From our first contact with Agnieszka and Margo to saying goodbye after our stay, they could not have done more to make our trip to Knysna more enjoyable. They answsered my many questions about our trip and were more than forthcoming with information and recommendations about our itinerary.
On arrival, they made us feel like long lost family and this continued throughout our stay. The accommodation was really cosy, the food hearty and the hospitality very warm.
Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t great while we were there with quite thick fog. They even provided regular weather reports. Sadly our boat tour around Knysna heads was cancelled due to bad weather. Not to worry, Agnieszka and Margo provided a repertoire of alternatives to entertain us and were more than happy to make arrangements on our behalf.
They even checked a dodgy number that kept calling my mobile phone and confirmed that it was a scam.
I can’t thank Agnieszka and Margo enough for making us feel welcome and would not hesitate to recommend staying at Heron Close for a personal experience.
