Everything, room, view, breakfast and hospitality by Anna
Warm, friendly and helpful staff. Stunning and spacious suite with all required amenities. Beautiful view, centrally located, easy to find and a fantastic breakfast! Thanks for a very memorable and special stay! We would go back in a heartbeat.
Beautiful room with ocean and forest views. Very clean.Lovely helpful hostess Anna who welcomed us with a smile and a delicious breakfast every morning
We had a wonderful room at the Whales Way, a stunning view onto the ocean from our room and the breakfast was very delicious - the best we had during our 3 weeks trip in South Africa. If you can afford it book one of the suites, the view and the comfort is definitely worth the money. Anna made us feel very welcome and had some very good recommendations as well.
A perfect guesthouse to stay in Wilderness! Its right next to the ocean, you can walk down to a Little Beach and watch the impressing waves. A Swimming Beach and very good Restaurants (Dome offer cheap pick-up and drop-offs) are just a Short drive away. The host Anna is very friendly and caring! She was the best Host we met in our 4 week Holiday in SA! Thanks Anna for making our stay a very special time! We'll Come back for sure!
Our host Anna is an excellent host and provides a great breakfast.
Anna, our hostess made sure we had everything we needed and booked us restaurant reservations based on her excellent suggestions. Our stay was very special. The view to the ocean was breathtaking. The staff was also lovely!
We had one of the suites. Had a breathtaking view of the ocean! Best room we had in South Africa!
Everything - divine!
Should have stayed longer
Anna was a splendid hostess and looked after our best interests.
Oceanview, quiet, very lovely breakfast and fantastic rooms.
Internet access did not work well
Fabulous room. Good breakfast
Room door did not lock properly from the outside. There was a power failure but we received no help (candles, torches, etc)
This was the most beautifully decorated room we had along the Garden Route. However, the power went out when we returned from dinner out, and we could have used a good sized flashlight and candles. Otherwise, it was just LOVELY.
The Design of the Room. the staff. easy check-in and check-out
the smell of the bath robes. the traffic near the guest house because of road maintenance nowadays.
The stay as a whole
The location and view are amazing
the hospitality could be improved
