After a warm welcome, we were shown our room with magnificent view! Breakfast is served with love. We were given very good advise for diner plans. Great location to stay while traveling. We went to Knysna for a day-out. Just got to love those lovely people, they took such a good care for us!! Feels like home

You do need a car to drive to Interlaken, but this was the perfect place for us to stay. Our hosts could not have been more friendly or welcoming. Their little granddaughter was a delight too! Kevin was a great cook and most informative about the area. We loved the canoe trip and the restaurant in the village. Our spacious... More

Me and my friend stayed in Wilderness for only one night, but we would have loved to stay longer! This guest house is high standard and has beautiful views both in the day and in the night (stargazing!).

We stayed for just one night in the honey moon room that has an amazing view on the lake and a small patio. The sun will wake you up but when you see the sun rise and it's amazing colours you'll be glad to be awake. Breakfast is served in the patio in front of the lake view by the... More

Welcoming owners and wonderful views over the lake. Excellent breakfast. Our refurbished & spacious room was scrupulously clean & our only gripe was that the wireless connection faded out unless we were on the balcony.

The location is lovely, and our room had a wonderful view over the Wilderness park. The room we had is large and well appointed. Elsie and Kevin are very friendly, great hosts, and the breakfast provided on the terrace was outstanding. A very enjoyable stay, and we fully recommend it to anyone.
