About Kleinzee Oceanfront Guest House

Oceanfront, affordable luxury in the best area for land-based whale watching. Kleinzee is set on the cliffs of De Kelders where the southern right whale calve each spring. Peaceful and private, an ideal retreat for lovers of the great outdoors. The house is built in the Cape Dutch-farmhouse style with some of the walls consisting of stone sourced locally to add warmth and character.

Enjoy a hearty breakfast on the balcony overlooking the ocean with award-winning local cheese and preserves. Sample local wines while watching the sun set over the ocean from your private whale-viewing deck.

There are two oceanfront suites with direct access to a seaside hiking trail and whale watching decks with panoramic ocean and mountain views. Concertina doors open the rooms completely to the ocean. The rooms are luxuriously appointed with private access, underfloor heating and satellite TVs. Beds are king size with luxurious linen, down duvets and fluffy pillows to whisk you off to dreamland. The spacious bathrooms are en-suite with Victorian baths and pebble-floor showers. A heated splash pool in the sheltered courtyard is an ideal remedy for those hot summer days.

A convenient five-minute drive takes you to Gansbaai Town, known as the Big 2 town for it's great white shark cage diving industry and spectacular whale watching. Kleinbaai Harbour, where shark cage diving and whale watching vessels depart, is a mere 10 minutes' drive away.

Hike to the nearby Walker Bay Nature Reserve with its own sheltered swimming bay and caves of archaeological interest. Explore the rugged coastline via kayak, go for cave tours one minutes' walk away or simply relax on your own private deck.

De Kelders is approximately 180 km drive from Cape Town International Airport and 40 km drive from Hermanus. A shuttle service from the airport to Hermanus with car hire in Hermanus is available.

                  Marna who manages the guesthouse was absolutely amazing. She was very friendly, made good suggestions on where to go around the area. My husband and I felt very welcomed and at home. Tania, her assistant was also great. The guest house was absolutely perfect. The bedroom and huge bathroom was perfect. We had a wonderful anniversary weekend. Thank you Kleinzee

                  Wonderful stay. The view is unbelievable and the hosts were fabulous. Will definitely return and can recommend it. You can watch the whales from your bed. Wonderful.

                  If you are on a trip far away from home and you arrive at Kleinzee Guesthouse, you immediately feel at home. It is an amazing place! The breakfast, the room and the atmosphere - all of it was fantastic. To Linda and Deon who made us feel at home right from the start, thank you for 3 wonderful days at Kleinzee.
