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.

This guest house is just off the highway away from the sea but overlooking the lagoon. In fact it feels like you're overlooking somewhere im the middle of the continent. Room was very impressive & quiet. Great breakfast too.

The place has beautiful views and is easily accessed from the N2 which makes it an excellent base for exploring the Garden Route. Our room was spacious, with a beautiful terrace and an excellent bed. But what makes it stand out are its nice hosts, Kevin (great cook) and Elsie (great recommendations!). We can only recommend this!

Other than landing the smallest room, this was a great experience. The couple who run the guest house are a delight and made us feel at home. I wished we could have spent more than one day - we were travelling along the Garden route. Tip: Base yourself here for several days and see the area. The views over the... More

We don't know where to start- our visit here was just amazing so we stayed even longer than planned for 7 nights in total. Interlaken is a bit outside of wilderness, what we very appreciated. Our room was one of the best rooms during our trip-very good bed, nice furniture, good wifi signal and very clean.The highlight is the stunning... More

Everything worked here. From the fantastic couple running it to the large and modern rooms topped off by the stunning view over the lake and National Park. We felt really welcome in this beautiful place.

What makes this location our top choice in Wilderness is the view over the lake (from the bed!) and the family atmosphere. We stayed for 4 nights (longer than we actually planned) and when we left, we felt like family members. Elsie and Kevin are lovely hosts and prepared the breakfast on the terrasse every morning with passion. We would... More

We really enjoyed our short stay here. The owners make you feel at home from the time you arrive until you leave. The room was very comfortable with a fantastic view of the lakes and island. The breakfast was great. We will definitely stay here again if we ever stay in Wilderness again.
