We visited Porcupine Pie two years ago for our honeymoon and went back this year for our second anniversary. Both times were absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much to John and Judy for making our stay there magnificent!

Being nestled in a private cabin with a great view in the mountains and just a drive away from the ocean at the same time was an absolute amazing honeymoon. John and his wife are really great hosts and their food is wonderful.

We loved our short stay at porcupine pie. They were extremely accommodating & helped us to have a comfortable stay whilst traveling with our baby. The views are incredible and the chalets and main laps area are both really comfortable. We spent an afternoon at the pool & walked from the guest house to a beautiful waterfall nearby. The location... More

We have stayed at this little jewel in the Wilderness seven times now, returning year after year as the beauty of the location, peace, relaxation and warm welcome from John, Judy and the dogs can't be beaten. Just returned home to Scotland and we're already planning our next trip. We can't recommend Porcupine Pie highly enough - don't miss it!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in March - and we only wish that we had longer! The complete seclusion of this guesthouse is it's main pulling point, along with the unrivaled views and pure tranquility. The accommodation is well appointed and John and Judy are the perfect hosts. We will definitely be returning at some point!

Why this place hasn't got 5* I just don't understand! We stayed at the porcupine pie boutique lodge for 2 nights during a 3 week trip to south africa, how we wish we had booked longer! For us, this was the best place we stayed during our whole trip. The lodges are about a 15 min drive outside of wilderness... More

Wonderful Honeymoon destination! Quiet, secluded and absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Tough Porcupine Pie is tucked away in the Wilderness Valley it's close to Wilderness Town and other activities.... You will have plenty to do and even a few ticks off the bucket list i'm sure! John and Judy will let you feel like you're part of their family and they spoiled us... More

My wife and I had a weekend away and stayed at Porcupine Pie. Our hosts were great and very friendly! The setting is stunning and chalets are so well equipped and just lovely to stay in. We would recommend it to anybody who wants a weekend of peace and quiet in an amazing setting!

Porcupine Pie was part of our honeymoon roadtrip. And wow was I glad I had booked. The location is amazing and the views were breath taking. Our chalet was stunning with a kingsize bed, large bath and shower, mostly private balcony and amazing views that looked over the valley. John and Judy were amazing hosts with impeccable attention to detail... More

We found PPBL a wonderful place to stay. Atop the hill, once you arrived everything was perfect form the fantastic room with a view to the service and attention from John who, as well as being a great cook, was happy to advise the best places to visit in the area. We will be back!
