Incredibly good value and superlative hosts......there is no better place to stay in the Somerset West area. Came alone to visit friends in the area, so the hire car came in very handy. Only 15 mins away from the Helderberg Nature Park....super for hyking and bird watching.

We had a wonderful one week stay at Chelaya Lodge. What a beautiful setting. Stunning gardens and accommodation. Exceptionally clean and the staff were very friendly.
Thank you Harriet and Mike for being so hospitable. Nothing we asked for was ever a problem for you!
My kids absolutely loved the setting with all the ducks and geese and their preference was to stay at the Lodge every day. They did not want to even go to the beach!
Chelaya is also very near Monkey Town and Mondeor Nursery which are both fabulous outings for kids!
We hope to come back soon!

We came from Zimbabwe, Iceland, Canada, Australia and all the corners of South Africa.
We were 17 family members gathered to catch up, regroup and see the wonders of the Cape.
We loved Chelaya so much we did not leave once during the three day stay - and did not see any of the wonders of the Cape as we were so at peace and happy.
The owners and staff attended to our every need; serving, cleaning and caring.
We can highly recommend Chelaya for this type of gathering.

We had a great experience, we needed time away from work and after exams. Everybody that we came in contact with, was exceptionally friendly and we had all privacy and peace of mind that we were looking for. We will definitely come back and we will also refere our friends as well. Well done Harriet and team! Missy and Jonathan....

What a lovely restful weekend we had at Chelaya Country Lodge! The accommodation was terrific - a home away from home. The gardens are beautiful - lovely lawns and flowerbeds, ponds with ducks and geese, waterlilies in bloom, and hens and chicks clucking around. What more could one ask for?

Monkey Town is just around the corner for those with young children and the beach and town are just a few minutes away. Chelaya is great for a weekend away or a longer holiday.
