“Magnificent Place on The Dunes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We only spent one night at Mes Amis BNB. The view above the Ocean is just absolutely stunning. We enjoyed watching the sunset with a bottle of the best Shiraz! The host was very friendly. The rooms are inviting and very well furnished and the beds are comfy and big. Breakfast was very nice. The person that gave a bad review about this place was obviously very picky, no locks on the toilet/bathrooms, who cares! If its for couples I'm pretty sure you don't need a door ;) The rooms have the most amazing views. Thank you Mes Amis, great rooms, views, food, host and beach :)

It was our third time that we have been at mes amis and our stays get more longer. We came from a safari in Balule and the journey by car from Hazyview to Johannesburg was very exhausting. So we were so glad to come to mes amis. It was as coming home. Gerhard und Anna and Patricia were so happy to see us again. Now we thought for us is the beginning of holiday and relaxing. The sounds of the ocean and the long walks at the beach. We were so happy to stay here again. We got our "old" room and all was so familiar. We have developed meanwhile little rituals. An absolute must is to go to Serentipity and The Girls for diner and saturday to the Sedgefield market. It was a great honour for us to be invited for diner to Gerhard and Anna. Gerhard showed my husband Michael how to prepare a steak medium rare. I think it was for Michael very exciting because there were other guests at this evening and for him it was a great test if all guest at this evening were satisfied. But all was o.k. and we had a fun evening. When we leave I was so sad. But we decided that our next stay will be just more longer.

Room Tip: From all rooms you have a wonderful view to the ocean.

Dear Evelyn and Michael,
Thanks for coming back to Mes Amis again. Michael's steaks were superb. Make sure he practise the technique before your next visit - we will want an encore for sure!

We spent 3 nights at Mes Amis Bed & Breakfast. Gerhard and Aneke are realy fine hosts. A verry friendly atmosphere is in this place.
The rooms are realy clean, spacious and well equipped.
Breakfasts varied and the view above the ocean is grandiose.
If its possible, we come again Elke und Yogi from Ismaning/Germany

Room Tip: Look for seaside rooms.

We spent 2 nights at Mes Amis B&B. The view high above the Ocean is fantastic. The rooms are spacious, well furnished and the service included the breakfast is great. Gerhard and Aneke are great hosts. We really appreciated the possibility to make use of the frozen meals prepared by the "6 ladies" when we decided not to leave the room for our lunch. We would rellay like to return to this beautiful place.

We thoroughly recommend the Mes Amis B+B at Wilderness. You get an extremely warm welcome and lovely, clean and airy room with magnificent view out over the Indian Ocean. The breakfasts are upmarket from the usual, albeit high standard, one expects. The paper styled menu is a great touch. The clean sweeping beach with lovely surf is superb for a morning walk or jog and access is easy from the house.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a sea view and also order Scotsman cereal for breakfast.

This is the most wonderful place to stay. The rooms sit on the cliff top overlooking a magnificent beach. You can lie in bed and look out at the ocean. You will be hard pressed to find a better location. Breakfasts are truly memorable and mine hosts Gerhard and Aneke make everyone feel so welcome its like visiting friends. Service is excellent and there is nothing you could possibly need during your stay that has not been thoughtfully provided. Cannot praise this place highly enough. Visit here and you will return again and again.

Room Tip: Room number 9 has the best view of the sunsets

We only stayed here for one night but wished it had been longer. A stunning location overlooking the beach and surf. The facilities were top rate and the breakfast was as described - gourmet. But best of all was the owners and staff; so friendly and nothing too much trouble. Will definitely be stopping here next time we are travelling on The Garden Route.

Room Tip: All rooms are sea facing with great views!
