We had a large self catering apartment which was good. The owner was helpful - sorted out a problem with the tv rapidly, An aircon would have been a plus as it did get quite humid. Lots of nice restaurants close but not really walking distance (and theres only one taxi in Wilderness).

We were in suite 5 which is a lovely spacious suite. Parking was close to the unit and the beach was very close-by. We arrived late and Andre made contact to check that we knew the route and again gave directions. Parking was very close to Suite 5 were we stayed. It was very spacious and the staff were friendly...

During our garden route trip we found this amazing guest house on a cliff in Wilderness. Andre & his wife are welcome us with open arms. It feels like coming home and we highly recommend to visit the Dolphin Guesthouse in Wilderness when you are around in this area.

What an amasing stunning visit. Loved this guesthouse. Lovely breakfasts in the morning. The house is on the beach and you have a walkway of around 200 steps and you are on the beach. Will visit again. I can recommend this place anytime.

This guesthouse is situated right on the beach. We booked the sea view room and it was wonderful to lye in the super comfy bed and watch the ocean. Breakfast was delicious and walks on the beach magnificent. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Overall a great place to stay!

I've had the luck to stay for one night in the very spacious guest flat with a fully equipped open plan kitchen, a lounge with a fire place, a bathroom with a jacuzzi-tub plus extra shower and the bedroom. This is a place where guests feel welcome for sure, the hosts pay attention to details, even beach towels are provided....

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.
