Heaven on Earth
The perfect place to relax and watch the wildlife make its way across the valley and into the rivers and lakes. Greta is an incredible hostess and they have created a special experience raised above the valley. We were their during a full moon and we just sat on the balcony posed above the valley and watched the movement of the moon and stars for hours; a truly magical experience. Next time we are staying for much longer.
Dawn & Brendan Furey - Mallorca, Spain ı February 2019
Nothing much to add to the excellent reviews. The best is just sitting on the veranda and looking out into the peaceful nature, walking on the beach, hiking to the waterfall, don‘t forget your swimming trunks. Very friendly, gracious host! To be repeated.
Karel & Lucia Kraan, Emmen - Switzerland ı February 2019
Unique stilted house with spectacular views
Lifted above the quiet lane, you have an incredible viewpoint over the Wilderness Valley. Much wildlife can viewed and the full moon over the valley was magical!!! Greta is a super fantastic hostess and nothing was too much trouble. Our next visit will be for much longer; I could spend days sitting on the balcony and gazing out at natures beautiful creation.
Nicole Jacobs & Clement - Capetown ı February 2019
Greta's garden flat was perfect for our stay in Wilderness. It is well located, it has a great view and a FANTASTIC garden. Greta welcomed us, gave us local tips and had placed bottled water and fresh milk in the fridge. Nice. Can't recommend this garden flat enough.
Mark & Carlos, Lagrasse, France ı February 2019
2 wunderschöne Tage in Wilderness mit einer schönen Unterkunft.
Eine Lodge in der Natur und trotzdem in der Nähe der N2. Sie hat alles, was man braucht. Ruhig, ansprechend eingerichtet, gut ausgestattet. Sauber, schönes Bad, Wifi, tolle Aussicht.
Hans-Jürgen & Manuela Donner, Berlin, DE ı February 2019
Lovely peaceful setting, splendid view
Greta and Roger gave us a very warm welcome in a beautiful well equiped cottage. They are very friendly hosts and are very comités to make your stay a great success. The cottage offers a beautiful terrace with a magical view over a nature reserve towards Outeniqua mountains. The cottage offers a small kitchen with an electric cooking plate, a dining table for two, two comfortable armchairs, tv set with DStv, a very comfortable kingsize bed and sufficient cupboard space. Large bathroom with super shower. Toilet in bathroom. Good ventilation in bathroom due to two windows. All in all an excellent place to stay for a longer period. We stayed for two weeks and enjoyed every moment of it. Highly recommend.
Peter & Eveline Meijer, Hilversum - Nederland, ı February 2019
We stayed in the Sunbird Cottage; spacious enough for two, nice terrace and a great view. Beautiful new bathroom, comfortable bed and the kitchen has everything you need to organize a meal. You can even use a small Weber for a braai. Greta is a great host, warm and welcoming! We loved the place and there’s enough to do in and around Wilderness for a longer stay. The price is also very reasonable compared to other accommodations in Wilderness.
Gea Ott - Texel - Nederland, ı January 2019
This is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed.
We were guests for 6 nights in the lovely Kingfisher chalet. The chalet is surrounded by lush gardens and vines. It appears to be floating in the air. There is complete privacy from the other 2 chalets. There is no clutter just 4 magnificent pieces of African Art. There is a delightful shower with great pressure, air con if you need it and the wifi is excellent. The view from the terrace over the marsh, the river and the lake is so peaceful. We ate most meals here and every breakfast. The bed is very comfortable with beautiful linens. Wilderness is a perfect destination with lots to do and great places to eat. Do not miss the Sedgefield market on a Saturday morning. To top it all off there is Greta- hostess extraordinaire.
Janet Hamilton-Davies, Toronto - Canada, ı January 2019
Fantastische en idyllische plek
Greta is een lieve betrokken gastvrouw die je zeer hartelijk verwelkomt. De appartementen zijn zeer luxe, comfortabel en compleet ingericht. De bedden zijn top. De keuken compleet en de badkamer is prachtig. Het is een heerlijk rustige plek. Het uitzicht en de omgeving zijn fantastisch! Wilderness is top! En als je van plan bent om daar een paar nachten te verblijven zou ik zeker en vast bij Justfor2 boeken!
Karin Stoopendaal & Lotte - Gouda, Nederland ı January 2019
Wonderful place to stay
Fantastic place to stay for a get away, whether just overnight, for a weekend or even a week. Facilities are fantastic, host is very, very helpful and friendly. Location is just stunning. I could only give this place ten out of ten.
Iris & Alice1966 - Capetown - South Africa ı January 2019
It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
I felt at peace and one with the natural surroundings! What's more, our hosts were amazing and kind! The Sunbird cottage is perfect for 2 people and therefore the place is aptly named Just For 2! Eveyrthing is clean, neat and tidy! We had a breakdown 25kms outside George and they were kind enough to help us look for a towing company to assist us. Furthermore they offered to take us shopping as we had to extend our stay in order to have our car fixed. Will definitely come back here and recommend the place! We do need to do some exploring though as we were stranded and could not go anywhere.
Nadia and Dawood Anderson, Capetown ı January 2019
beautiful, cozy and super quiet place, perfect for a relaxing trip. tidy, comfortable and private. very easy to reach it and the owner (greta) is super friendly. the views from the porch and windows are simply amazing. you can hear the sound of the wind on the leaves. i had great sleeping nights there.
Aloísio Ximenes, Bresil, ı January 2019
We will be back for a 3rd visit
2nd great stay at sunbird cottage. A great space to relax and enjoy the views and tranquility. The cottage is well equipped and has excellent WiFi and TV with many channels for any rainy days. The bed is very comfortable and the new bathroom is a added bonus. The beach at wilderness is long and deserted and there are plenty of places to eat and drink
Andrew & Jackie, UK ı December 2018
Best view ever
Amazing cottage with everything you need and more. The view is wonderful magical. The host was incredibly helpful especially as we had booked the accommodation an hour before arriving. We would recommend a stop here of more than one night.
Marion & Bob Atkinson - Pretoria, South Africa ı December 2018
Feels like home
From the first contact (very fast reply) until we've left Greta and Roger, we felt we are Friends. The SunBirdCottage is a hidden treasure at the Garden route and we strongly recomend to spend min. 3 nights there. The breakfast with the wonderfull view (we saw bush bucks and colorfull birds) was a great experience we will never forget. We hope we will be able to come back. All the best to Greta and Roger and good luck for the future!
Matthias & Hannelore Haller - Frankfurt, Germany ı December 2018
“Thank you for having us!
“We've been in Wilderness for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay at Greta's accomodation. The view is beautiful and you're in a quiet natural setting where you can watch birds and listen to the frogs concert. The cottage was clean and well equipped so that we could make breakfast on our own. Greta is a wonderful host and gave us nice tipps for the area. 100 % recommendation for those who prefer silence and nature.”
Katharina & Stefan Hader, Munich - Germany ı December 2018
The stay was amazing!
The cottage is beautiful, clean, fully equipped! Greta is an amazingly lovely host to have! Very helpful and she took care of every need! The surrounding of the place is peaceful and quiet! Perfect for a rest and for doing activities around!
Katrin & Pedro Dolle - Mannheim, Germany ı December 2018
I can highly recommend the Kingfisher cottage to everyone, who wants to have some nice days in Wilderness. The cottage and view from the patio (like a lookout on safari ;-)) is outstanding and the location is close to the beaches and you´re by car within minutes in Wilderness, Sedgefield or George. Greta is a very kind host and will support you to any question, you will have. Super nice stay!!!!
We´ll come back on our next vacation in ZA.
Helmut & Alexandra Buchheimer - Munchen ı November 2018
We enjoyed our stay in Wilderness at Greta’s place so very much! Greta is a warm and welcoming host, and the cottage is in a superbly picturesque and relaxing part of Wilderness. Everything was absolutely perfect, and I can’t recommend highly enough!
Thanks Greta, we loved Wilderness and your gorgeous cottage!
Adrienne McGhie - London, UK ı November 2018
Quelques jours dans l'eden Wilderness
C'est un endroit tranquille, silencieux, discret, plein d'oiseaux viennent déjeuner en même temps que vous ..
Greta est très disponible, discrète, pleine de bons conseils, c'est un vrai plaisir et bonheur d'avoir partager ces qques jours. Merci.
Je n'avais pas compris qu'il n'y avait pas d'évier dans la kitchenette, mais Greta se charge de la vaisselle.
Edith Feltrin - Bordeaux, France ı October 2018
The place is lovely, in very good condition and clean. Our host was super nice and gave great advices on restaurants and local market. I’d really recommend it!
Nathalie & Julian Laye - London, UK ı October 2018
Eine nette Unterkunft mit tollen Ausblick
Modern eingerichtete, sehr sympathische Unterkunft in toller Lage. Eine sehr nette, offene und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Großzügiger Wohnbereich, sauberes Bad mit toller Dusche. Eine Veranda, an der man Abends mit einem Glas Wein in die Natur schauen kann.
Philipp Seeliger, München ı October 2018
Waking up with a view and the sound off birds. Room is big very luxury and clean, nice big bed. Verry nice friendly host. Area is perfect for relax in nature. Walking distance from the lakes.
We will recommend this to others.
