2nd visit of many still to come. Good support service with personal touch. Amazing food, cut above the rest. Very fair price for what you receive. All the above makes me a smiling return customer without thinking twice when we're in the area again. Would recommend for all that enjoy quality and good value.

Also we ate in this fabulous restaurant before this was the first time we stayed in the guesthouse. Apart from all these lovely gadgets in connection with our anniversary I was highly impressed and don’t know where to start. In each room is a carafe with sherry and dark chocolate “delicious”! The bathroom looked like mine at home. Nothing was... More

great location, area is lovely with a fabulous beach - the host had thought of everything making for a comfortable stay, restaurant good too although it was not as great as the talking up it had received. Flava in town does good lunches

We loved staying at Serendipity. The owners were most accommodating and friendly and offered advice about local restaurants as their facility was closed for the evening. Serendipity is a touch of luxury amidst a beautiful setting with peaceful surroundings.

The accommodation was very very comfortable and we had a balcony that overlooked the water. MOST amazing was the hospitality. We went for dinner and were invited for cocktails with other guests in a beautiful lounge. We were given menus and it was 5 courses. But there were choices. Every single dish was explained in detail including the pairing. All... More

The food was excellent and the secondary 'entertainment' by Rudolph and Lizelle by far outweighed our expectations. She is a very gifted chef and the various taste sensations she creates on a single plate is phenomenal. She surpasses the norm and pushes the envelope with her creativity. Rudolph is a wine raconteur and his wine pairing suggestions are off the... More

Excellent - a bath would have made the difference! The rest was fantastic - highly recommended. Great location wish we had more time to do some paddling. Easy to find and safe parking - will visit again.

This was our third visit to Serendipity but our first time as residents. We spent two days here to celebrate a birthday and we were not disappointed with the comfort and facilities of the guesthouse. We had a lovely view of the lagoon and we were well placed for the facilities of Wilderness. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and... More

After a long drive, Serendipity was a welcome overnight stop for the four of us. We had heard about their restaurant's reputation, but unfortunately our one night was on a Sunday, so we missed out on that treat. However, our hosts were very welcoming and helped us with an alternative eating place nearby, which was also very good. Delicious choice... More

Returned again, We found the rooms are great clean well furnished, the welcome warm and personal. If you want to eat with one of the best chefs in South Africa.... the restaurant is excellent. Will come back as soon as possible
