Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Could do with a microwave for guests to use in evening. Tea, coffee and milk was not replenished daily. Bath was not cleaned. Took too small for a family of 4-sleeper couch mattress needs replacing-way too thin.

Constructive criticism We felt slightly rushed on day of check out , Malume is a very punctual man and looks very strict , he smiles a lot . We felt a bit monitored to rush...

We had a lovely stay at the guesthouse which is perfectly located on Leisure Island within walking distance of the lagoon. Breakfast was delicious and everyone was very accommodating. They also have an awesome pool which our children enjoyed. We will definitely stay again, thank you.

Best location in the most favorable island in Knysna, very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Small room, no air-condition, no telephone in the room and limited privacy in the room for having glass front door of the room.

Very relaxing atmosphere . Nice, big pool area with enough loungers and couches. The owner lives on the premises and is always ready to assist you. Guesthouse is only a 5min walk from the Knysna Lagoon.

This was our first trip to Knysna and we had no clue in which area to stay. African Breeze Guesthouse was the best choice we could have made! Friendly and informative staff, central to everything, delicious breakfast and everything else you could ask for! We should have stayed longer, and we'll be back!

We so much enjoyed our stay at this lovely guesthouse! The rooms where clean and had everything available we needed. The service staff was always friendly and the breakfast delicious, though the hot part took quite a while to be served. But: “There is no rush in Africa!“ :-) The owner was also very hospitable and gave us helpful advices...
