A late review but better late then never, as they say. My husband and I, together with our English Bulldog, stayed at the beautiful guesthouse - Huis am Strand in May. Rita kindly allowed us to bring our dog though this isn't allowed during Season and school holidays, from what we understand. Hosts Rita and Mike were always available to assist with questions and recommendations. We stepped from our patio onto the grass and straight onto the sand and we walked on the long stretch of beach. It is truly a magnificent venue if you simply need a good rest or wish to take part in the many recreational activities in the area. We drove to the Sedgfield Saturday market, did quad biking at WildX Adventures and Micolighting with The Flying Club at Woodville, Hoekwil, ate meals at The River Deck at the turn-off to Buffalo Bay, at Hoeka Toeka in Hoekwil and at The Girls and Ilali on the main drag in Wilderness. The Spar is also well equipped and 5 minutes away for convenient foods. Hubby was fetched by Greg, from Canyon Adventures, for 4 hours of fun Kloofing in the area (Abseling is available too). Huis am Strand is a guesthouse not a B&B, however, there is no shortage of places to eat breakfast nearby. The two rooms we were in (we had to move when we extended our stay) were filled with character and the small touches that count and were very comfortable and they have absolutely everything one needs for a self catering stay. In addition, they're cleaned daily and the cleaning staff and gardener were always very pleasant. We spent hours relaxing on the deck-chairs under warm blankets staring at the sea and the Dolphins playing in the waves. The best was lying in bed listening to the sound of the sea. This totally blocks out any noise one might hear from the highway behind the house. We do not hesitate to recommend this establishment.…
Absolutely lovely location right on the beach. Accommodation (Honeymoon Suite) looked just as shown in the pictures and just loved the decor!. Amazing view. Excellent staff that were so helpful. Braai facilities should you need them and kitchenette was well equipped. Loved the garden too. Convenient to shops and restaurants, although we were there during lockdown so had takeaways. One comment - would have been nice to have bigger bath towels! Otherwise we cannot wait to go back.
Haus am Strand is "the" place to stay on the Garden Route. Located in Wilderness where everything you need is a five minute walk away. The lodging we had was a large one-bedroom apartment with full kitchen. The dining room glass door look out over a grass area with chairs and tables, then the beach, and then the waves of the ocean. The bedroom was large and warm -- it was winter. The bathroom was clean and the shower had great water pressure and hot water. The room was cleaned everyday and there was always someone sweeping, mowing, or raking the grounds. And the best thing are the owners. Have a question and they have the answer! We made reservations for two days and stayed four days. We highly recommend a stay at Haus am Strand.
Absolutely incredible!! We have been here for just over two weeks, and will be staying for another 6! The units are lovely, the garden is private and beautifully kept. The view is stunning and you're only a few steps right off of the gorgeous Wilderness beach front!! Rita is an absolute delight, extremely accommodating, and on the ball. We have been coming to Wilderness for years and honestly this our new favourite place to stay. We will certainly be back!!:)
Wow. We stayed at the venue for 5 nights the Easter over the Easter weekend in the Ocean View suite. Absolutely stunning on the beach. Magnificent views of the surrounding hill seas and the sea. Rita and Mike are fantastic hosts. Highly recommend a stay at this venue
