Had a wonderful time during January 2014 staying in the cottage. Friendly, welcoming and relaxing. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best. So many small items were on hand that other self catering accommodation s do not have. Thank you. Eben, Cherise and Katelynn.

Jenny and I spent 2 nights in the loft - not expecting very much from this beautiful holiday destination located on the outskirts of Wilderness in the South African "Garden Route"....
Oh boy, were we pleasantly surprised when we entered and found ourselves in a crispy clean, very roomy and very comfortably studio apartment!!! A perfect bed, quality linen and towels, small but well equipped kitchen, ditto for the bathroom.....
Standing inside the loft and looking around bears witness of the love and dedication Rob and his wife have put into this place. We were surprised by the fresh flowers in the room.

Below the loft is a 2 bedroomed cottage, with the same quality finishes as the loft. What is great is
that there's an internal staircase which can be opened should one wish to rent the whole place, changing it into a very roomy and comfortable 3 bedroomed house.
The only improvement I can suggest is to add a nice bbq with outside light, as it gets very dark.
Regards
Francois & Jenny Haasbroek

We hope you"ll return to try it out!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Easter weekend away in this quaint and charming self-catering cottage. Quiet and clean home tucked away in beautiful surroundings we cannot thank Rod and Hydie enough for their warm Wilderness hospitality! We really appreciated all the small touches, such as the Easter eggs and the muffins! all very tasty treats. We will definitely be back to visit again. Highly recommend to anyone for some much needed R&R from the city!

How lovely to know that you could experience the romance of the moon over the lake, as well as the stunning tranquility of the area.

Hopefully you will soon be able to plan another break in this very lovely part of our country

Delightful self contained accommodation. Beautiful location. We saw a wide variety of water birds from the nearby bird hide. The gardens are wonderful, and there is a verandah to relax on while watching the sunset. Altogether a very enjoyable experience.

We share your excitement & pleasure at the wealth of bird life - as seen from the well placed Bird Hide - just down the road, as well as right under our noses , in the garden.

We trust that you could take the peace and beauty with you, and that it will inspire you to plan a return visit to this area.

We used Beside Still Waters as a halfway house for our trip from Cape Town to PE. The location is well positioned within the natural beauty of Wilderness. The units are clean and well equipped with quality appliances. There were a few of special touches, such as the flowers, chocolates and muffins. Rod and his wife really made us feel at home and will definately make use of their services in future.

Only 45 mins from home in Knysna Mandy and I had a wonderful, peaceful three day stay. We had the upper room which was very pleasant, clean and homely. Thanks to Rod our host for a lovely warm welcome and a very pleasant stay. Of all the trips we have been on over the years, this was one of our favourites. Highly recommended. John and Mandy.

Our group of 6 stayed here in February 2014 on our exploration of the Garden Route. All agreed it was the best place we stayed in the fortnight. Excellent accommodation, welcome and breakfast in amazing surroundings.

Room Tip: Ask which venue faces which way for the sunrise/sunset.
