          Bamboo is unique, each room has been decorated differently and with style while the overall place is like a mini tropical jungle right in Knysna. Jaynie, Gran and the rest of the staff are attentive and very welcoming. I'll be back!

          Nadine H
          Dear Sir or Madam, we would like to book Bamboo the Guesthouse in Knysna from 16. to 18.03.2016. We travel with 2 adults and our 3-years old son. We don't need a big bed for our son. At home he still sleeps in a baby cot. The big bed in your family room or family suite is too big (to high) for him to sleep. Which room can you recommend us? We would prefer a renovated room with nice bath room and - if possible - a wooden floor. Or perhaps the honeymoon suite. Thanks for your reply. Best regards Nadine
