About Whale Waters Lodge

Whale Waters' Self-Catering Lodge is situated on the De Kelders cliffs overlooking Walker Bay, well-known for its world renowned whale watching. A short walk (100m) through the Duiwelsgat Nature Reserve will lead you to the secluded Stanford Beach suitable for swimming and kayaking.

De Kelders is nestled on the coast just before the fishing village of Gansbaai - which became famous for its Great White Sharks - on the Danger Point peninsula in the Overberg region only two hours, 160km from Cape Town.

This magnificent Guest Lodge has six bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Each room has breathtaking sea views and private balconies ideal to do whale watching from and to enjoy sun downer cocktails. Whale Waters' Guest Lodge has an unobstructed view of the ocean and coastline stretching from the white sand dunes of "Die Plaat", Hermanus and on a clear day - Cape Point is visible.


Whale Waters' Self Catering Lodge is a three storey house with an open plan lounge and dining area. It has a built-in braai for those lovely South African “Braais” (barbecue) leading out to the veranda and a heated swimming pool - all overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Each of the 6 en-suite bedrooms have lock-up safes and air-conditioning.

My Fiance and I got married at Whale Waters Guest Lodge on the 3rd of April 2010, on our arrival the caretaker Jenny welcomed us and the over-all feeling was breath takingly beautiful. The facilities in and around Whale Waters Guest Lodge are absolutely amazing !!! Whale Waters Guest Lodge is fully equipped, the finishes to die for, and the attention to detail STUNNING ! ! Our wedding took place right on the balcony overlooking the splendours of God's creation, I would rate Whale Waters Guest Lodge 'self catering' Guest Lodge as nothing other than ***** Five star accommodation ! I would love to thank Tanja Lourens the owner for all her hard work in taking extra care with the interior !!! It was simply amazing !!
