Guest Comments for Mesamis Guest House
Jean-Marc and Monica, Sementina, Switzerland. We spent some wonderful days at your guesthouse, by far the best we have had the pleasure to stay on our holydays in South Africa. Your exceptional hospitality, your delicious breakfasts, the best furnished rooms made for us an unforgettable experience. On top of that, Annetjie has surprised Monica with these wonderful table-runners which now decorate our dining-table. Many thanks.
Jenny Cape Town. Just to say thank you for our very wonderful stay at Mes Amis last week. My guests were enthralled by the setting and the views; the rooms were beautifully done out, breakfast was delicious and, most of all, 5 stars go to you for your extremely personal service! We truly loved everything about your guest house (one night was not long enough) and I will certainly recommend you to other Garden Route travellers and come again myself, given half a chance!
Alison Johannesburg. My partner Colin and I had the wonderful experience of spending 8 days at Mes Amis in December 2011. The room overlooked a super sea view and the room was bright, airy and big with lovely linen and a big bathroom. The room included a bar fridge that was always well stocked. The service and the breakfast was excellent. I really enjoyed the morning breakfast menu which also included quirky quotes, temperatures and times of the tides. I would definitely recommend Mes Amis to anyone. Having such close proximity to the beach where you had a staircase down to the beach was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed the long walks on the beach. Thanks to Gerhard and his wife for making our stay such a pleasant experience.
Loren S. Johannesburg. Oh my word how refreshing. My partner Paul and I travel rather a lot and have stayed in some good places, but Mes Amis takes the cake... we were there 23 and 24 September 2011. How lovely to be greeted by such happy friendly people and the rooms were spacious, clean and modern and fresh. The bed was like a big fluffy cloud that you could just float away on all the while watching the ocean roll back and forth. The breakfast was fabulous - refreshing in that it was not bacon, eggs and sausage everyday... and the Scotsman, oats, cream, honey and whiskey was oh so delicious. The views well totally awsome - Perfect end to a perfect holiday on the Garden Route. What a place Gerhardt and Annetjie have - we will see you again in our travels. Thank you so much guys.
Anton Lotter, South Africa Mes Amis is a 7 Star establishment. Myself and the wife have paid Mes Amis four viits the past four years. On our first visit it was just by chance that I enquired if they have a room for the night. Gerhard Groenewald made a plan at the back of his B & B. He noticed that we had a long day behind us and within 20 minutes after arrival he arrived with a tray containing a freshly baked bread and sliced biltong "with the compliments of the management". Gerhard Groenewald has the benefit of long sevicing personnel. The rooms are kept spotlessly clean with sea views to die for. All rooms have a well stocked mini bar as well as a peculator for those of us hooked on coffee.Breakfast is also something else.-Refer attached menu. You are greeted in 8 languages, excellent service, friendly kitchen personnel and food prepared like only a 7 star establishment would.Mes Amis is in my opinion an establishment you can recommend to all your friends. Gerhard thank you once again for a wonderful stay.
David Hodgson, United Kingdom. We felt we had to write to express our pleasure at staying with you 2 weeks ago in Wilderness. A fantastic location and every day a joy starting with 'Chef's Choice'! Sometime later the same day that we had left your guest house I mentioned to Eve, as we were driving along, that I really should get the car cleaned after many miles of dirt roads prior to arriving in Wilderness. However, when we stopped I was pleasantly surprised to find that the car had already been cleaned. I can only assume that one of your staff had done it for which we were very grateful and pleased that we had already left a suitable note in the Staff Fund tin in your reception.Hopefully we will return one day and you will still be running Mes Amis. Certainly we will be recommending you to all our friends.
Helen Croston, United Kingdom This was probably one of the best places we have ever stayed! Rooms are beautiful and clean, and opening the french doors let in the beautiful sound of the ocean which was calming and relaxing. The beach is down a set of steps but is totally worth the climb as it is a long flat stretch - perfect for sunsets. The host is friendly and helpful, offering a truthful view of local restaurants and amenities which was refreshing, as we had a truly wonderful stay in Wilderness. We loved it here! :-)
Steve & Cathy Kay, United States of AmericaMy friends, this place is for you. If anything, the description provided is understated. Of the five places we stayed, this was our favorite. The bed was plush, and especially for a B&B you really had your privacy. The view from your room or patio is stunning--a beautiful beach--you do have to walk down a well maintained boardwalk/steps. Gerhard greets you for breakfast (your own table with a menu of the items provided--usually two types of rolls, yogurt, muesli, juices to choose from, and then the breakfast entree's to choose from. The mini-bar items were very reasonable priced. This was a great place to relax, and our host made us feel very welcome. He obviously enjoys the local cuisine, and tipped us onto (and made reservations) a couple of unique, delightful establishments.
