My family spent a glorious week at the wonderful villa and had a perfect and relaxing vacation. The villa is comfortable and had more than enough room for our party of four.
The property was very clean, fantastic and the facilities were impeccable
.”  Ralf

Excellent! We will recommend this to anybody that would like to visit De Kelders. We will visit the villa again.”  Yolandie  

We had the pleasure of staying in this house for two weeks! What a treat. It is a chic, contemporary property with miles and miles of unobstructed views of the ocean and beautiful fynbos. Very private but filled with light. Everything you can dream of is on this property. Beautiful and perfectly equipped kitchen, quality linen, beans-to-coffee machine, excellent sound system, amazing separate laundry room. Then there are those special treats like a moving wall that opens up on the nature reserve, private pool and automated blinds. Of all the luxury villas we have ever rented, this was my favourite. Thank you, Bjorn and Annick for making the experience unforgettable and for the wonderful welcome basket of goodies we found on arrival.”  Madeleen
