We had the most wonderful stay at Cabin 16 in the Phantom River View estate in March. It is a beautifully furnished and spacious cabin in the woods, however the views are what makes this place absolutely magical. The cabin has a blissful serenity to it that makes it the perfect place to unwind in. If you are in need...

I haven’t been on holiday in such a long time, and the weekend away at King’s Gift did wonders for my soul. It was a time of relaxation, restoration and quiet contemplation as I looked at the beautiful forestry with nothing but the company of birds chirping away in the distance. The cabin is spacious, yet cosy – and lighting...

If you need to get away from the rush, this is a fantastic place to go. We were woken by the birds in the morning and then spent the rest of the day relaxing. If you need to make a run to town, Knysna is a quick drive away. But mostly this is where you go to get away. The...

was here for 4 nights with our visitors from Switzerland and what a beautiful place to stay. So peaceful and awesome just to sit on the deck and watch the various variety of bird life settle on the trees and bushes while entertaining you with their various chirps and individual sounds. All this and still close to an abundance of...

Our family of 4 adults and 2 small children( 5and4) arrived fairly late in the evening to find the cabin in tip top condition.We were impressed by the fantastic view across the valley and the quiet and peaceful atmosphere. The town of Knysna is only about 10 minutes away down an interesting winding road. I have no hesitation in recommending...

We stayed at the kings gift house. A wonderful wooden house with a spectacular view. The house is comfortable and well equipped. The rooms are comfortable and there is more then enough space. The kitchen has everything in it to cook good meals. The showers are nice and warm. The swimming pool is an asset. And we really enjoyed ourselves.

Great location and beautiful place with great views, but the unit was not cleaned properly when we arrived. We had to rewash all the dishes. There was a lot of dust as well. There needs to be a good spring clean of the unit

An ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of our everyday rushing... Very peaceful and close to nature. 😌 All the amenities you need to have relaxed time and close enough to town that you can stock up again.

My friends and i can't stop talking about the place and our stay there. The cabin itself is so beautiful, clean and well looked after. The beautiful view and sight when waking up in the morning is out of this world. We will surely come back for a longer stay 😃

“Bring food to cook in the cabin. Otherwise there are restaurants in the centre of Knysna which is located very near the Phantom River View. Very quiet area. Near the Paradise Garden and the Elephant Park”
