One of the great self catering cottages around, helpful owners. Close to the beach. Booked for two nights, the cottage was clean, and kept up to standard daily. Friendly management who came to check up on guests.

From the start we were impressed and our accommodation far exceeded our expectations . Thinking of making it an annual stay over on our wedding anniversary date . Friendly staff and a chalet that was kept spotlessly clean on daily basis we couldn't ask for more

The cottages are spacious and clean, the views are fantastic and the whole village is peaceful and tranquil. The setting, close to the beach is great and the towns of Knysna and Sedgefield are in close proximity. The cottages are serviced daily. This is a wonderful spot for a short stay or an extended stay.
