We stayed there in November 2013. Our first trip to South Africa and not our last one. We arrived by car at the really steep street. We got a warm welcome and our hosts selected us a whale - that can be seen from the balcony. We got the separate apartment with a own, view. You just sit outside, listen... More

We stayed for two nights and had an amazing time absorbing the healing sounds of the ocean. Lots of birds to watch in the morning, with truly knowledgeable hosts Gerhard and Alet. Even in the off-whale season we did manage to spot a whale blowing far off in the sea. So we will definitely be back in whale season. This... More

This small 4 bedroom B and B is run by the most charming couple whose local knowledge and obvious pleasure in looking after their guests added immeasurably to our three day stay. Its location is THE BEST in the whole of De Kelders and Gansbaai and from our bedroom, the small garden and the private cliff top paths we marvelled... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our 4 week trip in South Africa. The weather wasn't too great (very windy) so the boats for white shark diving did not go out. We still enjoyed our stay here b/c of the magnificent views from this B&B and the super close proximity to the ocean (it's literally right outside your door!).... More

Staying with Gerhard and Alet is certainly a pleasure. Their local knowledge is great and they are so informative and helpful it saves a lot of time, particularly when they go out of their way to make bookings for boat-based whale watching and/or shark cage diving The location is absolutely superb and the views are simply stunning. The rooms are... More

We have stayed with Gerhard and Alet a number of times over the past 8 years and every occasion has been a delight. The location is unparalleled. As the longest-established bed and breakfast in the area, you will not find a better authority on -- and sightings of -- whales, pods of dolphins, porcupines, mongoose, not to mention the spectacular...

We stayed with Gerhard & Alet in October for 3 nights. It was a pleasure to stay in their beautiful home. They are such a lovely couple who are so friendly, helpful and informative and Alet arranged our whale watching boat trip which was a great experience. The view of the whales from Elmein room was fantastic - it was... More

In November we spent 3 days at the De Kelders B&B. The wonderful guesthouse is situated on the cliff directly at the sea and is the perfect place for "relaxing with whales". A very special thanks to Alet and Gerhard, we were not like guests but more part of the family for our time there. The picnic with you down... More

We're staying at this B&B right now for 2 more nights, and to be honest, it is just perfect. I am actually right now watching the whales playing only a 100m from the room. We're staying in Elmien room, it has a little balcony and is big enough. breakfast is great with all you need. The hosts are very nice... More
