It was a pleasure and pure luxury to live in the private villa. The villa is a designer's jewel and walking around the house and looking at the little and bigger precious designs of lamps, chairs, tableware etc. is just like living in a deco magazine. The atmosphere is like staying at a friend's home, there is nothing like being...

In my recent review of Private Villa, De Kelders, I ended with these portent words: “Private Villa is not a once-only place – very definitely, “We’ll be back!” Little did we know or realise that we would be back - within a matter of weeks!

Everything at De Kelders will reaffirm why South Africa/ns are renowned for their hospitality. A warmer, friendlier place will be hard to find. Location - De Kelders is situated close to many eco attractions without being ‘in the eye of the storm’. If you need peace and quiet this is the place for you, but if you need action, this...

It was by far the best accommodation during our honeymoon. The villa is very nicely decorated, with a very good taste. Our room was very comfortable, great mattress and an awesome jacuzzi and direct access to the pool. We were able to spot so many whales and it is very convenient to go white shark diving, which by the way...

One of the most welcoming places we've ever stayed at. A brilliant location coupled with a truly relaxed atmosphere really helps you to enter the holiday mode.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
2014/2015/2016 TRIPADVISOR NO 1 in the Gansbaai and Overberg for speciality accommodation. The house is neither a B&B or a guest house. It is a villa and a haven for the discerning traveller, who understands quality, stillness and privacy. Acclaimed by ELLE Decoration, House&Leisure, Conde Nast House&Garden and Gourmet, the villa offers the luxury of privacy. Three large bedrooms only, a 150m lounge with library of magazines, books, music and films. Large fireplace for the winter nights. Large garden with secluded, private, heated salt water pool. The 80m open terrace with beautiful views of the village and Walker Bay is secluded and offers the perfect hideaway for reading. The ocean is 200 steps away. Our breakfasts are special and our pre-booked home cooked regional dinners are legendary. The owner is an author of cook books. The house in not branded, hence the name private house and can be rented for exclusive use. ... more   less
