My wife and I spent our honeymoon travelling down the Garden Route, and decided to stop over in Knysna. A friend had recommended Two Angels.
We stayed in the Lover's Nest cottage. Whilst not cheap, the location is truly superb. The cottage is itself an annex to the larger building and consequently feels very private and secluded. It has a balcony facing directly onto the lagoon, with stone steps that lead directly into onto the beach (or into the water, depending on the tide).
The rooms were clean and spotless. The view from the veranda is absolutely stunning, taking in one of the headways and a large part of the lagoon. Two Angels is on the opposite end of town, but this was a plus for us, and it's only 10 minutes to the Waterfront if you feel in the mood for some fine dining. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better, more romantic location in Knysna.
Karin, her partner, and their son Marlin were very helpful and friendly in the incredibly chilled and relaxed way that people are on the south coast. Karin was kind enough to lend us her book on hiking trails in the area, which came in very useful.
I think my only comment would be that there were quite a number of ants outside on the veranda, but these didn't seem to intrude into the unit.
Knyna itself is in a superb location for anyone who wants to do any hiking in the area. We hiked the Millwood Mines trail and the Jubilee trail in Millwood National Park, which are absolutely stunning.
