I was travelling on business by myself and found this the best place ever!! Marion and David were so welcoming and a lot of fun!! This place is very safe which was a big plus for me seeing as I was travelling alone. I had a very nice unit with a big bathroom, a kitchenette, lounge and bedroom. I had... More

The accommodation was excellent, the location was excellent, everything about our stay was way above our expectations and we cannot thank our hosts Marion and David enough for their wonderful hospitality, having recommended The Armadillo Studios to everyone we know I suggest booking early as we had trouble booking a year in advance!

Great review - thank you so much! Good advice regarding 'booking early'. As we only have 3 guest studios, they tend to get snapped-up quickly - especially during high season. Hope to see you all back here one day soon. More

We stayed for four nights in the two bedroom apartment. The accommodation is clean, spacious and the hosts ensure that you have everything that you need. The apartment also stayed at a nice cool temperature even when it was very hot outside. The location is peaceful, the gardens excellent and pool was loved by all of the family. A five... More

Many thanks to Marion and David for such a wonderful stay. The studio was more than what we wanted and your garden is absolutely beautiful, the location is perfect and we couldn't have asked to stay with more accommodating people! We are looking forward to our next visit! Thanks again, Luke & Kayleigh

Wonderful stay in a delightful spot up on the hills outside Knysna town. The two-bedroom apartment we rented for five days was a joy - comfortable, well equipped and spacious with its own patio for breakfast in the sunny, lush gardens. Marion and David are exceptional hosts, welcoming, friendly and generous with their time (and wine!). The best chunk of... More

Well planned and spacious accommodation with a very attractive garden with a swimming in nice area. It is surrounded by mature trees so looks as though there aren`t any other houses nearby. Lots of interesting birds to watch. Very friendly and hospitable owners. Would highly recommend.

This is an excellent place to stay with marvellous hosts. Any negative reviews will be from someone local with a grudge. Do ignore them. We had a great time. So many reviewers have said all that we could repeat here.

We stayed 2 nights in the studio 3. The location is convenient, and in a quiet area. The garden is beautiful, and the view from the upper deck and dinning room is very nice. The studio is clean, very well equipped. The 2nd room w/ twin beds is a bit tight. For us, that like to sleep in the dark,... More
