Area Information:
The little village of De Kelders, which lies just 5 km north of Gansbaai and about 25 minutes’ drive from Hermanus, has managed to remain largely immune to the large scale tourism that envelopes this part of the country, and is still essentially a fishing village and is regarded as the best land based whale watching area in the Western Cape. Gansbaai is famous for Shark Cage diving.

De Kelders lies on the shores of Walker Bay - renowned as the home of the Southern Right Whale - it is predominantly to these sheltered bays and rocky inlets that the whales return year after year to mate and calve between July through November. Some of the best land- and boat based whale watching in the world is the major attraction of De Kelders and whales come to within metres of the rocks that line the edges of kelp beds along the De Kelders coastline, never ceasing to elicit delight.

The coast here has one of the most unusual and distinctive geological features in the form of a series of underground caves beneath the cliffs. Known formerly as Die Drup Kelder (the drip cellar) the town is today simply called De Kelders (Dutch for the cellars). These natural caves - there are a number of them, both large and small - contain stalactites and stalagmites and crystal clear pools set in the floor with cool water perfect for swimming. One in particular, known as the Freshwater cave, is famous for its pool, but not open to the public in a bid to conserve its original beauty. Stanford’s Bay in De Kelders is an ideal alternative for swimming.

A little further up the coast from De Kelders, just outside the Walker Bay Nature Reserve, are some of the oldest remains of modern man found in the Klipgat Cave.

The Klipgat Trail is a 7 km path from the Gansbaai harbour to the cave past a number of rock pools and caves en route that also takes in some of this part of the coast’s rare limestone fynbos. The Walker Bay Nature Reserve itself is well worth a visit and includes a long beach, known as De Plaat, along its 17 km coastline.

The reserve stretches between Hermanus and Stanford for about 25 km. Fine examples of lowland coastal fynbos, also known as strandveld, are in evidence here and animals in the reserve include the Cape clawless otter, bushbuck, duiker, grysbok and steenbok. One can fish, swim and picnic within the reserve as well as enjoy a number of day hikes.

Property Facilities:
With no street in front of Amazing Grace you are guarenteed peace and quiet on your balcony. Barbeque facilities are available to both rooms. Each room has a private entrance. Secure off street parking for both rooms. Enjoy watching the Southern Right Whales from the patio during whale season. Being surrounded by trees, the bird life is amazing. Bicycle for hire from Amazing Grace to explore beautiful de Kelders and Walker Bay nature reserve.

We had an excellent 2 night stay at Amazing Grace. The hosts, Deon & Linda made us feel right at home and went out of their way to make our stay as wonderful as it was. Our room had views of the ocean, was spacious and comfortable and had a luxurious double shower. The breakfasts, which we had on the deck overlooking a stunning sea view, were absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. Deon & Linda really go above and beyond for their guests and we can highly recommend staying at Amazing Grace.
Superb. 5 out of 5

De Kelders is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The views are simply magnificent. Long stretches of quiet beaches. Whale season is incredible, in 2018 we had more than a 1000 whales in the bay.

However, De Kelders is loved and cherished by well seasoned travelers who return year upon year.
