De Kelders B&B Western Cape

Accommodation South Africa

You’ve come to the right place. De Kelders B&B gives the area’s claim to fame as the best land-based whale watching in the world a whole new meaning. De Kelders B&B is superbly situated on the shores of Walker Bay where you can bear witness to the Southern Right Whales who migrate here each year to calve and nurse their young. They are frequently known to meander along the edges of the kelp beds literally metres from the rocks! Take time out and stroll to the water’s edge to get a closer look at host resident seal colony frolicking in the kelp beds or simply relax comfortably on your private viewing deck and sip cocktails whilst enjoying a spectacular sunset as you take in the unmatched tranquillity afforded by the protected Fynbos surroundings of the Klipgat Nature Reserve.

De Kelders B & B is superbly situated on the seafront with protected fynbos surroundings allowing an uninterrupted view of Walkerbay, where spectacular sunsets reflect upon the water and alight the mountains beyond. Unmatched tranquility provides the visitor with excellent land-based whale-watching, a small seal colony always visible beyond the kelp, rock-rabbits, mongooses, tortoises, birds and even a nightly visit from a porcupine. The rooms on the 1 st floor were designed, build for and named after host children. Each room has its own warm character and the sea view from the two double rooms, James and Elmien is magnificent, offering whale watching from bed! Elmien now has a sliding door, leading to a comfortable private balcony with uninterrupted views that is undescribable The twin bed room, Daleen, faces the nature reserve and fynbos garden.
