Kate and Nathalie were born to do this! They are very welcoming, organised and helpful. We felt immediately at home. Rooms are wonderful with lots of little details that can compete with 5 star hotels. Service was impeccably, again with the 5 star feel to it. Breakfast was yummy as well! Location is a bit up hill ( as lots...

From the minute we arrived to when we left we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Natalie and Kate have a vast knowledge of the local area and emailed us two months before with a list of restaurants as they new they would be busy. Breakfast was excellent. Rooms had lovely views towards the Heads. Great place to...

Our fantastic experience started even as soon as we got to Double Dutch, it was easy to find and Kate sounded delighted that we had arrived through the intercom as we buzzed for access. The property is truly delightful, well appointed rooms and lovely grounds. However, it is Kate and Nathalie that really make it. They are wonderfully caring and...

Kate and Natalie are the most wonderful hosts at this beautiful B&B. The location is perfect just a short walk into Knysna (they have a reliable taxi service to bring you back and save you the walk up hill!) the views from the suites and the breakfast room are simply stunning. Clear views over the lagoon. The property is so...

The location is spectacular, overlooking the Knysna Bay. The room was outstanding - lots of little touches that made you think that the owners had put a lot of thought into the design. The breakfast was excellent. The service was out of this world - the owners had booked a table for us before we arrived at one of the...

This is a beautiful B&B, centrally located, with a magnificent view of the Knysna Heads. Our room, The Kingfisher, was spacious and comfortable; I highly recommend this room because of its uninterrupted view of the Heads. We felt at home within minutes of our arrival at Double Dutch. Kate and Nathalie are perfect hosts; they are warm, thoughtful and attentive,...

I booked the DD on the strength of reviews I had read not knowing knysna at all and certainly wasn't disappointed! We received the best welcome from Kate and Natalie that I've received anywhere - brilliant help in advising us where to visit and eat. The DD is in a great situation with fabulous views over the bay . It...

The energy and enthusiasm from Nathalie and Kate are first class and they couldn't have done any more to make our stay in Knysna better. They shared plenty of tips for good walks and restaurants and were quick to make bookings and reservations for us and they also provided beach towels and a sun shade for our trip to the...

After a busy first week in South Africa and a long drive from Hermanus we arrived in Knysna ready to relax.
