Warm, welcoming helpful staff were the highlight of our stay. The chalet (number 6) was compact, comfortable and everything necessary was provided.The decor appears to be aimed at the overseas traveller- murals of the big 5, lifesize concrete springbuck on the lawns.

Had one of the chalets and really enjoyed our time. We had lunch at the pool followed by 1 hour spa treatements which were really nice. The chalets are very nice with all modern cons and a jacuzzi. You also have your own terrace and can enjoy the evening sun. Whilst we didn't like Knysna that much we enjoyed Tonquani.

Bathroom was stunning and living area was spacious and stylishly decorated. The breakfast was served in the room as dining room undergoing improvements....

Complementary port, preheated cabin, welcoming staff - the perfect start to a chilly winter holiday. We would highly recommended this little gem. Close enough for quick access to Knysna and surroundings but far enough to experience peacefulness of rural living.
