We cannot fault this place. Amazingly beautiful location, set high above the peninsula in peaceful well kept gardens. The rondavels are luxurious but homely all at the same time. There is also a lovely pool with incredible views and the beds are extremely comfortable. There are 2 lovely bathrooms and an outdoor shower, everything is cleaned daily. We lit a... More

We stayed one week over Easter in one of the rondawels. We were a family with a baby and my parents. Views are stunning on the Knysna lagoon and there is an outside table with chairs (and a big umbrella) on the lawn. The doors of the place can open really wide so you feel like you are living to...

We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived, because it was more wonderful than imagined. The views are incredible and the rondavels are so lovely, with everything you could possibly need. Unfortunately, we weren't there long enough to enjoy all the amenities, but will definitely book there again in the future.

We were two couples and Nirvana was just what we wanted for self catering accommodation. We had stayed several times before in Knysna but on this occasion we want a little more privacy and seclusion.....just what Nirvana offers. The Rondavels seem a little quirky at first but in practice they provide spacious, cool accommodation. Both bedrooms are en-suit with one... More

A Stunning location. Perfect hide away but still close enough to be convenient! More than comfortable accommodation with everything you may need. A relaxing atmosphere with breathtaking views of the lagoon.

We were lucky enough to spend both Christmas and New Year with Madi on her hilltop hideaway with its wonderful views over the Knysna lagoon. Tranquillity and homeliness were the order of the stay and everyone in our party wants to return as soon as possible. We were even treated to veg from the garden and fresh cut roses. The... More

From the moment we arrived, everything was perfect. Most beautiful setting with mesmerizing views. We stayed in the deck house for 9 days and it catered for our every need.
