“Lovely apartments”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We love Knysna and we also love staying at the Quays. This is the third time we have stayed at these apartments and this one was just as good as ever. Very secure and well stocked apartment with good views.

Room Tip: All apartments overlook the waterway as far as I am aware

The location is excellent. Views from the balcony are stunning. The unit is very clean and confortable. Very safe and secure. Would definitely recommend it to anybody. Worth every cent. Can’t wait to return.

This was our 4th stay at Knysna Quays and we have recommended it to friends who are now also regulars ! It has a great situation on the canals and Knysna itself is a picturesque stop along the Garden Route.
Our previous stays were overnight stays with friends in a 2-bedroom apartment with bedrooms and lounge overlooking the canals.
This time (a five-day stay) we had a 1-bedroom apartment (No. 19) with the bedroom overlooking the parking lot (quiet at night despite this) but with the lounge and balcony overlooking the canal. The apartments are clean, well-furnished, spacious and what a delight to watch the yachts sail past as we sat on our balcony !
Secure underground parking, shops and restaurants within 100 metres - a sublime experience. We'll be back ! Thanks, Kenny and Jolene, who have always made us feel welcome.

What a place for the price. You can pop up to the supermarket get some food, washing powder and a couple of beers and relax. The views are fantastic, you could be on the riviera anywhere in the world. Very close by are lots of restaurants and town is a very close walk. a Big thumbs up.

Ticks all the boxes. Close to shops, but quiet in the evening, house rules say no excessive noise after 10.00 pm. Easy to find, spacious, well furnished, great views, and lovely balcony. Clean, tidy, remote keys, underground parking with defined space. Literally 20 seconds to restaurants and shops, but whilst sitting in the apartment, you could be miles away. Knysna is a fantastic, beautiful town. We stayed at 4 Knysna Quays and wwould recommed to anyone, without the slightest hesitation. Perfect.

I spent a week in a one bedroom apartment at Knysna Quays earlier this month. I could not have been more pleased with my choice. The apartment that I stayed in (#11 in the South Quay) was clean with everything in good working order. This particular apartment was on the second floor and had the bedroom overlooking the parking lot so noise was a modest problem on Friday and Saturday night. The two and three bedroom apartments(which appear to have two stories) looked like they all had bedrooms overlooking the water where the boats are moored. I felt very safe and secure in this locale.
I thought I received great value for a rate of ZAR 700/night.
Communication by e-mail directly with this property was first rate.
Check in and check out at Molo Africa was easy.
I thought this location was ideal for my week long stay in Knysna because it is a short walk up Gray Street to the Main Road and there isn't nearly as much traffic and noise on the Knysna Waterfront as there is along the N2.
Chatters is a pizza place on Gray Street that has Internet access available until 10:00 P.M.(They are closed on Mondays).
Post Net on the Main Road is a good choice for Internet access during daylight hours(They are closed on Sundays).
There was no land line phone in my apartment but there were multiple public phones throughout the Knysna Waterfront.
I opted to have dinner each night along Gray Street at three restaurants where the clientele were mostly locals rather than tourists as opposed to eating at the multiple restaurants at the Knysna Waterfront. I enjoyed the pizza at Chatters and the seafood at Anchorage on three occasions at each establishment. I had ribs at Olde's that were tasty.
I would highly recommend trying Mitchells which is the locally brewed beer. I liked both the Bosuns(a stout) and the lighter Forresters.

These apartments are brilliantly located at the waterfront in Knysna and thoughtfully and tastefully furnished. Washing machine, tumble dryer, filter coffee machine, DVD player with DVDs supplied, and much more. Beautifully furnished and they even give you free sherry!
