Very nice and comfortable place! Great view of the city and the lagoon and the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom were perfect. The location is very good and Kitty was really lovely and she helped us a lot in figuring out the best things to do during our stay! Highly recommended.

We've just spent two weeks in the Featherbed Studio and had a most enjoyable stay. Kitty was very helpful with information on the best places to visit and restaurants to eat in. The pool was beautifully clean and the garden was a little oasis of calm.

Thanx to kitty for the hospitality and friendliness. The apartment was very close to all our favourite places. Loved that it was super clean. The view was amazing from the balcony and kitchen, morning swims were great, especially the fact that the water was warm. Will definitely be back.

Enjoyed our stay in Knysna, host Kitty very welcoming and informactive about local attractions and services. We ended up staying longer due to our satisfaction with everything. Only improvement would be to location of bath, which is apparently on the to do list anyway. Thanks Kitty for an enjoyable stay.
