Stayed here at the end of April. Delightful owners with a great service oriented attitude. The room, cleanliness and location of the b and b are all first class. One small complaint- the water pressure is very low. :(. Certainly worth a stay.

We stayed just one night at Shining Waters and the hosts are just delightful. You may be put off by the husband who seem rather stern at first meeting but you quickly realize he is a warm and welcoming host. I say adjust your expectations because I was thinking this was more of a guest house that a B &...

After spending two months in South Africa, we were very delighted to make a stay at Shining Waters. The room was bright, clean, large and very comfortable with a great ocean view from the balcony. Corrine and Renato were lovely hosts and offered us great recommendations for touring and restaurants. We regret not having stayed here for a longer period...

We spend 3 days here which were wonderful. Corinne & Renato are fabulous hosts. From our welcome, to the great breakfasts, the conversations around the table, the location of the house and the views - everything was all you could wish for and more. If you need a beautiful base when you are in Wilderness this is it.

You feel at home away from home! They also provided excellent restaurant info, we were sorry that we had no time to stay longer...

Just walk out the front door, cross the street and you can enjoy the white sands, sea and interesting rock formations! Sit on the bench opposite this guesthouse and view the most spectacular sunsets!

Shining Waters is run by an amazing couple, who is truly friendly, and kind. The place has a wonderful view of the ocean, but since the accommodation is on a cliff it could be quite daunting to get down there. (We however managed well). Lots of stairs (if you are unsteady on your feet, you will not like this) but...
