Welcome to De Kelders PRIVATE Retreat – the luxury of privacy
This secluded De Kelders PRIVATE Retreat prides itself on timelessness and tranquility. It is a weary travelers delight and not recommended for the glitzy tourist who wants a holiday resort.
The Villa is an ideal and convenient base from which to explore the wonders and attractions of the Overberg region. The house is situated on a 1000m double plot 200m from the cliff paths. Its location provides guests with the privacy to view and not to be viewed by passers by. The enclosed double plot, private garden and heated pool allow visitors to relish in the warmth of the African sun and enjoy some well-earned breathing space.
Internationally acclaimed by ELLE Decoration, Condé Nast House & Garden, HOME, National Geographic Traveler, CNBC, Leonardo TV Italy and many others.
” The De Kelders PRIVATE Retreat, near Gansbaai, has a spirit of quiet kindness, thoughtful generosity and relaxed ease where there is space for both lively conversation and rejuvenating silence.

HOUSE & GARDEN – Condé Nast
“Celebrated designer Neil Stemmet’s uncompromising green philosophy makes you sit up and notice. The idea behind the construction of De Kelders Private Villa was to celebrate creativity, both natural and human. Often amazing things in life are overlooked. It’s about taking time out from modern life and looking at a tree trunk to remind you of the dual functions of beauty and sustainability.
“I am Niël Stemmet, the owner and designer. Decorated to inspire, The Retreat is a true visual delight of South African and international art, furniture and objects. The house evolved around what is special to us. “
