Stunning views at walking distance from the beach. Very spacious rooms in a very impressive garden. Truly inspiring! Our hosts took excellent care of us (thanks again for the peppermint oil). This guesthouse was excellent value for money, I'd whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone who's planning to stay in the Wilderness area.

Exquisite premises, amazing surroundings and the most warmhearted and helpful hosts you can ever imagine. We have just been spending seven days in the huge and cosy flat, enjoying the garden with its beautiful plants and birds, even Knysna Loeries could be spotted there. The flat was very clean and nicely furnished, everything was perfect. We will come back next...

We had a terrible stay at Limberlost. The thatched roof really smells bad and gave us all hay fever. We did not have a good night’s rest because we were trying to keep the spiders away. We stopped counting after killing 15 spiders around the bed. We moved the bed just to make sure we got them all and it...

This is a really charming guest house in absolutely beautiful surroundings. It is close to the beach and village. We stayed in one of the thatched cottages with double room, kitchenette and extra room with 2 separate beds so this would be ideal for a family. The house is apparently over 100 years old and has been renovated. The bathroom...

Beautiful setting, lovely location close to village and beach and could not ask for better hosts really going the extra mile to make the stay unforgettable! Will definitely be back!!The cleanliness was exceptional. The private pre-arranged anniversary request for my husband and I could not have been more special!

This was our second visit to Limberlost. Stunning old thatch Wilderness property. Very friendly hosts and lovely dogs. Will definately be back as we visit George often to see Mom in a home there and cannot imagine spending a single night in George.

Very charming Guesthouse in a wonderfull Location, just in Front the lagoon, surrounded by a large Garden. There is no better Place to stay in Wilderness or along the whole Gardenroute. You can make canoe-tours, swim in the lagoon, hike in the national park or relax on the great beach. Absolutely recommended.

Pleasantly surprised, spent a few days at Stefano and Anjas place recently. I was particulary blown away at the most magnificent park like garden. tranquil, natural and just plain enchanting. The accomodation was tastefully furnished in a practical no nonsense way and spotlessly clean. And the most fantastic shower! The folks were unobtrusive yet readliy available. To me it was...
