Of all of the guest homes that we stayed in during our two-week trip to South Africa, this was by far my favorite stay. The rooms are large and comfortable and the view is exquisite. Our hosts were very friendly and went out of their way to help us plan our activities in Wilderness; the home itself is actually not... More

Hildesheim was a lovely discovery. The setting is tranquil and the views stunning. The rooms are clean and comfortable with thoughtful finishing touches like wine glasses and a bottle opener. The beds are blissfully comfortable and warm and were greatly appreciated because we visited in winter. Tony is a wonderful host, he happily advises on places to visit in the... More

On arrival we received a warm welcome from mine host and were escorted to our spacious room. It was a very cold week end and we made use of the heater in the evenings. We had lovely and very substantial breakfasts, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We will visit again when next in the area.

A very pleasant stay, centrally located on the Garden Route. Tony and Vanessa were very gracious hosts, with Tony ensuring that we received helpful information and suggestions regarding local sites to visit. Due to it being the off-season the guest house was unoccupied and Tony offered the upgrade at no extra cost. Although we only had the optional beak fast... More

It's been 3 years since my last visit and it was as special as before. Tony and Vanessa are such amazing hosts. The beauty and peace of Hildesheim is amazing and as far as I am concerned this is the only place to stay when you are in the Wilderness area. The staff are so caring and the rooms are... More

We had a great stay in garden cottage 3. The cottage is big and well equiped. The garden is gordeous! We enjoyed to see the Knysna Loeries. The host is very friendly. The only things we missed were more channels (BVN) on the television and wifi.

This was the most amazing stay I ever had. Friendly and helpful staff, always willing to take the extra step to assist their guests. A home away from home. Will definitely recommend it to other travellers. A bird lovers heaven.
