Ocean, nature, spectacular views and whale watching at your doorstep!

Each bedroom of this stunning Whale Coast self catering accommodation opens out onto its own sea front balcony, affording visitors breath-taking views of our gorgeous coastline. The uninterrupted panoramic views of Walker Bay and the surrounding mountain range extend up to Hangklip and even the Cape of Good Hope on a clear day.
Next to the infinity pool, a private path winds its way through the fynbos vegetation that is indigenous to the Western Cape, taking you to the water’s edge, or to a walking trail that extends from the one end of Gansbaai to the pristine beaches of the Walker Bay Nature Conservancy near Hermanus.

Whale Huys is a blessed escape from the city and a perfect luxurious destination for tourists and locals alike.

Whale Huys combines the warmth and character of traditional thatched roof architecture with the luxury of a modern holiday villa. It boasts conveniences like basic satellite TV, wireless Internet and a laptop, which you can use to check your email, stay in touch with loved ones or surf the web. Although Whale Huys is a self catering accommodation, a private chef and daily maid services can be made available at an extra charge.

More About De Kelders and how to get to Whale Huys
Located less than two hours away from Cape Town International Airport, Whale Huys self-catering accommodation is well positioned as a weekend escape from Cape Town or Johannesburg. With Cape Agulhas, the southern-most tip of Africa, lying just 85km to the north, you’ll find Whale Huys the perfect spot to start your garden route tour.

Sit on the balcony in the sun and watch whales breaching in the bay, or enjoy the Cape’s finest wines with friends and family while basking in the delicious warmth of a log fire.

Whale Huys has been built directly on the Whale Coast in De Kelders (Overberg region, Western Cape), affording visitors some of the best land-based whale watching in the world directly from the villa during the months of June to November! Also during the rest of the year, dolphins, seals, dassies (rock hyrax) and dozens of species of birds provide a delightful and intimate experience with nature.

Meet the Couple Behind the Whale Huys Magic!

Whale Huys self catering accommodation was lovingly created by Bruce and Eelco, a Dutch/American couple who – for 10 years – have been regular visitors to this part of South Africa. Bruce and Eelco purchased Whale Huys in April 2014 and applied decades’ worth of travel and holiday rentals experience to creating a relaxed, uncluttered and yet luxurious and homely environment.
