Our first impression of Xanadu was the beautiful and magnificent carved wood front door and as it opened we were warmly welcomed by the staff who immediately called the owner, Albert. We were made to feel very much at home in this beautiful and spacious guest house. It overlooks the sea with a tropical garden through which one could can...

This is our second visit and it will not stop there. The location and ocean view is amazing. The suites are all different but stunning. Wilderness itself is a little gem with great restaurants and accessibility to many places of interest. Hospitality is unlike anywhere we have ever stayed.

Albert and Tesia have built a wonderful family home over the last 15 years on the Wilderness Sand dunes, and developed this into a beautiful and palatial guest house. It is spatial, special and sumptuous. Quality furnishings, beautiful collections of art, and tasteful decorations. The gardens are on various levels, all immaculate with abundant dining areas, sun chairs, and sunbathing...

We loved the walks down from the gardens at the villa straight on to the wonderful beach. The hosts provide chairs and umbrellas for guests to enjoy. Inside the villa itself the views are magnificent and the furnishings live up to the grandeur of the location. Versace meets Hollywood! Excellent breakfasts, comfy beds. Can't really fault

Wonderful situated, lovely and luxurious guest house! Directly at the beach, on a dune! Very nice view, great beach. Breakfast very good. Would go there again! Style is a little bit old-fashioned. Very nice people!

This is a beautiful place to stay. Being right on the vast beach at the Wilderness the views are amazing. The outside garden/pool area is well laid out and there are numerous places to sit both in the sun and the shade. However, it is the inside of the villa that really takes your breath away from the moment you...

Our spacious bedroom (Dolphin) was light and airy, with a good view of the sea. The excellent classic 'English' breakfast often included delicious fresh fruit smoothies. We had a very pleasant time. Location at the beach ideal but its a bit of a walk into the village.

When the owner Albert opened the door we suddenly felt being in a dream directly at the beach. Xanadu offers an exclusive interior with lots of charme. Everyone can see that Tersia -the wife of the owner- has real understanding of making a home to a castle. Forget about all those stupid comments which some people posted about the furnitures....
