I had a wonderful stay at Armadillo studios. The apartments are newly renovated, super clean and look very decorative with brandnew beds and furniture! I enjoyed swimming in the pool, taking naps in the beautiful garden and drinking African Rooibos Tea on my terrace! Knysna was the perfect place to stay for a few days and take daytrips. I especially...

We stayed here in Jan '17 and found it to be a great find. Well equipped studio and a super pool and garden area for relaxing. It is situated in a very secure residential area only a couple of minutes from town. A great place to chill out or use as a base for touring the area. Definitely recommended. Simple...

All facilities were explained to us and we were shown the lovely gardens and pool area which are in immaculate condition. Everything is as described, it's clean, well equipped and it's highly recommended. Well located for all Knysna, Brenton, Wilderness...

We stayed there for 3 nights during Christmas time and it was a very pleasant stay. Location is great, an upscale residential area only a short drive to the waterfront and all the nice restaurants. Our studio is of a decent size; the bathroom is spacious, the bed very comfy with lots of cushions. The garden is well-maintained, a perfect...

Beautiful spot, modern and well equipped. Peaceful garden and comfortable rooms. Great pool. We were on our honeymoon and stayed here on our way to our final destination, could happily have stayed a bit longer.

My wife and I stayed at the Armadillo studio while travelling the Garden Route. We were looking for a base in Knysna that offered us everything we needed - high quality accommodation, the option to cook for ourselves if we wished and a peaceful setting. That is exactly what we found with The Armadillo Studio. The room, garden and pool...

Great hosts and a fantastic property to stay for the holidays. Absolute privacy if you need it and a well kept, clean room. Modern and well thought out space. It feel as if the hosts have lived in the room and thought of everything you might need.

This was our second visit and it was as good as the first. because we have become friends with the owners Marion and Dave it was like visiting friends rather than a business. This time we had the large two bed apartment which would be fantastic for a family. We elected to have breakfast provided rather than take up the...

“All units looked fantastic, there are three and all are different sizes. I had the smallest unit (it is still big) which is perfect for two people. The bigger units have a kitchen so if you want to do your own cooking then you would need to go for them.”
