Review by Kathy Hill (England)

Stunning setting. All the comforts of home: electric blankets much appreciated on cooler nights. Perfect spot for many whale sightings. We would love to return at any time of the year. Excellent meals at Benguela and Blue Goose. Peter and Kathy, England

Review by Tracey Costello (UK)

We had the most amazing stay at The Look Out. Everything about it was perfect. The apartment was absolutely gorgeous and very well equipped...we did not want for anything. The location was divine. It was situated overlooking the sea and there was a lovely big balcony where we spent a lot of time gazing out to sea and whale spotting. We were in our element.
We wished we could have stayed for longer and definitely would return given the chance. Family and friends were very jealous when we showed them the photos!!!!

Review by L Grootboom (South Africa)

Thank you so much for the wonderful accommodation you provided to us. We had an awesome time. The view and eating out on the deck. It’s lovely and modern and we fitted in nicely. Loved the paintings and theme.

Review by Liz Peterkin (England)

Hi Mailie, just wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay at the Lookout, we loved it, was extremely comfortable & well equipped. We will definitely be returning to De Kelders and the Lookout. It was such a wonderful experience and one we are very eager to repeat. We miss the beach and watching the sunset from the rocks, we saw dolphins every day! Was so magical, I shall be cherishing the memories as we brace ourselves for snow this weekend.

Thank you again and we will definitely recommend your place to others.

We are back in Bloem after a wonderful time in the Cape! And I want to thank you for the absolutely wonderful time we had in your apartment! We enjoyed everything - the view, the whales, and definitely your beautiful apartment!

Review by Valdi Strauss (Johannesburg)

A beautifully furnished apartment that comfortably slept the family. The balcony's cliff-edge view over all of Walker Bay makes one feel part of the whales lolling or breaching below. The kids had loads of fun riding bikes on the quiet roads, and plenty of walking paths for the grownups. It was really nice to be within walking distance of the nearby restaurant when tired of cooking. Highly recommended!

Review by Charleen Shearer (Johannesburg)

We found this to be a place where you can put your feet up and just relax. It has everything you need and shops are not far. A breathtaking view from the balcony of the ocean; you are guaranteed to spot a whale in season or dolphins and seals. We had lovely afternoon walks along the cliffs and my partner even did a stunning hike in the marine reserve national park next door. A definite must!!!

Review by Norma Green (Johannesburg)

We had a fantastic time in this tranquil setting, yet still found it to be within easy travelling distance of many local places of interest. It was wonderful to sleep with the sound of the sea and the whales in your ears rather than the urban traffic! A lovely holiday, thank you!
