Stayed at Shining Waters for two nights... Stayed in Room 5, which offered a nice twin bed (put together as a double), a very nice bathroom and a window facing the ocean (spotted dolphins from the window on the first morning). Hosts were kind and helpful. Everything was clean. The place had a nice pool and an excellent view to... More

Renato and Corinne thank you for a total relaxed vacation. Breakfast was definitely first class with Corinne preparing fresh breakfast to your taste. The view was breathtaking and comfortable and neat rooms was an extra plus points. Rooms service every day made the vacation even more relaxed. Until next time.

This is one of the cheaper accommodations in Wilderness but nevertheless you get everything you wish for. Great luxury rooms with balcony overlooking the Indian ocean. Nice garden with pool. Very good value for money. Definately recommend it to couples (no children allowed).

Stayed here at the end of April. Delightful owners with a great service oriented attitude. The room, cleanliness and location of the b and b are all first class. One small complaint- the water pressure is very low. :(. Certainly worth a stay.

We stayed just one night at Shining Waters and the hosts are just delightful. You may be put off by the husband who seem rather stern at first meeting but you quickly realize he is a warm and welcoming host. I say adjust your expectations because I was thinking this was more of a guest house that a B &... More

After spending two months in South Africa, we were very delighted to make a stay at Shining Waters. The room was bright, clean, large and very comfortable with a great ocean view from the balcony. Corrine and Renato were lovely hosts and offered us great recommendations for touring and restaurants. We regret not having stayed here for a longer period... More

We spend 3 days here which were wonderful. Corinne & Renato are fabulous hosts. From our welcome, to the great breakfasts, the conversations around the table, the location of the house and the views - everything was all you could wish for and more. If you need a beautiful base when you are in Wilderness this is it.

We had a spacious room with balcony onto the seaside, giving a splendid view on dolphins passing in the morning! Excellent breakfast prepared by our hosts Corinne and Renato. You feel at home away from home! They also provided excellent restaurant info, we were sorry that we had no time to stay longer...