Bruno & Christel - Schille, Belgium ı October 2018
We will be back!
Lovely, peaceful, relaxed place to stay.
Location, comfort, easy access, facilities. Everything basically:)
There was nothing I did not like
Iris & Deryck Sheriffs, Capetown ı October 2018
Extremely accommodating even on short notice
Our travel plans took an unexpected turn and we found ourselves in Wilderness without accommodation. We found JustFor2 online and it looked lovely. We called Greta and she was extremely accommodating and welcoming, agreeing to host us on such short notice. When we arrived we were taken away by how beautiful the property is, with its flourishing garden and gorgeous view of the lake. It is truly a serene setting! The apartment had everything we needed for the night and was tastefully furnished. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed a deep night’s sleep. Perfect setting, wonderful hospitality and relaxed atmosphere - this is the ideal little getaway for two. Thank you Greta for your warmth and hospitality!
Katja Schreiber - Norway ı October 2018
We liked the location and the accommodation itself. It was quiet and enough space for two. Lovely place!
Jonas Frey - Zurich, Zwitserland ı October 2018
We stayed at Justfor2 in Wilderness for the long weekend in September and we just loved it. We felt very relaxed and at ease and loved spending time just watching the birds from the balcony. We wished we could stay in Wilderness forever.
Esté & Duanne Chambers - Port Elisabeth - September 2018
Beslis die beste honeymoon ooit en sal weer in die toekoms daar wil vakansie hou!
Eienaars Greta en Roger is verskriklik gasvry en baie behulpsaam. Hul gaanEienaarstra myl. Die area bied die rustigste atmosfeer en mooiste uitsigte, net wat mens benodig om luuks te ontspan. Baie netjiese, skoon plekkie. Sal dit definitief vir enige iemand aanbeveel om 'n vakansie daar deur te bring as jy wil wegkom van die stadslewe. Daar kan jy lekker rus en behoorlik ontspan.
Emil Husselman - Capetown, ı September 2018
We loved staying at Justfor2 this past weekend. Greta is very friendly and made us feel right at home. The views are stunning and everything is just so peaceful. We just loved watching the birds from the balcony.
Esté Van der Merwe - Port Elizabeth ı September 2018
Most comfortable hotel bed in forever!
The bed in our self-catering apartment at JustFor2 was by far the most comfortable bed of all on roadtrip through South Africa. An enormous king sized bed with a mattress that gently caressed you as you laid down was just what we needed after a day on the road.
The hostess Greta offered a lovely chat and accommodated all our questions. The small kitchen provides anything that could be needed for a simple meal or breakfast. The bathroom was clean and freshly renovated with the only negative aspect that it takes several minutes for the water to get warm. Less ideal in the drought running through South Africa. The pictures online gave us the impression that we would be somewhat further away from other buildings, but instead the houses are tucked in between other houses. However, the lovely little garden/patio outside provides the peaceful illusion of isolation. Perfect for a late evening beer. Naturally it is a bit of any 'centre' or beach so you definitely need a car to get there.
Maria Hedblom - Sweden/Capetown ı September 2018
JustFor2 bied 'n skilderagtige uitsig en die eienaars is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Die huisie is baie slim ingerig.
Cecil-Jo Swart, Capetown ı September 2018
Definitely recommend JustFor2
Thank you very much Greta for all the effort you put in on making this one amazing weekend. One would have to search far and wide to find this type of hospitality and friendliness. I would definitely recommend you to anybody.
Gerrit Oosthuizen - Stellenbosch, South Africa ı September 2018
The stay here was nothing short of whimsical. Just as we had pictured it. It was cozy quiet and scenic. Greta and her husband were just fantastic hosts all round, very welcoming and kept the cottage in pish posh condition. I especially love the little touches added to make the space unique. Definitely worth the stay when visiting Wilderness!
Riddy - Johannesburg ı August 2018
Dit was heerlik, sal beslis weer teruggaan.
Die beste plek wat jy kan kies, omgewing is perfek. Ek en my man het onsself geniet. Greta en Roger is baie vriendelike mense, en hulle kyk mooi na hulle gaste. Baie dankie, sal weer vir julle sien.
Masodi Selepe - Bloemfontein ı August 2018
Dit was voorwaar waarde vir geld
Greta was 'n wonderlike gasvrou. Alles was mooi skoon en netjies. Die uitsig was fantasties. Ons het baie lekker gebly en sal beslis weer daar tuisgaan.
Mia von Straaten - TG - Johannesburg ı August 2018
JustFor2 a great place to stay
We can highly recommend JustFor2 Loerie cottage for any stay-over or holiday. It has a truly spectacular and extraordinarily peaceful setting, great north-facing views, and the cottage is immaculately furnished with taste and quality that surpasses most self-catering places we have stayed in. Spacious lay-out, quality finishes, surprising lighting options and bathroom, and well-equipped, the cottage shows that the owners, Greta & Roger have put in extra effort and care for their guests comfort. We will be back, for sure.
Tiaan & Lorraine le Roux, Simonstown - Cpt ı June 2018
“This is a really lovely cottage, just for two, with gorgeous views. The location means that the bird life is plentiful and there is always something to look at. Don't forget to take your binoculars! Some wonderful walks in the area and easy access to the rest of the Garden Route. If you are there on a Saturday, don't miss the market.”
Mike & Mimi, Greyton - South Africa ı May 2018
Aandacht maakt alles beter
Wij hebben op 10 plekken in zuid-afrika geslapen, van oost tot west. Just for 2 was de beste plek. Greta zorgt ervoor dat alles voor je geregeld is. Ze heeft oog voor detail en dat maakt het aangenaam.
Jan Labrie, NL ı May 2018
Bliss couples getaway in The Wilderness
JustFor2 is the perfect getaway for couples who want to spend some romantic time together. The place is very easy to find and the location is spectacular. The room is everything that is needed; bed is comfortable and clean; kitchen has all the necessary utensils and even complimentary condiments and breakfast goods; TV and WiFi satisfactory; balcony overlooking the lake is tranquil - with all day sun and exotic sounds; and the bathroom is possibly the best of out of the lot. Greta and Roger are the most wonderful people and gracious hosts. Very friendly and full of useful tips about the area. They provide a complimentary weber braai which is more than handy, but the two complimentary bicycles that can be used to explore the town is by far the cherry on this very delicious cake :) Would recommend this place to any young and vibrant couple.
Shuabe & Jane, Capetown - South Africa ı May 2018
This accommodation is amazing! It looked exactly like on the pictures online. The view was beautiful and it was great sitting on the terrace and watching the birds and enjoying how quite it was (except the sound of the animals :). The bed was also very comfortable and the equipment of the cottage was also great. There was even salt, pepper, olive oil, vinegar etc. and 2 plates for cooking. Greta was lovely as well - as we parked she came to welcomed us, showed us around and was free to answer all the questions. We can definitely recommend the pizza which Greta suggested. So all in all a perfect stay!
Claudia & Niklas, Mettingen - Deutschland ı April 2018
An absolutely blissful couples getaway.
Private and uninterrupted, yet Greta and Roger were always on hand when needed, and the most amazing hosts at that.
The complimentary bikes were awesome; the sounds of wildlife among the reeds; and the location itself makes you not want to be anywhere else :)
Shuabe Jacobs, Capetown - South Africa ı April 2018
Very nice stay
We had a very nice stay at this excellent selfcatering cottage.The view over the lake and the sounds of birds was worth it. Greta is very hospitable hostess and she made sure by prompt emails and messages that we receive directions to the cottages. Highly recommended.
Stephan Engelbrecht - Cape Town ı April 2018
Couple review from two hippies
When we arrived at the property we instantly fell in love with the location. The wooden houses are on the mountain face looking down on a big beautiful wetland. We fell in love with the biodiversity in the area of frogs and birds that sung the most beautiful songs and made the most interesting noises. We were able to escape the madness of the city and really be in a tranquil place that made us feel at home away from home. The guesthouse itself was cozy, comfortable, equipped with all of the basic necessities, private and secluded.
It was nice to not be able to see any humans unless we wanted to. We had a lovely and comfortable stay. I would suggest this place to anyone!
Arka & Louis, Jeffreys bay ı April 2018
Dit was 'n ongelooflike ervaring gewees!
Greta is wonderlik en het ons dadelik laat welkom voel. Ons gaan definitief terug wees.
Baie dankie aan Greta. Sy is 'n wonderlike gasvrou. Die plekkie was netjies en skoon toe ons daar aankom. Pragtige uitsig, veilig en perfek om weg te kom van die stad se geraas en net te ontspan!
Andrea & Jaycee - Kaapstad ı March 2018
We had a fantastic 2 days in the kingfisher lodge. It was a perfect size for 2 of us with a handy kitchen area and a stunning balcony - that view! We loved watching the flocks of egrets landing in the evening and listening to the crickets! Would definitely recommend to others.
Tim & Kirsten Fowler, UK ı March 2018
Just 2 perfect!
