We stayed at Stannard 4 nights during Christmas. The cottage was very nice furnished with a nice veranda. The pool and the grill area marvellous. Patrick and Helene-Marie are the perfect hosts. It is in a calm area outside Knysna center but taxi is quite cheap so it is really nice and calm.

We stayed a whole week in Stannards and we really have the best experience ever! Helene-marie & Patrick have created a special atmosphere there, thanks to the beautiful garden, the amazing decoration of the rooms, the tasty food and the lovely little shop.
