One of our stops during our Road trip around Garden Route. We had a fantastic welcome. The staff was very helpful and nice. The view from our bedroom was breathtaking! Fantastic breakfast! We totally recommend the Kanonkop Guest House, for families with kids or just for a peaceful weekend for 2. Love it! And we will be back.
