“Brilliant, awesome, opulent, relaxed and friendly.”
Reviewed 24 June 2011

Upon entering Wilderness and wending one’s way up the steep hill to the guest house one anticipates that something special awaits. Peter met us at the door and requested that we all remove our shoes, a house policy! Slippers are available as required! Unshod we were ushered inside and WOW! An ultramodern, stylish and opulent interior immediately grabs one’s attention. Attention to detail and careful planning are everywhereto see. The sea facing walls of the house are all glass and the view that greets visitors is nothing short of wondrous.......a panoramic landscape of the village, the Touw River, the beach and the ocean.

Glass staircases dictate the no shoe policy! Peter gave us a quick tour of the three guest bedrooms. The Red, Green and White bedrooms are all luxuriously and stylishly decorated – much thought has gone into guest’s needs and comfort. Besides extra length king size beds, deep pile carpets, top of the range linen and stunning bathrooms, the guest rooms contain the usual TV, ipod dock, tea/coffee making facilities, etc. Additionally Peter has added dressing gowns, heated towel rails, pens and notelet paper, torch, bathroom heater, vanity mirror, and so on.

A large deck with a pool enables guests to relax whilst enjoying the breathtaking view. The communal lounge and dining areas offer the same views too! Peter is a trained chef and, besides delicious breakfasts, offers lunch and supper by arrangement. We were treated to some fabulous fare, including peppadews stuffed with ground biltong and chilli, pear and watercress soup and chicken stuffed with figs and blue cheese and wrapped in bacon.

Phoenix Guest House is in the upmarket price range, but is well worth staying at for those able to afford it. A truly special place in an amazing setting. Peter is an excellent host.
