Meet the Team

Tony and Pam Thomas


Tony and Pam have been married for 55 years and have lived in the Garden Route for more than 40 years. Hospitality is second nature to them and their home has always been open to many people from all over the world. Their home in Wilderness has always had a special place in their hearts as this is where they would spend their summer holidays with their family and friends. They have owned this property for over 30 years. They had a vision of opening it to discerning travellers who wanted to enjoy the many attractions of Wilderness. To this end the property was rebuilt and opened in 2015. Thus Thomas Ville was born.

Poppie Jongbloed

Property and Marketing Manager

Poppie has been the property manager of Thomas Ville since it opened to guests in November 2015. Poppie moved to the Garden Route in 2011 as she fell in love with the scenic beauty of the area. She has a background in finance and was excited when she landed the opportunity at Thomas Ville. She enjoys interacting with people and felt that this gave her the opportunity to utilize her prior work experience and her exceptional people skills. In her free time she enjoys an active lifestyle and utilizes the beautiful hiking trails in and around George.