A beautiful, quiet, located self catering lodge in Wilderness composed of 4 separate units. 3 larger units with splendid views, especially the Kingfisher and Lourie and 1 smaller, located at ground level in the main house of the owners Greta and Roger, wonderful and friendly people. Keep in mind to have these splendid views, one needs to climb up at least 30 steps, as mentioned on the website, but the effort is worth every step... The nicely designed units are large, comfortable kingsize beds, kitchenette, large bathroom, no bathtub but nice large shower area and a large patio with table, chairs and sunbeds to enjoy the view. Since this is a self catering lodge, one needs to provide for own breakfast. On request, possibility to have a bbq installed on the patio. Good service with regular cleaning, change of bed linnen and towels. Parking area just next to the steps of the units. Internet and international tv channels. Very safe area from which one can explore many touristic attractions, check website. 5 minutes drive from the Wilderness centre with plenty of dining (breakfast) possibilities if one doesn’t want to cater for oneself. But a bbq from the highest deck with that view is definitely a recommendation. Hospitality is a key word at this location where additionally different major European languages are spoken.
Peter & Sabrina Bals, Brustem - België, ı March 2018
Great place to stay with beautiful view
Studio with modern and cosy design in a "stand alone wooden house" with stunning views over the lagoon valley, nice terrace, calm and relaxing - all in all a great place to stay. Many thanks to our host Greta!
Heike & Robert Adams, Holzkirchen - D, ı March 2018
Lovely accommodation in a wonderful location.
Greta was a great host with helpful suggestions about the area, restaurants etc. The wildlife on view from the balcony, especially the birds, were stunning. Only wish we could have stayed longer!
Philippa Williams, Oxford - UK, ı March 2018
Wir haben zwei Nächte im Apartment im EG von Gretas Häusern übernachtet. Die Lage ist ganz toll, es ist sehr ruhig und total friedlich. Wir haben uns sehr Wohlgefühlt und uns selbst verpflegt. Das hat wunderbar geklappt. Das Geschirrabwaschen wurde netterweise direkt von Greta übernommen.
Ann-Christin Nina & Matthias Klinger, Hamburg - D ı March 2018
Bitte noch einmal
Falls wir noch einmal Süd Afrika besuchen sollten, werden wir wieder dort wohnen wollen.
Sehr freundliche Gastgeber, eine großzügige Ausstattung der Unterkunft, sehr schöne Ausblicke in die Natur ringsherum. Besonders die Terasse mit der Überdachung ist optimal. Wir haben uns von Anfang an sehr wohl gefühlt. Auch das die Gastgeber ausgezeichnet deutsch sprechen, war sehr positiv.
Jochen und Waltraut Bittner, Brake - Deutschland ı March 2018
If you love nature, wildlife and a bit of privacy Greta’s cottage is for you. Amazing views from the bedroom and the deck. The cottage has everything you need and is a short drive to the main town of Wilderness. Greta herself was very easy to communicate with, friendly and provided great tips on the area. Couldn’t recommend more highly!
Thanks again for your tips and for having us at Kingfisher Cottage - hands down the best Airbnb we have ever stayed in!
Susie & Michael, Edinburgh - Scotland, ı March 2018
Immersed in nature
We had the apartment and a very nice and tranquil view from the terrace through the lush little garden and over the large reed area that starts just across the way. We very much liked the sounds coming out from the reed and especially the little frogs that start peeping when it gets dark. One of the B&Bs we liked most on our Garden Route tour where we have stayed at more than 15.
Dieter & Eva , Isen - Deutschland ı February 2018
Super netter Empfang. Großes , sehr sauberes Apartment. Grosses Bad. Tolle Aussicht!!!! Ruhig gelegen mit netten Restaurants in der Nähe. Greta ist sehr hilfsbereit und hat gute Tipps. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder.
Johann & Birgit Breuer - Deutschand ı February 2018
The very best of Wilderness
We have stayed several times with Greta and roger and would not consider anywhere else in Wilderness. It has everything. Beautiful views, easy access to beach and restaurants, lots of bird life and perfect, perfect peace. And of course the accommodation is very comfortable.
Keith & Jan MacKenney, England ı February 2018
Absolute Wohlfühloase, wir kommen gerne wieder
Es ist eine absolute Traumunterkunft mit sehr luxuriöser Einrichtung und sehr nettem Gastgeber. Wahnsinnig schöne Aussicht auf den Flusslauf, ruhiger Lage, großer Balkon, viele Ausflugsmöglichkeiten, Natur pur, mehrere Tage Aufenthalt sind zu empfehlen.
Patrick Boehmler, Böblingen - Deutschland ı February 2018
Baie mooi uitgelê, modern en alles is daar.
Uitsig fantasties en eienaars baie hulpsaam en vriendelik.
Sonja Grunbauer - Somerset Wes, Suid Afrika ı February 2018
Unser perfekter Ort - Dank an Greta
Greta ist so eine herzliche Gastgeberin, Wohnung ist gut ausgestattet und gemütlich, tolles Bad, schöner Garten, von der Terrasse konnte man die Springböcke im Feld beobachten, süße Katze, himmliche Ruhe (nur die Grillen).
Susanne Galla - Germany ı February 2018
Wunderschönes Cottage am Hang
Die 45 Stufen werden vom Interieur und der traumhaften Aussicht mehr als weg gemacht. Greta ist eine herzliche Gastgeberin. Wir haben uns pudelwohl gefühlt und können das Lorie uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. LG an unsere Gastgeber.
Barbara & Wolfgang Huth, Erfurt - Germany ı February 2018
Most serene and beautiful setting, the place is well built with modern amenities. The owners are very friendly and you basically are on your own once you have checked in. So if you are looking for some quiet time this is the ideal place for 2.
Khalid Shamsi - Capetown ı January 2018
Great place to relax
What an amazing view in such a peaceful setting - a great place to relax with a glass or two overlooking the vista. Beach just 5 mins drive, go to Beejuice for chilled beach vibe for brunch - the Timberlake shopping area is 10 mins towards Knysna and has fabulous coffee roastery with gorgeous cake, eco type place for a wander about. We were lazy after hacking around so it was great for that, but for adrenaline junkies there was plenty to do. Greta is lovely and the best combo of informative and helpful, but not obtrusive either - thanks for the great stay; you were right the Karoo is hot; heading off to Bufflesdrift now - thanks for the tip!
Jane Riley, Embleton - UK ı January 2018
“This is one of the best Airbnbs we have stayed in, across Europe, the US and Africa. We would definitely recommend it to anyone staying anywhere near either Wilderness or Knysna (they’re really close to each other). Greta has designed a great layout and she’s also a very attentive host.”
Nicola Fleet-Milne & Joe Horton, Birmingham ı January 2018
"Great view of the lake"
We stayed in Sunbird cottage which is the smallest of the cottages but still has plenty of space and is well equipped for a holiday stay, the only minor downside is the small bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and had quality linen. The porch is a great space to sit and chill or eat with lovely views over the lake. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and gave us some good tips on places to go and local restaurants. The cottage is located on the opposite side of the road from the beach and therefore much quieter than being by the beach and was a lovely relaxing escape from it all place to stay over Christmas. All of the cottages have quite a few stairs to climb but well worth it to get the view. We would definitely return when we re-visit wildernes, thanks for a great stay.
Jackie & Andrew, UK ı January 2018
Baie lekker gebly en sal dit vir enige persoon aanbeveel.
Baie lekker rustige omgewing. Eenheid skoon, netjies en het aan al ons behoeftes voldoen. Eienares baie vriendelik en het ons baie tuis laat voel. Ons sal beslis weer daar wou tuisgaan.
Martin Landmann, Vrystaat - South Africa, ı January 2018
We would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a rural setting. Just beauty.
Beautiful location and wonderful host.
Glorianne & Queenie, Toronto - Canada ı January 2018
“We loved our stay in the Sunbird Cottage.
The area is super peaceful, but a nice central base to explore the Garden Route. Greta is an amazing host. She communicated quick and efficiently, provided a file with local tips, offered to make restaurant reservations and accommodated a late check in. The unit is quite small, but has everything you would expect/need. We had A LOT of stuff after 2 weeks' travel, but there was enough space to pack everything away.”
Roeline Daneel & Werner Lotz, Capetown ı January 2018
Greta was so helpful, she was the perfect host. Me and my partner were doing the garden route so we had stayed in many places. This one by far was the best! Clean, modern, amazing views. Just perfect.
Emily & Richard, London - UK ı December 2017
We'll definitely come back!!
Beautiful cosy cottage with amazing view from the wooden deck...very private and quiet. Lots of little touches made staying here a very special experience!
Jeanine Andro, Somerset - RSA ı December 2017
The house is located in a very quiet and lovely neighbourhood. It is overlooking the Grassland of the national park and one can watch the rare birds like black bishops, cranes etc. the whole day. This makes the stay a fantastic and unique experience! Also the house is very clean and stylish (the rain shower is wonderful!) with everything as described or even better. Our host Greta was very friendly and communicative, she is always there when needed but left us enough space as well. Just perfect! Worth mentioning is the fact, that during our one week stay we got fresh sheets and towels after some days and the house has been looked after daily! All in all we can highly recommend not only exploring the Garden Route from the lovely village Wilderness, but also staying at JustFor2 for the perfect experience! We will recommend this place to all our friends and hope to come back soon!!”
Boris - Xiaomeng Stähly, Bonn - Deutschland ı December 2017
Alles war toll
Sehr schöne, saubere und super ausgestattete Appartments. Ruhige Lage direkt am Wilderness National Park. Sehr freundliche, unkomplizierte und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin.
Oliver Opitz - Deutschland, ı November 2017
Ein unvergessenen Aufenthalt.

