We cannot really describe how fantastic a stay is with Kevin & Elsie, they are just the most wonderful people who make you feel so at home and you leave feeling like you have made friends for life. My husband and I were traveling the garden route in Feb and were told by a friend who had done the trip... More

We enjoyed our stay during our trip to South Africa. The host were very kind and offered help with anything no matter what time it was. The location was beautiful and we will recommend this to our friends and family.

Wow. Its is not often that all the boxes are ticked when travelling away. Our flight from Cape Town was a mere 35 minutes, and transfer to Interlaken Guest House 15 min. We were met by Kevin and Elsie, who proved to be proud and attentive hosts of their establishment. The view from one's room onto the lake is unsurpassed.... More

Much more than you could imagine of a house in the "Wilderness" - a large but comfortable room and a great balcony with an astonishing sight over the lagoon (which looks like a lake). I spontaneously decided to stay one more night.

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
