An excellent choice for family & friends. Angela was very helpful from inquiry to end of stay. Well located and equipped, very convenient location. Loved the fireplace and the cat. Hope to be visiting again later in the year.

Had a lovely stay at Zauderberg Cottage during our stay for the Knysna Cycle Race. The name Zauderberg means 'magical mountain' in German and it is a most appropriate name for this establishment. The views from the deck and lounge are breath taking both during the day and night with a clear view of the lagoon and heads. Value for...

You have to go up through a lovely garden to get there. The Easter bunny even came up there on the knysna hill for our daughter. The...

Zauberberg is like a home away from home, which is why I have gone back many times to stay! The rooms are very nice with amazing views over Knysna lagoon. It's like staying in a little sanctuary whilst at the same time being close enough to town and other activities in and around Knysna. What I like best about Zauberberg...

Little to add to a well deserved five-green-spot place. We enjoyed very much our stay despite the bad weather in a beautiful garden kept by nice people. The Knysna area is definitely worth the journey, and the Zauberberg the perfect base camp for exploring it. Alles ganz gut.

We had a great experience in Knysna while staying at Zauberberg Cottage. My family of 5 stayed for only one evening last week -- we all wished we could have stayed longer. The cottage features stunning views of the lagoon. It was a cool night and we enjoyed reading books in the living room warmed by the fireplace. The bedrooms...
