397 Waterside Road, Wilderness, 6560

Almost halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, and twenty five kilometres from George Airport, lays the tranquil seaside village of Wilderness.

Situated in Waterside Road, overlooking the beautiful Wilderness Lagoon in the scenic village of Wilderness is the elegant and refined Wilderness Manor Guest House. Wilderness Manor is within easy and safe walking distance to golden beaches, restaurants and village shops.

This exquisitely decorated home has an ambience of tranquillity, style and luxury. It is beautifully decorated in a colonial style with fine oriental rugs, family heirlooms, antiques, art, books and collectables. Relax in the spacious guest lounge or billiard / reading room with superb views from the balconies overlooking the lagoon.

Guests can retire to the serenity of four stylish en-suite bedrooms:
three luxury and spacious lagoon facing rooms on the second floor (big bathrooms with separate bath and shower, twin hand basins and heated towel rails), and one standard garden room on the ground floor with a private garden / patio (a smaller bathroom with shower only, single hand basin and heated towel rail).

Look forward to an English and Continental breakfast which is served in our breakfast room, opening onto a sunny balcony overlooking the indigenous forest, where the Knysna Loerie comes to feed…
