Shining Waters is run by an amazing couple, who is truly friendly, and kind. The place has a wonderful view of the ocean, but since the accommodation is on a cliff it could be quite daunting to get down there. (We however managed well). Lots of stairs (if you are unsteady on your feet, you will not like this) but...

We were looking for a place in Wilderness to stay as a base to see the surrounding area as well as Knysna. We had to search a while to find a place that would sleep three.

This Guest house is situated right on the cliffs overlooking Wilderness beach so the views are fantastic. If possible, try and get the suite with the sea view at the top as it has a good sized balcony and lovely bathroom. The breakfast was great, especially as the sun was shining so we had it on the balcony. The owners...

Overlooking the sea with no other properties in-between. A superb beach with miles of fine white sand in both directions. Our room had a separate entrance and a deck with a west-facing view over the sea and ideal for sunset! Highly recommended.

We stayed two nights in this B&B in Wilderness. Location is great, right on the cliffs overlooking the beach and the sea. It's a very large house, with big common rooms and even a small gym. All is clean and spacious. Rooms all have sea view, either from a balcony or a terrace. Free coffee and tea, and an honesty-bar...
