4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a beautiful, large guest house overlooking the lagoon and the ocean. It is decorated impeccably and JD and Gerald make sure you have everything you need to properly explore the Garden Route (directions, maps, restaurant & sight seeing recommendations). My husband and I had a beautiful, large room (room 4) with a balcony overlooking the lagoon - there... More

Amazing place. The guys are lovely and go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one. We had an amazing meal locally and did the cheetah walk and the bird sanctuary and they were both the best. Loved it there and would definitely go back without a doubt.

Gerald and JD made us feel at home within the first second. They couldn't do enough for us and nothing was a problem. Their guesthouse is inviting, warm and homely. The breakfast they serve is fantastic, location is stunning and perfect and their recommendation for dinner at the Girlz was spot on! We loved our stay at Wilderness Manor. We... More

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

stayed here in January when it was MUCH warmer but the level of attention to detail has remained as high as ever. 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
