I've stayed here twice. Both times were impeccable. Incredible hosts, unsurpassed attention to details and extremely well priced for what you get. Both times I stayed in the garden room, so comfortable. Will always remember the bustling birdlife in the garden. Delicious breakfasts! Very classy and posh. Can't fault it.

We stayed overnight here and really enjoyed it. Gerald our host was very friendly and helpful. It is in a great location opposite the lagoon and away from the busy main road. Very easy to find. Very comfortable too. Watching the sunbirds feeding at breakfast was an added bonus.

The hosts at Wilderness Manor were superb. Their attention to detail was great and the breakfast was divine. We had a wonderful relaxing time at the house and enjoyed the stunning views of the lagoon and sea.

Staying at Wilderness Manor on this trip was no different to the other three occasions, when we received a warm and friendly welcome from Gerald and JD always make us feel as though we are coming home. The accommodation decor is tasteful and comfortable, and we always enjoy the lovely view of the lagoon from the window whatever the weather.... More

My husband & I along with our brother & sister in law spent one wonderful week in January 2015 @ Wilderness Manor. This was our second consecutive visit. There are so many reasons to stay here (lovely large rooms, wonderful amenities, absolutely delicious breakfast) but I am certain that guests return without a doubt because of Gerald & JD. They...

We were just driving thru and stayed only one night - but had we known just how comfortable this B&B was, and how nice the owners are we would have stayed longer! It is situated right on the lagoon - close enough to walk into town and just far away enough to feel more like the country. The breakfast was... More

The service, attention to detail and hospitality we experienced during our stay were beyond compare. Breakfast every morning was a feast. With so much to do in the area and top quality restaurants within walking distance we had a fantastic holiday.

Gerald & JD are great hosts. Nothing seems too much trouble for them, and they genuinely seem to enjoy their business. Lovely accommodation, clean spacious rooms. Beautiful lounge, complimentary drinks in the evening, and great location with views of the lagoon. Our second stay with them, and have no hesitation in recommending Wilderness Manor.
