The Oystercatcher - De Kelders
Name
Cape Whale Coast, Gansbaai

Welcome to the Oystercatcher Holiday House in De Kelders, Gansbaai, the whale-watching paradise just 40 km from Hermanus. The Oystercatcher Holiday House is a spacious 6 sleeper self catering beach house perched on the magnificent cliffs of De Kelders in the shark diving and whale watching hub of Gansbaai.

Welcome to the Oystercatcher Holiday House in De Kelders, Gansbaai, the whale-watching paradise just 40 km from Hermanus. The Oystercatcher Holiday House is a spacious 6 sleeper self catering beach house perched on the magnificent cliffs of De Kelders in the shark diving and whale watching hub of Gansbaai.

 

De Kelders is renowned for some of the best land based whale watching in the world.  During August to November, the whales come so close to the cliff edge that are able to hear them breathing inside the house.

 

The house itself is located in the second row from the beachfront and within a short walking distance of a pristine nature/marine reserve with white sandy beaches and large open caves of archaeological interest. Enjoy breathtaking, unobstructed views of the ocean and mountains less than one minute's walk away. On a clear day, you can even see the whales breach from the comfort of the stoep.

 

This spacious self catering holiday house sleeps 6 people. There are three bedrooms, each with crisp white linen (100% cotton percale linen). Two of the rooms have queen size beds. The third room has two single beds. There are two bathrooms, one with a shower and the other with a bath.

 

A built in braai on the patio, large color TV with full DSTV, cozy fireplace, and double lock-up garages further ensures a comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, conventional oven, fridge/freezer and all other utensils. There is also a games room with table tennis board. Bats provided.

 

The Oystercatcher is the ideal place from which to explore the Western Cape. It is situated 180km from Cape Town, 40km from Hermanus, 20km from Stanford and 5km from Gansbaai Town where fresh line fish is always available at the active harbor. The Winelands are just over an hour's drive away, as are the quaint towns of Baardskeerdersbos, Napier and the southern most tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas.

The quickest route is via the N2 but the most scenic route is via Somerset West, Die Strand, past Gordon's Bay (stop at the harbor for coffee), past Rooi Els, Pringle Bay, Hangklip, Betty's Bay, Kleinmond (have another cup of coffee) and then via Hermanus. If it is during the week, stop at Bientang's Cave for another cup of coffee.
