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

We have stayed at Wonderlings B&B frequently over the past 5 years and always look forward to each new visit. The hosts, Jenny and Koos, are very charming and welcoming. The accommodation is excellent and the views of the sea and the mountains are delightful. The breakfast is delicious and beautifully presented. Jenny's garden is always full of interest with... 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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wonderlings B&B is located in the quiet village of Rooi Els on the eastern edge of False Bay. We are positioned on the Cape Whale Route and in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom. You will stay in a luxury suite, sandwiched between the sea and the mountains. The village is a registered Conservancy in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve and so, apart from 1300 plant species, guests share their lives with the rich fauna that moves through the fence-free area. These include baboon, antelope, otters, hyrax, leopards, porcupines, genets, hares and 160 bird species. Activities include swimming, diving, birding, cycling, climbing and hiking, with numerous marked trails in the area. Wonderful drives, wine routes and golf courses are in the close vicinity. ... more   less
