The main entrance to Whale Huys is on this floor. The living/dining room space is open plan. The central atrium area has 7+ meter ceilings.

Whale Huys is our dream retirement home and we are delighted to be able to share this magical place with people from around the world. We have carefully selected quality furnishings for the villa to make us feel at home. Rather than a log list of "do's and don'ts". We would ask that you treat it with the same care and respect we do. But for complete clarity on a few common points of question: There is no smoking allowed anywhere inside the villa and no pets allowed.

We had a great weekend in the beautiful Whale House. The location is absolutely perfect and the views - from all the bedrooms, lounge, diningroom and deck - to die for. De Kelders is a tranquil little town that is close to quaint Stanford and busier Gansbaai. The house is amazingly well equipped (think international adaptors, a gym, a yoga mat and even a laptop for guests). The deck, with a pool overlooking the bay - was my favorite spot. Highly recommended - I can't wait to go back! And thanks for the gift basket Bruce!

This is the most amazing place to stay. The house is gorgeous and we were greeted with a large basket of wine and other goodies, and plenty of herbs and other kitchen necessities - not always the case in air bnb. But it is the position of this house right on the edge of the cliff overlooking the whale sanctuary of Walker Bay that is so outstanding. Within a minute of walking into the house we were spotting southern right whales right out in front and it is so close you can hear them breath and it is an enchanting sight to see whales and their babies so close and to observe all the different behaviours from every room in the house. There is a track just below the house through the flowering fynbos vegetation with amazing rock formations and a paradise for bird watchers as well as whale watching. We needed to stay longer. This place is paradise.

A wonderful house in a fantastic location! Whales swimming by all day - you could not ask for more! Very comfortable house with stunning views and sunsets. Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a home away from home in the De Kelders area.

Guys, I don't need to say anything, just check the pictures. The place, the view, breathtaking.

Hey Daniel, Glad you enjoyed your stay, and yes, it's a shame that we are so fully booked this time of year. We do have availability during the week next week, but I suspect will have left the Cape by then? In any case, we hope to welcome you guys back soon. All the best, Bruce

We had a fabulous few days at Whale Huys - with great weather, amazing communication in the lead up, a beautiful welcome basket and whales frolicking just off the balcony for a whole day - incredible! The kitchen is really well prepared, the pool was brilliant, the kids loved it and so did the adults. Would recommend it thoroughly

I have always loved traveling. Exploring new places, meeting new people and speaking new languages energizes me and enriches my perspective. So not surprising that I have lived and worked on four continents. Although I grew up in the US, I have lived in Amsterdam more or less …
