The breakfast and service and how it was presented as to be commmented on. Will definately spend another visit at this super guest villa. Also must mention that the hosts were so accomodating and welcoming. One not to... More

This is the 3rd time we visited Xanadu Guest Villa. My wife and I come here for quality time, to relax and unwind. The owners Albert and Tersia each time remembers us and this time upon our arrival immediately asked "how's the baby doing?" who we left at the grandparents - we are definitely not just a number like you...

A very comfortable och luxury guesthouse at the Wilderness Beach. Nice rooms and a lovely garden to relax in. The beach is just a few meters away. Try to book the suite on the top floor with a terrace with 180 view. But note that the location just at the beach will make you hear the ocean the whole time,... More

We stayed for one night this month on our journey along the Garden Route. This is a beautiful home though maybe outdated and the views are spectacular. We loved our time on the beach. We just felt that the owners were a little impersonal and we did not relaxed here the way we did every where else we stayed.

We had 12 other guests to attend to .Had you stayed longer we may have been able to connect better with you. Why do you fail to mention that we upgraded you at NO EXTRA CHARGE to a... More

It was one of the finest locations on our South Africa Tour. Albert - as a former lawyer - and his beautiful wife Tersia have realized their life dream in a perfect translation of "luxury for our guests". We had the "Neptune Suite" and we felt like Neptune: with an incredible view direct onto the sea. The big panorama windows... More

After a 5 day trip around South Africa, this was our last stop before returning back to Cape Town to see out the rest of our holiday. My boyfriend and I were very excited to spend the last night of our trip here as the photos/location looked beautiful. When we arrived we were blown away by the guest house, the... More

Hallo Janine & boyfriend, Is it not incomprehensible that the review of a teenage girl and her boyfriend , a one nighter , paid for by a parent , with her first review , is given equal exposure against seasoned guests that after a stay for a week or a month scores their stay at 10/10 ? Every guest is... More

We have stayed in Wilderness many times before, but this is our favourite place so far. We stayed in the Neptun suite, so beautiful, so private.... Lovely chats with people from all over around the breakfast table. A wonderful stay!

A wonderful unique boutique guesthouse with direct access to the beach and breathraking sea view (including of the odd dolphin) from beds /bedrooms. We stayed for two nights and couldn't fault the place. The owners were very hospitable, giving us advice on local activities and places to visit. Each room is slightly different ensuring that there is maximum seaview in... More

Xanadu is a beautiful 5 star guest house, right on Wilderness beach. It is immaculate both inside and out in the lovely garden, above the beach. Rooms are all luxurious, with the 4 sea view suites just a little better. Beds are extra large and super comfortable; bathrooms excellent. Breakfasts are taken at a large shared table (opt out option... More
