Very welcoming and a comfortable stay in the Boat House - to be highly recommended! The position of the Guest House was perfect. Breakfast was delicious. We would certainly highly recommend a couple of nights here.

My hubby planned a very romantic getaway for us at the Moontide Guesthouse for valentines, it was our first time visiting the place and it was breath taking. The staff were very accommodating especially Judge who made sure all our needs were met. We stayed in the Stone Cottage which was absolutely beautiful, very homely feeling. Would definitely recommend anyone...

For location, hospitality and ambiance, this is very hard to better! Wilderness is probably the best beach along the Garden Route about 4 hours drive from Cape Town.For the scenic drive, stop in at Hermanus on the way.

We spent 3 nights at Moontide in the Stone House with our 2 year old daughter. What a lovely place! The staff were amazing, especially Judge. They were very welcoming to our family. The stone house is very nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable with a beautiful, small, private courtyard. We ate each breakfast outside overlooking the lagoon, watching the...

Me and my family enjoyed our stay at the Moontide Guest House so much due to the caring staff, the excellent location and the perfect calm and peaceful atmosphere that reigns the premises! A place definitely worth to spend several days and decide on either activities or just gazing at the lake and reading a book.

The wellcom was very warm. We stay only for one night in the boothouse. It was so nice and comfortabel. Next time we stay longer. Thanks for the tip for a great restaurant. The breakfast left nothing to be desired.Thanks for all.

A warm welcome awaits you as you turn up at this hideaway. The chalets are well appointed with all mod cons. Tim is most helpful with information about what to do and where to go and the staff are friendly and provide a good breakfast. Sitting on the side of the lagoon for a sundowner or breakfast is a real...

My wife and I spent a fabulous week here over the New Year holidays; just an awesome place with great and incredibly friendly management and staff.

A great location for the view over the lagoon, ambience and for sightseeing at that end of the Garden Route. The staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful, service was good, and the breakfast each day was excellent. We had the cottage just inside the entrance with its own private garden, which was lovely (it has an attached room so...

Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review. Part of the charm of Moontide is that it is situated amongst 400 year old Milkwood trees. These trees are protected, and even if we hated them we could do nothing about them. But we love them! The problems you experienced with the room were mostly sorted out in October/...

To start with the positives: the location is brilliant, breakfast enjoyable and the owners and staff consistently cheerful and helpful, but... We were booked into Moon Shadow 1 and 2, which looked very smart on the website. Reality was rather disappointing. These two rooms appear to be converted garages, i.e. dark, dank and overlooking the car park: perfect for a...

We were most concerned to read this review, as we recall the guests and the occasion well, it having been an unseasonably humid few days. Humidity, as anyone who has lived in such a climate knows, does make fabrics clammy. It is not at all usual in Wilderness, thank heavens. We thoroughly clean rooms daily. Every room is freshly made...
