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 😀

After the very warm welcome we were impressed by the large, bright and modern room. From our balcony we had a wonderful view to Knysna Heads. For breakfast wenn were asked to choose between different beverages, eggs, bread, cereals, joghurts... We didn't find anything to improve.

Greatly located B&B. Situated at the heights of Knysna. The hosts were really friendly and the service was excellent, as well as the breakfast. I was in the place kind of in a rush and the place was very attentive and great to quickly accomodate me. I highly recommend it.

My family stayed Christmas Eve for one night and South Villa was amazing. They deserve their high trip advisor star rating and I would recommend staying there for sure!

The place was amazing, it felt like a home away from home. The professional behavior of the staff was a plus for us. Hope to visit the place again soon. It made our experience at Knysa a very pleasant one.
