Unique location and very well designed rooms with great feel for detail. Great hospitality and good breakfast and diner. An absolute great view and very quiet. Only for adults. It is close to nice small village with good restaurants and other facilities.

We enjoyed just two nights at Porcupine Pie and wish we had been able to stay longer. Now back in the UK and I can say this was my highlight of our five week stay along the garden route. If you love a wonderful view from your room, comfortable bed, a bathroom with a view to die for, peace &...

Beautiful peaceful surroundings, with amazing views, only 15 minutes up a single slightly bumpy track from the coast...a place to unwind! John is a very good host and great Chef (if you don't mind dinner at a set time), wonderful breakfasts and good knowledge of the area

The property is set in a beautiful remote valley location, with accommodation comprising of a Lapa and three stilt cabins set into a steep grassy valley with fantastic views. The cabins are spotless, fully equipped (snacks/wine/beers/biscuits) etc to enable you to have a comfortable evening, bearing in mind the remoteness of the property, this was an excellent touch. The spacious...

Fantastic place where you can relax. The way up is quite narrow and bumpy, but once in place, the view is extraordinary. Unfortunately, we had bad luck with the weather as it rained quite a lot. If you come here, taker a walk from the house to the waterfall. Well worth it!

What a lovely and unique place this is that Judy and John have created in the mountains of Wilderness. Breathtaking views and wonderfully designed Lodges with perfect sunlight and natural colours coming up especially in the afternoon when the sun sets. And once you have also had dinner prepared by John accompanied by the view and good wine you have...

We stayed for three nights over new year. It was a bit of a shock arriving on the steep rough road but once you got used to driving it, it was fine even in a little car. Well worth it for the views at the end anyway. The chalets are very private and we must have had a bath with...

We were fortunate enough to spend our 10 year wedding anniversary here. Beautiful setting. Porcupine Pie is off the main road. There is quite a narrow meandering path leading to the lodge. The lodge consists of a couple of cabins on a steep slope, spaced well apart from wach other. Very romantic, serene, peaceful and quite. Cabins are well equiped....
