Whale Huys holiday rental is located in a quiet seaside resort town called De Kelders, which is one of the quietest and safest communities on the Whale Coast. De Kelders lies an easy two hours drive up the east coast from Cape Town International airport (private transfers by helicopter or small plane can be arranged) and a short 5 minutes from the town of Gansbaai, which boasts LOADS of activities, adventures and things to do!
Stanford, a small town renowned for its quaint restaurants is 15 minutes by car. For a larger variety of shops, Hermanus is just 35 minutes away from Whale Huys holiday rental on the other side of the bay. The entire area is exceptionally rich in culture: Elim, a world heritage village, is 30 minutes away. Active adventures also abound, including wilderness and beachside horseback riding (African Horse Company is just 10 minutes away).
South Africa’s shark cage diving capital, Kleinbaai, is just 10 minutes away. In fact, you can see all of the ‘Marine Big 5’ within a 45-minute radius of our Whale Coast accommodation.) A number of wine estates in the area offer up some of South Africa’s best wines, including Hemel en Aarde valley, Stanford Valley, and Lomond wines. Wine tasting can be done six days, and in some places 7 days a week.
