Xanadu (according to Coleridge's poem) was Kublai Khan's pleasure dome, and Albert and Tersia's home certainly lives up to this description. It is in a stunning location on the beach, the rooms are spacious and the whole house is sumptuously decorated. Every detail has been thought about and they have used the best quality materials. They are also so welcoming... More

A five-star location with hosts that go beyond their needs to make you comfortable. Stunning Bath and a de ck veranda overlooking the quite, pristine beach. An ideal retreat for people who don't need noise the whole time.

Our friends recommended this B&B and what a great find. The house is on such a beautiful spot on the beach. Rooms large and a good breakfast is served. The beach is stunning and quiet and we enjoyed long walks every day. Our room had a beautiful view of the sea. Wilderness is a lesser known beach area on the... More

What a location on the beautiful beach in Wilderness! This is a really lovely Guest House run by Tersia and Albert. We had a beautiful, spacious bedroom suite (Neptune) with elegantly traditional decor but the huge bathroom was very contemporary, with a free standing bath overlooking the Ocean and a huge terrace with magnificent views. We saw all the other... More

Our first impression of Xanadu was the beautiful and magnificent carved wood front door and as it opened we were warmly welcomed by the staff who immediately called the owner, Albert. We were made to feel very much at home in this beautiful and spacious guest house. It overlooks the sea with a tropical garden through which one could can... More

This is our second visit and it will not stop there. The location and ocean view is amazing. The suites are all different but stunning. Wilderness itself is a little gem with great restaurants and accessibility to many places of interest. Hospitality is unlike anywhere we have ever stayed.

Albert and Tesia have built a wonderful family home over the last 15 years on the Wilderness Sand dunes, and developed this into a beautiful and palatial guest house. It is spatial, special and sumptuous. Quality furnishings, beautiful collections of art, and tasteful decorations. The gardens are on various levels, all immaculate with abundant dining areas, sun chairs, and sunbathing... More

We loved the walks down from the gardens at the villa straight on to the wonderful beach. The hosts provide chairs and umbrellas for guests to enjoy. Inside the villa itself the views are magnificent and the furnishings live up to the grandeur of the location. Versace meets Hollywood! Excellent breakfasts, comfy beds. Can't really fault
