If you love beach holidays, you will love Mes Amis Guest House in Wilderness!

Mes Amis Guest House

Mes Amis is actually French for ‘my friends’ and it’s exactly how your hosts at this charming Wilderness guest house have endeavoured to make you feel. If you particularly love beach holidays, then Mes Amis Guest House, located right on the Wilderness beach, should be your destination.

Wilderness is a small seaside town on the Garden Route – a short distance from George. The town is famous for its long white sand beach and lagoons. The beach actually enjoys Blue Flag status.

The town experiences a Mediterranean climate, typical of the Garden Route and has little temperature variation, with year-round rainfall. The result is majestic forests and landscapes.

Mes Amis was built in 1994. This might make it an older building, but inside you will find everything to make your Wilderness holiday unforgettable.

Reviews from Mes Amis Guest House guests

“We loved staying at Mes Amis and would definitely return. It is perched above the beach with amazing views of the ocean. The room was bright and comfortable with French doors onto those views of the stunning beach. It is peaceful, all you can hear at night is the sea. The breakfast is delicious. Gerhard is very friendly and welcoming – he booked us into a great restaurant for dinner and gave us tips on where to go,” wrote AbiH202020 on their TripAdvisor page.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