Geoffrey Dawson, United KingdomThis was our second choice hotel along the garden route, but turned out to be our favourite. The views from the private terraces were stunning, the room was as described, the host was very helpful and informative, and so much thought put into his guest enjoying their stay. The breakfast was outstanding with so much thought put into a changing daily menu An closing we also have to say how much we enjojed meeting the African staff who were so helpful and such fun. A real african experiece we would recommend.
Michael Humphreys-Davies, United Kingdom We had probably the best service of any guest house we've been at. Great attention to detail, spotless room, extremely helpful at booking restaurants etc; I cannot praise Gerhardt enough. Superb breakfasts, which made lunch unnecessary!
Roger, United Kingdom The quality of the accommodation is superb - much better than what you get for the equivalent price in Europe. The location on the dunes is stunning, and the surrounding Wilderness area is a paradise. Most remarkable, though, is the standard of the service. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The quality of the breakfast is amazing. My partner is gluten intolerant and this caused no problem at all - delicious rice-flour muffins were specially baked for her every morning. This has never happened anywhere else we've stayed, anywhere in the world. The perfect luxurious holiday accommodation, with fantastic service and attention to detail. Highly recommended.
Ian Wood, United Kingdom Fantastic location, beautiful views and the breakfast is something special.
Anonymous An excellent guest house with everything you could need including reviews of all the town restaurants. Wilderness is a great place to visit on a trip up the Garden Route.
Adrian Rohrbach, Switzerland Mes Amis was the best place we`ve stayed during our trip through SA. Friendly and helpful owner and staff, stunning views from the private terrace, delicious breakfast. We thoroughtly enjoyed our stay!
Joan Wilkinson, United Kingdom We enjoyed every minute of our 4 day stay at Mes Amis. A warm welcome from our host, a very comfortable and well-equipped room, super location and great breakfasts. The staff were lovely. Definitely on our list for whenever we return to South Africa.
Anne-Marie McCrum, United Kingdom Friendly and very helpful owner and staff, made our stay here very enjoyable and easy. Excellent location, comfortable - our every need catered for, and breakfasts to die for.....
Thomas, Germany One of the best places I stayed during my trip. Nice room, impressive view, great breakfast. Thank you Gerhard for the hints for dinner, was always a good choice. I will come back - for sure!
Vera Tamme, Germany Best value for money, description is absolutely true, the prevailing colour(white) and cleanliness of the rooms are fantastic, on top of that a super friendly owner who cares about you and makes you feel you are most welcome.
Steph Whittle-Bennetts, South Africa Gerhard is a warm and friendly man and makes the perfect host. He offers comfortable and beautiful accomodation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay could have stayed longer had we had the time to do so. We were very happy to have made this choice!
Cilla Van Breda, South Africa My friends from Australia and myself thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Mes Amis in Wilderness. In fact my friends tried to get a reservation for this weekend for my sons wedding and they were full, but others who will be attending the wedding are staying there. Gerhard is a great and friendly host and we will all highly recommend Mes Amis to all our friends.
Guus van der Veek, Netherlands Nice place with very special breakfast and high quality service.
Philippe Meister, Switzerland Un de nos meilleurs souvenirs en RSA, le contact direct avec une plage et un océan de rêve, petits déjeuners 5*. Gerhard le propriétaire est très organisé et aux petits soins avec ses hôtes (excellents conseils pour excursions et restaurants). Il est même prévu la disponibilité d'un en-cas en self-service et une bonne bouteille dans la chambre...
Kershree Padayachee and Magen Nayager, South Africa
Mes Amis is by far one of the best guesthouses we have ever visited. Gerhard and Annetjie are very warm, friendly and gracious hosts and their attention to the finer details made us feel very welcomed and special. The staff was also very friendly and efficient, the rooms were clean and beautifully decorated with fantastic views of the ocean and the breakfasts were outstanding (special dietary requirements were no problem at all). We would highly recommend Mes Amis. Thank you, Gerhard and Annetjie for a wonderful and relaxing stay. The quality and service we received made us proud to be South African. Wish we could have stayed even longer…
