The view from the rooms is stunning. Watching whales passing by while you are taking a bath yourself... To the beach it's just a few steps through the garden and down a staircase. Having breakfast with other guests at one big table is nice, too.

What a truly amazing guest house! Immaculately decorated, the service was fantastic, the room very private. Certainly the best accommodation I have experienced thus far.I will definitely recommend Xanadu as the place to stay in Wilderness.

This place was everything I hoped for and more! Real luxury in a beautiful house that was furnished tastefully and comfortably. From our balcony we watched whales dancing in the sea. There was easy access to the largely empty sandy beach down a few steps through the garden. Breakfast and was well-cooked and plentiful and there were several good restaurants... More

it was a lovely stay there, our hosts and the staff around was very friendly, our suite (Neptune) was just amazing! Situated on the top level we've had a great view over the beach.

Exceptional, stunning, welcoming and amazing. The owners of Xanadu have got it absolutely 100% right. Paying extra for the presidential suite was perhaps the best decision i took duirng our 1 month in South Africa - we will always stay there when visiting SA. We are both very hard customers to please and this place is honestly worth making any... More

Lovely hosts, and a breathtaking setting. Very comfortable bed and breakfast. This website is forcing me to make my review atleast 200 characters. That's annoying. Complete opposite of our lovely stay at Xanadu

I go to the George/ Knysna area every 8 weeks on business (and have for the past 2 and a half years), and stay at Xanadu every time. It is so luxurious, quiet, relaxing and beautiful that I don't even want to look elsewhere. Highly, highly recommended.
