“Once a pitstop now a destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

This is the most wonderful place to stay. The rooms sit on the cliff top overlooking a magnificent beach. You can lie in bed and look out at the ocean. You will be hard pressed to find a better location. Breakfasts are truly memorable and mine hosts Gerhard and Aneke make everyone feel so welcome its like visiting friends. Service is excellent and there is nothing you could possibly need during your stay that has not been thoughtfully provided. Cannot praise this place highly enough. Visit here and you will return again and again.

Room Tip: Room number 9 has the best view of the sunsets

We only stayed here for one night but wished it had been longer. A stunning location overlooking the beach and surf. The facilities were top rate and the breakfast was as described - gourmet. But best of all was the owners and staff; so friendly and nothing too much trouble. Will definitely be stopping here next time we are travelling on The Garden Route.

Room Tip: All rooms are sea facing with great views!

We stayed at Mes Amis for two nights and it was as the years before: great views, nicely appointed rooms, well stocked mini-bar and the best and most healthy breakfast we know of in the Western Cape.
We like the daily 'morning-mini-papar' made by the 'inn-keeper', which has the breakfast menu on it, as well as the weather forecast and some anecdotes which are interesting and funny to read while you are waiting for your home cooked bread or cooked breakfast. We love the porridge prepared in various original ways.
If possible: we will come back again!
For evening dinner we would like to recommend 'Serendipity' restaurant in Wilderness.

Room Tip: some rooms are bigger with small private sitting room.

Wow! The welcome! The room! The view, the breakfast! The local restaurant review! We WILL be back! Up at 5-30 am every morning. A swim in the ocean, pleasantly comfortable compared to Cape Town. Then a wonderful breakfast with a menu including great quotes, this day in history, the weather including tides, sunrise and sunset. Nothin was too much trouble for the hosts.

My wife and i were driving around and we found this place at the end of this road on the beach.
the location is great but as the house is on the top of a big dune with an amazing ocean view.....
from the moment you arrive to the moment to leave, you feel that you have been treated like a special guest....super friendly hosts, the rooms have everything you need, super clean and what a view ! oh, and the cheapest minibar with everything you need
if this was all, that would be just a very good guest house but wait till you wake up and go for your breakfast...this is just out of this world
from the good morning card with the weather forecast and few quotes to the menu...this was probably the best breakfast we had in all our trip .
My wife and i were super impressed by the place, the warmth of the host and we highly recommend this guest house if you decide to stop in Wilderness

If you are looking for place to be and and have a great holiday, then Mes Amis is that place. The moment you arrive, you are greeted as if you are not a stranger and by name! The rooms are spacious, clean and neat. The room has the best ocean view. You need not worry about the bed, because its very comfortable. Its better than the bed in the five star hotel i have stayed in. The bathroom has one of the best showers i have ever seen and its neat!
The staff are very friendly.
I got the relaxation i was looking for and i am certainly heading back to Mes Amis next year for more days!

Room Tip: All the rooms are are good, but room 7 is the best.

A fantastic position on the Garden Route, close enough for day trips to Mossel Bay, Oudtshoorn, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay, George and many little bays along the coast plus the Wilderness Nationlal Park. Or you can just enjoy the guest house and the wonderful views and it's position on the cliff top overlooking the beautiful white beach and the magnificent thundering Indian Ocean. The rooms are light and breezy with a real sea-side feel and the beds are very comfortable. The views from every room are amazing and I saw dolphins twice and whales...how lucky am I? The beach just asks to be walked
Then the owners........well, they are the nicest hosts you could wish to meet.......nothing is too much trouble, they really do like being in hospitality and their staff are friendly and happy.
The breakfasts are imaginative and Gerhard jollies up the menu each day with little ditties and anecdotes, plus the weather forecast. I really hope to go back, it was a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: All rooms are very similar and of a good size, they all face the ocean and have their own terrace ov...
