Excellent house with all amenities, a great British flair and an incredible host, Tess. Beautiful view at the Knysna Lagoon, very quiet neighborhood. We felt like home and will come back for longer when visiting SA next time.

Out of all of the accomodation that we stayed in during our recent trip, this was undoubtedly the best. Spacious, comfortable accomodation, delightful host and superb in house staff. The breakfast was delicious, catering for diverse tastes, the pool and hot tub overlooking the lagoon was the icing on the cake! Wholeheartedly recommended!
