Going to Wilderness?
No need to look any further!

Amazing accomodation.
Fabulous hosts.
A breakfast to die for!

I could go on and on and.......but I won't.

we spent only 1 night at this nice place. The room has everything you need, the bed was perfect, so was the fantastic breakfast in the garden. The hosts were very nice and helpful and from our terasse we had a nice view overlooking the lagoon.

Another stunning South African Guest House.Situated set back from the main road makes no difference to the enjoyment because you cant hear any traffic.Large,airy rooms with views over the lagoon,with staff soo helpful.Super breakfast ,with owners who care about their product.And young Kate a delightful,helpful woman who never stops smiling.
Would recommend to anyone.Its the perfect location when in Ksysna.

We only stayed here for one night on a drive along the Garden Route - but loved Wilderness and Waterside Lodge so much we wanted to stay.

The accomodation is great - we had a lovely large room with an immaculate and spacious bathroom. There was a small pool and a beautiful garden to use too, though we didn't have much time for sunbathing.

Breakfast was delicious - beautifully presented fruit platter starter, freshly cooked eggs and bacon, cereals, yogurt, toast etc...

Kobus was very friendly and helpful in advising things to do and places to eat. We ate at The Girls restaurant on his recommendation and loved it - fabulous South African food.

Would definitely recommend and hope to return very soon,

We stopped off in Wilderness for a couple of nights on our journey from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. We found Waterside Lodge in the Portfolio guide and they happened to have a room available. We had the honeymoon suite which was beautiful. A lovely wooden cabin/cottage in the grounds of the guest house. Spacious, clean, comfy with its own terrace and right next to the small pool and sun deck. The host, Kobus, was exceptionally friendly and welcoming and very helpful with booking restaurants etc. Their lovely dog Maggie was also great! What a little gem!