Fantastische ligging, prachtig uitzicht, heerlijk wandelen, grote en ruime cottage en mooi ingericht. Zeer vriendelijke eigenaars en warme ontvangst.
Erik & Eva, Rotterdam, Nederland ı November 2017
Stunning view from our balcony, unbelievable nature surrounding Greta´s lovely place!
We felt so comfortable in Greta´s extraordinary place - all very well arranged and equiped way over average! Hopefully everyone will handle this beautiful place respectful while staying there so it won´t lose it´s beauty too soon! We had such a great time and enjoyed the lovely beach, great nature and super friendly people there. Greta is a very warmhearted host and she helped us with restaurant reservations as well as recommendations for "see+do´s" nearby. We hope to come back soon with much more time there to spend. Thanks again for everything, Greta!

Alles hat mir gefallen
George & Anne-Marie Brabetz, Switzerland ı November 2017
Traumhafte Unterkunft in einer tollen Lage
Von dieser sehr geschmackvoll eingrichteten Unterkunft, waren wir begeistert. Wir hatten das Häusschen auf Stelzen gemietet und wollten eigentlich gar nicht mehr weg. Wir haben hier ausgezeichnet geschlafen und genossen nicht nur das traumhafte Badambiente, sondern auch die tolle Terrasse. In der ruhigen Wohngegend hört man die vielen Vögel zwitschern, die im angrenzenden Schilfgebiet brüten und hin und her fliegen. Die Unterkunft würde sich auch exzellent für einen längeren Aufenthalt eigenen. Schade, dass wir nach zwei Nächten schon wieder weiter reisen mussten.
Sabine & Jörg Hillenbrand, Deutschland ı November 2017
Alles sehr neu und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Nähe zum Strand und zu Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Sehr ruhig gelegen mit herrlichem Blick über das Schilf zu den Bergen. Greta hat uns herzlich empfangen, wertvolle Tipps gegeben und war immer gut erreichbar. Schade, dass wir aus diesem kleinen Paradies wieder abreisen mussten.
Bernhard & Heidi Hoffman, Deutschland ı November 2017
Special & wonderful accommodation in the nature of Wilderness
The apartment is brand new and a dream location for couples! Everything is furnited with taste and you have a wonderwul view to the mountains. Additionally Greta is a really friendly and helpful host! We would definitely recommend Justfor2, it was the best apartment we stayed at during our three weeks of holiday in South Africa!
The wifi was a little slow, but everything else was just perfect!
Sina Schmidt & Lars Holz, Germany ı November 2017
"Exactly what we hoped for! "
After a tiring dash through Botswana and Namibia, we were looking for down time, somewhere to just relax and think about our adventures. Sunbird cottage was perfect, comfortable and quiet. It was a joy to sit up in bed with the curtains open to enjoy the view. It was warm enough to eat outside and watch the birds coming and going. It was great that there was some olive oil in the cottage so very basic catering was possible. The shops are a short drive away and could supply all our catering needs. It was a welcome change to self cater, simple and delicious food, lots of wine in a perfect setting. From the cottage lots of great walks are easily accessible, and we enjoyed the one up to the waterfall. The beach looks wonderful as well. Wish we had stayed longer!

