“Awesome house and great staff.”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Stayed only one night and arrived late around 7PM. The owner was super friendly, he shared many things about the area and gave an awesome restaurant recommendation. Rooms are very nice, clean, very spacious bathroom. De Kelders is more secluded and quiet than Gaansbai, also a plus.

We stayed here just for one night with the family, we booked the house next to it and it was great!
Beautifully decorated, modern, and big dinning room.

We ended up in having breakfast at the main building, also very nice!

This is the second time i have stayed at the Roundhouse and it is still a Fantastic place. My friends and i stayed in Simons town for 2 days. It was ment to be 3 but the shark dive for the 3rd bay that we booked had to be cancelled due to poor weather. My friend contacted Dave who managed to get us on a boat gor a dive at Gansbaai. Dave met us at Cape Town airport and took us to the Roundhouse. The guesthouse still looks as impressive as it did last year. The views from the roof top are stunning. The rooms are well equipped and if you need anything Dave will do his best to help.
For the best place to stay and have shark dives organised for you then the Roundhouse is the place.
Keep up the good work Dave.

I stayed at the Roundhouse for 2 nights in June. I stayed in the Chordata suite which was reallly spcaious for one person. The place was spotless and the bed super comfy.
Dave collected me from Cape Town and even arranged all of my shark diving trips before I arrived which was super helpful.
When I arrived they even offered to bring me into town to the supermarket to get a few bits which I really appriciated.
The area is lovely, really scenic and quiet. I went for a walk down to the Cafe on the Rocks one of the days and had lunch with amazing views over the bay, even saw some whales!
I would totally recommend staying at the Roundhouse and if I go back to South Africa I will definitely stay again.

Had a fantastic weekend. Staff are awesome, loved the breakfasts. Even with the little problem of the spa bath not working, they tried to make our stay as memorable as possible. The roof top jacuzzi creates a wonderful way to watch the whales while enjoying a glass of wine.

We were very happy with location, cleanliness, comfort and breakfast. The building is very interesting, with amazing views from the top, and a jacuzzi on the deck. The breakfast was really great, with plenty of choice.

You do not need a garmin to fing a place in spite of the fact that you are an european driving on the wrong side of the road for the first time. The cottage is lovely and the owner kind. The booklet in cottage contains a lot of information about interesting activities and places in the area worth to visit.
