Coming from Reunion Island, my husband, our teenage son and myself spent 3 lovely nights at Amber Guest Lodge. We enjoyed the warm welcome from Janet and Derek and the appartment we stayed in had a wonderful view on Knysna lagoon. Very quiet area, easy access to golf courses,, sightseeings and touristic attractions. Excellent breakfast too. An address to remember.
