“Fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We thoroughly recommend the Mes Amis B+B at Wilderness. You get an extremely warm welcome and lovely, clean and airy room with magnificent view out over the Indian Ocean. The breakfasts are upmarket from the usual, albeit high standard, one expects. The paper styled menu is a great touch. The clean sweeping beach with lovely surf is superb for a morning walk or jog and access is easy from the house.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a sea view and also order Scotsman cereal for breakfast.

This is the most wonderful place to stay. The rooms sit on the cliff top overlooking a magnificent beach. You can lie in bed and look out at the ocean. You will be hard pressed to find a better location. Breakfasts are truly memorable and mine hosts Gerhard and Aneke make everyone feel so welcome its like visiting friends. Service is excellent and there is nothing you could possibly need during your stay that has not been thoughtfully provided. Cannot praise this place highly enough. Visit here and you will return again and again.

Room Tip: Room number 9 has the best view of the sunsets

We only stayed here for one night but wished it had been longer. A stunning location overlooking the beach and surf. The facilities were top rate and the breakfast was as described - gourmet. But best of all was the owners and staff; so friendly and nothing too much trouble. Will definitely be stopping here next time we are travelling on The Garden Route.

Room Tip: All rooms are sea facing with great views!

We stayed at Mes Amis for two nights and it was as the years before: great views, nicely appointed rooms, well stocked mini-bar and the best and most healthy breakfast we know of in the Western Cape.
We like the daily 'morning-mini-papar' made by the 'inn-keeper', which has the breakfast menu on it, as well as the weather forecast and some anecdotes which are interesting and funny to read while you are waiting for your home cooked bread or cooked breakfast. We love the porridge prepared in various original ways.
If possible: we will come back again!
For evening dinner we would like to recommend 'Serendipity' restaurant in Wilderness.

Room Tip: some rooms are bigger with small private sitting room.

Wow! The welcome! The room! The view, the breakfast! The local restaurant review! We WILL be back! Up at 5-30 am every morning. A swim in the ocean, pleasantly comfortable compared to Cape Town. Then a wonderful breakfast with a menu including great quotes, this day in history, the weather including tides, sunrise and sunset. Nothin was too much trouble for the hosts.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple

My wife and i were driving around and we found this place at the end of this road on the beach.
the location is great but as the house is on the top of a big dune with an amazing ocean view.....
from the moment you arrive to the moment to leave, you feel that you have been treated like a special guest....super friendly hosts, the rooms have everything you need, super clean and what a view ! oh, and the cheapest minibar with everything you need
if this was all, that would be just a very good guest house but wait till you wake up and go for your breakfast...this is just out of this world
from the good morning card with the weather forecast and few quotes to the menu...this was probably the best breakfast we had in all our trip .
My wife and i were super impressed by the place, the warmth of the host and we highly recommend this guest house if you decide to stop in Wilderness

If you are looking for place to be and and have a great holiday, then Mes Amis is that place. The moment you arrive, you are greeted as if you are not a stranger and by name! The rooms are spacious, clean and neat. The room has the best ocean view. You need not worry about the bed, because its very comfortable. Its better than the bed in the five star hotel i have stayed in. The bathroom has one of the best showers i have ever seen and its neat!
The staff are very friendly.
I got the relaxation i was looking for and i am certainly heading back to Mes Amis next year for more days!

Room Tip: All the rooms are are good, but room 7 is the best.
