Beautiful accommodation with great hosts. Stunning views across Knysna out to the Indian Ocean. Would struggle to find a better place to stay. The breakfasts are simply superb. Fantastic lounge to chill with a glass of wine.

Overlooking the Bay of Knysna, this accommodation offers everything you can dream of. The warm welcome of Marilyn, a beautiful room with a big bathroom and floor heating, a nice balcony and the best surprise breakfast ever.
