This is an amazing place to stay, The house is so interesting in its own right as the owners have such an eclectic collection of all sorts of things from their travels. The rooms are all at the top of the house, which means that they have views across the estuary. All the rooms are large and en-suite with all... More

A great stay, a great find, undoubtedly one of the best of my recent trip. I saw it advertised on the Portfolio brochure and went looking. Unfortunately they were fully booked for that night but managed to get a nice room for the next one. This place is just great, only four room, beautifully appointed and immaculatedly maintened. Open airy... More

Excellent location and easy to find.Large clean, comfortable room with balcony overlooking the lagoon. Gerald and JD were very attentive hosts who recommended local places to visit and things to do. Excellent breakfast cooked to order. Good local restaurants either short walk or drive away.

We stayed at JD & Gerald's guest house based on the reviews we had read on Trip Advisor and we were not in the least bit disappointed. The home itself is beautifully appointed, very comfortable and inviting, immaculate. The rooms and beds are spotless and extremely comfortable and equally tastefully appointed. Gerald and JD are fantastic hosts - nothing is... More

We stayed just one night at Wilderness Manor and immediately regretted not booking for longer. Gerald and JD were fantastic hosts who genuinely want you to love your stay and wilderness as much as they do. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk into the town centre but it's a very safe walk and we walked home from town... More

Our travel agent selected this guest house for our stay in Wilderness and it was a marvellous choice. Our hosts were so kind, courteous and welcoming. The room was spotless and had all the facilities you could wish for and we had a wonderful view. There were two lounges if you wanted to relax - it was like home from... More

We spent 3 nights at the guest house. Stunning house, beautiful and quiet surroundings, good breakfast and very lovely hosts with lots of useful advises what to do in the area. Thank you Gerald and DJ, we had a wonderful time at yours and felt as comfortable as one feels at home.
