“5 STAR UNFORGETTABLE PERFECT MUST STAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Things Tourists like. Genuine friendliness. Exceptional Character. Haus Am Strand is the place that we ourselves would always choose to return to on holidays.
Beautifully decorated with care and love.
Natural, unstuffy, humorous hosts, gardens, the artistic, the unusual. We just love this place. The host are doing her best and treat her guests like fellow human beings.
The sea is your big swimmingpool

Room Tip: All rooms have Sea View. Few steps to the beach. Higher floors with Wider Sea View.

The perfect accommodation! The perfect surroundings! The perfect hospitality! Haus am Strand is literally a 'stone's-throw-away' from the beautiful and tranquil Wilderness beach. The accommodation was clean, spacious, 'homely' and beyond-friendly hostess, Rita, was always willing to help. Haus am Strand is a MUST-STAY (and the price is ridiculously cheap!!!). Thank you Haus am Strand for an incredible honeymoon

Room Tip: The Garden Room opens up onto the beautiful lawn and breath-taking view of the sea!

We could not have found a more lovely, professional, clean and spectacular place to celebrate our honeymoon. Huis am Strand's owners really went the extra mile to make us (and all of there guests) comfortable, relaxed and at home. The rooms are beautifully decorated, designed to meet your every need! The location is beautiful as the house sits directly on the beach- with the ocean views from your bed and a private direct access to the beach. The house itself is well maintained with manicured gardens and plenty of areas to sit and relax. With the peaceful sounds of waves crashing- this is the PERFECT getaway for couples, young and old.

Thank you for making our honeymoon so memorable! We will be back!

We where on 3 weeks holiday & stayed here for 2 nights in beach bungalow,it was very roomey with a 32" tv nice lounge & kitchen.The garden was very nice with lots sun loungers,the beach was also very big,but you could not go in the sea as the currents very strong,so with no pool you could not swim.

We had a wonderful 5 nights stay in the ocean suite. The rooms are decorated with love, the view is just stunning. We know when we are back in Wilderness we want to stay there again. Rita was such a sweet host. Thanks again, hope to see you again. And last but not least, the price was very friendly, too.

Room Tip: They are all nice, equipped with all you need for breakfast, but I would go for the ones upstairs (o...
