Me and my wife enjoyed our stay with Jon and his staff very much. Our room as well as the guest house was very clean, spacious and well furnished. Jon and his staff were very friendly and helpful as well as the breakfast served was well prepared and fresh every day.

Attention to detail is obvious. Examples:- 1) Upon return from breakfast, our room had been serviced and was immaculate. 2) A multi plug adapter was there for charging several 'gadgets' at once. 3) Allocated, safe parking space. 4) John, the friendly host, happily advises on restaurants and even books them for you. etc. etc.

Shining Waters, Wilderness We booked thinking the guest houses position would allow us to be able to walk to the beach easily, unfortunately not the case unless you can challenge quite a few steps down a steep drop. However, we had a car so this was not a problem to us, we just drove to Wilderness Beach. The guest house...

A nice B&B to stay in Wilderness area, it's directly "on the cliffs". We had the suite with a big terrace on 1st floor with fantastic views to Wilderness wild beach during days and clear, dark heaven on nights - full of millions of bright stars... Jon and his friendly team are going always the last mile for everything you...

Beautiful B&B, well positioned and our host John was fantastic. Breakfast was most enjoyable. We were able to explore the surrounding garden route with ease and we were very central which allowed us to do and see more of the surrounding sights

Stayed at Shining Waters for two nights... Stayed in Room 5, which offered a nice twin bed (put together as a double), a very nice bathroom and a window facing the ocean (spotted dolphins from the window on the first morning). Hosts were kind and helpful. Everything was clean. The place had a nice pool and an excellent view to...
