STUNNING 3-BEDROOM SEAFRONT APARTMENT IN DE KELDERS NEAR GANSBAAI AND HERMANUS

Gansbaai Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 beds, 2.5 baths, large balcony, sleeps 6

The Lookout at Whale Cove is a beautifully appointed 3-bedroomed self-catering apartment situated directly on the seafront, with magnificent sea views across Walker Bay and of the Overberg mountains. The spacious living area includes an open plan kitchen, dining room, comfortable lounge and separate TV nook. The modern kitchen is fully-stocked with everything either the casual, or gourmet, cook will require. The three bedrooms are well-appointed and the lounge, and main bedroom, lead onto the balcony with spectacular ocean views across Walker Bay. In whale season you can watch the whales while lying on your bed! The large balcony has a gas barbecue, outside dining and loungers. The closest beach is 100 metres away, just below the apartment where you can fish off the rocks, catch mussels and crayfish in season, snorkel, or just laze and watch the seals. A very scenic cliff path passes in front of the apartment to Klipgat Cave in one direction and Gansbaai in the other.

Local Activities: Whale watching | In season an abundance of whales can be enjoyed from the apartment’s balcony. Alternatively there are beautiful places just outside the apartment where they can be viewed at extremely close range. In addition there are boat trips to Dyer Island where you can view whales in season, sharks, penguins, seals and other marine life.

Beaches | There are at least seven beautiful white-sand, swimming beaches either within walking distance of the apartment, or a short drive away, ranging from the 18 km long pristine white sand beach of De Plaat (1 km from the apartment) to Standford's Cove (2km away), and Pearly Beach and Franskaal, which are slightly further afield but easily accessible.

Shark cage diving and marine life boating | Gansbaai, situated 3kms from De Kelders, is known as the Great White shark capital of the world. There are many reputable shark cage operators in Gansbaai.

Walking trails | The 7km Klipgat trail runs along the coast between Gansbaai and De Kelders, passing on the cliffs directly in front of the apartment. In addition there are several hiking trails along the coast and in the nearby mountains to suit all abilities.

Fishing | The De Kelders coastline provides excellent land-based and sea fishing. There are fishing harbours in Gansbaai and Kleinbaai that are ideal for boat launches. Fish include kabeljou, steenbras and the highly-prized galjoen.

Wine routes | There are at least 20 popular wine routes in and around the De Kelders area ranging from 10 minutes to 2 hours away. All are in very scenic areas.

Nature reserves and bird watching: The beautiful privately-owned Grootbos Nature Reserve, internationally acclaimed for its fynbos conservation, is 1km from De Kelders, as is the Walker Bay Nature Reserve, and the De Plaat Nature Reserve with its magnificent stretch of white beach. There is abundant marine bird life in the reserves.

Shopping | Gansbaai will satisfy most of your immediate shopping requirements.

Restaurants | From cheap and cheerful to some of the Cape’s top eateries are within the area.

Fishing | The De Kelders coastline provides excellent land-based and sea fishing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just spent a lovely weekend at the Lookout at Whale Cove. The apartment was very well appointed, very comfortable and spacious. But the views from the balcony were what made it fantastic - uninterrupted views across the whole bay. I would have been happy just to sit there all weekend. Well worth a visit and would highly recommend. Mike and friends, Cape Town, South Africa

An amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
We just want to say thank you for the use of your apartment. We enjoyed our stay very much! The apartment is lovely, warm and very comfortable and so well-appointed, to say nothing of the neatness! You have really catered to ensure that your guests are comfortable in every respect and feel at home, thanks to the small details which are often forgotten in self-catering places.
The views over False Bay are amazing.
The apartment is also situated in a beautiful region, with many places of interest to visit.
The only thing we missed was WIFI access.
We will definitely come again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words Rita. We're always thrilled when people enjoy the apartment as much as we do. Next time you should come back in whale season (approximately August to December), there's no better view of the moms and babies than from The Lookout's balcony! We look forward to your return!

We had a fantastic time in this tranquil setting, yet still found it to be within easy travelling distance of many local places of interest. It was wonderful to sleep with the sound of the sea and the whales in your ears rather than the urban traffic! A lovely holiday, thank you!

As good as it gets

  • 5 of 5
Cosy, spotless and beautifully furnished apartment that comfortably slept the family. The balcony's cliff-edge view over all of Walker Bay makes one feel part of the whales lolling or breaching below. Who needs TV? The kids had loads of fun riding bikes on the quiet roads, and there are plenty of walking paths for the grownups. It was really nice to be within walking distance of the nearby restaurant when tired of cooking, and being able to pay for a service to wash and iron our clothes also helped the relaxation factor. Highly recommended!

There are also many beautiful white sand beaches in the area ranging from the De Kelders cove directly below the apartment; Stanford Cove; Pearly Beach and the seemingly never-ending De Plaat in the Walker Bay Nature Reserve and marine sanctuary. The beautiful privately-owned Grootbos Nature Reserve, widely acclaimed for its conservation of fynbos - fauna unique to the Western Cape region of South Africa - is 1km from De Kelders. There is abundant marine bird life in the reserves. Deep sea fishing, boat trips to nearby Dyer Island, beautiful walks, hikes and mountain biking are all easily accessible.

Other Activities: Land and water-based whale watching; shark cage diving
