The place is nicely built on a hill and the view from the balcony is just marvelous. The warm welcome from Sandra and Reindhart feels you right away at home. The room has a huge bathroom and very comfortable bed. For us, it was just the perfect place to stay in Gansbaii.

From the moment we reserved our room, we felt like we were going to stay with friends. Reinhard reached out to us to see what we wanted to do during our stay. Thanks to his excellent advice we were able to experience it all. He advised to book the eco tour and shark dive first in case of bad weather....

The location in de Kelders is brilliant. Facing Hermanus bay you may enjoy a wonderful sun down. But what makes the difference is the friendliness and the personal service of the owners themselve. From reception onwards you feel at home. Wonderful rooms, nicely decorated and a breathtaking view from the main terrace made our stay a real memory. And having...

Spent only one night in this fantastic guest house while visiting Gansbaai. We had an idea to go shark diving but all the boats left too early in the morning. We chose very tasty breakfast on the terrace, enjoying wonderful view. We got first class service and felt very welcome. We had a nice suite upstairs, with a large balcony....

Spent two short breaks with my son and wife respectively on different occasions during September 2016. Breathtaking views, beautifully appointed rooms, the friendliest smiles and very attentive service. Hostess Sandra is a mine of information about local places and happenings. Highly recommended.

Adorable guesthouse with great personal service! The hosts emailed instantly once I booked with suggestions and advice- they are too happy to help with anything. When we arrived after a long drive, we were met by the friendly hosts, a glass of wine and a thoughtful introduction to the lodge. We spotted two whales from the balcony with binoculars and...
