I stayed at the same guest house two years ago. John is the new owner, Very professional; very friendly, clean rooms with a great view. I will definitely come again. I do think this is John's passion.

Beautiful B&B, well positioned and our host John was fantastic. Breakfast was most enjoyable. We were able to explore the surrounding garden route with ease and we were very central which allowed us to do and see more of the surrounding sights

Hosts were kind and helpful. Everything was clean. The place had a nice pool and an excellent view to... More

Renato and Corinne thank you for a total relaxed vacation. Breakfast was definitely first class with Corinne preparing fresh breakfast to your taste. The view was breathtaking and comfortable and neat rooms was an extra plus points. Rooms service every day made the vacation even more relaxed. Until next time.

This is one of the cheaper accommodations in Wilderness but nevertheless you get everything you wish for. Great luxury rooms with balcony overlooking the Indian ocean. Nice garden with pool. Very good value for money. Definately recommend it to couples (no children allowed).

Stayed here at the end of April. Delightful owners with a great service oriented attitude. The room, cleanliness and location of the b and b are all first class. One small complaint- the water pressure is very low. :(. Certainly worth a stay.

We stayed just one night at Shining Waters and the hosts are just delightful. You may be put off by the husband who seem rather stern at first meeting but you quickly realize he is a warm and welcoming host.
