“Best honeymoon destination!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

We spent our honeymoon at Porcupine Pie and it is something we will never forget. The service was great, the owners were marvelous and the food was out of this world! I am yet to find a more peaceful and relaxing place. . .

Room Tip: All the rooms are spectacular.

We spent 6 nights at Porcupine Pie for the first week of our honeymoon. Well it was just fantastic! John is an amazing host, so helpful and an awesome cook! The food was amazing and we were so spoilt.
The rooms are great with brilliant views of the valley. Peaceful and quiet and very private.
It's just a shame we couldn't stay there longer but will definitely try and make it back there one day.

We have just returned from our SIXTH visit to Porcupine Pie. This time we took friends from
UK and met up with family too, so we virtually took the place over. It was rather like going home! We enjoy everything so much. The incredible hospitality of John and Judy, the
marvellous food, the outstanding views and comfort of the chalets. Hopefully we will return again - our sincere thanks as usual.

We had a great experience at Porcupine Pie. Beautiful location and John is a great host who was always on hand for recommendations and sorting out activities for us. The breakfasts were memorable and the views of the National Park were unparalleled. Highly Recommended

We can highly recommend this fantastic guest-house!!!! The photos dont do the whole experience enough justice! Perfect hospitality and wonderful location....a must for people who want to relax and enjoy a breathtaking view!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous! There are only 3 lodges, which adds to the privacy!

My fiance and I travel extensively, and ashamedly so, have promised reviews to other places we stayed at without ever taking the time to actually do so! Life takes over...BUT, for this one, I am going to make an exception...and actually keep my promise.
John and Judy, you are two of the most amazing hosts we have every had. My fiance and I joked about how you (the hosts) and "the place" compete with each other for first prize...well, sorry to have to disappoint you, but you both will have to share that gold medal.
We had such a special weekend with you during September this year and we just wanted to thank you for making us feel so welcome and treating us like royalty. Judy we are still talking about your mouthwatering strawberry cheesecake and John, OMW that steak and those chicken kebabs...mmmmm.....Please people, don't waste your time and money on eating at any other place in Wilderness.
John and Judy we want to congratulate you on the beautiful retreat you have created, a little piece of heaven. A place we will be sure to return to.

Room Tip: There is ONLY 3 chalets, so any one is a great one

We had the pleasure of enjoying 4 nights at this lovely place. Wonderful hosts who serve a great breakfast and John cooks the most delightful evening meals (be sure to enquire and confirm his cooking nights! - better than any local restaurant). The lodges (3) were well fitted and most comfortable, all with wonderful views over the valley, mountains and natural forest. Great walks down to the waterfall and along the Touw river. If you want a few days away from the rat race and really want to be spoiled with excellent cuisine and pure relaxation - visit Porcupine Pie. We will be back.

Room Tip: all three rooms are completely independent units and all have wonderful views over the valley.
