My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Ibitshi Guest Lodge at the end of April 2014. Our stay was fantastic and we really enjoyed our stay in the Wilderness area and also our accomodation.

...Ibitshi would be it. This is my fourth visit there and my husband's second, and there was no question when choosing a place to stay on our trip from Cape Town up the Garden Route. This place is not just accommodation – it is a destination. Michael is the lodge-owner, chef/baker extraordinaire, fantastic host and a very special friend. He... More

Myself and my wife stayed here for 3nts on our honeymoon trip along the garden route. Quite simply the standard of accommodation is out of this world and has to be seen to be believed. We stayed in an amazing room with a view overlooking the deserted kleinkrantz beach. The standard of furnishings, space, views were seriously fantastic. All of... More

If you can get in, definitely stay here! We spent 3 nights in the upstairs sea view suite ‘seaside 1’, the one with the bath overlooking the sea! We’ve never stayed in a B&B like this. The house is perfectly positioned by the beach and is an architectural dream, complete with swimming pool inside the lounge. The owner, Michael, who... More

The property is amazing, view of the water with an amazing deck, the first floor is very wide and open, with what seems to be an indoor pool. Being a carnivore myself, I was initially hesitant when I heard the breakfast was vegetarian, but the food was great. Stuff that was notable was the quiche, pancakes, mixed fruit and a... More

First the downside, if there is one: We were initially a little worried about the location of Ibitshi lodge. It's on a very quiet residential road with some pretty stunning, architecturally designed houses on one side, and the beach on the other, and it's not possible to walk to Wilderness so you'll need a car. That said, it was exactly... More

Ibitshi Guest House is as good as all the reviews say and more. A stunning property with spectacular views. Highly recommend sea view rooms. Breakfasts include freshly made breads, fruit drinks and more besides. A very friendly and informative host who clearly enjoys guests making the most of their holidays.
