We stayed there in April 2014 with my family and booked the 3 rooms of the big chalet. It was lovely and the main living room dining area is separate to the rooms.. You have to go up through a lovely garden to get there. The Easter bunny even came up there on the knysna hill for our daughter. The... More

Zauberberg is like a home away from home, which is why I have gone back many times to stay! The rooms are very nice with amazing views over Knysna lagoon. It's like staying in a little sanctuary whilst at the same time being close enough to town and other activities in and around Knysna. What I like best about Zauberberg... More

Little to add to a well deserved five-green-spot place. We enjoyed very much our stay despite the bad weather in a beautiful garden kept by nice people. The Knysna area is definitely worth the journey, and the Zauberberg the perfect base camp for exploring it. Alles ganz gut.

We had a great experience in Knysna while staying at Zauberberg Cottage. My family of 5 stayed for only one evening last week -- we all wished we could have stayed longer. The cottage features stunning views of the lagoon. It was a cool night and we enjoyed reading books in the living room warmed by the fireplace. The bedrooms... More

My wife and I, along with two toddlers spent a couple of days at Zauberberg Cottage in December last year. Our hosts, Angela and Chris were very friendly and accommodating and made us feel at home from the moment we collected the keys. We couldn't fault our stay in any way. Would happily spend our next holiday at Zauberberg.

Spent five nights at Zauberberg Cottage on a self-catering basis. We were halfway through our trip and this turned out to be an ideal spot to relax and chill out. The cottage is clean, comfortable and spacious. Location is great, up on the Heights, away from the bustle below, and with a lovely view of the lagoon. Explored the area... More

Nothing is too much trouble for these hosts. The location is beautiful, the rooms very comfortable, and breakfast is as fresh as anyone could want!
