My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Ibitshi Guest Lodge at the end of April 2014. Our stay was fantastic and we really enjoyed our stay in the Wilderness area and also our accomodation.
Our host, Michael, was very welcoming and immediatley took time to get to know us and helped us book a restaurant for our first night in advance of us arriving. He showed us around the property and our room. The building itself has guest rooms on the first floor. Our room had a nice lounge area with a TV, fridge and a couple of bathrooms. The bedroom had a fantastic view out to sea and all the rooms are bright and spacious. If you are going to stay please be aware that you will hear the sea, not a problem for us at all but is something to be aware of if you are a very light sleeper.
The downstairs area of the building has an indoor pool (not the right time of year for us to use it), a TV/sound system lounge area which we did use one evening to watch a DVD. There is a pool table and also a large kitchen.
The beach is near by and we had a nice walk along the beach with the two dogs and also saw the sunset. There isn't too much else in the area though. We had a hire car so were able to travel about but I doubt anyone visiting would come without transport. The use of the taxi to get into the main part of Wilderness with the restaurants was useful if you want to have a drink with your meal instead of driving there yourself.
Michael is also a superb cook. Our breakfast (as previous reviews have testified to) is a wonder to behold. If only our stomachs were large enough we would have enjoyed so many of the things on offer! As it was though we over the two days enjoyed fresh fruit, fruit smoothies, a hot vegetarian dish, fresh baked rolls and muffins and also a pancake. The food is all fresh and delicious!
I'd definitley recommend Ibitshi as a place to stay.
