Thank you Rita for your hospitality, and making us feel so incredibly welcome. Haus Am Strand is right on the beach, very professional and friendly atmosphere. It was very clean and beautifully furnished. I was surprised that it was so well priced for the location. It can easily compete with all the best holiday places on the planet, in terms... More

Things Tourists like. Genuine friendliness. Exceptional Character. Haus Am Strand is the place that we ourselves would always choose to return to on holidays. Beautifully decorated with care and love. Natural, unstuffy, humorous hosts, gardens, the artistic, the unusual. We just love this place. The host are doing her best and treat her guests like fellow human beings. The sea... More

The perfect accommodation! The perfect surroundings! The perfect hospitality! Haus am Strand is literally a 'stone's-throw-away' from the beautiful and tranquil Wilderness beach. The accommodation was clean, spacious, 'homely' and beyond-friendly hostess, Rita, was always willing to help. Haus am Strand is a MUST-STAY (and the price is ridiculously cheap!!!). Thank you Haus am Strand for an incredible honeymoon

We where on 3 weeks holiday & stayed here for 2 nights in beach bungalow,it was very roomey with a 32" tv nice lounge & kitchen.The garden was very nice with lots sun loungers,the beach was also very big,but you could not go in the sea as the currents very strong,so with no pool you could not swim.

We had a wonderful 5 nights stay in the ocean suite. The rooms are decorated with love, the view is just stunning. We know when we are back in Wilderness we want to stay there again. Rita was such a sweet host. Thanks again, hope to see you again. And last but not least, the price was very friendly, too.

This was our second visit to Wilderness during our four weeks in South Africa and we had previously stayed in a nearby guest house, which was wonderful. However, there were no vacancies on our return trip and so we booked in at Haus am Strand on a self catering basis - we were not disappointed! The location is stunning and... More

Words cannot describe the beauty of the ocean visible from your bed! We had an amazing stay in the Ocean Suite; a beautifully decorated haven that brings about happiness and tranquility - so much so that we were very sad to leave!
