The house was not good isolated- it was too loud when the guests in the upper apartment walked around.
A wonderful view and a great breakfast. Very helpful and friendly Manager. The rooms are nice decorated and clean.

The jacuzzi was not clean, so we didn't use it at all. It was mentioned far too often that the offered "free wlan" isn't supposed to be used for downloads, you are only allowed to use it for emails. It is also written in the rooms. So it's really bothering to be confronted with this rule almost everywhere and anytime. Usually during holidays nobody uses Wlan for downloads... The TV was not working as well... For the price at least the TV should work properly...
From our room as well as from the breakfast room we had a nice view over the ocean. Breakfast was pretty good.

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!
