I was very skeptical as House Hammond had no sea view, but when I realised that no one in Knysna actually has a on the sea view, I sat back and enjoyed my stay. Our host, Michele, was friendly and really involved in our stay. A house that was built to accommodate people means you don't have that feeling of intruding into someone's space. The house is spacious and welcoming. Our rooms very individually decorated with great attention to detail. the area is safe and my colleague was able to go for a jog in the morning without any concerns. Michelle recommended a lovely local restaurant and you get the feeling she knows the right places.
I can't wait to go back and fall into my big comfortable bed and look at the moon through the sky light.
