De Kelders is natural and peaceful - a place still undiscovered by tourists.
Marebella - Italian for beautiful sea - succeeds in blending Mediterranean and Art-deco architecture. The view over Walker Bay from the private terraces are picture framed by large beams, designed to shade your eyes from the brilliant afternoon sun, for squint-free whale watching. Our passion for light and space mean few doors, wide archways and open-plan living. Guest rooms are very spacious with their own large private seafront balconies. Or take in the 180 degree panorama from the upper pool deck.
Whale watching from the cliffs (August to November)
De Kelders offers the best natural land based whale watching area in the world for Southern Right Whales. These magnificent creatures return to Walker Bay each year in greater numbers from August to December where they mate, give birth and rear their young. As you walk along the elevated De Kelders cliff path and witness the whales playing with the kelp (seaweed), sailing, lobtailing, spyhopping, mating or breaching in Walker Bay you will be as amazed and in awe as we are every year.
There are many adventure activities to enjoy near De Kelders. Gansbaai is world reknowned for Great White Shark cage diving and surface viewing trips. During whale season (August to December) you can do boat based whale watching. Horse riding on the beach or in our fynbos rich nature environment for all levels of riders. It would be our pleasure to assist you with arrangements for all these activities.