What a great host
Greta was such an amazing host! She gave us all the tips we needed to make it a great trip. We stayed there for two nights and it was a perfect every single minute in Wilderness. The flat itself was clean, organized and well decorated. The kitchen had all utensils i needed to cook us breakfast- and Greta took care of the dishes. Theres this grocery shop 4k away where you can buy everything you need. We wish we had more time to hang out wish Greta and her husband. 10 out of 10!
Bruno & Tai, Sao Paolo - Brazil ı November 2017
We have had a really cosy and enjoyable stay at Justfor2.
The views are very special and we loved feeling tucked away. Although just a short drive to the beach and other local things to do. A perfect place to stay in Wilderness.
Thank you for your warm hospitality Greta.

Aufwachen mit Blick in die Landschaft - ein Traum
Super Unterkunft mit tollem Blick direkt vom Bett aus. Die Hütte ist sehr neuwertig und gepflegt. Jeden Tag kam eine nette Dame und hat alles in Ordnung gebracht. Mit der Ausstattung hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Das Frühstück auf der Terrasse war traumhaft. Der Kontakt mit der Vermieterin war sehr freundlich und unkompliziert.

Maddy & Matt, London - UK ı October 2017
Some older reviews we couldn't throw away :-)
"Beautiful views of the lush fields by the lakeside"
Great and hospitable host! Most comfortable stay in an "all you need" cottage. Quiet area with easy access to town. Stunning views over the lake with a lot of bird life around! Will definitely be back
Marike Marais - Capetown, South Africa ı September 2017
We had a great time staying at JustFor2 in Wilderness. The place was very comfortable, clean and had an incredible view.
It was also an easy drive to restaurants and other attractions. Highly recommend a stop in Wilderness and staying in one of Greta’s chalets!

Have to go there, everything is perfect. Excellent host, very helpful. Beautiful surroundings.
Joep & Antoinette van den Dikkenberg, NL ı September 2017
Super accommodation. Lovely setting by the lake. Atmospheric with the frogs singing. Host most helpful and hospitable. Gave good tips on restraunts. Provided a braai and means to dry some laundry. I would recommend this accommodation to a friend.
Thomas Johnson, UK ı September 2017
Cozy accommodation in beautiful surroundings
Our room had a wonderful view over the reed beds of the adjacent park. The birds at the feeders right outside our room gave us plenty of entertainment. Our host, Roger and Greta provided many tips on things to do in the area. They were very knowledgeable regarding the many different flowers and trees on the property.
Eric and Ruth Wigg, Florida - USA ı September 2017
Greta was an absolutely fantastic hostess! She was waiting for us when we arrived and made sure we were comfortable with everything and also advised us where to eat. We spent the most relaxing week here and was able to unwind from the stress of work! We will definitely be back!
John & Carrol Stephens, Somerset - RSA ı August 2017
Amazing place, perfect getaway for couples
Quiet, relaxing and romantic it has it all.

Peaceful location with great views
Great location if you are driving, very close to the national park and beach and lovely scenic view from the balcony. The room was very comfortable with great kitchen facilities. Greta was very welcoming and helpful with restaurant recommendations.
Amanda & Dan Haggan, UK ı June 2017
Fantastic get away with a terrific view
The property is very private and situated in a quiet location overlooking the nature reserve and Serpentine River, yet close to the town, shops & facilities. We thoroughly enjoyed the stunning view and were amazed at the many flocks of egrets that fly past each daybreak and sunset! Greta, the hostess is fabulous and gave us many tips on good places to visit, eat at and activities in the area. After our day outings, we always came back to a super clean cottage with fresh dry towels etc. I highly recommend this property for a great relaxing get away from city life!
Angie Mammone - Capetown ı May 2017
This is really one of my favorite places I have ever stayed at, it has everything you need and more. It is really such a special place and Greta is an amazing host. I will definitely be back as soon as I can and I highly recommend it.
Zander Tyler (Jack Parow), Capetown ı May 2017
PS: Jack Parow wrote his most recent album at JustFor2
Das kleine Haus hat eine großartige Aussicht in die Natur. Es eignet sich sehr gut, um die Ruhe zu genießen. Die Ausstattung und das Haus sind neu und sehr gepflegt. Der Strand ist nicht weit entfernt. Andere Ziele der Garden Route lassen sich gut erreichen. Greta ist sehr hilfsbereit. Sie reagiert schnell auf alle Anfragen. Ein Ort, an dem es sich sehr gut Urlaub machen lässt.
Christian & Ingrid Bartholl, Hamburg - Deutschland ı May 2017
Small hideaway and paradise
Perfect locations and views. Very clean. Warm and hospitable hosts.
Dikeledi Mosime, Capetown ı April 2017
Little Gem in the Wilderness
Lovely location with beautiful views. We stayed in the Sunbird Cottage on the first floor. The Cottage was very comfortable and we lacked nothing. Gretha was a warm and welcoming hostess and was very attentive. As a Tour Operator, I would highly recommend Just for 2. It is close to amenities and the beach. Will definitely go back.
Cyle, Diplomatic Tours - Noordwest, SA ı April 2017
"The place to be""
The Kingfisher cottage is located in a peaceful environment, with a very nice view. The owners Roger and Greta are extremely nice and helpful. Our brand new cottage has all the comfort. From DSTV to Wi-Fi, from a beautiful terrace to a cosy kitchenette. The room is very spacious and the bathroom is very nice. Here we want definitely come back.
Christian & Hilde Devos - Waregem, Belgie ı April 2017
JustFor2 delivered exactly what it promised.
The setting is perfect, tranquil and very private in our case.
Greta was a fabulous host and very accommodating, providing a last minute bottle of red wine when I forgot to pick one up. It is those small things that make a place and stay memorable and worth it. We will definitely recommend JustFor2. Great setting, well situated in the Garden Route, with excellent restaurants in the area.
Jacques & Tina Botha, SA ı April 2017
Perfect for a relaxing getaway
We loved staying in Loerie Cottage. The cottage is furnished to a very high quality and is set in a beautiful location. We spent most of our time relaxing on the deck, taking in the amazing views. The cottage has everything you need for self-catering, and is also only a short drive from nice restaurants in the Wilderness town, so we had the option to eat in or out. This place is perfect for a relaxing getaway!
Gemma & Joe Daron, UK ı April 2017
"A lovely place, with a fabulous view. Everyone we needed was here. Greta even provided us with a bbq so we could enjoy the stunning sunsets from the balcony. It was a great location for exploring wilderness national park and environs. The stunning beach was a 5 min drive away."
Mike & Gillian, Oxford, UK ı April 2017
Such a warm welcome and friendly hosts.
Just right for relaxation and discovering the local area. Easy access to shops, beach, restaurants etc.
Fantastic and quiet location! Close to the beach and nice restaurants. The huge room has a separate entrance and a kitchenette with everything you need. Great bed, great shower and bath. The outside terrace is set in the beautiful garden overlooking the lake/lagoon. Greta is a great host. She will make sure you have everything you need while respecting your privacy. Highly recommended place along the beautiful Garden Route! We hope to be back in the future!
Daan de Leeuw - Nederland ı March 2017
This appt is of the best first class quality and set in a quiet scenic and beautiful location. The appt we had was on the ground floor and had a little garden with table and chairs where we could enjoy the view and the quiet. Many birds also to be seen. There is everything you will need for your stay in the appt including a braai for those outside suppers. Would highly recommend.
Melanie and Bruce Newman - England ı March 2017
Romantisches Baumhaus-Feeling mit allem Comfort
Wo soll man da anfangen? Großartiger Ausblick der einem demütig macht, vor allem auch nachts beim Sternenhimmel Südafrikas, sehr nette Gastgeber, leichte Abwicklung bei An- und Abreise, super sauber! Für uns the Place to be! Danke
Veronika & Florian Peschel, Germany ı March 2017
A friendly welcome and a most comfortable stay
My partner Margaret and I stayed for a week in Greta's Hoepoe apartment and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The apartment is on the ground floor, underneath the owners' accommodation, but it completely private and self contained. One large room contains a comfy bed, table and chairs and a small cooking unit. There is a roomy ensuite bathroom, with both bath and shower. Outside there is a paved seating area with table and chairs, which is secluded but still offers views to the Outeniqua hills. Wilderness has a number of decent eating places within a few minutes drive or you can cook up something in your own kitchen, as we did several times, eating on the patio with a glass of South African wine to hand. Greta even volunteered to do the washing up! Greta and Roger are helpful, friendly hosts, for whom nothing is too much trouble. This is excellent place to stay if you are a couple or single wanting self catering accommodation in Wilderness. Highly recommended.
A perfect place from which to explore the area and to relax.
Steve Martin & Margaret, King's Lynn, UK ı February 2017
Private position with fabulous views, close to amenities & beach
The location of this self contained one bed studio is fabulous - overlooking a lagoon area with mountains in the distance. I could photograph the fish eagle on his roost from my balcony and the double collared sunbirds chirped noisily as the visited the many flowers - we even had a spotted eagle owl perch right next to our balcony! The apartment is located in a very quiet road but literally about 5 minutes drive to a whole group of excellent restaurants and really close to the most beautiful empty beach. The property itself has a wonderful new rain shower with fab blue lighting - and the room has plenty of seating and a very comfy large bed. The terrace is covered and there are two sunbeds and a table chairs and bbq. Personally, I love to sit in the sun but as the terrace is covered this is not possible which I think is a bit of a shame. Greta is the most accommodating host and is very happy to give lots of help and advice on where to go and what to eat! Overall, a great stay.
Gillian & Patrick - UK ı January 2017
Wunderschönes und sehr gut gelegenes Cottage! Ruhig, mit freiem Blick auf die Lagune, perfekt, um auszuspannen. Es ist schlön und vollständig eingerichtet, hervorragendes Bett! Wilderness ist mit dem Auto in wenigen Minuten erreichbar. Für uns eine der besten Unterkünfte an der Garden Route! Uns hat sie so begeistert, dass wir schon für nächstes Jahr gebucht haben! Greta ist ein hervorragender Gastgeber!
Dagmar & Andreas Hamann, Taching am See, DE ı January 2017

