Nice place outside of Knysna, but close to visit all the sites by car. Charming guesthouse with top service and relaxing garden. Safe, clean, friendly and very comfortable. Nice breakfast in the garden.

Driving the Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, we stopped for just one night. Our room was immaculate and very comfortable. Received a warm welcome and helpful suggestions for what to see and do in the time available. Breakfast the following morning was a gourmet treat, and the view over the bay from the breakfast terrace is stunning.

This guest house has several rooms/suites and I only saw two of them. The suite we had was not as nice as the other suite I saw. I think we were in suite 4 and the lighting in the bathroom needs to be enhanced. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast choices were reasonable and the food...

Thank you for taking the time to do a review. We will certainly look at the bathroom lighting. I hope your husband's leg is better. If you come again, please book the Executive Suite which is the largest room with the best views.

We stayed two nights during our last trip in Sudafrica, two families in two Rooms. Both of them are really good: big space, clean and complete of every necessity. Breakfast is prepared directly by the owners and is really complete. Cortesy and smile from them.

My husband and I really enjoyed the clean, modern room and Janet's welcome! It's very quiet and we slept incredibly well. There are good restaurants and lots to see and do a 10-minute drive away. Breakfast is delicious.
