                                                            Stayed at SeaBreeze for a week. Stunning property in a spectacular position. Beautiful and well maintained interior, superbly equipped with everything you could possibly need, multi-level decking with uninterrupted views over the ocean. Everyone connected with our booking and stay couldn't have been more helpful and obliging. Also loads of interesting things to do in and around Wilderness.

                                                            Wonderful

                                                            4 of 5
                                                            Our hosts could not have been more friendly, obliging and accommodating. Our accommodation was spacious, clean and comfortable. Only one minor problem. Sime other guests forgot to lock the bathroom door, therefore a Vacant/Engaged sign on the bathroom door would avoid little embarrassments. The garden and swimming pool are beautiful and Krista provides a fantastic massage if required. Thouroughly recommended Kate and Clive Corbey
