Each room has a balcony to sit and enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching whales in the bay. The rooms were minimalist / art... More

A beautiful design lodge; don't expect a hotel. Very friendly staff and a fantastic view. Good breakfast. The minus is that the lodge doesn't look finished. Floor heating, TV (with surround system) didn't work, their is no elevator, so you have to carry your bags up the stairs. That's a pity for such a beautiful place. That's why I rate... More

Even though we came in late, from start to finish, Rita and Frank made us feel like we were at home. From the champagne and roses in our room, to the lunch and late... More

De Kelders is a very special village over looking Walker Bay and Sea Star Lodge is the ultimate place to stay to capture the beauty of the Bay. The lodge is modern and comfortable and the views from the rooms are spectacular. Highly recommended.

We received a very warm welcome from Clarissa and Rita when we arrived and enjoyed drinks on the balcony overlooking the picturesque bay. Our room also had a balcony with a sea view and was equipped with a projector and surround sound for a cinema experience. We enjoyed use of the sauna and swimming pool.
