We stayed in South Villa for one night on our way to Hermanus. What a lovely guest house. The owners were very helpful even booking a restaurant for us and then giving advice on our trip to Hermanus. The breakfast was lovely and fresh and the rooms are spotless - ten out of ten.

Room was exceptionally clean but a little bit on the small side. Breakfast on the deck was delightful. Hostess was friendly and knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble, including carrying our bags up to the room

One of our favourite places we stayed at during our trip. Lovely views from the balcony, very comfortable room and great breakfast. A 15 minute walk took you down to the Waterfront. Try the fish and chips at Freshline Fisheries, wonderful !

we enjoyed the excellent service, the breakfast and the rooms. Helpful and very friendly owner and staff. Sleeping by open windows you hear the traffic noise a bit. We will come again when travelling at the garden route.

Wish we could have stayed longer. This was such a beautiful property overlooking the lagoon at Knysna. The staff were amazing, so kind and helpful. The room was large, bright and airy with a lovely balcony with a view. The breakfast was delicious! All in all, such a lovely place 😀
