About The Oystercatcher

The Oystercatcher is a self catering beach house, perched on the magnificent cliffs of De Kelders in the quaint fishing village of Gansbaai. Breathtaking, unobstructed views of the ocean and mountains can be seen from almost every room.


The spacious house is furnished with Cape Cottage style furniture and sleeps 6 people. The three bedrooms have laminated wooden floors, each with sea views and crisp white linen.

Two of the rooms have king size beds. The third room has two single beds.
There are two bathrooms, one with a shower and the other with a bath.
Towels are provided.


A built in braai on the patio, large colour TV with DSTV dish (bring own decoder and card), cosy fireplace, and double lock up garages further ensures a comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, conventional oven, fridge/freezer and all other utensils.


The Oystercatcher is located in the second row from beachfront and within a short walking distance of a pristine nature/marine reserve with white sandy beaches and large open caves of archaeological interest. There are only 4 plots between us and the reserve.

There is a beautiful hiking trail right in front of the house that winds along the rugged, fynbos lined cliffs next to the ocean. This is a perfect vantage point from where to watch the whales play in season (July to November) as they come right up to the cliff edge.


Visit nearby Kleinbaai Harbour (10 km away) to participate in great white shark cage diving, boat based whale watching or pleasure cruises to the seal colony at Dyer Island.

We are situated 180 km from Cape Town, 40 km from Hermanus and 5 km from Gansbaai Town where fresh line fish is always available at the active harbour.

Please note:

There is a 'no smoking inside the house' policy.
No pets are allowed.

Basic but that is reflected by price. Several leaks in roof and bathroom during heavy rain. Some cutlery and lightbulb missing. Musty smell on entering. ...
