We stayed here for 4 nights & absolutely loved it. The staff are exceptionally helpful - nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in a self catering chalet & I think it's fair to say that it was a little tired. The sun loungers had broken rattan, the lights in the lounge didn't work, the mixer tap on the bath & the hose to the bath shower head were broken. However, that being said, when these issues were pointed out, those that could be quickly resolved were done so before we returned from our days activities. I would also maybe suggest some candles to be provided during load shedding. The view is absolutely to die for, & waking up hearing the ocean will never get old for me! The kitchen is good & adequately equipped & the BBQ also worked well, which was good given that we had load shedding during our visit. The fire in the lounge also worked well & was warmed the cabin up very quickly. The housekeeping team were great, apart from on the last day, when we'd left towels in the bath (as instructed to be changed) & when we got back to the chalet they had been left out on the balcony & not changed. If I had been made aware that we only had a specific number of towel changes for the visit I wouldn't have left them in the bath to get damp, I would have just hung them up - maybe it would be easier just to provide the maximum number of towels for the visit at the beginning & allow the guests to decide when to use/change them? The onsite bar/restaruant has recently been renovated & is under new management (not currently showing so I can't leave a separate review) & I honestly cannot speak more highly of the team. They had only reopened a few days before we stayed & they are doing a fabulous job in post COVID times when everything must feel like a battle. All wines are local, their menu is quirky & the place has a real family feel to it. I believe Lisa & Clayton are the owners & if I was a local resident then this would be one of my regular haunts! Keep up the good work, along with Marco the bar tender, Lente & Jade the waitresses (always had a smile), Shirann & Carmen the chefs & then Matthew who the place couldn't run withuout! Would I stay again - 100%.

Our family has a great time in Wilderness and the surrounding areas. The view was amazing, and the unit modernly decorated and fully equipped. The highlight was however the exceptional service rendered by the Boardwalk team. Keep it up!

The apartment was everything we needed… and more! The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We brought our own ground coffee, which was perfect with the supplied french press :). The views, sound of the ocean and the amazing fireplace during the cold winter nights was amazing! We could braai every evening on the really nice Weber. All in all a lovely stay! One tip is to bring your own extra small towel per person. Other than that, a perfect stay. We give it a 5/5!
