This is the best place to stay at Kynsna. Anyone who's doing the Garden Route must make a pit stop and live here. The hospitality and breathtaking view make it very tough for anyone to leave. They provide cycles-one can use them and cycle down the entire beautiful road overlooking the lagoon.

Very helpful and friendly staff, lovely big room we were at the back so no view but on the plus side cooler in the afternoons. Honesty bar well stocked and fairly priced. Use of free bicycles much appreciated. Leisure Island very peaceful location yet close to town and golf courses.

To reach it turn left as soon as you reach the end of the causeway and just keep going until you see it on the right after about...

Absolutely impressed with costumer service. So polite, gentle, friendly and helpful. The property itself is an oasis of calm, perfect place for those who want to escape from the busy and noisy cities. Room very specious with great lagoon view, kept clean with little touches such as chocolate, tea selection and biscuits. The lodge itself has also bikes and kayaks...
