“Good value for money”

We had a short stay in Knysna, but enjoyed our time here. The cottage is very large with 3 separate bedrooms and a huge livin room. Views from the living room and deck down onto Knysna lagoon are amazing and the owners are really nice. However a decent scrub and some more housekeeping and maybe a little less decorating would be well appreciated.

All in all would stay here again.
