we stayed here for a few nights with our baby and loved it, very spacious and private. the cottage has everything we wanted, bathroom, big bedroom, fully equiped kitchen and a nice living room with tv.
the terrace was amazing with lots of green in your own garden with braai.
we were here in october and unfortunately the weather was nog good but a lot to do anyway.

We rent 3 cottages for 2 nights with family and friends. Each unit is very spacious and practical. Linen and towels included. Bathrooms are clean : shower + bath + wc, en-suite in the main bedroom ; shower only -it's sufficient !- and wc next to the second bedroom. Well equiped kitchen. Table+chairs of good quality inside and on the terrasse, braai... Of course the possibility to use the very close Adventure Water-Park was greatly appreciated by the kids (and would have been by adults but the water was far too cold at this time of year). We had a good too short time.

Visited during April 2012 and received a very spacious two bedroom six sleeper. Well located within walking distance from Water Park that the kids love.

The price is reasonable and includes free entry to the water park. Mountain bikers paradise and located within a kilometre from many mountain biking trails. Staffs are friendly, helpful and Cottages are clean and well maintained.

I strongly recommend Coral Tree cottages as a compromise on the same level as Pinelake Marine and Montague springs in terms of fun and activity for kids. I was there with six kids between ages eight and thirteen and they were active at Coral Tree.

Huge cottage (by British standards) with well furnished rooms and very well equiped kitchen. The weather was not great when we were there (Oct 2010) but still plenty to do. Perfect location, very welcoming hosts. They had few guests when we were there so no breakfast, but we were recommended a great local place for a breakfst treat. Lots to do in the area - enjoyed walking with Cheetahs, quad-biking, Knysna, beaches etc. The cottage was very comfortable with lovely big beds and good shower in our cottage. Too cold to try our pool! Would defintely stay again.

During a trip through South-Africa, we have stayed two nights in a spacious two bedroom two bathroom cottage at Coral Tree. It was the second time we have used this accommodation. The first time was in October 2004. We were received by Shirley and Gary Redman in a friendly style. The cottage was very spacious and had a private pool. Breakfast is optional at an extra charge. Entrance to Adventure Land was included in the rate. Coral Tree Cottages is situated between Plettenberg Bay and Knysna and is an excellent base to explore the surrounding area, Tsjitjikama Park included. There are no restaurants or pubs within walking distance and you have to take the car when you go out for dinner, but that wasn't a problem for us. Plettenberg Bay is within driving distance and has many facilities. Shirley and Gary did everything to make us welcome during our stay. It is clearly a family business and their three children (14, 8 and 5) seem to be very used to sharing the grounds with guests as well as the three dogs running around cheerfully. Many kids in South-Africa would be very pleased to grow up in such a beautiful area and wonderful climate. It will be another couple of years before I go back to South-Africa, because there are so many more countries to visit. But when, I return, Coral Tree is definitely worth a third visit. And after a conversation with Shirley, I am very interested whether the Redman's will still be running the place in a couple of years. Running a place like that is hard work, even when the kids grow up and get more involved in the business. But Shirley and Gary are doing a good job there.

We stayed here for two nights during our tour of South Africa. The cottages were well spread out and not overlooked. Each came with its own BBQ together with its own charcoal, fire lighters and logs, which were cleaned on a daily basis.
Whilst the cottages were well appointed we were a little disappointed as there was no shower. However, there was a bath with plenty of hot water. The cottage and kitchen equipment were spotlessly clean, even though there was the odd bug. (to be expected given the beautiful surroundings).
We enjoyed our stay here and the opportunity to cook our own food and enjoy the outside space. There are a lot of facilities which would clearly suit families.
There was no air con however this was not a problem when we visited in March. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for a peaceful few days.

We spent a lovely few days at Coral Tree Cottages

Loved:
- Privacy of each cottage, i.e. each cottage has own garden area which is enclosed by pretty hedges and trees
- large spacious bedroom
- Maxwell Williams crockery in kitchen! (Kitchen cupboards had comprehensive inventory!)
-Trustworthy staff (in haste to leave, forgot my earrings and expensive watch in room one day and was concerned that cleaning staff might swipe it - i needn't be concerned!)
-Daily cleaning service - cottage and breakfast dishes + braai area
-Small extra touches - salt, pepper, coffee, tea, sugar and milk provided on arrival - this is not normal practice at self catering units
- Shirley and Gary (the owners) - very pleasant couple with great kids! Envy these kids for having such beautiful surroundings to grow up in!
- Free access to "Adventure Land" - unfortunately, we didnt get to use, but I'm sure had our child been a bit older, it would have been a real hit!
-Kiddies play area (outside owners home, so not sure whether for private use, but they didnt mind when asked whether our child could play there in fact their litte 4 yr old said "everyone plays with my toys and then they break them" - despite this, he still didn't mind sharing!

Things that were not that great:-
- Bathroom only had a bath and handshower (we stayed in Kingfisher)
- Sofa in lounge uncomfortable

Despite the negatives, we had a lovely stay and our 1.5 year old had an absolute ball!
