All three units at Footprints of Knysna offer something unique. We stayed in the upstairs 2-sleeper. Very cosy and very homely. Conveniently located in terms of town layout. Will be back...thanks Kitty and Danny!

Kitty and her husband were very kind to us and made us stay very enjoyable. They even arranged for our laundry to be collected and washed. We will definitely advise people to go and stay in their guesthouse.

Thank you Jenny for taking the time to review Footprints. So glad that you enjoyed the privacy and views. We are aiming to stay affordable whilst making some upgrades and décor tweaks! Those stairs are a bit of a schlep with the luggage but otherwise keeping us fit! Thanks for staying with us and hope to see you again. Regards....

We stayed in the Nest. The flat was clean and had everything we needed including a great shower! The views from the balcony were even better than anticipated. Lovely garden and could have spent a week there lazing by the pool! Hosts were great.

The rooms are great with multiple bathrooms, Wifi connection, comfortable beds and a cute dining area with almost all facilities pre provided. Its a perfect self catering room. It is a slight distance away from the waterfront and the city center and one will need a vehicle or a taxi to get around town if you choose to live here,...
