“GORGEOUS LOOKOUT”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This was a lovely apartment with a GREAT view! Had everything we needed and was good value for money. The Lookout is a place to go and relax and enjoy the lovely balcony and gas braai with outside dining area.
We enjoyed being able to go for walks either along the rocky paths or the road. Close to Gansbaai where you can buy lovely fresh fish. All in all a fabulous place to go and stay. I would highly recommend it!

“Comfortable apartment in a peaceful area overlooking the bay!”
Reviewed January 20, 2016 for a stay in January 2016
1
person found this review helpful

The apartment is large and spacious with a balcony large enough for dining and barbecuing.
There are wonderful views over the bay and the area is quiet. I would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a peaceful holiday away from the normal hustle and bustle of Hermanus.
Pros - perfect for a family holiday with all the amenities (shops/liquor store/laundry etc) one could need only a short drive away. Apartment has three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a guest toilet. There are two lounge areas and a wonderfully stocked book shelf. Beds are comfortable and the bedrooms are well positioned so each one is relatively private. The area is ideal for cycling/running/walking.
Cons - Kitchen is not well equipped - very basic. There is only one shower as the one bathroom only has a bath. We were there when it was extremely hot and ended up buying fans for the bedrooms as when one opened the windows/door we were eaten alive by mosquitoes (even with mosquito repellent). Although it overlooks the bay, one has to drive/walk to the nearest swimming beach. Restaurants are quite a drive away.
In conclusion - I would happily stay here again if I wanted another relaxed holiday

I'm so pleased you had a good time and enjoyed the amenities we have to offer. I'm sorry the mosquitoes were a nuisance - normally the electric mosquito machines are enough to deter them!

You must have missed the little beach directly in front of the apartment and down the stairs. It is a pebble beach but is wonderful for a dip and a sundowner!

One of our favourite restaurants in the area is Coffee on the Rocks which is just 100 metres down our road.

I'm sorry you found the kitchen basic - as a keen cook myself I have equipped it with a fridge/freezer, oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, kettle and many extras such as a coffee plunger, baking equipment, wok, plastic ware for kids and at least pieces of crockery and cutlery across the spectrum (nothing worse than a holiday rental with only six of everything because it sleeps six!)

It has all been said before by others. This was a very clean and well equipped apartment. Everything one could need was there. We would definitely stay again.

“Always a treat!”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

person found this review helpful

Just got back from our annual two night stay in De Kelders ... I think I counted 10 whales in the bay, including an all-white calf ... We look forward each year to coming to this apartment. I still maintain it is the best place in all of De Kelders (and the whole area, in fact) to watch these incredible creatures. We love the accommodation and all it provides - from the massive balcony with its comfortable seating and gas grill to the dishwasher in the kitchen - to the wi-fi to share all our pics with our friends and family!) Thank you, Mailie and David for sharing your spot with us!

“Comfortable Apartment”
Reviewed February 12, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Superb balcony and very nice master bedroom are the highlights of this well appointed apartment.

Ideally located for whale watchers (unfortunately no whales when we were there!) with a superb view over Walker Bay. Also close to a very nice cafe that does a superb lunch and we had a delightful meal at Kloeks@Home which is within a ten minute walk.

The kitchen and en-suite bathroom could do with a bit of a freshen up. Also the paid for wifi didn't last long.

However, we had a good time and would recommend the apartment.

Thanks so much for your review, I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. The whales are in full force from August to December, unfortunately January's a bit late for them. Just to let you know that we have started offering the first 250Mbs of wi-fi for free. We then charge R60 per 250Mbs thereafter.
