Phoenix Guest House - Wilderness
Ranked #32 of 60 Wilderness B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 February 2016

We stayed in the best room in the house - the white room. It had everything you could ask for and more, with to die for views of the lagoon, beach and sea. Peter was an excellent and generous host and it was like being a house guest at a friend's house. Nothing was too much trouble for Peter and we felt welcome at all times. Breakfast was delicious and everything was beautifully presented. We can't recommend Phoenix Guest House highly enough.

Ah, thank you Jane, and what a surprise to get such a prompt review from you.... you only left a couple of days ago. Hard to believe that you are already half way round the world again! It was an absolute delight to meet you both and I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with me. Good luck with your house hunting, I hope you find a wonderful place very soon. All good things, Peter

This place is just amazing: not only the very stylish, yet comfy house, that Peter shares with his guests (but you have privacy all the time!), but Peter makes it all: outstanding hospitality, gourmet breakfast are only parts of a just perfect stay there, thanks again!

What a find!!
Phoenix is a wonderful relaxing place to stay, the views from all over the house are just breathtaking. We stayed in the White Room which is the best room in the house, with a view of the entire Wilderness Bay. The room is so lovely you will notwant to go out - it has everything to make your stay perfect.
But Peter is the key that makes it so special & home from home, a fantastic host, wonderful breakfast on the terrace & special touches to make it perfect.
My wife loves comfort & understated luxury & Phoenix has it all
Thank you Peter

There really is no way of doing this place justice in a review. It was impeccable beyond description. From start to finish my wife, my brother and I had the most incredible stay. Each of us have very different needs and somehow the Peter and the Phoenix guest house met all so easily. My wife : a need for absolute luxury, privacy and impeccable taste. My brother a need for a natural, easy going atmosphere with incredible nature. And then there is Peter the host: graceful and warm, informative but not invasive, and most importantly - genuinely hospitable. When all the restaurants on the 1st of January were closed, Peter simply smiled and said - "my home is your home - feel free to help yourself to the fridge and pantry for dinner"- despite the fact that only breakfast was included.

Peter, you gave us 3 of the best days of holiday and you deserve all the business you can handle :)

Best wishes.

Room Tip: White room is incredible! All rooms

Thank you Gur for your very touching report. Every now and then people cross your path in life who are really special and I am glad that it was you and your family. It was an absolute joy for me to host you, your beautiful wife and beautiful brother for the days that you spent with me. The fact that Nimrod was happy and comfortable to sleep on the couch in the sitting room was really awesome, especially as he was right there while I was putting together breakfast at some ungodly hour. Opening my home to you was absolutely my pleasure and I am also very excited for your new 'addition' due in 2016... congratulations. I am so thrilled for you both .......I hope you will keep me posted > Peter
