Our room was bright and spacious and very clean. You can see the ocean from the shower. Beds are very comfortable and I haven't slept...

This is one of the easiest reviews I have ever written, there is simply nothing not to love about this remarkable guesthouse.

Then the decor and appointments...

My perfect summer days at Wilderness started by enjoying the gorgeous beach view from our balcony. I would then go for a run/walk on the beach which seem to never end. Back at the lodge a jug of ice cold lemon/mint/strawberry infused water will be ready to enjoy. Following a refreshing rain shower in the gorgeous, modern suite I would...
