We stayed at Hildesheim in mid December 2023 while visiting from Canada. It was an absolutely wonderful stay and felt like we were in paradise. Steve and Charmaine were so friendly, attentive and delightful to get to know. We are a family of 7 and our parents also came with to enjoy catching up which worked out well and they had a wonderful time. There were a few additional needs we had and I especially appreciated being able to use Steve's office for an online work presentation. Our children enjoyed the pool of course but also just the tranquility and ability to walk to the corner cafe and the health shop next door. The accessibility to Wilderness beaches, Vic Bay, the mall, as well as Plett, Sedgefield and Knysna is perfect. We cannot wait to visit this little paradise in Wilderness again, see you soon Steve and Charmaine!

We had 5 nights at Hildesheim Guest Lodge in the family room which was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Steve and Charmaine were outstanding hosts and breakfast was fantastic. Communal areas were lovely and views and the garden beautiful. Would highly recommend and we would definitely stay there again.

I cannot put into words how awesome this place is....the views, the hosts, the breakfast. I cannot fault them or the place. Even the dog that randomly comes for a visit. Charmaine and Steve attended to our every need.

Most enjoyable stay overall. The owners have recently taken over and will no doubt have to make some changes to deal with load shedding. Additional lighting was provided for and hot water was not a problem. Backup power for a hairdryer is essential for my wife to stay there again. Overall a comfortable and friendly place to stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Our room was great, the bed very comfy, and the location perfect! The guest house feels so relaxing and secluded, with amazing views and plenty of wildlife, but still close to shopping, restaurants, sightseeing, beaches, and activities such as parasailing and hiking trails. Our hosts, Steve and Charmaine, were friendly and went the extra mile to make our stay memorable. We planned a day at the beach and were offered beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and even a cooler box to pack a picnic. We were even given champagne flutes, an ice bucket, and candles to use one evening. We extended our stay a few extra days and can't wait for our next visit. Thank you!
