Everything was perfect. The decor is stunning and the views take your breath away. All the staff were wonderful and the owners made us feel welcome. Xanadu is a perfect place just to be or to explore the beautiful surroundings.

Albert & Tersia were very welcoming and kind. The accommodation is stunning and is excellent value for money - we would highly recommend it. Full English breakfast is included and an honesty bar is available. Very elegantly furnished and Tersia is a fantastic artist with her oil and water colour paintings displayed around the property.

We travelled the last 14 years at the garden Route between Capetown and PE. This is the most beautiful guesthouse we ever have had at that area. Big compliment to Mrs and Mr Hoffmann. Perfect location

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for the wonderful stay at your guest house. Everything was simply perfect, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Your Villa is truly amazing, and its location right in front of the beach is absolutely beautiful. The impeccable service, comfortable accommodations, and breathtaking views made my stay unforgettable. Thank you for your exceptional hospitality and for creating such a delightful retreat. I look forward to visiting again in the future.

My hubby and I came across this guest house whilst driving alongside the beach looking for a place to overnight whilst en route to Cape Town. I called the owner and he very graciously offered us a room at a remarkable rate. On entering this guest house we were taken aback. The place is exactly as you would see in the pictures only more beautiful. Each room has a different colour scheme, art and decor, tastefully furnished and absolutely breath taking. There is also a Presidential Suite on the upper level which is out of this world. It reminded me very much of the Red Carnation hotels, ie the Oyster Box in KZN and the Twelve Apostles in Cape Town. Having stayed at both these hotels I would rate this guest house very similar if not better. Seven stars is what should be given to this gem. The owner was helpful and invited us to sit anywhere in the house to enjoy the sea views which our room didn’t have. This place is right on the beach. My only regret is not having stayed longer. But we will definitely visit again. Do yourself a favour and stay at this gorgeous guest house when next in the Wilderness. You will be glad you did.

Albert and Tersia were very attentive hosts and clearly proud of their magnificent home. The situation is spectacular, and the opulence of the whole house is superb value for money. We particularly enjoyed the magnificent artwork and antique furniture.

Xanadu certainly lived up to its name. This fabulous villa is right on the beautiful Wilderness beach and close to local restaurants. We were made most welcome and experienced wonderful hospitality. Our room was immaculate, with comfortable bed and balcony with loungers overlooking the beach. We enjoyed every moment of our stay and hope to return in the future.
