    Houseboat Myrtle is a self-contained cottage on the water. Anchored in the Knysna Lagoon, it's just a two minute dinghy ride away from the Knysna Waterfront.

    Myrtle is one of the original Knysna houseboats and has a lovely wood finish, both inside and out. With its two decks, it’s perfect for lazy days floating on the lagoon. From the deck you can enjoy views of the lagoon, the quays and the Knysna Heads. The decks are also perfect for relaxed sundowners, and if you’re up early you’ll find the sunrise quite rejuvenating.

    The houseboat sleeps four guests on two double beds. The private main bedroom has its own deck. The boat has a kitchen nook with a stove and fridge and a hot shower and toilet. If you’re not keen on staying in, the restaurants at the Waterfront are easily accessible....

The service we received could not be faulted: Julia went out of her way to answer questions about the property and helped enormously with the booking process. When we arrived, Julia patiently explained water facilities, gas, the dinghy etc- and even came back especially to show us how to make up the extra bed! We (family of 4, children aged... more

My husband booked Houseboat Myrtle for myself and our two young children as a stop over on our way up the South Coast. I was reluctant at first but my mind was quickly changed. The boat is anchored permanently not far from a private dock, and it takes about 100m on a small boat to get there. Julian (owner) was... more
