My second stay at The Wallow Guest House. It was short, but i'm not sure that you ever have enough time in the Wildernis (unless you move there) We stayed in the most eastern room, which was fantastic because we got to watch the sunrise from our front terrace in absolute peace. Dave and Moreen are fantastic hosts who will... More

We stayed in one of the apartments for three nights as we made our way to Cape Town along the Garden Route. The accommodation is very good, clean, spacious and excellent value. The owners, who live on part of the top floor of what is a very large converted house, are friendly and helpful without interfering. The location is a... More

We recently spend 5 nights at the Wallow. The apartment was lovely. Very clean and well equipped. The atmosphere was wonderfully relaxing and I certainly will recommend this guest house to anyone who wants to stay in the Wilderness area. Waking up to such a beautiful view is "food for the soul". Dave and Maureen were friendly and very welcoming.

We were so happy to return to the Wallow for the second year in a row. We just knew that we would be getting a home from home stay at Maureen and Dave's guesthouse. Everything was as we expected. From the friendly reception, the neatness, the comfort, the views, the peace and quiet right down to the walk through the... More

We stayed here for one night during our trip from Cape Town to Jo'burg. The Wallow is not close to the centre of Wilderness, but it is in Wilderness Heights. The view from the guesthouse is fantastic. The owner of the place gave us a warm welcome and we booked 2 apartments for 2 persons each. The apartments were huge,... More

We stayed here for just one night but were very impressed with the location and the unit itself. The owners are incredibly friendly and happy to chat especially about local wildlife. The apartment was very big and totally self contained. The outside seating area has a great view of the sea and Wilderness beach below. There are 2 routes up... More

We felt completely at home and were happy to have a couple of nights at Maureen and Dave's place. Our two bedroom mini apartment was spacious, clean, and well-equipped with everything we needed. The delicious breakfast was personally served by the owners and we enjoyed the conversation/tips as well. The location on the hill is secluded with nice views overlooking... More

Wow - we were passing through Wilderness at about the time to find somewhere to spend the night and got very luck with finding the Wallow. A chance phone call for a one night stay turned into 3 nights and we wished we could have stayed longer... What a beautiful place, and Maureen and Dave made it a very special... More

I cannot recommend The Wallow Guest House more highly. We had family in George which couldn't accommodate us on this trip so we needed somewhere to stay. As we have to small children (6 ans 1) we needed something which was child friendly. Very well equipped, very clean and very quiet. Dave and Maureen were fantastic and accommodating.
