Was a great stay. Rooms look fabulous, and the location is great for some quiet morning walks. And the breakfast was very tasty, not too much and speedily prepared! Definitely recommended to anyone in Knysna

Back after four years i was longing to sip the many pleasure this tiny isle has to offer. Great, relaxing walks, gentle living, gardens, nature reserves, the lagoon, the nice beach at Bollard, the view over the Heads, everything so tranquil, and beautiful. People here are not hurried, seem to enjoy the beauties and so the living is easy. I... More

The guest house is situated in a peaceful location on leisure Island. The rooms are elegant, spacious,and well equipped. The owners could not have been more welcoming. The place is an absolute joy with good outside space. I would recommend African breeze anyone. We will certainly stay there on our next visit to Knyzna. Robert Finlay

Loved our room right in front of the shared deck and pool. Room and bathroom was nice and big and we really enjoyed our stay. Our host was also very friendly and helpful in finding a proper restaurant for the evening. Oh, and the free bikes that were available for exploring the island was also a nice touch.

The Guest House is situated in a quiet and peaceful area. We received a warm welcome from the owner. Beautiful location. Spacious, clean and well furnished room. Excellent and rich breakfast with eggs, cheese, vegetables, sausages, panckakes, tea, coffee, jam, bread, butter, etc ... A 3-minute drive from the Heads and 5 minutes from the waterfront. Excellent value for money.... More

After researching stays at Knysna, we decided to stay at Leisure Isle owing to the proximity to the Knysna Heads. Although not having a direct view of the water/beach, it is a short 2 min walk from the guesthouse. However, having your car to reach this destination is a sine qua non. If you love morning walks/jogs, walking on the... More

Had a pleasant stay for 4 nights. Paris, when you see her, is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good if a little on the slow side. ~The bedroom was very nicely presented although bathrooms could do with a little updating. Be aware that this property is not currently graded 5 star as advertised on the website. It fits... More

We stayed at this B&B in November 2013. The location was close to many attractions, the rooms were clean and well appointed. The staff and proprietor at the B&B were all very attentive and very friendly. I would recommend this property to anyone traveling the Garden Route.

The only thing was that our 3 year old had to sleep on a normal couch, for him this was fine bur for older children not so convenient. Pool... More
