The location is really good, you can walk to most places in the city and for excursions you are in the right place. There are many great places to visit close... More

AestAs is centrally located nearby the shopping malls and the ATM's. Even the Waterfront Quays is on walking distance. Just cross the main road and walk straight ahead (12 min).

Aestas B&B a welcome little hide away after a long journey from Cape Town. Situated on the surrounding hills overlooking the Knysna Waterfront. The Owners from Holland are most friendly, making visitors feel welcome and comfortable. The double rooms are spacious and pleasantly decorated. This little hide away I will highly reccomend.
