This place was everything I hoped for and more! Real luxury in a beautiful house that was furnished tastefully and comfortably. From our balcony we watched whales dancing in the sea. There was easy access to the largely empty sandy beach down a few steps through the garden. Breakfast and was well-cooked and plentiful and there were several good restaurants... More

it was a lovely stay there, our hosts and the staff around was very friendly, our suite (Neptune) was just amazing! Situated on the top level we've had a great view over the beach. Breakfast was served in the dining room in front of the beach where we could see whale in the meantime. There weren't many other tourists in... More

Exceptional, stunning, welcoming and amazing. The owners of Xanadu have got it absolutely 100% right. Paying extra for the presidential suite was perhaps the best decision i took duirng our 1 month in South Africa - we will always stay there when visiting SA. We are both very hard customers to please and this place is honestly worth making any... More

Lovely hosts, and a breathtaking setting. Very comfortable bed and breakfast. This website is forcing me to make my review atleast 200 characters. That's annoying. Complete opposite of our lovely stay at Xanadu

I go to the George/ Knysna area every 8 weeks on business (and have for the past 2 and a half years), and stay at Xanadu every time. It is so luxurious, quiet, relaxing and beautiful that I don't even want to look elsewhere. Highly, highly recommended.

Overnight stop on route to Port Elizabeth. Spent about 5 min. looking for correct turn off. (I had no GPS) After slow response to knocking on arrival had no further complaints. Room extremely well equipped and comfortable with good views. Will return again when in area. HIGHLY recommended with good breakfast.

My dear Friend, This establishment is rather large , best plan is not to knock ,chances are that this will not be heard , rather use the electric BELL at the front door next time!! Our front door stands wide open most of the time , feel free to just walk right in. Regards, Albert. More

We stayed in a large suite with a spectacular view of the sea--lovely deck and very elegant furnishings. However, we were there in late June and it was very chilly. There was a wall heating/AC unit in the bedroom but it was noisy. The second room of the suite with bathroom and dressing room was huge, unheated, and very chilly.... More

Dear Valerie, Sorry that you felt cold , as you mentioned the A/C do heating . but don't adjust it to full blast . If the fan is operated at a lower speed it is almost silent. What about the electric blanket on the bed, did you make use of it? If you had mentioned any request for additional heating... More
