way to spend time. We were comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Thank you.

Verified reviewvery good

We had a very nice stay at Guppy Huys. Leigh met us as agreed and she was very friendly and helpful. The location is great – on a quiet street but just 5 minutes from Gansbaai which has some nice restaurants, supermarkets and all the basics we needed for our stay. It was great to wake up to the sound of the birds and the waves and the amazing ocean views. It was just a shame we couldn’t stay longer. Thank you Leigh, Eelco and Bruce.
