This was our 4th visit to Serendipity, so that in itself speaks louder than words. The guesthouse sits at the far end of waterside rd and backs onto the lovely lagoon. Complimentary canoes are provided to idle away the hours rowing upstream towards the waterfall. The water is warm and shallow in many places, so you can easily jump out... More

Everything about this guest house was superb. breakfast nicely presented. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The service was excellent and the restaurant was exceptional. The guest house was well located and close to other restaurants and the beach. The owner and her husband always had a smile and were very friendly

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.
