We highly recommend Interlaken as one of the best places to stay in Wilderness! We stayed in the honeymoon suite over the December period and it was everything we wanted and more. The room was neat and clean with beautiful linen and all the amenities that we needed, breathtaking views of the lake from all sides of the room, peace...

We spent two nights at Interlaken guest house and really enjoyed it. The room was spacious and clean and the view from our terrace (on the top) was simply breath-taking.

We stayed at Interlaken in Wilderness in November 2013 for 3 days and just loved it! There are 3 spacious guest rooms looking out on a beautiful 180 degree view of tranquil Island Lake and the meandering river and wetlands. We came home early each day just to contemplate the view from our private deck. The bird-watching from the deck...

We had an excellent stay in the Interlaken guest house, and enjoyed the view over the lagoon very much, as well as Kevin's lovely breakfast. It's in a very nice area, yet one would need a car to get to e.g. the beach or Eden adventures, which we did not have, but luckily Kevin was very nice and gave us...

We are so pleased that you enjoyed our lovely views!! We are happy to tell you that Wilderness now has a shuttle service to get to restaurants so that you can have a drink and you dont need to drive, and a new taxi service.
