Kate and Nathalie did all what is possible. Great hospitality and warm reception. They took efforts to arrange dinners with 2 superb suggestions and arrangements of transports. We enjoyed to the max. The very nice suites are situated with a view at the bay. Breakfast was simple but was topped with eggs and bacons or 'wafels' as you wish. We...

From what I saw there must be hundreds of B&B's in Knysna but this one is surely hard to beat. Rooms were excellent and the breakfast was outstanding. The hosts Nathalie and Kate are the ones that make the difference though. They make sure that every guest feels right at home; they even gifted us a birdbook when they hear...

Kate & Natalie make your stay in their wonderful, clean, and pampering spot a joy to be in. The rooms and baths are generous, they've thought of every little detail. And they can recommend the best places to eat and visit! Enjoy the beautiful pool and comfy lounge chairs, or the large gathering spot in the communal dining area. Breakfast...

What can we say?! Even before we arrived for our late check-in at Double Dutch, we had already spoken to the fabulous Kate, who had reserved a table for us in a lovely restaurant just in case we got there hungry and everywhere was already booked up. This consideration was just a taste of what was to come during or...
