This small complex of self-catering apartments lies right on the beach of the Indian Ocean. You can almost see Antarctica!
At first sight, the apartment we stayed in looked slick and modern but without atmospheric lighting and proper reading lights. The apartment was clean; the amenities were varied but not all in working order. And while there was a clothes dryer, it strangely lacked a washing machine and there was no air conditioning; only a de-humidifier in one of the two bedrooms.
Once you stay there, it soon becomes clear that all is not hunky-dory. Despite the high accommodation charges, the owner seems to be cutting corners. During a 5-night stay, the bed linen in one of the rooms was never changed and the towels were frayed. One of the bedroom doors almost fell off its hinges. It was finally repaired. In one of the bedrooms, the ceiling was leaking from the upper apartment. There was no hot water in the kitchen. The microwave was faulty; halfway through the heating process it switched off. The internet was slow and for two days non-existent. The TV-cables had to be replaced. In short, maintenance is poor.
There was no information map. And when we asked for one, we were presented with a few outdated folders.
On the bright side: There is a nice private barbecue area and a sunken sitting area for a cosy fire, which you share with the other residents. There is also a small communal swimming pool. The lawn with umbrellas is pretty. Parking space is limited in bays on the street at the front of the building.

You simply cannot beat the location of Peacehaven on Sea in Wilderness. You would have to be an acclaimed poet to aptly describe the scene you wake up to in the morning and surrounding you during your stay.
Wilderness is our local holiday destination and we have been coming here for years and you will not find a better spot for beach access and proper R & R.
Unfortunately this is where it stops, well in our case anyway. On the first night we were robbed, and perhaps not as dramatic as it sounds, but from the poolside in front of the villa we rented, someone walked off the beach in the night and helped themselves to clothes, beach towels, kids toys, shoes etc. Petty? Perhaps so, but not a way to start a 3 week holiday.
I must add that absolutely no empathy from the owner and his staff who promptly referred me to the indemnity form I was asked to sign on arrival.
At around US$ 800 per day you would expect all the services that one will find in any establishment at that cost. But then I found out that the term "self catering" also means that you have to clean the place yourself too, huh?
Having 2 young kids on holiday requires all sorts of entertainment, which in our case also included watching some TV at night. It was confirmed that this would be available, but upon arrival, it turned out that unless the kids wanted to watch Al-jazeera news or a few other "highly entertaining" channels, they were left what their parents could dream up.
It may appear that I am sweating the small stuff, when we a part of a wondrous experience, but when one pays for this luxury, then I would expect a far higher standard that what we were subjected to.
We're it not for the location, this place would certainly not be worth coming back to.

Stunning location and accommodation is lovely. Let down by no hot water although claimed it it would come on after 5 minutes in a country with water issues! Also wifi is appalling. They need routers in each apartment. At this price the above should be expected.

This place was just amazing! Every single detail made it a paradise for us! It is right on the water, it has it's own pool. The bed was super comfortable, the bathroom and shower was just fabulous! And the best of all was the view for sunsets! If you see it available grab it!!!!

Just arrived at Peacehaven on sea and received terrible service! The safe was not working and the caretaker Lucky couldnt sort it. Upon going outside to the beach the door lock is broken and cant lock. The dvd player doesnt work as well as the surround sound. The curtains dont cover the windows at night. Its raining and now the tv doesnt work. The linen is so dirty and black at the bottom. They advertise cleaning daily but Lucky told us someone will come after 4 days to clean!!?? Owner cant be reached and Lucky just laughs at us!!! We have never received such bad service ever!!! View is beautiful but thats where it ends!!! So disappointed!

I booked this accommodation through booking.com. The booking page requests a credit card detail to secure the booking - only to get notification that full payment went off our credit card.

Today we arrived to a very unfriendly reception at Peacehaven. After seeing the pics on thd website, seaviews from the rooms, I couldn't wait for our romantic weekend away. How surprized was to see our room...... the double garage of this house was converted into a room... no bigger than 30sq. I sat on the loo and could brush my teeth, see myself in the mirror and spit in the basin. When I called Deon to tell him I'm really disappointed, I got nothi g but attitude from him. I found it amazing that both the unfriendly host and Deon was quick to offer an upgrade to 3 times the fee we paid - which wasn't the cheapest fee in Wilderness to start with.

We stayed at Wilderness Beach Resort previously and I should have booked us there again.

WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN.

If you are looking for accommodation in Wilderniss. Don't bother to try Peacehaven on Sea.. You will get no response. Even if you try an equiry through Safarinow you will get only response from Safari telling you they know Peacehaven on sea got the message, but they don't get back to you. I understand now all the other bad reviews. If they can't even answer your enquiry how will the service be??

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.

This beachfront, self-catering accommodation boasts a small number of units which are very well appointed.
The view of the Indian Ocean is stunning.
You can walk for miles along a splendid beach which, apart from the Christmas season, is almost deserted.
There are a number of good restaurants within walking distance at the village of Wilderness
A large shopping mall is a short ride away.
The right place for long beach walks and diving into the surf.

During last Christmas holiday my family and I booked the "Honeymoon" suite in this hotel. Let me tell you: if you are on a honeymoon, this is NOT where you want to be. The room must have been the maid' s room that the owner has decided to turn into an extra opportunity for his business. The room is small, old and dirty and cannot accommodate 4 people! The bathroom is also old and dirty. The fridge is completely empty (not even water! ) and all of this war very expensive!

Of course we left immediately and we never had our money back (3 nights paid in advance)!
