Good food, good view Access road (3km long) is steep, narrow and in bad condition. Not for the faint of heart. Room very cold with inadequate small wall mounted heater. Lights very dim, couldn't read at night. TV set so small that only one person at a time sitting close up could watch Strong unpleasant ongoing air freshener odour in... More

Good day Movealong2014. Some years back an American couple in their 80’s, celebrating their Golden Wedding anniversary arrived for a few night stay. At dinner that night I realised that our lodge was not the right place for them. I suggested that maybe I could recommend somewhere more suitable which they happily accepted. I booked them in to a guesthouse... More

Porcupine Pie was without doubt the nicest place I have ever stayed in. The hospitality, the views, the conversation with John as well as Judy's brilliant artwork - truly the most incredible place to stay on honeymoon. Awesome hiking trails to add some fitness in there too :) Full marks undoubtedly! Phil and Talia Hugo

We stayed at Porcupine Pie during our honeymoon in South Africa in March this year. I've never stayed anywhere this awesome before. Just everything at Porcupine Pie is perfect - the accommodation, the views, the hospitality, John's amazing cooking. I really hope we'll be back one day. Thank you so much for having us.

We recently stayed at Porcupine Pie and loved every minute of it. Everything was perfect from the start : the very warm welcome, the spacious and beautifully appointed bedroom, unsurpassed views, the large & comfortable lapa where we had our delicious breakfasts. If you are feeling energetic and can tear yourself away from the view, there is a lovely walking... More

What an experience! Looking for a place to get away from it all, we discovered this gem in the Southern Cape on the Garden Route near Wilderness, South Africa. It is difficult to distinguish between the magnificent views, overwhelming hospitality and the spaciousness and luxury of the accomodation. Situated amongst numerous sight seeing trips, this is just the place to... More

We loved porcupine pie, it is a great get away and an awesome setting. The view is amazing and you find yourself staring into the valley. On the bad side the road in and out is a bit much and tends to make you want to stay in rather than mission out on the road. We also found the "self... More

Hi Tim, Thank you for your review. We were pleased that you enjoyed your stay here but were wish to respond to two of your comments.

We were searching online for a unique and special destination to spend our honeymoon and came across Porcupine Pie. It looked like the perfect place to spend a few days relaxing after all the wedding stress was over. We checked Tripadvisor and after reading a few reviews, quickly realized we'd discovered an absolute gem. We immediately called to book our... More

We stayed at Porcupine Pie Boutique lodge during our last holiday to South Africa. It is without a doubt one of the best lodges we ever visited! Perfect location to relax and enjoy the area. Great hospitality and brilliant service provided by John. We wanted to stay longer! We will be back soon!
