The Lookout At Whale Cove

Imagine a place where your front garden is the Atlantic Ocean. Where whales play outside your window. Where the sea and stars meet at night. The Lookout at Whale Cove, De Kelders.

The Lookout at Whale Cove is a luxuriously appointed 6-sleeper apartment at the southern tip of the African continent, just 3km from Gansbaai and 40km from Hermanus. Perched on the cliffs above Walker Bay and the “cellar” (kelder) caves which give this fishing village its name, The Lookout is a prime site in the world’s premier land based whale-watching venue.

It was a pleasure to go to sleep and a pleasure to wake up! Definitely coming back soon. Thank you so much!

What a fantastic apartment! We had everything we could possibly need and more. It was lovely sitting out on the balcony watching the ocean. Very relaxing, we will definitely be back!

We felt as though a lovely family had opened their home to us...with lots of love and hospitality. Your apartment is wonderful, warm and undoubtedly decorated with much thought and desire to make your guests feel right at home - and we did!

We were last here in February 2013 and enjoyed it so much that we had to come back and will definitely be back again in the future. You have really catered for your guests right from the dishwasher down to the electric blankets to ensure that they are comfortable in every respect. Thanks again, we really enjoyed our weekend!!! PS - We were also truly blessed with the sighting of the whales right outside our balcony!!

What a wonderful home. We had bad weather but could still sit and watch the whales. We will definitely be back. PS: We recommend the calamari from The Fish Lady, Main Road.

(Translated from Afrikaans) It was a pleasure to stay here and just watch the whales the whole day from the balcony - truly an experience! Thank you for the beautifully equipped unit.

Sonja and David - September 2013

What an amazing place!! To wake up in the morning to the sound of a whale blowing - a memory that will stay forever! A really fantastic apartment, space and comfort for the whole family. Thank you.
