De Kelders

De Kelders is Dutch for "the caves" and describes a residential area on the shores of Walker Bay that is, quite literally, home to the Southern Right Whale. Between July through August this is where they come to calve and they come right up to within a few metres of the rocks. Just 25 minutes from Hermanus and 5 minutes from Gansbaai, De Kelders is largely peaceful and undisturbed and despite its attractions, has managed to remain immune to large scale tourism.

A number of caves penetrate into the rock formations under the houses of De Kelders, the most famous of which is Klipgat Cave, just outside of De Kelders in the Walker Bay Nature Reserve, where some of the oldest findings of modern man have been discovered. Follow the 7km Klipgat Trail along the coast from Gansbaai harbour to the cave. Waters are treacherous in the area and currents strong, so this isn't swimming country but breathtaking stretches of beach are wonderful for walking and you can snorkel and scuba dive.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.

On registration, we issue them with a member number.

The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
