A breath-taking experience right on the most magnificent beach in South Africa! Albert and Tersia were brilliant hosts in a unforgettable setting. A must to experience. Xanadu - the only place to go - the best - by far!

We spent 5 nights at Xanadu and had a wonderful and relaxing time. The house is beautiful, located right on a very nice beach, perfect for long walks and fun in the sand. We stayed at the oister suite, a big and beautifully decorated room with a breathtaking view over the ocean and a super comfortable bed. Breakfast is plenty and delicious, we loved the fresh fruit every morning and there was a great choice of everything else as well. Albert and Tersia, the owners as well as their staff are lovely and took very good care of us, we felt welcome and pampered the whole time. Wilderness is a nice little spot on the garden route with a good choice of restaurants and is a great location to go an explore the garden route in day tours or to just take some days to relax and enjoy. Highly recommended!

Everything about this guest villa is 'luxury'. Our suite was great; the views unforgettable; the attention to details remarkable. The Villa's decors reflect taste, colours, beautiful fabrics and the hostess 's fabulous paintings. Have to mention the hot breakfast, what a feast. Quite a few steps to get to the penthouse though!

Really has the wow factor !! From entering to exiting. The decor is so tastefully done, every little detail has been accomplished. The breakfast and service and how it was presented as to be commmented on. Will definately spend another visit at this super guest villa. Also must mention that the hosts were so accomodating and welcoming. One not to miss on your visit to South Africa !!!l

This is the 3rd time we visited Xanadu Guest Villa. My wife and I come here for quality time, to relax and unwind.

The owners Albert and Tersia each time remembers us and this time upon our arrival immediately asked "how's the baby doing?" who we left at the grandparents - we are definitely not just a number like you would feel staying at a hotel.

The guest house décor is superb. We love the ambiance they create in the guest house by the décor and the soft background music that plays via an iPod.I have spent time reading other reviews and I am confused by the odd review where the guest complains about the decor... this is 5-star decor, what more to say? These people must have very strange taste, and even if it's not your taste, you can still appreciate it for what it is and not complain just because its not in line with your taste? My wife also mentioned that she wants music like that to be playing in our own house....

The views are spectacular. Ten steps down onto your "private" beach with complimentary beach towels, chair, umbrella and other beach toys.

Lovely breakfast - more than enough variety. You can choose to sit at the round table for 8 people and get to know other guests and exchange ideas for day trips in and around the area, or you can sit at the other two smaller tables if you are perhaps not in the mood to mingle. If you sit at the 8-seater and Albert/Tersia comes past, they will introduce you to the other guests if you haven't gotten to know then already, which is nice.

The rooms are exactly like to photos on the website - perfect.

Overall we remained extremely satisfied with our stay once again, and we will keep returning!

Room Tip: If it's available, opt for one of the sea facing rooms - spectacular views of the ocean!

A very comfortable och luxury guesthouse at the Wilderness Beach. Nice rooms and a lovely garden to relax in. The beach is just a few meters away. Try to book the suite on the top floor with a terrace with 180 view. But note that the location just at the beach will make you hear the ocean the whole time, day and night!
