This guesthouse is one of those gems that, if one needs to stay in De Kelders again, you would most certainly stay here. The setting for whale watching is exquisite. I had a fantastic stay at the Kleinzee Guesthouse. The hosts are welcoming, friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious, especially the home made muesli and flapjacks. I would recommend...

What an absolutely fantastic place to stay. Upon arrival we were welcomed with open arms into a clean, organised house. The hostess helped us to our room and explained how everything worked. Before we even started our trip, the owner informed us about good eating spots and activities we could do - so even though it was our first stay... More

Warm, friendly hospitality, beautiful rooms, quiet location. Although we weren't staying in the honeymoon suite, it still felt like we were! Would be great during all seasons as there is a cosy fireplace. It was a well deserved break and would highly recommend staying here.

Luxurious rooms in impeccable condition. Views are truly breathtaking, so thumbs up for location. Walking distance to nature reserve, we had enjoyed a nice and easy hike to secluded beach and didn't see a soul - so relaxing. Best ever breakfast and very warm welcome. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect stay.

Special thanks to the manager Utrecia, who made us extremely welcome in this fresh clean, beautiful home, with such sensational views. Excellent for couples. An artistic and yummy breakfast - one of the best we had during our month in South Africa. We were entertained by 100s of dolphins and a few seals in front of our deck as the... More

A very nice and comfortable place with a very friendly manager. Breakfast on the balcony with splendid view over the bay (in my case even with a few late whales around) was the best start into the day you can think of. There were quite some mosquitoes at night so I had to close all windows, but this is nothing... More

We loved the whole experience of staying at the Kleinzee Guesthouse. The views were stunning, the honeymoon suite spotlessly clean and the breakfast superb. Utrecia went to the trouble of making wonderful home made pancakes. Indeed she made us feel so welcome and was extremely helpful booking restaurants and suggesting activities. All in all a lovely place to stay.

The views from the deck were just amazing - and every day was different! Pinks and blues - you cannot imagine how lovely it is! The staff were amazing: Utrecia made us homemade pancakes for breakfast and went out of her way to make us a lovely lunch when we had to leave very early one morning for a shark... More

The view and location cannot be beat. Very comfortable rooms with modern updates. Bedding is great and bathrooms newly renovated and large with big showers and a nice tub. A solid 4star accommodation with a 5star location. The manager is very friendly and extremely helpful. Stay here.
