We had a wonderful stay here, spending 2 nights one of the family cottages. Our hosts, Patrick and Helen, were great. While eating breakfast, Patrick gave us good tips on what to do in the area and where to eat for dinner. The location is also great, and very close to Leisure Island. I was actually able to jog to...

We stayed in the self catering cottage at the pool and we had an amazing time. Patrick made a braai for us and we watched Champions League football in the honesty bar. And we got excellent tips for day trips around Knysna. We felt like staying at a friends place. Would go there again and again.

It was just as good as we remember, Patrick and Helene are great hosts, they know Knysna well and are willing to help and advise where asked. Our cottage (the smaller of the two) was spotlessly clean, very nicely decorated and exceedingly comfortable, as...

Only a short stop for one night, but one we kept in mind. A very nice room in a beautiful Lofge, surrounded by a wonderful garden. Very quiet - a good place to stay. What we liked very much was the nice contact to the hosts who make a fantastic job. We felt like home and enjoyed also the information...

We selected Stannards after the beautiful pictures of the guest house in the website. When we arrived we found the place even more beautiful and poetic than we expected. We had a cottage for four people, two rooms with private bathroom. The decor was colorful, vibrant and accurate. The friendly owner has prepared a braai at the pool just for...

Each room has a small terrace with chairs and a table and, if you are lucky, you will overlook the beautiful garden and pool. There is a feeling of tranquility, and much...

The Stannards Guest Lodge is an outstanding place to relax and experience the area around Knysna. The rooms are furnished with love and were always clean. The owners were very welcoming and gave us some tips how to make the most of our time in Knysna. Buffallo bay and the Knysna heads are a must-go. We spent two amazing days...
