Everything said about this beautiful and elegant guest house is true. Gerald and JD do everything that they can to make your stay enjoyable. Upon our arrival Gerald gave us an extremely helpful briefing on places to visit, restaurants to try out as well as instructions about the house and safety. This area is quite a safe one and we...

Our one night stop over in Wilderness turned out to be so much more after meeting Gerald and JD; the best guest house owners in South Africa. We had no knowledge of Wilderness prior to our our visit, but Gerald and JD couldn't have done more or given up more time in making sure all 5 members of the family... More

The Wilderness Manor guest house is beautifully presented and perfectly positioned. Gerald and JD couldn't have done more for us to facilitate an enjoyable visit on this part of our tour, which included suggesting a beautiful walk to a local waterfall. We are not surprised that they enjoy such high levels of repeat bookings. All the best to you from... More

Just returned from a one night stay at Wilderness Manor and can only say that Gerald and JD are a credit to the South African hospitality industry. Their warmth, their attention to detail, their ability to make you feel so special and at home, even if just for the one night is second to none! Breakfast too was amazing, fresh... More

The guest house continues to ofer a very high level of service, from a welcome G&T (or other drink !) on arrival, down to a wonderfully prepared and very varied breakfast in the morning. Wish we could have... More

We stayed here for one night only on our travels through the Garden Route. Gerald and JD were so welcoming sharing a glass of wine with us whilst pointing out things to do/see in the area. I would have loved to have spent more time there, rooms were huge and comfortable and beautifully styled. Nothing was a problem for them... More

Our extended family of 7 stayed here for one night on our Garden Route drive from Pt E to Cape Town in late July 2014. I only wish it would have been longer. Beautiful home full of perfect decor and antiques, heavy wood furniture; two lovely common rooms and several bedrooms - we had the entire place, as it sleeps... More

My wife and I stayed one night on our way back to Cape Town and from the moment we arrived until we left both Gerald and JD could not do enough for us from telling us about places to visit to the best restaurants. The house is very nice and everything you could ask for is at hand. Sorry we... More
