“Forest Chalet: "Rustic, peacefulness, birds singing and being in the middle of nature."”
Reviewed 13 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a great week in the Forest Chalet! A rustic wooden chalet with an open kitchen on the veranda. When it was too cold, we could sit there cosy around the gas heater. Away from the civilized world with his busyness and now surrounded by trees and special birds.
Anton is a thoughtful host and we met him after he helped us with directions how to get to the forest chalet. Everything needed was there and really enjoyed the open kitchen, a special feeling. Anton came out specially to supply us of dry braai wood.
The only thing we needed to get used to was going outside to get to the bathroom, which was attached to the chalet.
If you like rustic, peacefulness, birds singing, being in the middle of nature and away from the busyness of normal life, then this is the place for you to go to!

“Serene soul cleansing experience in a tranquil forest cabin setting!”
Reviewed 14 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This Forest Cabin is perfect for the simple stress free quiet holiday seekers. Not only is it very well equipped and cleanliness 5 Star but the adventure of exploring the forest and hearing mother nature all around is pretty much perfect. Easy access to the lovely town called Wilderness and all it's little shops and restaurants. Lovely Blue Flag beach close by. Timeless Forests, Beautiful Beaches, Good Food Excellent Accommodation and Hosts. What more could one ask for!

“A great escape”
Reviewed 11 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The cabin is well equipped with all you will need and is perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a few days to retreat to the forest. Although it is outside of town, its not too far to drive back during the evening if you choose to go for a night out on the town, provided you have a bakkie, SUV or 4x4 (though you may be able manage just fine with an ordinary car too, if the weather is dry!). Anton was a great host and we really enjoyed our stay!

“Beautiful secluded hide away surrounded by nature”
Reviewed 1 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

If you are looking for a secluded and quiet spot, this is it. This rustic cabin caters for all your essential needs to make your stay comfortable. Combined with the natural surroundings ( wild monkeys and birds visiting) makes this in my opinion one of the best hidden treasures in Wilderness.
The drive is quit an adventure, but this all adds to the charm of the Forest chalet.
The property is surrounded by a small stream and access to a waterfall and pool is a 30 min hike away.
Lorraine was a wonderful host and valued our privacy. We loved it and will definitely be back!
