Luxury Ocean Front Beach House

Baywatch Cottage is a luxury three-bedroom self-catering beach house in De Kelders, just outside Gansbaai. Built on the clifftops of one of the most sought-after stretches of coastline, Baywatch Cottage’s placement at the end of a cul-de-sac affords ultimate privacy. With only the indigenous fynbos of Walker Bay Nature Reserve between you and the ocean, enjoy your early morning coffee and afternoon sundowner out on the deck, where you can also dine alfresco. An open-plan living arrangement includes a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room and lounge perfect for entertaining. Baywatch Cottage has direct access to hiking trails, and the sheltered cove below attracts southern right whales from June to December each year. Due to the nature of the environment, Baywatch Cottage is not pet-friendly. Baywatch Cottage sleeps six guests.

Nearby Activities Reviews


“We have stayed at Baywatch Cottage a few times and have always enjoyed the experience. The accommodation is comfortable and homely with all the necessary conveniences. The location on the seaside cliff overlooking Walker Bay is unbeatable. Lovely walks and other tourist attractions in the Overberg region are on your doorstep. Starting and ending your days on the verandah with coffee or drinks and a barbeque whilst admiring the view.”  Cynthia Peinke
“We stayed at Baywatch Cottage in mid-October. It is a traditional beach house in every sense of the word. It is immaculate with all the essentials. We hiked the entirety of Walker Bay from Gansbaai to Hermanus over five days, using the cottage as our base. Nowhere are whale sightings more plentiful than from the cottage’s deck. I loved nothing better than sitting on the deck with my morning coffee or afternoon cocktail whale watching. Baywatch is a gem!”  Frank Pinello
“The cottage is in an exceptional location, on the edge of the cliffs overlooking the bay, perfect for whale watching and relaxing to the sound of breaking waves. Modern furnishing makes for a comfortable stay. We walked the cliff trail that starts ten metres from the cottage and meanders for several kilometres along the coast. All in all a great experience, and I rate Baywatch Cottage as one of the best places to stay in Gansbaai.”  Tony Kaleb
