De Kelders Private Villa


An exclusive retreat by the seaside

De Kelders Private Villa is situated in the coastal village of De Kelders near Gansbaai. Owner, Neil, is the mastermind behind the exquisite decor, which exhibits a delight of South African and international art, furniture and objects. Neil and his cook, Samkelo, treat guests to delicious, simple meals in their retreat by the ocean.

All rooms lead to the spacious common area, where guests can entertain themselves with the library of books, magazines, DVDs and CDs on offer. For chilly days and nights, there is a large fireplace to huddle around and relax with friends. Enjoy freshly prepared local cuisine and aromatic wines in the dining area and start your mornings with a delicious country breakfast of home-baked confectionery, jams and preserves with the smell of grilled bacon wafting out to the terrace.

Extremely intimate and comprised of only 3 guest rooms, De Kelders can be booked on a single room basis or on an exclusive use basis. Guest rooms are modern and slick, their clean lines contrasted by exceptionally fluffy down-duvets and soft fabrics. All have en-suite bathrooms, high ceilings and streaming natural light.
