The hostesses were friendly, warm and cook a great breakfast. The view straight from the room is amazing. The room was well-maintained and had all the facilities required. All-in-all a great experience.

Kate and Natalie were fantastic hosts - our accommodation had the most fantastic view, truly comfy bed and the most fabulous bathroom. Knysna was stunning and the recommended restaurant and boat trip were both brilliant. Would definitely return.
