Haus am Strand - On the Beach
Ranked #8 of 59 Wilderness B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Travel Exclusively African organised our 5 week self drive tour of the Western Cape and our stay at Haus Am Strand in Wilderness for 3 nights was a perfect example of the quality of accommodation. Rita is justifiably very proud of the work she has carried out on this property which is clean, comfortable, well equipped and the biggest bonus of all - 20 steps to the beach. There is a huge beach at the bottom of the garden which is perfect for early morning walks. Literally just over the road is the village of Wilderness with an abundance of shops and restaurants. (Would highly recommend "The Girls Restaurant" for exceptional quality). Everything you need is literally on the doorstep with no need to use the car unless you want to go a little further afield for some of the amazing views in this area. Sitting on veranda listening to the waves was incredibly relaxing and would definitely rate this accommodation as one of the best that we stayed in during our 5 week trip. There is no doubt that we will return and next time hopefully stay longer. All the best to Rita and Joe and a huge thank you.

Right on the beach! My boyfriend and I were so taken with the location we didn’t want to eat out so we had dinner on the balcony. The rooms were beautiful, proximity to all the shops was amazing so close to all the restaurants in town, wilderness is such a lovely place, you can wonder along the beaches into the town to cute coffee shops and have a luxurious dinner in the evening. Make sure you visit the national park for the waterfall walk, it’s a must, but be warned there is an admission to the national park!

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing.

On my recent stay at Haus am Strand I was surprised to see that it really is located on the beach! From our room it was 20 steps - and yes we counted, and we were on the sand.

The rooms are tastefully decorated with a few cosy touches. Besides the beds that were comfortable, clean and offered a view of the ocean; the room we stayed in was equipped with its own little kitchen area, a small dining table, a TV and 2 chairs in which to watch the TV from. The bathroom was impeccably clean and had a combined shower and bath with handrails for those of us who tend to be a bit more unsteady when getting in and out of the bath. There are comfortable seating areas outside the rooms and are great for those days where you just want to sit and enjoy the scenery.

Rita and Joe are the friendliest people and really have the insider knowledge on where the best places are to eat, shop or just experience Wilderness. Located close to nice restaurants (just a small walk) and so close to the beach Haus Am Strand will definitely see me again :)

We were even tempted to extend our holiday! The name is very apt - the lawn literally flows onto the magnificent Wilderness beach and you fall asleep to the sound of the waves washing up onto the sand. The rooms are beautifully and tastefully decorated and leave you feeling refreshed and inspired. Rita and Joe treated us like their own family and made us feel so welcome. We sadly didn't get to meet Mike. We highly recommend Haus am Strand to other travellers and we will definitely return.

Our planning was to stay 1 night in this guesthouse, but we even came back for another 2 nights. The rooms are very nice, all recently refurbished and very clean. But the best thing is that 'Haus am Strand' is really as close to the beach as the name suggests. From your bed you look straight out over the sea and there is a very nice garden, where you have the same magnificent views. Nice restaurants within walking distance as well. The owner gave us very helpful advices. Highly recommend staying here!
