“Stupendous views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

We stayed in Aloe suite as everything else booked up - but it still has stupendous views and is pleasant, airy and well decorated with a very large bathroom

Good value for money and I would recommend it - you don't find views like this easily nor the sound of the surf
Kitchen area a bit cramped but ok

Loerie cabin was spacious, well fitted. the balcony views is breathtaking, and the constant sound of the ocean from all the rooms makes it a peaceful place to be at, close to most amenities, and easy access to the mall only challenge is climbing up and down those roads with a small car need a bigger engine ;)

We stayed here in February 2014. Sadly the owner had just passed away, so not sure what is going to happen with this little gem. The lady who was covering temporarily was lovely and very helpful.

We stayed in the Loerie Cabin which is a wonderful bamboo / wood building overlooking the sea; the lodge was very unusual in a good way. We also had a peek into the honeymoon lodge which looked even nicer and very private.

To get to Wilderness Bushcamp, you have to drive up a long and steep driveway but the views are well worth it. A fairly large road goes right through the middle of Wilderness, but from the lodges you don't hear or see it at all.

Instead you get rewarded with beautiful sunset views and you hear birds and the ocean.There is a small kitchen unit and BBQ facilities.
It is basic accommodation, but clean and unusual. We loved it.

The Lapa lodge is smaller, more modern, clean and freshly decorated but less private than the Loerie lodge and the honeymoon lodge. It's less unusual than the other 2 we saw.

Wonderful stay, wonderful people, phenomenal view. What else in life do you need! Wow. Definitely worth a visit.The honeymoon suite is particularly fantastic. This must be one of the best places to stay in the Garden Route and most importantly affordable and great value for money!

Stayed here with my 12 yr old son. As it was winter the walks on the property were not in use, but that was only a minor concern. I booked unit 6 because of the reviews here - and I agree- the most spectacular views. Basic but clean and adequate accommodation, no complaints. Loved the birds all around. You need a car to come and go - no walking into town for most - steep long road.

We have stayed here many times before and it remains our most favourite spot on the Garden Route. Unit 6 has the most amazing views no matter the season or the weather, it is just spectacular and we will visit again and again. It is so wonderful to find down-to-earth accommodation at reasonable prices in Wilderness. Thanks Ann for sharing your special piece of paradise.

Room Tip: Unit 6 has the best views :)

Sometimes when we are travelling we just want to hunker down for an evening and make our own dinner. Unit#6 had a fine little kitchen and a fabulous view too. And a comfortable, mosquito -netted bed. A good working shower. Plus a delightful chorus line of birds that appeared on the railing at the crack of dawn to sing us awake. We wouldn't want to have to drive up that road more than once, but we loved the accomodation so much we would force ourselves to do that if the opportunity arose.
