Very nicely decorated room, super comfy bed and warm blankets. Excellent breakfast in a beautiful breakfast room. The location is unbeatable, 60 stairs to the beach. Nice lounge and open fireplace in the evening. Wilna is a very friendly and helpful host!

This is one of the top Guest Houses that I have stayed in! 60 steps from one of the most beautiful beaches in South Africa. Very homely atmosphere, with everything you could possibly need in the rooms. Very nice location too, near the very viby area of Wilderness Village. I will definitely go there again.

Wilna and Hendrik the hosts definitely went the extra mile. From the very accommodating warm welcome to the fresh cut fruit platters and quality coffee at breakfast. The bacon was the best ! The rooms were safe, comfy and spotless.

And we saw a pod of dolphins! The rooms and common area were lovely and comfortable, and breakfast was delicious, with amazing views. Wilna was a...

We spent a night here while doing the "Garden Route". Had I known just how impressive The Dune Lodge is, we'd have stayed for a week. Friendly staff, exceptionally clean and well-appointed accommodations, perfect location, and a first class breakfast combined to make our stay a memorable experience.

A very comfortable stay in a good location in Wilderness. The room was large and comfortable and we had a sea view. Hearing the waves crashing on the beach in the morning was a highlight! A good breakfast and excellent service.
