Welcome to De Kelders PRIVATE Villa – the luxury of privacy
This secluded De Kelders PRIVATE retreat prides itself on timelessness and tranquility. It is a weary travelers delight and not recommended for the glitzy tourist who wants a holiday resort.
The Villa is an ideal and convenient base from which to explore the wonders and attractions of the Overberg region. The three bedroomed house is situated on a 1000m double plot 200m from the cliff paths. Its location provides guests with the privacy to view and not to be viewed by passers by. The enclosed double plot, private garden and heated pool allow visitors to relish in the warmth of the African sun and enjoy some well-earned breathing space.
Conde Nast "Celebrated designer Neil Stemmet’s uncompromising green philosophy makes you sit up and notice. The idea behind the construction of De Kelders Private Villa was to celebrate creativity, both natural and human. Often amazing things in life are overlooked. It’s about taking time out from modern life and looking at a tree trunk to remind you of the dual functions of beauty and sustainability."
The Villa can be booked for exclusive use, in which case the whole house is at your disposal. Alternatively the rooms can be booked separately and the house will be shared with other amiable travelers also looking for a peaceful retreat. Accommodation is by prior arrangement only. The Villa is not numbered and unmarked as a guesthouse, assuring the guests complete privacy.
