When South African Tourism chose their M A R I N E W I L D L I F E & F Y N B O S slogan, "the world in one country", they THE BEAUTY OF THE OVERBERG "the world in the Overberg". to area blessed with astounding and An beauty - from the Overberg diverse ranges and vineyards, to the mountain coastline; from the rolling rugged to the unique fynbos - the wheatfields could have narrowed it down even further Overberg really has it all. “ T h e o n l y m a n I e n v y i s t h e m a n w h o h a s n o t y e t b e e n t o A f r i c a – f o r h e h a s s o m u c h t o l o o k f o r w a r d t o ” Together with the amazing marine wildlife on your doorstep in De Kelders: whales, dolphins, sharks, seals and penguins, the Overberg - only a 90 – R i c h a r d M u l l i n - minute drive from Cape Town - is the jewel in the Western Cape's crown.

husband, David, was initially involved with selling the My Cove apartment development. He went to look at it Whale it was still being constructed and came back to while excited at the prospect of buying there. Johannesburg OUR STORY At the time I'd never even heard of De Kelders so I was more than a bit skeptical at the thought! We flew down to take a look and - as they say in the classics - the rest is history! M A I L I E G R E E N I instantly fell in love with De Kelders and the Overberg. Because we bought early we were able to buy the apartment with the largest balcony, and the best views of the whales and the mountains. There's nothing I love better than spending time in De Kelders. I cherish the sunsets from the balcony, the sheer magnificence of the surroundings and, clearly, the whales in season! Yet, sadly, one of the tragedies of life is that one can't holiday year round(!), so we also rent out The Lookout at Whale Cove to guests. We've had wonderful feedback from our guests over the years (you can read our TripAdvisor reviews on this page). And we love that many of them view The Lookout as their home-from-home (nearly 50% are returning guests). We've developed a bit of a bug for vacation rentals so we've also bought three villas in Bali: Villa Bebek in Seminyak, Villa Sagitta in Ubud and Villa Cocoa Maya in Candidasa. Together with our family's villa at San Lameer we now run the five properties as Global Villas Ltd. earned holiday goes well on our watch! It’s always fun to T R I P A D V I S O R R E V I E W S We are very serious about making sure that our guests’ hard- read our guests’ reviews. There’s something very satisfying about knowing that our guests get as much enjoyment out of our homes as we do!
