I have repeated this review as there seem to be two Tripadvisor entries for the apartments at Knysna Quays. I am sure they both refer to the same rental apartments.
Stayed for 2 nights with friends in a two bed roomed apartment which has everything you could possibly need to make your visit comfortable. We had been travelling for 11 days through the country with many one night stopovers so we had loads of washing to do and the washing machine and tumble drier worked overtime!
We had stayed before with other friends so knew it would be the perfect place to stay for our ex South African friend now living in Australia. He loves boats and yachts and is a real water man! So our position overlooking the waterways was perfect.
Our only complaint we had was when the people below us made a fire for their braai in their big open braai. We were smoked off our balcony and had to keep the doors closed to avoid all the smoke.Then afterwards we had to open all doors to get rid of the smoky smell in the apartment. The whole event seemed to take forever as they first made a huge log fire and then added briquettes and then they only started braai-ing the meat after a long, long time.
Luckily it was September and still chilly so it wasn't too much of a problem to keep the doors closed but in midsummer it could be a horrible experience as the smoke literally comes straight up from below. There should only be closed Weber braais allowed or built in barbecues with chimneys to avoid this.
