Haus am Strand - On the Beach
Ranked #8 of 59 Wilderness B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 December 2012

We were even tempted to extend our holiday! The name is very apt - the lawn literally flows onto the magnificent Wilderness beach and you fall asleep to the sound of the waves washing up onto the sand. The rooms are beautifully and tastefully decorated and leave you feeling refreshed and inspired. Rita and Joe treated us like their own family and made us feel so welcome. We sadly didn't get to meet Mike. We highly recommend Haus am Strand to other travellers and we will definitely return.

Our planning was to stay 1 night in this guesthouse, but we even came back for another 2 nights. The rooms are very nice, all recently refurbished and very clean. But the best thing is that 'Haus am Strand' is really as close to the beach as the name suggests. From your bed you look straight out over the sea and there is a very nice garden, where you have the same magnificent views. Nice restaurants within walking distance as well. The owner gave us very helpful advices. Highly recommend staying here!

This is a fantastic place to stay! My husband and I traveled last December (2011) with our 2 teenage girls. The girls had the Garden suite and we had the mini suite. There was a full kitchen in the girls room that was fully equipped. Clean and comfortable all around. There was also internet access at no additional charge, something that is not the case in most of the places we stayed on our SA visit. Fabulous help and service from the managers.Parking is tight but that's not surprising considering the fantastic location for this property right on the beach. We walked just down the road to the Beejuice cafe- you've got to go there if you stay here. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone!

Thank you Rita for your hospitality, and making us feel so incredibly welcome. Haus Am Strand is right on the beach, very professional and friendly atmosphere. It was very clean and beautifully furnished. I was surprised that it was so well priced for the location. It can easily compete with all the best holiday places on the planet, in terms of setting and view. Its right in the middle of the Garden Route, and a 5 minute walk to town. It was safe, beautiful, makes you want to stay forever. If you were wondering if you should go there, well, we were absolutely blown away. Being a world traveler, I can say this with all of my heart. Once again thank you Rita and Haus Am Strand. Breathtaking and soul reviving.
