We stayed at #14 which was on waters edge. Well furnished. 4 bedrooms. Underfloor heating. Effective gas fire place. Comfortable bed. Wifi was a problem - no code available. Must be stunning in summer. Garage. Well equipped with water sport 'toys'.Good value.

We used to go to the waterfront for lunch. It is not a huge place, but is pleasant, with a great variety of restaurants. Nice marina views, free parking (lots of spots). We spent a weekend in Knysna and it was never crowded.
