Chelaya Country Lodge
Reviewed November 23, 2012

What a lovely restful weekend we had at Chelaya Country Lodge! The accommodation was terrific - a home away from home. The gardens are beautiful - lovely lawns and flowerbeds, ponds with ducks and geese, waterlilies in bloom, and hens and chicks clucking around. What more could one ask for?

Monkey Town is just around the corner for those with young children and the beach and town are just a few minutes away. Chelaya is great for a weekend away or a longer holiday.

Chelaya is tucked away in the Cape winelands but has a rare advantage: You are surrounded by vineyards & the ocean. As a Capetonian I can say this is unique. It is a luxurious B&B, with delicious food & great hospitality. I can also recommend Chelaya as a base for those traveling from afar for an annual holiday. It's close to all the major attractions of Cape Town but a place where one can truly relax. The owners will go out of their way to make your stay special & memorable.
