Revamped in 2019. 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 Deco, House&Leisure, House&Garden and Gourmet, the villa offers the luxury of privacy. Three bedrooms with fireplaces​, a 130m lounge with a library of magazines, books, music and films. Large fireplace for the winter nights. Private garden with secluded, solar heated saltwater pool. The 50m 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 homecooked regional dinners are legendary. The owner is the author of cookbooks. The retreat is an Instagram haven. The house is not branded, hence the name private house. The villa can be rented for exclusive use. In October 2019, the luxurious penthouse and superior suite with incredible sea views will be operational.

From the moment we walked and were welcomed to DK Private Villa, it felt like entering paradise. Received a warm welcome from our host and chef Neil. With the modern touch of the interior to the music playlist just sets the mood for the mouth-watering 4 course meal to play itself. The decor flows from one end to the next and is awe-inspiring indicative with a modern zest that leaves you breathless for the views. When it comes to the meals, this is where my culinary experience started. Started off with artisan bread freshly and homely baked with the aromas that you just want to follow, to the butternut soup that just washes down perfectly with the bread. 2nd course was an array of a cabbage salad and cheese, enjoyed every hand picked piece. Moved onto the 3rd course as the music allowed us to and Neil being attentive, we started with the Lamb Fillet and baked potatoes. To end off we had a mixture of berry sorbet that tantalize the tastebuds bringing everything together. Thank you Neil!

Neil's home is absolutely exceptional...and that is exactly what it feels like: a home and not just another B&B. Beautiful interior, unbelievable hospitality and amazing food. Absolutely worth visiting.

Charming, oppulant and welcoming from the minute one arrives.Highly recommendable with great host. A lovely surprising retreat and can imagine what a stay must be like in the whale season. Although a residence , it feels like a boutique hotel with excellent service and friendly staff.
