Kevin and Elsie were great! We initially stayed just one night, but ended up returning a few nights later even though Wilderness was a bit out of the way for us. Our two rooms were clean and comfortable and opened up to a large shared balcony with a fantastic view of a lake and valley below. Breakfast was made to... More

Though Interlaken truly reminds you of the original place in Switzerland, it DOES have some rightness to be called that way. Located high above the Wilderness Lagoon and just minutes away from the ocean, it is indeed "Between the Lakes". The room was wonderful with truly AMAZING views of the lagoon, and so was the hospitality of the owners. A... More

We are 2 couples who stayed with Elsie and Kevin for two nights - they were very friendly and we felt home immediately. The view from the balcony was so nice that you can easily spent time outside and relax while having a sundowner. If we had more time we would have liked to stay longer.

Kevin and Elsie were excellent hosts. They made excellent breakfasts, helped us plan our day of hiking, and accommodated us for an extra night. Everything was great, from the view over the lake to the comfy beds.

This is an obvious "yes" for anybody looking for a special place to stay in the Garden Route. The views are truly unsurpassed, and the accommodation really comfortable and well thought through. The owners are passionate about food and can cook up a storm for dinner (e.g. the best ribs in town) in addition to a scrumptious breakfast, at your... More

Had a wonderful stay with Elsie and Kevin who took us in at very short notice as the accommodation we had booked elsewhere was not good. We stayed in their newly built cottage for 6 where there were incredible views and very comfortable rooms. Kevin is a great chef so well worth having them cook a meal or two for... More

Kevin and Elsie made us all feel so welcome when we stayed in March. The accommodation was beautiful with stunning mountain views - it was perfect for us. Home cooked food was absolutely delicious and the company was even better. Couldn't rave about this place enough!

Well situated Guest House for places along the Garden Route. Kevin is the master chef making delicious breakfasts to order and he and Elsie ensure your... More

Everything was good and we can reccommend it to everybody! The breakfast was great and Kevin was also very helpful! It is located between the sea and the lake and you have a wonderful view on the lake.
