About Marebella Seafront Guesthouse

We invite you to experience the relaxed atmosphere at Marebella, where Mediterranean living meets South African hospitality. Stay in spacious luxury guest rooms on the seafront, overlooking the cliffs of De Kelders. Our rooms have 180-degree uninterrupted panoramic views of Walker Bay. Experience whale watching from your room and private terrace from June to November. De Kelders is quiet and peaceful - a nature lover's dream. Attention to design detail results in the successful blending of Mediterranean and Art Deco styles.

Our passion for light and space means few doors, wide archways and open-plan living. Designed to make the most of the sea views, floor-to-ceiling windows line the front of the house. The sundeck looks over the ocean and the Hermanus mountains.

Feel like Robinson Crusoe on the stretch of endless unspoilt sandy beach called Die Plaat. Gerhard will take you swimming in the natural rock pools and walking along the cliff path to explore the caves of De Kelders.

For the adventurous there is great white shark cage diving at Shark Alley, off the coast from Gansbaai; horse riding on the beach, scuba diving, 4x4 trips into the surrounding mountains and more.

Enjoy a glass of wine from our cellar and watch spectacular sunsets over to the Cape of Good Hope. Marebella is 30 minutes on the R43 from Hermanus, on the route to L’Agulhas and 3 km from the fishing village of Gansbaai.

We enjoyed our stay at Marebella very much. The room was beautiful with a stunning sea view. Shalene and Gerhard are wonderful hosts who took care for our amazing stay with whale watching and a delicious dinner at Kloeks@Home. Unfortunately we only spent one night there. But we definitely will come back one day to stay longer.

An extraordinary place to stay. Whales just across the street and can also be observed from the terrace. The rooms are clean and serviced every day. The owners are very friendly, helpful and are keeping a personal relationship to the guests. I can highly recommend this guesthouse, even for longer stays. I stayed four nights.

Marabella was one of the most guestfriendly Bed and Breakfast houses we´ve been to during our stay in South Africa. The people there are so friendly and the ambiance is perfect for a stay with whales in the sea.

Our hosts were overwhelming friendly and couldn't have been more accommodating. Views and sounds of the whales from our room were beyond our expectations. We would certainly return here.
