My wife and I have returned to Moontide seven years after we first stayed there on our honeymoon. Happy to say that the room, service, breakfast , pets, and experience was as lovely as what is was seven years ago! Thank you to Tim and Maureen for an amazing two nights. We will definitely be back!

We spent a fantastic few days at the Moontide guest house this weekend. We love Wilderness and this cosy and tranquil guesthouse didn't disappoint. We stayed in the boathouse, which is right on the water and has the most amazing view. On our first night the weather was dreadful, raining and miserable. The boathouse was the perfect place to be,...

When we arrived at this lovely venue we both felt excited to be staying in such a unique property. We were shown to a room which at first seemed very different and interesting - which we liked. I think we stayed 2 nights but was very glad to be gone and on to our next abode along the garden route....

Thank you for taking the trouble to review your stay at Moontide. It is always disappointing when someone is not happy with their stay at Moontide, but we do appreciate feedback, and do take positive actions to improve our service and standards.

What a wonderful spot, tranquility, wild life on the lagoon, easy walking to the beach and good restaurants. Luxurious and really tasteful african decor in the rondavels. Sandy beach made a lovely walk. Breakfast delicious and an extremely pleasant and helpful host, Tim.

A great place to stopover if you are exploring the Garden Route and I dare say an equally good place to stay if you want to spend more time in Wilderness. The rooms are quaint and thatched. If I had one small complaint it was that there was a musty smell in each room but that faded after a while....
