As expats spending their first Christmas in South Africa, we wanted to get away to somewhere special for a few days and Knysna Stays was highly recommended on Trip Advisor. When I called Lloyd he was amazing from our first conversation. He not only sold his Guest House but also sold the area to us - we booked straight away.
We then had a couple of conversations (including Skype) where Lloyd recommend places including Simola for Christmas day lunch but also suggested booking early - we are glad we took his advice.
Rose was fantastic and welcomed us like we were old friends on our arrival. Rose and the team were delighted to help out in anyway they could.
Lloyd is not on site all the time but made a point of being present everyday during breakfast. He took a personal interest in your plans offering any help you might require in making plans or fine tuning your arrangements. Lloyd obviously loves looking after his guest and works hard at it but he also seems to love golf and can offer great advice on local courses.
Knysna is quite a small town and Knysna Stays is towards the edge of town but within easy reach of the main street or Thiesen Island/Waterfront.
The room we had was great. Plenty of space for the 2 of us. The balcony looked out towards the lagoon with the sun setting straight ahead of us. It was lovely sitting on the balcony late at night, just relaxing and cooling down.
Breakfast was great, with Rose making sure you had everything you need. Christmas morning was special.
We would happily recommend Knysna Stays to others - but not if they wanted to go at the same time as us in case we couldn't get in.
I only marked the sleep quality down slightly as the mattress is firm which is more down to my preference rather than any issues.
Thank you Lloyd, Rose & Team
