Wilderness Manor is a 4 room guest house that overlooks the beautiful Wilderness lagoon. Recently refurbished, it offers very spacious accommodation in a style that is a both traditional yet modern. Owners Gerald and JD have been at the guest house for 10 years. Wilderness Manor is extremely reasonably priced given the quality of the accommodation and its location on the lagoon.


The location overlooking the lagoon gives staying at Wilderness Manor a feeling of serenity as if you are far removed from “normal” day to day life. Yet it is still only a beautiful (and flat) 15 minute walk or a 2 minute drive to the central area of Wilderness, with its large selection of restaurants and amenities. The beach is around 20 minutes walk away.

Three of the four rooms are upstairs with views over the lagoon. The other room is on the ground floor at the back of the property, with it’s own private garden (no lagoon view).
