My sister and I spent a long weekend at Knysna Quays in one of self catering units overlooking the channel at the end of August, we were pleasantly surprised at how big the unit was and very comfortable.

This is our 3rd time at the quays and we will keep on returning as its location is perfect. We stayed in the 2 bedroom with our 3 year old who loved the warm space. Restaurants are just steps away. The staff are very helpful. A well oiled machine.

Booking and domestic staff were fantastic, friendly and very helpful. Walking distance to many great restaurants, tour and cruise office and speciality shopping. We started off in apartment 18. It was beautiful, but the bathrooms were very tired. We had to move due to faulty plumbing, toilets wouldn't flush and bath didn't empty. Apartment 3 was also clean and lovely.... More

This is the best location in Knysna, you can walk to shops, restaurants, main shopping centre and even to Thesen island and get a bit of exercise at the same time.

For anyone looking for genuine self-catering luxury in a prime Waterfront location in Kysna this is it. Secure underground parking, next to shops and restaurants.
