Rooms at De Kelders Private Villa

There are just three rooms here, all bedecked in a contemporary yet homely design but each with their own unique character. Choose from the pool room, with a Jacuzzi bath and private veranda overlooking the garden; the suite room with a patio looking out to the beautiful Gansbaai Mountains; or the private room with a study area and patio garden.

Food and facilities

At the heart of De Kelders Private Villa is the spacious library and living room, laden with books, magazines, DVDs and CDs. During the winter, get cosy by the fireplace and feel at home in this chic setting. Relish freshly prepared meals made with locally-sourced produce (many of the ingredients are plucked straight from the garden), and pair with one of the region’s reputable wines. Enjoy a delicious breakfast on the terrace in a truly peaceful, rejuvenating setting.

Activities at De Kelders Private Villa

Relax by the saltwater pool, share a barbecue on the open terrace or step outside to follow the cliff trail to the ocean, where you can spot whales breaching – the area is renowned for it. Go swimming in one of the protected coves or hike for 20km to Hermanus; try fishing at de Plaat or go horseback riding on Dyer Island; there’s plenty to do in the area.
