We booked a double room with seaview. We became a suite with a sitting area and a big bedroom. The view of the ocean was great. Had direct access to the beach. Breakfast was great - one could chose from a breakfast menu and was freshly prepared. Sorry that we stayed only one night. Lots of dinner options in Wilderness.

We were pleasantly surprised at the large, spacious apartment , spotlessly clean, with every possible amenity and set in lovely gardens and very comfortable. The location was perfect, close to the sea and within easy distance of many lovely day drives along the coast or into the beautiful mountains and passes. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and we would... More

We enjoyed our stay, wish it was for a few more days. We stayed in the garden units, each room has its own coffee making facilities and there is also a kitchen and lounge - ideal for 2 or more couples on holiday together. Friendly staff, clean rooms, nice outdoor space, great view of the ocean and excellent breakfast.

Lovely room with amazing views. We found Andre to be very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was delicious with a wide variety to choose from, not just the run of the mill bacon and eggs one comes to expect from a B&B. The kitchen staff were also very friendly. Pity we could only stay for one night - will definitely... More
