                                                          Great holiday in lovely property

                                                          4 of 5
                                                          The property was as described on the site. The views were amazing. Michelle the property manager was helpful and checked that we were ok. Eddy is very helpful and responsive dealing with the bookings. I would wholehearted recommend this property. We were concerned about the safety of South Africa but the property was in a good area and we felt safe. If I have one tiny criticism it was in the directions to the property. Whilst we found de Kelders easily from the directions, we had difficulty in finding the actual property within the village but a helpful South African got into his car and showed us the way.

                                                          A lovely property in a wonderful location

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          We stayed in the house for 2 weeks in October 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our holiday. The property is of a very high standard and well laid out with spacious living areas, good sized bedrooms & bath/shower rooms and very comfortable beds. We made good use of the outside eating areas and brai, as well as the pool. The whole area has a wonderful friendly & safe feel to it and the house has so much going for it, including the views from the sun deck, the sound of the sea, the proximity of the house to the beach & coastal path, 15 minute drive to Hermanus for whale watching, just over an hour's drive to Cape Town, Gondwana Game Reserve near Mossel Bay, not forgetting the pleasant walk along the coastal path to The Milkwood restaurant on the beach at Onrus. Excellent service from the owner and the neighbours, who manage the property. Highly recommended.
