We only stayed one night at this B&B but enjoyed what we saw. Gerard and Alet met us and showed us around the room. The main plus for this B&B are the views (if you stay in the Elmien Room). We watched the whales dancing about in the sunset from our balcony with a lovely glass of wine. In the... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at De Kelders B&B. Gerhard and Alet were so nice and welcoming and shared useful information about the area. As soon as we arrived we saw about six southern right whales right in front of their place and shortly after one of the whales began breaching and put on quite a show.... More

Great views, lots of whales passing by. Nice base to explore the area and avoid staying in Gansbaai. Reasonable prices, clean rooms and bathrooms. Shame we didn't have the chance to stay longer. Definitely recommended and would come back if I visited the area again.

The view is absolutely fantastic - you can watch whales from your room.The owners of the guest house, an elderly couple, is very caring and knows everything about whales and Gaansbai. This Guest house was the first one opended in this area 18 years ago. But nevertheless we felt the rooms as such have not met our expectations compared to... More

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
