Review of Paradise Cove
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Feb 2017
Situated in Victoria Heights on a headland between George and Wilderness, the aptly named Paradise Cove was delightful. Paradise Cove consists of a block of 4 thatched cottages set in an immaculate garden in which are also situated the main reception area/dining room building and the house belonging to the German owners. There is a lovely pool area and masses of birds.
In the block of 4 cottages there is a communal seating area with a microwave and additional crockery and cutlery as well as plenty of information leaflets for local attractions.
Our cottage was number 3 and had the best view right along the beach and surrounding hillsides. We also had a good vantage point from which to watch the para-gliders take off from the nearby hillside. The room was high ceilinged with a natural thatch covering, the bed was extremely comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. The bathroom – much to our delight – had a proper wall-mounted shower as opposed to the rainshower model we hate.

We had breakfast in the patio area - a wide choice is available and it’s all prepared to order, with beautiful presentation.
We would happily have stayed longer than the 2 nights we had as part of our road trip and would recommend it to anyone staying in the area.
We asked for a recommendation for a restaurant and were recommended “Girls” in Wilderness, which also provides a shuttle service for its diners. We had an excellent dinner there. The food was good and the service impeccable.
Date of stay: January 2017
Room Tip: cottage no. 3 had the best view over the beach

Reviewed 29 December 2016

We stayed at Paradise Cove for 6 nights in October for the second time, we cannot fault the location and the service, the host/manager Tersia is a tribute to the Guesthouse and its cleanliness and the breakfast is without question one of the best we have had in any guesthouse, a true eye to detail with the important things that matter, hot well cooked and loving prepared food, any one can do a breakfast but the quality is the lasting impression of the host and the location, beautiful grounds and delightful pool area.

This place is a true gem. We will return time and time again. We cannot praise Tersia and the team highly enough, thank you so much for looking after us and making this stay quite special.

Lovely setting looking down over Wildernesse beach. Thatched roofs in delightful garden with secluded pool. Delicious breakfast served out side if weather allows. 10 - 15 minutes drive to Wildernesse or George. Highly recommend.
Only comment - think extractor fan in bathroom would be an idea as it got very steamy

My wife and I went on a little holiday last week to this lovely place. Firstly, when we walked into the room and saw the wonderful view of the beach we knew this place was special. We could see the whole of Wilderness, the beach, and in the mornings how the sun comes up over the ocean. Secondly, the breakfast was amazing, we got served with some of the best looking (and tasting) fruits, omelettes, hot chocolate, etc. Tersia really knows what she is doing. Thirdly, the staff are really friendly and helpful, with the breakfast a friendly smile and chat, when we come into the room it was made up neat and tidy.
We really enjoyed our stay, and we really do recommend it to everyone who would be going to this area.
Looking forward to our next visit!
