    A very nice place in a quiet part on Knysna; secure parking and easy access to our room from the yard. A great breakfast provided and easy access to the town and harbour! The resident bird watcher gave good advice on local sites.

    Lovely accommodation with everything clean and tidy. Away from all the noise but still within a short drive to all amenities - 5 minutes. Lovely surrounds to relax in with a small pool. Stayed in a self-catering unit.
