About The Oystercatcher

This self catering beach house is perched on the magnificent cliffs of De Kelders in the shark diving and whale watching hub of Gansbaai. De Kelders is renowned for some of the best land based whale watching in the world during August to November. The whales come so close to the cliff edge that you will hear them breathing inside the house! The house is located in the second row from beachfront with ocean views and within a short walking distance of the pristine Walker Bay nature/marine reserve with white sandy beaches and large open caves of archaeological interest. Six people are accommodated in three bedrooms, each with crisp white linen. The rooms have queen size, double and two single beds respectively. There are two bathrooms, one with a shower and the other with a bath. All linen and towels are provided. A built in braai on the patio, large colour TV - please bring your own DSTV card, cosy fireplace, and double lock-up garages further ensures a comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, conventional oven, fridge/freezer and all other utensils. There is a games room with table tennis. A beautiful hiking trail in front of the house winds along the rugged, fynbos lined cliffs overlooking the ocean. Visit nearby Kleinbaai Harbour (10km away) to participate in great white shark cage diving, boat based whale watching or pleasure cruises to the seal colony at Dyer Island. We are situated 180km from Cape Town, 40km from Hermanus and 5km from Gansbaai Town where fresh line fish is always available at the active harbour. Please note that no smoking inside house, or pets are allowed.

      The place is rather run down, eg: the  toilet seat is too small for the toilet in the on suite,Carpets in lounge area are in a terrible state, garden in a terrible sate. In the 15 days we spent there no fresh towels or linen was given. Not a place I would recommend.

      We have just returned home from a fabulous stay at The Oyster Catcher. The house is warm and inviting, spacious and fully equipped for a big family. Thank you for a hassle free weekend!

      We enjoyed our stay of a week. I understand we were "lucky" with the weather!Good place to relax - would be ideal for a family holiday with easy access to the shore as well as table tennis and TV for "not so nice weather days"