David Tarpey & Kasha, Johannesburg ı December 2016
“Een geweldig plekje om te verblijven in Wilderness !
Zeer vriendelijke, hulpvaardige en warmhartige eigenaars. Kamers mooi ingericht en met aandacht voor details. Maar bovenal een schitterende ligging ! Een adembenemend uitzicht, zeer rustig gelegen en toch ben je in 'no time’ bij de zee of het centrum. Wij hebben tevens enorm genoten van de verscheidenheid aan vogeltjes aan ons terras. Een echte aanrader !”
Jenny & Mark - Meerhout, Belgie ı November 2016
2 days in Wilderness
“A nice, clean, quiet place, a small accommodation but it has all what is useful for self-catering, very friendly host”
Kerstin & Tino - Frankfurt, Germany ı November 2016
“Die Lage mit Blick auf den See und das Schilf von der Terasse ist unübertroffen. Trotz der Nähe zur N2 ist es absolut ruhig, da die Strasse hinter dem Berg liegt. Man hat das Gefühl man ist inmitten der Wildnis. Das Apartment ist super ausgestattet und sauber. Das Bett ist sehr groß und bequem. Nächstes mal werden wir hier deutlich länger bleiben als nur 2 Tage. Danke an Greta die uns ein freundlicher und kompetenter Gastgeber war. Ihre Informationen zu Restaurants, Einkaufmöglichkeiten und Routentipps für die Weiterreise durch die Karoo waren super.”
Dominik & Petra Werner, Baden-Baden ı October 2016
“Die Unterkunft ist sehr schön, liebevoll und super gemütlich eingerichtet. Die idyllische und ruhige Lage am Fluss bietet einen erholsamen Aufenthalt. Aktivitäten wie Kanu oder Wandern sind in unmittelbarer Umgebung erreichbar. Vielen Dank auch an Greta und ihren Mann für die nette Gastfreundschaft und Hilfsbereitschaft. Wir kommen gerne wieder!!!”
Marcus Priewe, Munich ı September 2016
“Vue incroyable depuis la terrasse. Les propriétaires nous ont prêté gratuitement des vélos et donné de super conseils sur les activités avoisinantes.”

“Super schönes Appartement in ruhiger Wohngegend. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und schön und hochwertig eingerichtet. Die Gastgeber sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir würden definitiv wieder hier übernachten.”
mr Robert Rehmann - Dortmund ı April 2016
Net die wegbreek wat ons nodig gehad het!
Great plekkie, sal definitief weer kom kuier!
Sal beslis Justfor2 aanbeveel. Uitsigte is besonders, veral as mens lekker koffie op die balkon geniet. Ligging is besonders mooi, beeldskoon natuur en net lekker rustig. Greta was baie verwelkomend en ons sommer dadelik tuis gevoel. Sy het ook uit haar pad gegaan om my te akkomodeer met kort kennisgewing verassing wat ek vir my lewensmaat beplan het - en het ingespring en gehelp met my versoek. Greta was ook baie behulpsaam met informasie oor eetplekkies en wat om te doen in die omgewing. Plekkie is oulik en baie netjies en ten volle toegerus- presies net wat ons twee nodig gehad het en verwag het. Ons sal beslis weer daar bly met ons volgende vakansie in Wildernis!
Anke & Angie - Houtbay ı May 2016
What a view!
“I just absolutely loved the view from our balcony (stayed in the cottage) and the sound of the frogs at night and beautiful stars. Really great location down the street next to the lake perfect for an early morning run. Walks into wilderness national park within walking distance. Apartment had everything we needed and was clean and comfortable. Super friendly hosts.”
Joanne & Will Turner, Loughborough, UK ı April 2016
The place to be for refreshing your soul
“Everything about the place nice and quiet. Very peaceful - would go there again”
Natalia Steenkamp, Mosselbay - South Africa ı April 2016
Fantastiese verblyf in 'n baie rustige area
Ons het ons verblyf hier vreeslik geniet. Dis geleë reg in 'n baie stil straat reg langs die meer met 'n pragtige uitsig. Ons het 'n privaat stoepie gehad waar ons elke aand gebraai het en waar die voëltjies kom bad en eet het. Greta was vreeslik vriendelik en behulpsaam en het elke dag kom skoonmaak. Die kamer was baie ruim, met 'n ongelooflike badkamer met stort en bad. Sal definitief aanbeveel!
Ilana Kramer, Johannesburg ı March 2016
Stunning location, underpinned by exceptional value for money and friendly hospitality
Gretha is a gracious host, who offers beautiful accommodation to visitors to the Garden Route. Our unit was clean, comfortable, safe and well equipped. We loved every moment of our stay - the quiet tranquility in this beautiful little town is awe inspiring. We happily recommend JustFor2 as the ideal accommodation for any visitor to Wilderness, and plan on staying there again on our next visit.
Adele Wright - Pretoria, South Africa ı March 2016
Beautiful private room ("Kudu-room") with wonderful view and great hosts!
“Greta & Roger welcomed us with open arms (and even a drink a bit later in the evening on the day of our arrival). Our communication (at first via whatsapp) went smoothly and everything was just perfect: the room, the view, the location, the hosts... Even though there wasn't a kitchen, everything was perfectly manageable with our bbq and a microwave!”
Jan & Eva - Antwerpen ı March 2016
Great Great Great!
5 minutes from the village center situated inbetween nature, nature and more nature. Best place to relax and spent some good time in Wilderness. Greta and her husband are amazing and you feel like at home in their wonderful cottage!”
Monica Verolla - Germany ı February 2016
“Greta is a bubbly, fun and welcoming host who made us feel very 'at home' in her beautiful cottage in the trees – with the most stunning view imaginable. We'd done a lot of driving so it made the perfect spot to relax, do some canoeing and hiking before hitting the road again. She even offered to do some washing for us for the full 'home from home' experience. We had a memorable stay and the only problem was we didn't book to stay long enough!”
Ellie Seymour, Brighton - UK ı February 2016
Empfang, tolle ruhige Lage, sehr schöne Aussicht vom Balkon”
Ralf & Barbara, Germany ı December 2015
A few days in paradise
We have been staying for a couple of nights and really enjoyed the feeling living in the pure nature. Our hosts have been very, very friendly and the flat is just gorgeous. We felt comfortable and cozy from the very first moment. We were also lucky of having some nice encounters with wild animals. One night a genet wildcat was exploring our balkony and we were able to study her in detail. Unfortunately the photos are not the best. Another time we saw a giant tortoise of approx. 50 cm length, directly on Lake road. At least for germans this is a giant one ;-). Finally we spotted a pair of fish eagle from our balkony. All in all it has been some wonderful days and nights and we are definetely planning to come back. Thanks again to our hosts Greta & Roger, who made this an unforgettable vacation.
Frank & Edith, Kelsterbach, Germany ı February 2016
JustFor2 is a tiny little cottage on stilts that has stunning views of the grasslands and lake near Wilderness.
It may be petite but, what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in beauty and tranquility. The owner and host, Greta, could not have been more kind helpful with all our needs and questions.
Greta makes JustFor2 an exceptional holiday rental. She thoroughly deserves her consistent five star ratings.
Allister & Sandra Taggert - Northern Ireland ı February 2016
Fancy house for those who love a calm place

