Lovely place with beautiful views over the lake. The hosts were super friendly and helpful and the breakfast was amazing. The thing we liked best was the surprise when we got home after our dinner in the room :) :)

Very welcoming and helpful hosts. Excellent breakfast!! Room could do with a small fridge. Only issue is that the road below the B&B is quite noisy with a few trucks in the morning. Other than that, excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely small, intimate guest house with fantastic views of the lagoon. We were two couples, staying two nights. We were warmly welcomed by Kevin and immediately were made to feel at home. We had no specific requests but it was apparent that every effort would have been made to accommodate any we might have had. Had a lovely evening cruise...

This lovely manor sits in a lush private garden setting with a beautiful view right onto the Knysa inlet and through the 'heads' out to sea. The photos online do not do this place justice. You walk out onto a very large and beautifully decorated raised common verandah from an artist and craft enspired lounge and dining room. It's just...

We stayed 1 night only which basically didn't really do justice: Neither do this lovely guesthoue nor to nice Knysna. However, the house is so nicely furnished, the hospitality of Cornell and Kevin is coming straight from the heart! What do you need more? May be a little more distance to the mainroad?
