Were not offered choice of cabins and the cabin we were given was the oldest and most delapidated as far as I could see. Windows and doors badly eroded and loose, floor was dirty and Bathroom was...

Located central knysna. 5min drive to major retailers. Kwikspar on the corner of premises was very convenient. Walking distance to restaurants. Mini play park for the little ones. Decent size swimming pool for the young and old. With access to the lagoon, we had nice long walks. If your a cyclist, bring your bikes with. Not the most modern accommodation...

Awesome little gem - not very busy - very clean ablution blocks - good camp sites and great semi-permanent caravans (with additional room) - no need to get the caravan with the showers - as the ablutions are clean, large and have plenty of hot water. Also easy to walk to towards Thiessen Island to Mitchells or the Freshline Fish...

We stayed at MONKS for 3 nights over new year 2016. We have a 7 sleeper chalet overlooking the park and beyond onto the lagoon. The chalet was clean, neat and well appointed, despite being a bit on the small side. It served the purpose and I would gladly come back here. The only negative is that there should be...

This is a nice Base to explore the eastern garden route. The caravan stands are neat and offer great views of the lagoon. There's a pool to cool off in but the allusions although always tidy, are in desperate need of a revamp. There is a quick spar at the entrance for the things you've left behind.

We stayed in a chalet for one night while on a road trip. I liked the chalet. We had 2 bedrooms. Didn't like the shower in the bath that much. Kitchen with the TV was also nice after a long day on the road. Not a bad view either.

Lovely stay, did not expect the caravan kitchen to be so small, but all was clean, the caravan windows don’t all seal properly and it was quite cold, but the experience as a wole was great. Ablutions were close, the view was great, braai was serviced daily. We had to assist with gate that was off the rails very ear;y...

We hired a chalet for our family weekend getaway, which suited our needs and our family perfectly. Our chalet was clean, neat and comfortable. It had everything we needed and was definitely value for money. We were very lucky, as we had considerate and friendly neighbours. I would definitely recommend Monks to anyone looking for budget friendly, decent self catering...

Over the Easter weekend in 2015 we visited Knysna and camped out at Monks Caravan Park. Some of the other campers saw us struggling a bit with our newly bought tent and came to lend a hand. On Friday night a group of friendly people invited us over to their campfire and we enjoyed potjie kos and fried fish. Saturday...

We stayed in a chalet at Monks for the Kynsna Cycle race weekend. Rather a let-down unfortunately - there are two bedrooms but you have to go through one of the rooms to get to the bathroom. Seems rather silly. The beds however were comfy and the linen was pristine. I think the rates were inflated for the weekend and...
