Rooiels is so unique and wildly beautiful and the Wonderlings B&B fully appreciates its beautiful natural setting. There are two rooms available. We stayed in Restis which was a suite of bed sitting room with a small kitchen and bathroom cleverly fitted in round the back. It was spacious, attractively furnished and immaculately clean. The kitchen and bathroom were very...

Thank you for taking the trouble to respond, 653joanner. We love having guests who appreciate the stunning beauty that surrounds us and it is also nice for Koos and me to get the odd compliment now and then! We'd love to see you both again. Jenny

I found Wonderlings B&B by accident when browsing the hotels.com map of the area. We were on a road trip from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, and I had read about the beautiful coastal drive from Gordon's Bay to Rooi Els. We found the property right away and were not disappointed. The setting, the view and the house were outstanding....

Easy to find as it's just off the main road and the building is distinctive. We had a large double room with a small kitchenette and huge terrace with great views of the sea. The breakfast was a slightly quirky set up with some of it arriving in a basket and us having to boil the kettle/use the toaster from...

Thanks for taking the time to review Wonderlings! One of the great frustrations of living in rural South Africa is the WiFi - for us and for our guests, especially if they come from First World countries with cheap, fast internet. We are told that our Government is busy addressing this - and hold thumbs that the internet will improve...

A warm and welcoming place to stay. Despite his wife being in hospital at the time, nothing was too much trouble for Koos, our host. We enjoyed our stay very much. Only small negative point was, we felt the bed was a bit small for couples and we are not large people!

I am glad that Koos took such good care of you while I was in hospital and that you weren't inconvenienced by the sudden disruption in our lives. Our Restio suite has a standard double bed, but next time you come to stay book the Protea suite which has a kingsize, extra-length bed.

My girlfriend and I had a perfect one night stay at Wonderlings. The building is the owners own house (carefully designed by an architect: you'll love the details!) with an independent floor for guests: you really get your privacy. Jenny and Koos genuinely care about your confort and make you feel good and relaxed like you want to in South...

Top ratings for the host's friendliness and the spot in general close to one of the most beautiful beaches in SA, also for an excellent breakfast on the balcony with view to the False Bay and the birds enjoying the surrounding finbos. The only real downside of this thoughtfully and tastefully furnished appartment is the R44 that runs behind and...

We had a fabulous stay. Fantastic views and a very nice room. The drive along the coast is one of the best anywhere. The nice thing is, when you get there, you can get the drive experience again on the way back. And the penguins at Betty's Bay is something to experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wonderlings B&B is located in the quiet village of Rooi Els on the eastern edge of False Bay. We are positioned on the Cape Whale Route and in the heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom. You will stay in a luxury suite, sandwiched between the sea and the mountains. The village is a registered Conservancy in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve and so, apart from 1300 plant species, guests share their lives with the rich fauna that moves through the fence-free area. These include baboon, antelope, otters, hyrax, leopards, porcupines, genets, hares and more than 160 bird species. Activities include swimming, diving, birding, cycling, climbing and hiking, with numerous marked trails in the area. Wonderful drives, wine routes and golf courses are in the close vicinity. ... more   less
