The view from here is fantastic! The location is great for Knysna, out of town but really close. The Villa is exceptional, and the staff even more so. They could not have been more helpful or friendly. We can only recommend this whole-heartedly.

How do you improve on excellence. This was our second visit and we have already reserved for next year. Not only is the accommodation of the highest quality but also the staff. Bianca and Ross are the perfect hosts, making the stay perfect in every way.

Absolutely super 2 night stay. From the welcome to the farewell, the staff and management were extremely helpful and friendly. Booking restaurants, arranging taxis and advising on places to visit. Wonderfully appointed modern luxury. Missing the place already.

Not an inexpensive option but certainly good value for what you get. Upon arrival we were met by the housekeeper who settled us in and made sure that we left nothing of value in the car in case of break- ins. Our room was spacious and beautifully decorated with a huge and well equipped bathroom (we had some issues with...

“Go for a top floor to maximise view.”

“The rooms are light, modern well equipped and provide everything that is needed. For an uninterrupted view over the Knysna Heads we would recommend either of the two top floor suites.Although I'm sure Ross or Bianca would inform anyone booking as to the views from the other suites.”
