Wonderful experience with lovely hosts who seem to love what they are doing. The rooms are very pleasant with a great patio to enjoy wine and read. We received helpful travel advice and they made reservations at a great restaurant that we would never have found on our own. This is one place that I wish I could give a...

Stayed here for 2 nights in Pelican room. Stunning views over Knysna lagoon and marina. Natalie and Kate were amazing hosts and made us feel totally welcome and at home. They recommended some great things to do and their 2 restaurant recommendations were also superb. We will return!! Thanks Natalie and Kate.

We were greeted like old friends & even treated to a glass of wine. Kate & Nathalie recommended walking routes, restaurants, tours, beaches and basically planned our stay for us - they reserved...

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.

Lovely large room with terrace and a good breakfast. Charming, friendly and helpful hosts, Kate and Nathalie. It's close to the village centre albeit with a bit of a climb if you're walking. Our hosts booked all our restaurants for us and there is a reliable and cheap taxi service for the evenings. Knysna has nearby great beaches and a...

Breakfasts were prepared to order and made a great start to the day.

Double Dutch was probably our best stop whilst travelling along the Garden Route. Kate and Nathalie are friendly hosts and make you feel more as if you are entering their home rather than a guest house. With lovely little touches, from a complimentary drink upon arrival to Nespresso facilities in the room, lovely breakfast, everything makes you feel completely relaxed....
