“Most spectacular view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

You won't regret your stay here. Apart from the picturesque views, rooms are very luxurious and comfortable. A perfect location to explore the garden route. In walking distance to most restaurants and facilities...

This guest house most certainly is "A beautiful place". Having the most fantastic views of both the ocean and the mountains gives it a good start, but when you get inside you can't help but be in awe of the opulence and gorgeous interior decorations. Albert the extremely friendly host welcomes you like an old friend. We were upgraded at no extra cost to the Neptune suite, the room/ bathroom was amazing, pure luxury. If you are travelling the garden route staying here for a few days is a must. Most highly recommended.

Room Tip: In winter all rates are half price, plus price is per suite not per person.

We stayed at Wilderness for 3 nights as part of our anniversary tour of the Cape, along the Garden Route. Xanadu has a fantastic beach front location with our room overlooking the ocean. It was great to be able to walk through the garden straight onto the beautiful sandy beach and 'plodge' in the warm but wild Indian Ocean. Xanadu is a stunning guest house, in a stunning location run by friendly and helpful hosts Albert and Tersia and their loverly staff. As it was a special occassion Tersia recommend we tried Serendipity restaurant, which they reserved for us unknowingly making the restaurant aware it was our Silver Wedding. On arrival we were presented with our menu and were surprised to find an anniversary card inside... loverly touch! We must say it was a great recommendation, the food was fabulous. We thouroughly enjoyed our magical stay at Xanadu and Wilderness.

Room Tip: Chose a room with a sea view if you can - it's well worth waking up to the sound and sight of th...

My third stay at Xanadu was the best yet. There is no better location for a beach holiday. The rooms are spacious and luxurious, the staff polite and unobtrusive - great for a private getaway. Walk straight onto the beach...

Spent two nights in this place with very friendly owner. Wife was away for family visit but owner alone helped us with tips about the vicinity. We had a good discount of the original price because it was low season. We were in the presidential suite one nitgh and the Oyster room the second nigth and had the greatist view through the big windows towards the Ocean with even Whales on the Horizon. The place is very luxury and we were a bit afraid that we would make something dirty. The fact that you can wlak down from the villa to the beach was very easy end coming back there was a shower outside. Its not a cheap place but one has to go here sometime to get the real rich feeling of vacation.

Room Tip: The Oyster room and Presidential suite are really great.
