Welcome to The Grand View

Nestled between bustling Hermanus and the Shark Cage Diving hotspot, Gansbaai, lies sleepy de Kelders. The perfect getaway for those seeking some much needed relaxation and tranquility.

The Grand View offers you the perfect weekend getaway from Cape Town, and anywhere in the Overberg, Western Cape. A short two hour drive from Cape Town International Airport along a scenic coastal route, you will arrive at your destination. Upon entering the Guest House the choice of name will become apparent. With unparalleled ocean views stretching out before you, The Grand View Guest Villa will take your breath away. During the winter months (July - October) the Southern Right Whales visit Walker Bay to calve. From our villa on the cliff top, you will see whales breaching, spy hopping and lazing about in the cool Atlantic Ocean below. Dolphins and Great White sharks are also commonly seen year round, making your stay with us even more spectacular. 

Our Luxury Villa caters for your every need. We have a private chef on hand, able to whip up the meal of your choice. With many local wine farms in the region we offer impeccable food and wine pairings for those with a refined palate. Daily wine tours are highly recommended, with meals, pairings and unforgettable views along the Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) Valley to boot. Hermanus is known as “The Riviera of the South”, compared to the splendid scenic, rolling hills of France. Many of our wines compete with the finest in the world.

If you can tear yourself away from the luxury of our holiday villa, there are boundless activities to do nearby. But a stones throw away, Gansbaai offers Great White Shark Cage Diving tours, and has attracted visitors from all around the globe; including the likes of Prince Harry and Brad Pitt. 

Hermanus has many adventure tour operators with activities ranging from paint balling to tree top sliding. If you can imagine it, we’re sure to find it for you.

We look forward to hosting you at our accommodation venue, and making your stay one to never forget.