Excellent breakaway for 2 people!
“The owners were fantastic - extremely friendly and helpful whilst respecting our privacy. Facilities were just right for 2 people looking to break away for a couple of days.”
Rudolph & Mari Claassen, Faerie Glen, Pretoria, ı December 2015
Cozy place in Wilderness
Selfcatering, coffee and tea provided. Very comfy bed and nicely arranged. You need a car as it is in a tranquil neighbourhood to reach the little centre / restaurants like cocomo bar or the mainbeach, but this didn't bother us at all.
Patrizia & Markus, Switzerland ı November 2015
Sehr nette und freundliche Gastgeber, wunderschöne Unterkunft mit paradiesischem Garten, ein Highlight auf unserer Südafrikareise.
Konrad und Monika Moser - DE ı November 2015
We had a wonderful experience at JustFor2. Greta was friendly and offered us good advice on the area and the cottage was neat and cosy with beautiful views of the lake and mountains. We loved the view from the balcony and the sunsplashed bedroom with its comfy kingsized bed. I would definitely recommend it.
Wilhelm Heyns - South Africa ı November 2015

“The best place to come to rest! A quiet place, enough privacy, great nature, nice hosts, a really nice appartment!”
Gill - UK ı October 2015
Wat een heerlijke plek!
Precies wat ik nodig had, licht, privé, een prachtig weids uitzicht en Greta en Roger, lieve, warme mensen die alles van de omgeving weten. Na een verblijf van tien dagen wilde ik alleen nog maar langer blijven. De cottage heeft alles wat je nodig hebt, een heerlijk bed, lekkere douche en vooral het terrasje buiten heb ik ten volle benut, 's ochtends om te ontbijten en s' avonds met een dekentje, wijntje en kaarsje. Vogels, vlinders en prachtige bloemen, niets meer aan doen! Wat mij betreft een klein stukje rust en paradijs in Wilderness…
Lotte Mooij - Nederland ı September 2015
“Compact but fabulous”
For once...an establishment whose photo's dont actually do justice to it! This is a tiny little slice of heaven! Peaceful and private, fabulously appointed with everything needed for a self catered holiday for a couple. Fabulous views over the lake, ideal for bird watchers or anyone wanting to check out of life and vegetate with a book on the patio.
Kate & Mike Wood, Ballito (SA) ı May 2015
“This is the perfect location if you would like to get away for a while. The scenery was beautiful, the accomodation was great and the owners are really nice people. There is not a single complain and I hope to be back soon. And this time a little bit longer!

Mechthild & Wini Jansen - Riffel, Frankfurt (DE) ı March 2015
“Het huisje is heel mooi gelegen in de natuur maar niet te ver van winkels en restaurants. Het heeft een heerlijk terras. Alles is aanwezig en het bed is van goede kwaliteit. Greta is heel hartelijk en hulpvaardig.”
KITTY Evers, Oberägeri (CH) ı March 2015
“Nicht nur die wunderbaren Gastgeber, auch diese Wohlfühlatmosphäre, das extrem bequeme Bett, die tolle Ausstattung (sogar für den Grill wurde uns Kohle zur Verfügung gestellt), der tolle Blick auf See und Landschaft, ....haben unseren Aufenthalt dort zu einem Traum gemacht. Wir würden jederzeit und werden hoffentlich bald wiederkommen! Viele Unternehmungsmögichkeiten in der Umgebung (Strand, Kanufahren, Wandern,....).”
Anne und Johannes, München ı March 2015
“Lage am See von Wilderness, das tropische Flair der Terrasse und des Gartens, schönes geräumiges Zimmer, großes Bad, sehr nette Gastgeber, man konnte abends am See bei Vollmond wunderschön spazieren gehen und den Geräuschen der Natur lauschen”
Berenike, Hamburg ı March 2015
Stayed for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Wonderful bed and linen. Lots of cupboard space. Lovely views from the balcony. Helpful and friendly owner. Kitchen had all one would need. All in all a place to remember and visit again!
Tini H, Villiersdorp, South Africa ı March 2015
“Greta und Roger (die Besitzer) sind super nett und hilfsbereit. Unterkunft ist ruhig gelegen, schöner Ausblick, hell und freundlich eingerichtet. Wir kommen wieder!”
Jens, Itteldorf - DE ı March 2015
Exceeding our expectations
It looked really good on the website and it exceeded our expectations. The apartment is well appointed and well kept. We received a warm welcome on arrival. Tea, coffee, milk and other supplies in the kitchen were most welcome.
The view from the balcony overlooks a country park and as we like bird watching, we spent much of our time with scope and binoculars looking out over the reed beds. The apartment and balcony is very private and not overlooked, ideal for working on the suntan.
Visiting by rental car, it is a short drive to the shops in nearby Wilderness, to the National Park and to the beach. We also visited the railway museum in George. We stayed three nights and wished we had booked more!
Just one word of warning - there are a lot of steps up to the apartment, but how else would you get the spectacular view.
John & Barbara, UK ı February 2015
“Très bien reçus par Greta.
Extrêmement rapide a répondre a vos questions. Avons adoré ce 'cottage' pour sa tranquillité et sa vue. Aucun vis à vis Parfait pour y passer quelques jours. Nous sommes venus faire de la parapente et avons apprécié la proximité des sites, du village et de la plage Nous reviendrons bientôt.”
Florence Sexton - FR ı February 2015

Paul en Véronique van Loon, Geldrop, Nl ı February 2015
This is the ideal spot for a couple looking for privacy and to enjoy perfect peace in beautiful countryside. The views from the terrace are lovely with plenty of passing bird life. The accommodation is bright and very comfortable and Greta and Roger are the perfect hosts.
Keith & Jane, Scotland ı January 2015
”Zeer vriendelijke Belgische gastvrouw Greta. Zij creëert een open en ontspannen sfeer. Ruime kamer en badkamer met een smaakvolle inrichting, heel gezellig terras naast een tweede zitje onder een boom met af en aanvliegende vogeltjes van diverse soort. Het grote huis waar het benedenappartement deel van uitmaakt ligt aan een fraaie, zeer rustige weg met villa's; aan de andere kant van de weg rietlanden langs een riviertje dat verderop uitmondt in een meer. Centrum van het kleine Wilderness heeft leuke restaurants, met (huur)auto makkelijk te bereiken. We hebben er een prachtig verblijf gehad.”
Paul en Angela van den Wildenberg, Hilversum ı February 2015
“It was so sweet, clean and had the most wonderful views and ambience! Greta and Roger were fab hosts - located a short distance from the beach and restaurants but very close to all the birdlife. Beautiful”
Gillian & Patrick, Kent, UK ı February 2015
Ein schönes Quartier mit einem Garten wie eine Oase. Sehr ruhig und immer wieder mit bunten Vögeln, die zu Besuch kommen.
Christian & Nici, Hannover ı January 2015
I enjoyed staying at Just For 2 guest house. The host was friendly and the apartment was comfortable. It was a very pleasant and peaceful location.
Loved the cottage. Very comfortable. The bed was comfortably. Cleaning and making the bed was a bonus. I did not expect that. It was much appreciated....
Doreen & Gary Wocker, South Africa ı January 2015
Die Lage ist traumhaft; geführt von einem sehr netten und zuvorkommenden Paar; es sind nur zwei Zimmer verfügbar, daher ist es sehr persönlich.
Regina, Munchen ı December 2014
Eigenlijk heb ik hier geen woorden voor,
...dit moet je voelen. We hebben gebruik gemaakt van de 2 persoonskamer met een prachtig uitzicht op de gekleurde suikervogels, die enthousiast drinken uit het drinkflesje. Achter dit uitzicht ligt het Wilderniss National Park. Greta heeft ons 'what to do' tips gegeven en deze waren zeker de moeite waard. Tja...wat wil je nog meer. Eigenlijk was ons verblijf van 3 nachten zelfs te kort.
Els Van der Mossel, Eindhoven Nl ı December 2014
“Definitely one of the best accomodations on our SA trip!
Close to nature, very quiet (exzept for the frogs at night :)), excellent braaiing facilities, very nice terrace, very welcoming hosts.”
Catharina Bleser, Hamburg ı November 2014
“De ontvangst van de goedlachse Belgische Gastvrouw Greta haar lach is zo aanstekelijk geweldig.. En natuurlijk het mooie uitzicht het lijkt of je uitkijkt over een savanne.. Het heerlijke bed..eindelijk een dag geen rugpijn gehad.. Het was al met al een heerlijke plek waar je je meteen thuis voelt heerlijk Rustig en relaxed zeker een plek om aan te raden..”
Debby, Zandvoort (NL) ı November 2014

