I have visited The Beach House regularly over the years and have always found it to be a great place to stay, clean, comfortable and plenty of sea views... stay here! Lots of outdoor stuff to do like hiking and canoeing... it's called Wilderness for a reason!

One the best places I've ever stayed! It has an excellent vibe, its hosts are nice and make you feel warm and well received. The food is amazing, the rooms have wonderful views and the beds are really comfortable. Annie, the host of this backpackers, is one of the most amazing women I've ever met! Juliana. Colombia

I would like to thank Lieze for a wonderful stay at the Beach House. The staff was anything but cold and unfriendly (like I've read in a previous review) ... on the contrary, you guys made me feel right at home. The location is absolutely perfect, close to the beach, shops and restaurants ... and the views from the dorms...

This backpackers is perched right above Wilderness Beach, and is about a 10 minutes walk from the small village. Beautiful views, nice property, good location. The dorms were comfortable, roomy, and had an amazing sunrise view. However, the staff I interacted with were rather curt, unfriendly, and not forthcoming. They seemed knowledgeable on the area, but only once probed.

For experienced or dedicated backpacker who like non-party places with friendly staff, nice guest and yummi pizza from the stone-oven this is a great stay for a couple of days. Only the parking space is a little limited.

The beach house has been a favorite of my partner and mine. Annie runs the joint and is like an adopted mother to her guests. She makes you feel more welcome than you do at home. When we were staying in Sedgefield and Knysna, we would drive back to Wilderness just to have a beer and eat the delicious homemade...

We checked in around 7 p.m. before somebody showed us around. After we payed our bill we noticed, that it was not possible to buy anything to eat at the hostel. But eating food, bought from outside was prohibited, too. It was also prohibited to consume drinks from outside. So, we were forced to eat something in the city and...

The hostel is a very good place for one night in transit, nicely situated off the main road overlooking the beach. The room was simply furnished and clean, sleep quality was good and the staff very friendly. If you are looking for basic and cheap accommodation, you’ll find good value here – spare yourself the breakfast though and go to...

Just spent the most amazing weekend here. Rooms were spotless and very comfortable. Bearing in mind that this is a backpackers hostel, I expected it to be somewhat noisy but it was not. Our hostess, Annie, made us feel very welcome and her staff are friendly and helpful. I cannot wait to come back. A huge thank you Annie. P.S....

I have stayed at the Wilderness Beach House three times now and will keep returning. Annie is like a Mom to the youngsters who stay there and nothing is ever too much for her to organise! One must remember that her market is mainly Backpackers and they get a really good deal. If you want more privacy you have to...
