This is one of our very favourite guest houses. Lovely room with the most comfortable bed and pillows and a splendid breakfast using quality products. Elsabe's hospitality is excellent and everywhere is clean and tidy.

Excellent breakfast, careful attention to detail and a charming hostess in the form of Elsabe. All these coupled with a great room and beautiful surrounds made for a wonderful three days in Wilderness.

We spent one night at Serendipity and enjoyed it thoroughly. The room was beautiful with a great attention to detail, and comfortable beds. One thing to consider is that because the guest house is a restaurant as well, there may be noise from downstairs at night. This did not bother us as it quickly quietened down after 10. The view...

We loved our stay at the Serendipity, very relaxing. The location is just perfect. Dinner was absolutely great and breakfast was lovely too with fresh fruits and croissants and eggs. The owners are very helpful. We will be back one day.

This experience was so good that we didn't want to leave. We felt at home from the very first minute. However, the food, breakfast and dinner was much much better than home, in fact it was excellent. The staff was wonderfull and the owner and her family where lovely. Arie and Jane

This could be described as a 'restaurant with rooms'. The cooking and service on both nights was at an outstanding level. The chef is well recognised for her talents and clearly also has excellent organisational abilities ( which enables her to spend a bit of time with the customers rather than just in the kitchen). The bedrooms are very comfortable,... More

Secure parking in beautiful gardens, nice welcome in the really nice dining hall. Our room was magnificent. Everything worked well, we had access to a shared balcony with great views. (A screened private area was also available). Nice toiletries and a little glass of port left in our rooms were also nice touches. Breakfast was very nice, although a lack... More
