My wife and I spent 3 nights in the couples luxury tented accommodation. The view from the wooden deck is amazing and tranquil. Homtini pass runs past the farm, so there is occasional vehicle noise, but nothing unbearable.
It is tented accommodation, so if it is windy at night, expect to be kept awake. The tent is very tidy and the bed was very comfortable. The self catering amenities were adequate. Out gas braai did not work, but fortunately we were provided with a gas skottel skaar.
It is close to Millwood Forest reserve and a short drive to Knysna. Great if you don't want to be in Knysna, but in close proximity to the attractions.
