Great location, well informed re restaurants, great reception when checking in. Bathroom a wee bit small. A bath would have been the cherry on the top. I do not understand why my review must be 200 characters. This is really not called for. Short and precise and to the point is all that one need.

Mes Amis is outside the town of Wilderness overlooking a fabulous beach. The views from our room were amazing and could be enjoy from a patio just outside our room. You can walk to the village (about 30 mins) on the beach which is accessible by wooden stairs and steep walkway from Mes Amis. Some guests might find this difficult... More

It was a wonderful stay in our favorite place: Wilderness. The hosts were friendly efficient and relaxed. I do think that advantage was taken with the price charged as it seems to remain high season in this area for a very extended period? The room was lovely and our bicycles were kept in a special storage place- wow, very accommodating.... More

What a wonderful location, and great hosts. I would highly recommend this place to any traveler coming to South Africa. I would also highly recommend a restaurant in Wilderness recommended to us by our hosts "The Girls" restaurant , where we had a truely fantastic meal the evening we stayed here. (Although the location near a petrol station may be... More

This place has a beautiful location at the top of the beach with stairs down to the sea. We were well taken care of. Room had all we needed and a lovely view. We enjoyed the breakfast. Good value for money.

The location is just stunning! Great views in both good and bad weather. We stayed for three nights and the room was very clean and the mini-bar is practically at cost so very easy! The owners Gerhard and Anna are excellent hosts and they serve up a great breakfast. Really enjoyed the Scotsman Porridge. The staff are all very friendly.... More

Mes Amis lives up to its name. From the first hearty welcome to the last HUGE goodbye hugs, we felt like we were Gerhardt and Anna's privileged friends. After settling into a beautiful, immaculate room with a stunning view of the sea and sky, we took a walk on the beach, which we had all to ourselves. Everything has been... More

Mes Amis Guest House is a lovely place where you may be able to watch whales from your room during migration. Our room was light, airy and nicely decorated. It had access to a patio with chairs where one could sit and watch the beach and Indian ocean. The bed was comfortable and the small bath room had a good... More
