Highly recommended for a few nights stopover on The Garden Route. Great atmosphere and wonderful service from Gerald and JD. Everything is beautifully presented. Watch the birdlife (sunbirds, touracos and more) at breakfast.

On a recent trip along the Garden route myself and my partner stayed at the Wilderness Manor for three nights, two on the way up the coast and one on the way back. This was simply the best accommodation I have ever stayed in. Gerald and JD were fantastic hosts with every detail taken care of. The room was beautiful,... More

JD and Gerald really look after their guests and make them feel like visiting friends. From the welcome chat, the perfectly appointed room, the discussions on what we would do each day and detailed information from the 'map table', even on the day we were leaving, through to the most elegant and delicious breakfasts. The breakfast extra was putting out... More

Gerald and JD are the most welcoming of hosts, with a beautifully furnished house and the best breakfast on the trip. The house was wonderfully quiet as it fronts the lagoon - no traffic noise hence wonderful sleep in comfy bed. V professional approach combined with warmth and thoughtfulness made for a memorable stay. Would certainly return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our six day visit to Wilderness and Wilderness Manor. Gerald and JD were wonderful hosts and could not have done more to make our Anniversary trip from the UK more memorable. The rooms were spacious, beautifully furnished with stunning views over the lagoon.

What a great stay was this! These guys where born to be hosts. They gave us great advice of where to go and where to eat. For our journey the second day they also had good tips. The rooms are exquisit! I felt like a princess there. Gerald and JD thank you for the awesome time!

Gerald and DJ are excellent and gracious hosts. The hospitality and advice offered offered is first rate and we appreciated the ride home after dinner. I ended up seeing stuff I would not ordinarily have bothered with in the area and the trips were well worthwhile. The accommodation was excellent; the photos do not do the house justice.
