Wilderness beach is justly famous, and Xanadu gives you as easy access as you could wish, only a few steps down. For the rest: we had a spacious room (indeed a suite), well appointed, with a lovely terrace and view on the beach, a very comfortable bed. Albert and Tersia and their team gave us a very friendly welcome: they...

One of the great mysteries of the world must be how Xanadu can possibly be ranked 8/54 in Wilderness. Unless other places offer gold taps, personal massage and butler service I'm at a loss to know why Xanadu is not much higher. It must be one of the most exacting properties in the world, let alone SA. Stunning setting, architecturally...

This Guest Villa was definitely one of the highlights of our month long trip. We stayed there for three nights and enjoyed the pure luxury. The decor is so tastefully done and yet you can still feel at home. Nothing is too much for the owners to do for you, and their presence ensures that everything runs smoothly. The breakfasts...

From our host to the rooms to the views to the breakfasts and everything else in between, Xanadu is a breathtakingly stunning place. Very rarely do you find a place where the experience and value you get notably out do the price you paid and thus further make it that much more pleasurable. Xanadu is one of those unicorns.

Stayed here for three nights, wish it had been more. The house overlooks the Indian Ocean and the back gate opens directly onto the beach. We arrived to see Dolphins playing just off shore. The house is incredibly beautiful, artistically furnished and superbly decorated; the bedrooms are airy and spacious, more like mini suites than bedrooms. Albert and Turcia are...

The owners are very welcoming and friendly. The house is nicely decorated, feels like home. The views are Picturesque. The domestic help were very warm and helpful, before leaving on our last day, one of the cleaners quickly rushed up to me to let me know I had left my glasses behind. Thank you! Wonderful stay.
