A family member fell through the hammock which was obviously rotten through wear and tear,fortunately she wasn't badly injured... More

The room is very large and enabled us to store our kit for the weekend. The staff were very helpful and stored my mountain bike in the garage for safe keeping while we were... More

Excellent prices at this 5 star guesthouse from 1 May onwards. We were upgraded to a de luxe room with quality finishings and a pool right outside our front door. Breakfast was very good and staff and owners helpful and friendly.

We stayed at African Breeze as part of a short road trip of the Garden Route. Our room was upgraded and we absolutely loved the room. We ended up spending a very short time at the Guest House itself with a latish check in and a early departure to a wedding we had to attend. It is a beautiful house... More

African Breeze was a beautifully decorated guesthouse in a serene part of Knysna. The best part of the stay was definitely the host. Steve is an amazing host and makes you feel right at home.
