They advertise beautiful views and we were given an apartment with no view and noise from the street and highway behind the establishment. The apartment has mod cons but the microwave is out of order and there is a mixture of crockery in a cupboard you cannot reach. The Wilderness is a beautiful place but unfortunately there are con artists who seem to want to grab as much as they possibly can during high season without putting anything back in to maintain a standard one would expect for the rate you pay. Toilet seat is brocken too and the blind fell off it hinges when we tried to open it to get some light in.

We stayed over at Peacehaven On Sea in November this year and stayed in room 204 (a "four-bed A-Grade" room). First the good. The price-to-value ratio is really awesome. Great price for a really spacious, well-equipped room. We are a family of four and the room actually offered six beds: a double in the main bedroom, two singles in the separate spare bedroom and then two stacked beds in the rear part of the open-plan lounge area. Lots of cupboards with lots of packing space, too. It has a large kitchen equipped with a full size fridge/feezer, smallish stove, microwave oven, kettle, toaster, two basins and all the utensils you would need plus more. Also four bar stools and a large counter area spacious enough for family meals. The flat also has a full bathroom (shower, bath and basin) and a separate toilet. The lounge area is really spacious for the price and was equipped with a corner couch, separate couch/chair and a (smallish) wall-mounted TV. Finally, it also includes a plastic kiddies table and four kiddies chairs, also in the lounge area. The flat is equipped with ceiling fans (no aircon, but at the price it was not to be expected). The main bedroom, spare bedroom and lounge area offer spectacular views over the Scottburgh bay area. No balcony - all fully enclosed with glass-and-aluminium windows. More on this a bit later in my review... There is an enclosed, shared "braai" (barbeque) area downstairs - really handy when the wind blows or if it rains. And a small pool and jungle gym next to a nice lawn area - great for the kids to swim and play. Peacehaven also has its own laundromat on the top floor (there are two lifts, so you don't have to use the stairs...), which saves packing space if you are prepared to do some washing while on holiday. So on to the not-so-good... The fridge door has one shelf for tall "upright" containers and bottles (milk, water, etc), but this shelf was unusable - only a small "ledge", so every time the door is yanked open whatever is on the shelf topples over and onto the floor. Not a deal-breaker, just irritating - all your tall items have to lie flat on the glass shelves in the fridge. Then, the shower has no light of its own - it "shares" the light further into the bathroom and is quite poorly lit (a little bit "freaky", as my 7-year-old called it...). The "braai" (barbeque) utensils are there, but not great - rather bring your own. The TV only offers a few channels, but fortunately Boomerang is one of them, so at least something for the kids to watch if the weather is bad and you have seen all the sights. Also note that the USB port on the TV cannot read movie files, only photo files! Be prepared for a lacklustre cleaning service; we were aware that dishwashing and bed-making services are not offered, but we even found the remaining "service" (sweeping floors, wiping kitchen tops, etc) to be below-par on most occasions. Also be prepared for very narrow parking spaces if you have a large car! It took some maneuvering to get my Honda Accord into no 204's cramped parking space... Then finally, and my largest gripe by a country mile, was the horrendous howling and squealing we had to endure for one night (until I figured out how to shut the noise up) from the wind blowing through small gaps in the sea-facing aluminium window frames. This was especially evident during times where the wind was particularly blustery (so not heard all the time), but it kept is up one night during a heavy spell and almost drove me nuts trying to find ways to make it go quiet! It is the result of an obvious window installation (read: "QUALITY") fault due to some of the openable windows not creating a proper seal when closed. This leads to a continuous, mind-numbing howling through the little gaps - not great at night when you are trying to sleep. The next day I bought a roll of masking tape and taped shut ("DIY-sealed") the problematic gaps during another windy spell until all the howling had stopped. We had peace for the entire time we were there after that, but be warned! Your stay at Peacehaven On Sea could turn into Noisehaven On Sea if you are not prepared! I would have given this review 4 stars if it were not for the above.

The room was very nice and clean and well appointed. The gentleman that runs the place is really trying his best but the owner apparently lives in Johannesburg. If you book the 'honeymoon room', which we were recommended to book by the owner, be prepared for people walking 1 meter past your entrance, up and down while you want to have a braai or meal outside and other guests that have to use this narrow passage to get to the beach will also spoil your privacy and use of the very small outdoor area. The swimming pool right at your entrance is also used by other guests, which I could still handle. But the invasion of your privacy I really did not appreciate - especially after the amount of money we were charged.

We stayed in suite 2. The pictures from the web site of the living room shows totally different furniture. What you will meet is furniture that seems to come from a dump. The fireplace is hidden behind an ugly unsittable couch and not functioning. The dryer did not work. Air conditioner in only one bedroom. The flat is in a basement and feels like a bunker. No view at all from small windows in bedrooms except over a wall and overfull trash bins. There was an awful smell in the fridge and a strong smell of mold in kitchen cabinets. The kitchen equipment was in bad shape. This is more like a one-star living, but the view outside from the terrace is good. The owner, Deon Meyer, did first not respond to complaints. When he finally answered he was only rude. He took 100% payment "by misstanke" when the deposit was transferred. We have got no refund and have reported him to the police for fraud.
