Our stay at Wonderlings in Rooi-Els can be described in two words: Awesome experience. Our unit was excellend, fantastic views over the town and the beach, and the best of both worlds - mountains on the one side and the ocean on the other. Koos and Jenny were friendly and knowlegeable about the area. And the breakfast was really good.... More

A truly wonderful experience - we couldn't have asked for a better B&B! The facilities are excellent and very thoughtfully provided - the suite was spacious and private. The location is amazing too with a fantastic sea view. Our hosts, Jenny and Koos, are very friendly and interesting people and we'd love to stay here again when we return to... More

We stayed once again at Wonderlings B&B at Rooiels and as always enjoyed Jenny and Koos' charming hospitality, the great sea views, Jenny's lovely flower-filled garden, the very comfortable accommodation, delicious breakfasts and the wonderful fresh sea air. The local pub is only 10 minutes walk from Wonderlings and it serves good value meals or Jenny can advise on other... More

After falling in love with Rooiels Beach a couple of years ago, we looked for somewhere to stay nearby. Wonderlings was perfect. Beautiful house, spacious rooms, wonderful views and perfect hosts. The beach is very interesting with compartments made by the rocks (see picture). The sea has a lot of kelp, so maybe not too good for swimming, but tucked... More

We stayed here to have a night on the coast, as we toured from Paarl to Stanford. Wonderlings served the purpose perfectly. The room was comfortable, with excellent self catering facilities, spacious balcony and lovely views. There was lots of reading material about the local area which helped us to appreciate this interesting and historic area. It was fun to... More

After the amazing drive on the coast road (Clarence Drive), Wonderlings is the icing on the cake! The architecture is stunning, and I had views of the sea and the mountains from my huge balcony. The owners are terrific, and their advice on hikes and drives was spot on. There is wifi, if you ask them for the passcode. RooiEls... More

We stayed at this fantastic B & B in October 2011 and I have to say that it was the best we have ever stayed in. The owners were very attentive to all our needs and the rooms are amazing with a small kitchen (with coffee and tea supplied), lovely bathroom, great bed and a huge balcony overlooking the gardens...
