August 2017


Review by Zandra Quinn (UK)

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. Very cold and 2 heaters (and extra blankets) in bedrooms not effective - had a fire each night but very difficult house to heat.

But close short walk to the sea and adjacent Walker Bay nature reserve beautiful. Would recommend "Coffee on the rocks" for coffee/ food. De Kelders is a hidden gem and few tourists compared to Hermanus.

Review by Cathy Oschmann (Cape Town)

My daughter and friends had a really enjoyable time and found the facility was alot more than they expected.
Very spacious and neat and with an absolutely beautiful view, they were just prepared to sit back and
chill in the pleasant surroundings. Were very sorry to have stayed such a short time and will definitely be back

Very Good

Review by Louis Van Rensburg (Potchefstroom)

Spacious and neat. Nice view of sea and Hermanus. Quiet area yet close to main part of town. Great to explore from. Whales stunning and can be viewed from stoep.

Review by Denzil (Cape Town)

Very spacious and neat accommodation. Lots of space for 3 and 5 year old boys to ride on strider riders when not out exploring. Very thankful for no smoking in house. Very quiet and safe area. Had a "Whale" of a time and saw many Whales. Will definitely be back.

Review by Ginny Miller (UK)

It was a great base for exploring the area. The house was beautiful and in a very quiet location, off the main streets. A vew meters from the house is a beautiful beach cove. Very comfortable accommodation with great facilities, including table tennis. We will be back for whale season.
