A lovely guest house situated a few minutes drive out of town near the Eastern heads. We thought from the photographs that it might be a little cramped, but it proved to be a spacious place with open views across the valley it was very easy to find in a quiet residential area of lush vegetation. The owners and staff...

Dear Bertv, Thank you you very much for your positive review, it shows us that you liked it here and you enjoyed our hospitality. That is highly appreciated. The thing that worries us is that you apparently were under the impression that we are a 5 star guest house, which we are not. Maybe that could also be the reason...

We stayed for three nights and the guesthouse showed to be an excellent base to explore Knysna area. The location is quiet and safe and they offer an on-site parking. Very friendly owners and staff. Good braekfast. Rooms are spacy and well equipped. The outdoor pool is nice.

Stayed one night on our way to Cape Town. The guesthouse may not be in town, but it also means that it is in a quiet area away from traffic and the hustle and bustle of Knysna which can get very busy in season. It's close to a number of very good restaurants as well as the Heads area. Accommodation...

We really enjoyed our weekend in Knysna at the Country House. We had a big suite with an enormous bed, a double shower and a very big bath. The breakfast buffet was lovely and I loved our relaxing mornings sitting on the balcony. Knysna country house is like a home away from home.

the (quite) warm hospitality of the owners do not allow to give a good review of the structure. First of all, the guesthouse is not close to the coast, nor near Knisna, but in a peripheral residential area; but, ok, you can know this if you look at their site before book, not as we did. Then, we paid for...

Spent such a lovely long weekend in Knysna. Was spoilt in luxury with a beautiful spacious room, huge bath for two and warm romantic fire place. Ypie, Erik and Sandy made us feel so at home and took excellent care of us. We unfortunately had to leave earlier than anticipated at 2am, instead of the scheduled 10:00am and was caringly...
