We only stayed there one night but wish we're staying longer. The views we had were outstanding. The service was great and the owners very friendly and accommodating. The property was very well kept and had everything we needed.

The guesthouse is situated above the city and that’s great because you have a beautiful view over the lagoon. At arriving, you park your car at the house and get a remote, to open the gate. We got checked-in and shown our apartment. The kitchen is fully equipped and you can find everything you need there. There is also a...

The house is really comfortable and nice, placed in a hill just in front of the Knysna bay. Bedrooms are quite big with a excellent bed. Its terrace is a very nice place to waste the time watching the landscape with a cold bier.

While at a conference in Knysna we stayed here for 4 nights. What a treat ! The views are spectacular and the place is clean and fresh and beautifully decorated. Close to everything but far enough off the main road so that the only noise is that of the frogs and birds. Henriette was wonderfully helpful and I think this...

This is a great place to stay at Knysna. You have a perfect view at the Lagoon. The Owners and the staff are very friendly and helpful. You can reach everythig perfectly from the Big Tree House. And, and this is only a sitenote, the WiFi was one of the best I had in RSA.

If there is availability- BOOK NOW! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay- this is really a gem. Patricia, our host, was so accommodating and attentive. The accommodation felt like home away from home- providing all the comforts one could possible need, even baking pans and measuring cups! Thanks Patricia- we'll be back!
