Self-catering accommodation with beautiful views of the nearby Outeniqua Mountains. A private walking trail winds through the indigenous forest and along the Silver River, affording you the opportunity to encounter rare birds like the brilliantly coloured Knysna Loerie or paradise flycatcher. You may also take a refreshing swim in the river's natural pools. Beautiful views from elevated wooden treetop decks.

Excellent stay at the Metanoia, hosts were warm and friendly, the view from the estate was breathtaking, the self catering unit was modern, spacious and comfortable, the estate was manicured to perfection, the location displayed the true essence of the Wilderness.

Wilderness Metanoia is a very unique place for all those who look for recreation in a wonderfully stylish and modern chalet, surrounded by lush nature and in a setting that allows stunning views of the Garden Route National Park mountain ridges. It's near enough to George and Wilderness with their restaurant and shopping offers and yet "miles away" when it comes to taking a break from the bustle of the well-trodden tourist paths. A gem of peace, harmony and contemplation.

My family and I spent the night at Metanoia - celebrated Pesach and to reconnect with one another as we don't all come from the same town. It was a beautiful and peaceful experience. They had everything that was needed and more. Friendly service and not to mention the spectacular views with beautiful walkways and hiking trails . Wish we had booked for a longer stay. Thank you so very much for an unforgettable evening.

Firstly the name of the place we booked was Claiirwood Estate . We could not find as it does not exist. The name had been changed to Metanoia but we were not told. A neighbour near where the Google maps took us said to go there. No bell, no reception just tow big gates. Luckily gardener was in calling distance and let us in. Nobody to greet you and we assumed the one chalet with a key in the door was for us. No instructions in house re wifi, walks etc Everything well maintained and meticulous. lovely unit and big gardens and pool in forest. Great birding etc Just very weird to go somewhere and be the only people there with nobody to ask if we were even in the right place Eventually found a family member on the property who helped Very strange experience. Great board walks long path to rivers a few km away but no indication in chalet re anything at all.

This was an amazing experience for us as a family. It was without doubt the most beautiful and well-kept location that we have visited. The serene surroundings with only birds and frogs to listen to, provided a welcome breakaway from the noisy rush of daily life. The well-kept tenniscourt and swimming pool took care of both our daily exercise and relaxation. We will most definitely recommend this stunning retreat to anyone who can appreciate nature and hope to visit again in future. Thank you to the most hearty hosts, who really go the extra mile to make our stay unforgettable.

We had such a wonderful experience staying at Clairewood. The grounds are meticulously kept; the chalet has everything one would need and is very neat, homy and new and the hospitality was top notch. We look forward to our next stay!

If you want a true break-away to get away from your busy-life, then I would highly recommend Clairewood. Here you can clear your head and enjoy nature. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful! We would love to visit again.
