I will be visiting Haus am Strand in the near future. It is perfectly located, endless view of the Wilderness coastline and 5 minutes walk from shop and diners.
Thanks to Frau Rita Fledmann and Herr Joe

I stayed at Haus am Strand for a week during my university break, and it was lovely.
The owner, Rita, was incredibly friendly and accommodating, her enthusiasm for the guest house made my stay all the better. The two managers were also very helpful. We stayed in the traveller suite which was quaintly furnished and very tidy and well-kept. It has a beautiful view of the ocean (even from the bed), and the beach is a couple of steps away. It is apparent that the owner invests a lot of time and effort in renovating, decorating and upkeep of the apartments. I very highly recommend this guest house to anyone visiting Wilderness!

Room Tip: Although we stayed in the traveler suite, the honeymoon suite did look amazing

Our stay at Haus am Strand was an unforgettable experience. The central location of this guest house makes it ideal for exploring Wilderness. The beautifully decorated honeymoon suite was equipped with everything we needed to make our time in Wilderness most comfortable and pleasant. Even on a rainy day there was more than enough to do. The view from our balcony was magnificent and it was such a joy falling asleep to the lull of the ocean every night.

There were three couples - my wife's parents who are seasoned travelers, my wife's sister and husband and us. We were accommodated in Garden, Traveller and Mini suites - all spotlessly clean and comfortable. We were met and made welcome immediately, nothing was too much trouble (we needed braai/b'bque tongs and these were provided by Mike), we looked forward each morning as we were drinking our coffee, to our visit by Mike and discussing the options to explore, restaurant recommendations, and discussion about the probable weather. Walks along the beach were delightful. Close to George, Knysna, Plett, Tsitsikamma and the Cango Caves. The Saturday morning market in Sedgefield is well worth visiting - very different and the offering is varied, not your typical market. All told, quite a special hideaway.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderfull week stay in this fabulous B & B, we stayed here in 2013 and enjoyed the super experience, the staff are most attentive and the rooms are beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean with great views over the beach and Indian Ocean.
The location of this B & B is perfect with the beach at the foot of the lawned area and the town 200 metres in the opposite direction, my wife and I are sorting out dates to return in 2015, thank you Rita for making our stay with you so enjoyable.

We loved our suite at the Haus am Strand, sunny, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean it had the most fantastic views. Rita, the owner is lovely, nothing is too much trouble and Joe her property manager is delightful. The location is superb, everything you need is available locally but it is a great base to expore the surrounding attraction. We will certainly be going back!

We were recommended this idyllic guest house and were not disappointed. We stepped straight out our patio doors onto a lovely garden and straight onto the beach. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. There are a couple of lovely restaurants very close by. We can highly recommend this place and will definitely be returning in the future.