“Prima huisje. Erg ruim. 's Avonds kan je gezellig buiten zitten. Mensen zijn enorm vriendelijk!”
Nies, Loenhout - Belgium ı October 2014
This is an AMAZING little cottage. It just couldn't have been more perfect - except if I'd gotten to spend a week ...or a month! there instead of only a couple days.
The cottage is perfect & Greta is a wonderful, happy, warm & welcoming person. She is one of our favorite hosts for our 3 week holiday in South Africa & Dubai. She & her husband & this amazing, beautiful & quiet cottage get an enthusiastic 2 thumbs up from both Mom & myself. Thanks again Greta - & if you ever visit the west coast of the States - both of us would love to get to host you.
Tracy Oniya - Seattle USA ı September 2014
“Perfect hide-away in Wilderness”
We spent three nights at JustFor2 and right after we entered the cottage we knew that we would enjoy our time there. From the balcony in front of the cottage you have a nice view of the island lake and the end of the serpentine river which you can enjoy either from the couch or bank.
The kitchen is well equipped for cooking your own meal at night if for having breakfast in the morning. The cottage itself is very neat and nicely decorated with traditional (South) African elements.
Greta is a very welcoming host whom we enjoyed to talk to and who gave us great tips of what to do and see around the area. She also provides you with enough information and guides for activities and things happening around Wilderness.
We also appreciated that it is a very safe area so that most of the houses do not even have a fence and where you can easily go for a walk or drive during the night.
All in all we had a great stay at JustFor2 and would definitely stay there again and again and again :) And it is by far a better alternative to stay in Wilderness then in Knysna!

The hosts were very friendly, made us feel very welcome and offered more than what we asked for. Even offered us to use of their bicycles!!! We will definitely be back there.

De meer dan hartelijke ontvangst met de schaterende lach van Greta. We voelden ons meteen thuis in de ruime Kudu kamer met het enorme bed en de prachtige badkamer. JustFor2 ligt aan de rand van een prachtig natuurgebied.”

“Camera spaziosa, Ben arredata,
...il posto silenzioso e la gentilezza e disponibilita' dei proprietari. Lo consigliamo vivamente, é stato uno dei migliori posti in cui siamo stati!”
Michele - Flavia Ambrosini (Aljezur - Portugal) ı February 2014
Wunderschöne ruhige Lage, allerdings etwas außerhalb. Für Naturliebhaber eine Freude. Die beiden Gastgeber sind sehr zuvorkommend und stets für ihre Gäste da.

Hundred percent worth another visit
This was one of the most memorable places we stopped at on our honeymoon road trip. Breathtaking views. The hosts Greta and Roger were so friendly. We felt right at home. Not even the odd rain and thunderstorm could spoil the view. Cottage was cosy and extremely clean and had all the extras. We were even surprised with a bottle of champagne and chocolates from the hosts. Not forgetting the wise words of wisdom on marriage from this awesome couple. Thank you Greta and Roger. Definitely a place worth revisiting.

"Specially Little Place"
What a truly awesome little place! Very neat, well decorated, comfortable with everything you need. Greta has really done an excellent job with this place. We stayed in the upstairs cottage with an amazing view of the lake. From the minute you walk in to the minute you depart, you are may to feel welcome. It is very central, nice road for a scenic walk and the view from the balcony was breathtaking. We would definitely recommend it to anybody and will most surely stay there again when in Wilderness.

Wunderbare Lage am Rande eines Naturschutzgebietes, Nähe zu einem wunderbaren langen Sandstrand. Die Unterkunft bietet alles zur Selbstversorgung.

“Tranquility, blissful, unique”
The hostess, Greta welcomed us with a friendly smile. Everything exceeded my expectations and it quite easy to just switch off and lay back from the minute we stepped into the self catering cottage for two. Everything was laid out like as advertised. The view from the deck was breathtaking. A definite check in for future visits to the garden route.
Plus: the peacefulness it and its surrounds offered. its difficult to find accomodation that caters for two adults and this place was ideal....location, quietness, picturesque surrounds, birdlife...

The accommodation was great, the people were great. We certainly had a good time. Thank you for accommodating us, we will definitely recommend to others.

Dear Greta and Roger,
Just a quick little note to say thanks again for the awesome little cottage! You have a super cottage and the location is just perfect. We really enjoyed spending time on the balcony reading while listening to the amazing birdlife in the surrounds. We wish you all the best.
Marcel and Donne’ Schwartz - SA ı November 2013
Accommodation was clean and very comfortable, lovely views from the balcony and an idyllic tranquil area. Greta and Roger went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, and they gave us lots of information on the local area.
Would highly recommend "Just for 2".

“Prachtig uitzicht, zon en een geweldige gastheer en -vrouw”
We hebben hier twee prima overnachtingen gehad langs de Tuinroute, geen massatoerisme. Persoonlijke benadering, prima kamer, vogels spotten vanaf het balkon. We konden zelfs fietsen mee krijgen. In de keuken is alles aanwezig, maar een BBQ op het terras is ook een optie. Prima stop op weg of terug naar/van Oudtshoorn of Addo. Dit alles voor een heel betaalbare prijs! Echte aanrader!!!!!
Angelita & Jos - Almere NL ı October 2013
Greta and Roger were very welcoming. They shared local knowledge and made our six-night stay most enjoyable. The wee flat was extremely clean, tasteful, modern and had everything we needed for comfort (and warmth - the nights were really cold). The view from the balcony is of mountains, reed beds, Serpentine River and Island Lake, wonderfully peaceful. We visited Cango Caves and Swartzberg Pass one day. There are several walking trails close by, which we enjoyed. Wilderness was conveniently close (4km) for fuel and groceries (we self-catered mostly) and it also had a wide choice of places to eat out. Altogether, Justfor2 was an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. Well recommended.
Anne & John Tee, England ı 11-17 / 09 / 2013
We went to the Garden Route for a golf course and stayed in Wilderness as it is centrally situated. We've chosen our venue almost at random as our main criteria was being in a quite and private setting, away from crowdy B&B's.
JustFor2 was a very good choice! Beautiful views from our deck, easy walks to the forest and to the nearby beaches. Friendly hosts, free use of bicycles and good internet!
Everything you need for a relaxed stay.
& Ute, Munchen ı October 2013
We had a marvelous stay at the cozy chalet and was overwhelmed with the view and friendly host. It is worth another and longer stay. Thank you Greta and Roger.

A good place for birding!
We saw an Osprey catching a fish in the river just in front of the cottage... no photos of it, but lots of other birds. We missed the Knysna Loerie ... so we have to go back. Nice cottage and very friendly people who gave us a lot of explanation of the region and what to visit. Don’t miss the farmers market in Sedgefield on Saturday ! Nice room with big kitchen, terrace with lovely view on the marsh and lakes
Daan & Martine Stemgee, Belgium ı February 2013
A JustFor2 pleasure !
We arrived on a Friday and were well received by Roger and Greta our hosts for the weekend. The cottage has beautiful views over the lakes of the Wilderness. This is the ideal getaway if you want a quiet and peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle. The cottage is also centrally located so that exploring of the Garden Route is easily done.
Roger and Greta have lent their European take on the African decor and feel to the cottage. Waking up in the morning and having a coffee on the deck soaking up the splendid view and sounds of the Wilderness. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
