On Wilderness Beach, one of the world's most beautiful beaches, with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean, the Dune Guest Lodge provides a rare taste of paradise. Our guest lodge is a refreshingly informal beach house, with direct access to the endless Wilderness Beach. Whales and dolphins can be viewed directly from your private sundeck, or from the deck at the poolside where our private swimming pool sparkles invitingly in the warm sunshine.

Gary, Rose, Barnie and the rest of the crew have made for a most memorable stay. Yet, the amazing location with unparalleled views, the wonderfully furnished guest house and the amazing rooms did. their fair share to make our three days in Wilderness most special. A treat !

The Setting of the Lodge itself is already stunning but the warm & professional service from Rose and team made our stay perfect. A highlight for sure is the breakfast served by owner Gery that can easily end up in a sophisticated discussion.

Stayed at Dune Beach House during December 2022. It is absolutely beautiful a resting place for the soul with beautiful views of the beach and ocean. Our room was so tastefully decorated as was the rest of the house. The housekeeping service was always done with a smile. The breakfast - thank you Gary - was amazing and partly responsible for the January diet. The atmosphere is very peaceful and quite, which we really enjoyed. Have already booked for December 2023. Looking forward to our next visit.

located on the top of the dunes, Seaview from your bed. Walking down to the beach and swimming area. A lush breakfast with lots of choices. Modern style. No diner is served, but enough choice in Wilderness.

Dune Beach House is located close to the beaches with lifeguards. In Wilderness this is something to keep in mind since the ocean is quite dangerous. The guest house is also within walking distance from a good restaurant called Salina's. This is a beautiful property. We stayed in the Ocean room. The room has a small seating area with a coffee station. The coffee station included a coffee machine. There is also a small deck in front of the room with views of the beach. If you want sunset views consider the rooms on the other side of the house - I think Sea Shell? I liked the glass table in the room with a mirror which made it easy to use a hair dryer or to organise what to pack for your activities on the day. I also enjoyed the large built-in cupboards. The mini-fridge is located inside the built-in cupboard which is excellent since you can close the door and you won't hear the fridge at night. I approached my stay at the end of our holiday as a mini spa break and enjoyed the fact that the glossy bathroom has a bath and shower. The pool area will be nice on windy days since it seems to be quite protected. Some guest houses on Wilderness beach offer 180 degree views. You can get this view from the beach but not from the Ocean room. As I mentioned accessing the beach is really easy.

We had a fantastic stay at the Dunes Beach House. The room is exquisite and clean. The views are breathtaking and breakfast is superb. Gary, the owner is so helpful and friendly. We had our 18 year wedding anniversary and it will be a time never to forget. Thanks for a fabulous stay. Hope to see you again.

Thank you Gary & Rose for a wonderful stay at the Dune Beach Guest House. We were booked in the Beach Room and it was spotless, beautifully kept and the room and bathroom is abundantly spacious. Very luxurious and comfy bed and pillows with crisp clean linen. Elegantly decorated Guest House for drawing some inspiration also. What a great place to stay in Wilderness, quiet, peaceful and amazing hospitality. 10/10 will stay here again.

Dune Beach House is perfectly located right on the beach. Every room has a spectacular view of the sea. Aside from the beach, there are many other things to undertake in the vicinity like the hikes in the indigenous forest close by. The rooms and the lounges at Dune Beach House are beautifully decorated and each one on the ground floor has a patio with lounges or a balcony on the first floor. Owners and staff take great care to abide by the Covid regulations which is so important in these times.

Thank you for making our stay so comfy and healthily safe during this Covid time. What a delightful surprise of and upgrade to a bigger room. Thank you for understanding when we asked for a view of the sea from our room which was awesome and the short few steps to the beautiful beach. Well worth a stay as everyone was friendly and very helpful.

What a beautiful setting above the beach at Wilderness. I should point out that it is now called Dune Beach House. The house itself is set above the beach and has direct access onto the beach via a set of stairs. The accommodation was spotless, well fitted out and convenient for other attractions in Wilderness. The building itself is sited ona quiet road of prestige buildings with plenty of parking for guests.It has lovely art throughout the property which adds to the location ambiance. Breakfast was served in the dining room and was of a high quality. The owners were delightful and gave us pointers where we could buy similar art to what they have on display. A delight to stay here.
