We recently (November 2019) spent two wonderful nights at Shining Waters, a lovely bed and breakfast location in Wilderness along the Cape's Garden Route. Our room was lovely and bright, and the views from all windows were breathtaking. A very comfortable bed, and the room was also equipped with the makings for coffee and tea. A full breakfast was included, with hot items made to order as well as fresh local fruits and made-that-morning madeleines.We had our breakfast on a lovely patio overlooking an inviting pool. Jon is a wonderful host, and he and his staff were so friendly and helpful. We look forward to coming back again!

Perfect location in Wilderness. Direct at the sea. For paragliders it is possible to launch and land direct in front of the house. The owner and staff is great. With a fantastic breakfast you will start a perfect day in Wilderness. Thanks John, Lisa, Jane and Team for the unforgetable time at Shining Waters. I´ll be back ;-)

My husband and I spent a few nights at Shining Waters Guest house during December and we had the most amazing time. From the clean, beautiful rooms with amazing sea views to excellent coffee and a freshly prepared breakfast every morning. Perfect location, we even saw whales and dolphins from out balcony. Jon is an excellent host and he has a real passion for his Guesthouse and his guests, the staff are also really friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this guesthouse.

The last few days I stayed at Shining Waters. The location is beautiful! You have a magnificent view of the sea and the beach is within a few minutes walking distance. The beach is quiet and there is no waste. The room I had was nice and very clean. Every morning I could enjoy a delicious, fresh breakfast. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this guest house if you want to stay in Wilderness!
