Our stay in Knysna, although short, was thoroughly enjoyable and Prospect Cottage was an absolute hidden gem of holiday accommodation. The owners, Liz and Neville, have clearly gone above and beyond what is required to make their guests stay as comfortable as possible. We would highly recommend Prospext Cottage to anybody visiting Knysna.

Management response:

Hi there, It was lovely to see you again after all these years and to meet your wife and beautiful daughter. So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you and the rest of the family in the near future. Thanks for taking the time and trouble to give us such a glowing review. It is much appreciated....
