Whaler's Cottage is an ideal place to locate yourself for a relaxing and charming holiday in Cape Town. The cottage was very well decorated, brimming with character and perfectly clean. The protected porch overlooking the harbour provided the perfect location for our breakfasts (if we didn't eat out at one of the many restaurants right on your doorstep) and the small courtyard garden at the back provided a haven for an afternoon drink or BBQ).

I have stayed in a number of different self catering properties in the colourful village of Kalk Bay and Jane Olives delightful home 'Whalers Cottage is by far the best of all.

I am reluctant to say more in fear of never being able to get a booking again, this property is one of our favourite on the planet, we visit it a few times each year. more

Thank you for your review of Whalers An absolute pleasure for me to accommodate you and the family at the cottage. more
