Thanks to the Kevin & Elsie for their very friendly hospitality - they really made us feel at home! The accommodation is fantastic, the breakfasts are superb & the views are truly beautiful. We enjoyed a relaxing stay at the end of a 2 week road trip and it was our best accommodation. We hope to be back soon.

We had an excellent stay in the Interlaken guest house, and enjoyed the view over the lagoon very much, as well as Kevin's lovely breakfast. It's in a very nice area, yet one would need a car to get to e.g. the beach or Eden adventures, which we did not have, but luckily Kevin was very nice and gave us...

We are so pleased that you enjoyed our lovely views!! We are happy to tell you that Wilderness now has a shuttle service to get to restaurants so that you can have a drink and you dont need to drive, and a new taxi service. They are both are very reasonably priced and make a big difference for our guests!!...

This was our favourite guesthouse of our 2 week trip to South Africa. The room was very nice with an exceptionally large balcony which has just amazing views over a lagoon and with no street lights offers unparalleled views of the stars. Breakfast was lovely and served on decking overlooking the lagoon. Kevin and Elsie were fantastic hosts and we...

Kevin and Elsie make you feel very comfortable in their lovely home. Our room was very clean, modern and large. The wonderful view from the private balcony of the lake and surrounding mountains made this the perfect base for us to enjoy the WIlderness area.

Nothing to dislike here! Owner is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is tasty and served on a patio with an amazing view. Rooms are large and come with a large balcony overlooking the lake of Wilderness National Park--stunning! Comfortable, clean, great location, quiet and convenient. What else would you want?

Had a wonderful stay for 2 nights in February. The setting is lovely, rooms are spotless and spacious, and the breakfasts delicious. Plenty to see and do nearby, or simply relax on the deck and watch the sunset. Kevin and Elsie were terrific - strongly recommend.
