We had a spectacular stay with Shalene and Gerhart who were charming hosts. They made us very welcome, were most helpful and informative. Shalene arranged two restaurants for us which were very good. We enjoyed the home particularly - a beautifully designed modern space full of wonderful art. The views from the terrace and the rooms were unbelieveably beautiful. We...

Shalene and Gerhart are wonderful hosts and welcomed us warmly. Shalene was able to arrange a shark dive with practically no notice and recommended a nice walk along the cliffs to the beach. Gerhart recommended a local restaurant where we had one of the best meals on our vacation. Since it was not whale season, this gives us a perfect...

In February 2012 we spent again some memorable days with friends in the Marebella Guesthouse. Shalene and Gerhard are the best hosts. We really feel welcome. They recommended excellent restaurants in the vicinity. The sundsets with a glass of wine on the upper patio were unforgettable. The accommodation directly to the sea is comfortable.We will come back. urs-i from Switzerland

Marebella is a great place to stay! Comfortable room with own terrace facing the sea. After a warm welcome we made a 2 hours walk to the beach and cooled off afterwards in the plunge pool on the wondefull terrace! The next day we went shark cage diving (which they could have arranged for us at a lower rate) and...

First class experience from the time we contacted the owners until the time we left. They arranged shark cage diving, selected restaurants (even ringing the chef to ensure the fish was fresh) and generally treated us as family. The owners are gracious hosts, provide a warm and friendly atmosphere in their house and are enthusiastic about the guests enjoying themselves....

Perfect place for whale watching with very friendly and helpful hosts. We called the day before to book and they were very honest about the weather conditions not being ideal for whale watching. We went nevertheless and had a great stay, dinner reservation was made at a nearby lovely restaurant that we wouldn't have come across ourselves, extensive breakfast, all...

It was amazing to arrive with such a warm welcome in a location that is just awesome. The views across Walker Bay are fantastic - even a short shower brought a beautiful rainbow. our hosts made us feel at home immediately and helped organise activities - there's lots to do - and not just shark-diving. Must return when the whales...

When we arrived in de Kelders we couldn't believe our eyes. Walker Bay was just full of whales. And our B&B was located right at the water front. What a view, both from our room as well as the deck in the upper floor. The hosts, Gerhard and Shalene are very nice and the place has a very personal touch...

We had the most wonderful stay at Marebella this weekend. The rooms are beautiful with wonderful view of the ocean and the panoramic view from the upper balcony is breath taking. The hosts were incredibly friendly and made us feel so welcome and at home. We will certainly be heading back to Marebella as it was a wonderful stay
