Good location; very quiet; huge room/ apartment; nice breakfast
No beach view from room
Outside deck area and views. Good breakfast and comfy bed. Flavia restaurant in Wilderness was very good.
Town evening restaurants were 2.8 km and must use car as busy dual carriageway. Maybe follow up the evening Take Away mentioned by the host, as beach ones are not really accessible.
If you like walking on very long sandy beaches situated right by your room. If you like views of the immense and wild Indian ocean including whales and dolphins. If you like really friendly homely staff. If you like excellent and reasonable restaurants nearby. You will be like us and want to go back again one day. Thankyou André and Mathilda..
Leaving. Nothing else to say.
From the moment I walked in I felt at home. The welcoming was so down to earth you relaxed right away. Making my stay so relaxed I enjoyed all there was on offer. Breakfast was amazing and the walks along the beach were carefree and one felt safe. Could have stayed longer loved every minute of my stay. Thank you
Everything! From our room with balcony the best seaview (whale-watching included) we ever had! Very friendly and helpful host. Nice breakfast. Large oversize doppelbed. Large bathtub. Good restaurants nearby (taxi is recommended). Best greetings to André and his wife!
Great apartment with large bedroom and large separate living room.Good views over the sea though some apartments had much better views than ours. Our apartment was at a lower level so outside it seemed damp and cold. Friendly and helpful owners who gave great advice about restaurants etc.
The location is great with an exceptional ocean view, very good base for day trips, nice owner couple, who gladly give advice and help. Just ask them! Beautiful beach, with a few precautions you even can bath there - ask Andre for advice.
There was nothing to complain.
Stunning view on ocean Nice that they used little flowers as decoration Nice breakfast
Amazing view over the ocean great buidling & designing large room very clean Good price the staff are very helpfule Everything is perfect Awesome owners (Andre) very helpfule (we want a DVD player to watch our skydive dvd and we asked him and he provide it to us even thought we didn't think we could find one )
Location, staff, room, view, breakfast,....... Perfect place!!!!!
Our stay was wonderful. I sent photos to my hubby to show him what he missed. The view from my room was spectacular. Andre gave good local advice about restaurants etc!
That we had to leave coz they were fully booked the following night! Would love to have stayed longer!!!!
Owners and staff are great. Amazing breakfast.
When the owners weren't there we got from their replacement wrong information about certain things.
View, huge room, fancy restroom!
Fabulous location and personal attendance of hosts made this an experience that we shall certainly repeat.
Amazing view over the ocean, with own balcony to watch the sunset. Boardwalk down to huge beach. Very comfortable room. Andre and Mathilde were very helpful and friendly hosts. It was also possible to access some of the national park walks without getting in the car. Wilderness has some lovely scenery, a friendly feel to it and lots to do. We wish we could have spent more time there.
Being ripped off by the only taxi in town - 'Wild Shuttle' driven by John. He charged us at least double the going South African rate for a very short journey into town. Andre was angry and embarrassed about this and very kindly made amends on our bill, which he didn't have to do. Thank you Andre.
Location, location, location.
All was good.
Because of the ocean view, we were fortunate enough to witness southern right whales playing for us.
nothing to say here
The location and view of the ocean was superb! Much higher spec than we expected. The host was fabulous and helpful.
Would have liked to have known we could sleep with the door slightly open to hear the sea
Wonderful, friendly & helpful staff. Stunning views and surroundings
We stayed unfortunately for only one night at the Dolphin Dunes Guesthouse. We got room 4 which has an amazing sea view. Breakfast was very fresh and healthy. I would highly recommend this as an accommodation option in Wilderness.
Friendly staff. Excellent clean facilities. Breakfast - wow!
- welcoming owners - friendly staff - incredible view - located right on the beach - large room - lovely bathroom - peace & quiet
- could only stay for 3 nights, wish it could have been longer!
Very nice rooms and balcony or terrace, short walk to lonesome and beautiful beach, price was excellent for our winter time travelling
Accommodation was very comfortable, very clean and the personal touches - fresh flowers - in the room, made this hotel special. The breakfast room is bright, the service cheerful and the food tasty.The owners are a very friendly couple who offer advice on the best places to eat and activities within the area. The location is superb, overlooking the Indian Ocean and the views along the beach from the house are breathtaking. We will definitely be visiting again, next time for a longer break
