Augusta Bay is a beautiful place to stay on the heads of Knysna. From our room we had the lagoon just in front of us. Antje and Paddy gave us the feeling to stay with friends. Very friendly and helpful couple. The breakfast was excellent. We are sure we will be back sometimes.

It is a nice place, situated with good view. Reception and dinning looks very pretty. The problem was the room. Huge and cold room with noisy air conditioning located over the bad. The room was very cold. When we were out of the room we turned the AC on and coming back was normal. The bathroom was also huge but...
