We received a very warm welcome for our three night stay. The restaurant was the main reason we had booked Serendipity and we were not disappointed. It was fabulous! The room was excellent and the location was superb.

Serendipity is a handsome building and is easy to find in Wilderness. Parking garage. A warm welcome and a lovely room overlooking the lagoon. All the rooms have good lagoon views and are beautifully furnished and very comfortable indeed. Super breakfast.

The setup at Serendipity is truly great. On arrival you immediately sense the guest house is there to offer luxury accommodation and service. The air conditioned rooms are tastefully furnished with a big power shower in the bathroom. The rooms lead onto a deck overlooking the lake - this calls for magic sundowners. The friendly staff really makes you feel... More

Great welcome, very high standards throughout. We particularly enjoyed the canoe ride on the river and the food. Staff very helpful. Maybe more suitable for a more mature couple but that really depends on what you're into.

Wonderful B&B. This was our 2nd time and every bit as good as the first. Everything about it from the warmth of the hosts to the sumptuous rooms, the exquisite breakfasts and the position overlooking the lagoon. The tasting menu in the restaurant was fabulous as was the wine pairings. The attention to detail and the attention that both Lizelle(the... More

The creativity of Lizelle Stolze, the chef and co-owner, stood out in the dinner we enjoyed at Serendipity. The starter alone – Carpaccio of Kudu Carpaccio & Blaauwkranz (blue cheese) Panna Cotta with Rocket Salad, Pickled Sultanas and Crouton finished with small pieces of black garlic was most memorable. Not only is she an extremely creative chef but she also... More

Wonderful welcoming hosts, overall excellent facilities including access to canoes to enjoy the lagoon & bicycles to get around Wilderness. What makes this B&B really stand out is that it also offers top-class gourmet dining and wine pairing in its own restaurant. Leave you car parked in the secure garage & enjoy a dining experience that really shouldn't be missed.
