Good location, warm and helpful owner who pointed us in the right direction, great breakfast. You will need a car as a little out of town but has secure parking and in a nice area of town with secure parking. Head up to the heads for sunset and a hilly walk around circles in the forest

A good choice for a first visit to Knysna. Clean but small pool. Breakfasts enormous. Host genial and helpful. An excellent base from which to explore this part of the Garden Route. Amazing value for money!

We chose Knysna as a recommended stop on the Garden Route - and how right this was. The welcome and information from Frederick was great and we made the most of our short stay. The pool was great for a quick dip and relax in the sunshine. Dinner recommendation ticked all the boxes and an excellent breakfast was served before... More

My friend and I stayed in this nice guesthouse for one night. We moved into the "Guinea Fowl Room". It was comfortable and very clean. The bathroom was pretty small, but this wasn't a problem. You can also find a little swimming pool with clean water. Frederik, the host, was very friendly and helpful. After a quiet night in the... More

Although we had the small appartment in the souterrain with no views and only a little space to move inside we enjoyed our stay here very much! the host was very friendly, he even organized a dinner reservation for us which was not easy at Christmas! Also the breakfast was very good!

We spent three nights in this guesthouse in the Oyster Catcher Room. As noted by the other reviewers, the owner Fredrick is very warm, welcoming and provides a lot of information on what to do/where to eat. The room was spacious, beds comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Great value for money !
