Loerie’s View is a self-catering holiday house situated in the beautiful and peaceful town of Wilderness. The establishment is named after the famous Knysna Loerie, which is normally very elusive and difficult to spot in its natural habitat. However the Knysna Loerie can be regularly seen in the indigenous bush surrounding the house, which is a special sight and a unique feature.

The house is renowned for its warm and homely atmosphere, created not only by the stylish and tasteful interior, but also by the tranquil environment. It's perfect for a romantic getaway or simply just a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. We are within walking distance of the swimming beach, lagoon, wellness centre and spa as well as the Wilderness village where you’ll find a vast variety of shops and quality restaurants to enjoy. You can also admire the magnificent sunsets and natural splendour from the comfort of your own private deck.

Loerie’s View is centrally located and ideal to explore all the fabulous attractions and many sporting activities the Garden Route has to offer. Golf lovers will be able to play more than 10 spectacular world class courses in the nearby area. Be sure to experience one of the most scenic holiday destinations in the heart of the Garden route.

Oakhurst is one of the original large properties of the Garden Route. Situated in the Wilderness district, near George. It lies on the undulating plateau between the indigenous forests of the Outeniqua Mountains and the steep forest gorges sloping down to the Wilderness "lake district".

The farm covers the area of 640 hectares, 200 hectares of which is forest and fynbos. Five years ago, Jake and Claire decided to restore the Old House on Oakhurst in which they live today. The Old house had lain derelict for decades. Today it had been preserved to its original state. Here they live with their two daughters. In the bottom of the garden is the beautiful stone building in the 1800's, it was very dated, dilapidated and tired. Two years ago, Jake decided to restore the Forge and turn it into a very unique, comfortable and beautiful farm cottage. Built out of rock and huge yellowwood beams, the cottage sleeps two adults and maximum of three children comfortably. It enjoys a quiet setting overlooking the most beautiful forests and fields grazed by herds of jersey dairy cows and Aberdeen Angus beef cattle.

Our cottages have been a part of Oakhurst for the past 30 years; they were originally built for Oakhurst’s farmhands, who in the past year have obtained new housing. The five cottages have now been authentically restored, with every possible attention to detail.

In true Oakhurst tradition, we’ve kept a little of the history intact by naming the cottages after their original inhabitants. Kween’s Kaya, Awies Attic, Leenies Lair, Hans’s Hollow and Nick’s Nook are set along the edge of a section of forest, intersected with a gurgling stream that flows during the rainy periods.

Each cottage is privately positioned and fully set up for self-catering, with a well-equipped kitchen and cosy living area with wooden floors. The living area in turn opens out onto a large wooden deck and braai area. This is the spot where you can either enjoy a good meal around the large wooden table or simply enjoy some of Oakhurst’s fine mountain air while getting stuck into a good book.

Each cottage features three bedrooms, one double and two twins, and sleeps up to six people. There is also a central bathroom with a shower. Garden Route winters can be cold, and a fire roaring in the kitchen’s wood-burning stove sets the perfect atmosphere for farm winters.

Ideal for families, a group of friends or even larger groups, our farm cottages make a superb Garden Route escape, just a short drive from the beach and a stone's throw from the mountains.

Wilderness South Africa

Wilderness Self-catering Accommodation

Wilderness, in the heart of the Garden Route, is a lovely little town in the most fabulous setting. With forested hills at its back, the town jigsaws itself around a number of pretty wetlands and flows over the high coastal dunes to overlook a magnificent, long, snow white beach where dolphins and whales come to play. Just to the west of the town, the pitch-black, mysterious, forest-clad Kaaimans River wends its way to the sea flowing under a series of bridges that support the N2 and a narrow gauge railway line that carries the historical Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe steam train that runs between George and Knysna.

Although there are lots of lovely places where you can just kick back, have a drink or a meal gazing at a fabulous view, or just read a book under a tree, Wilderness is primarily an active destination. With some fabulous paragliding launch sites, it’s a great place to learn to fly or just to do a tandem flight.

The Wilderness National Park conserves an extensive wetland that winds between lovely flood-plains and indigenous forest. You can rent canoes to explore the meandering waterways or just go for a lovely walk.

Keen birders will appreciate the laid out day trails to and between some very well placed bird hides. You could abseil down a waterfall, do a scenic kloofing (canyoning) trip or join a mountain biking expedition, and the surfing is great.

On Saturday mornings, the nearby Wild Oats Farmers Market is a feast of fabulous food and other delights. Wilderness is on the N2 and close to the airport at George.
