We stayed at this guest house and I really cannot fault it in any way. Our bedroom was lovely very well furnished fabulous views of the lagoon. Wonderful free standing bath plus separate shower. We arrived in the afternoon and high tea was being served and is served each afternoon. Free local drinks are available in your room and the bar area good choice. Breakfast was good. Liesel and Mark the owners were friendly and helpful advising about the local area and amenities. Lovely swimming pool and all set in beautiful gardens

This was our second stay at this wonderful boutique hotel and we can’t wait to come back! Mark & Adele are wonderful hosts and Liesl and Rico are amazing and really look after you. They are on hand to recommend places to visit and where to eat. Some of the restaurants we went to were The Olive Tree, Freshline & Cafe Mario. Kanonkop House is an amazing place with breathtaking views and you feel at home as soon as you arrive. We loved the new kitchen area and bar where you could have complimentary drinks and exchange stories with fellow guests - we met lots of lovely people! I also had two massages by the lovely Zandi which were very relaxing - one of them was while I was sunbathing by the pool! The rooms are all wonderfully unique and have fantastic views of the lagoon. We’ve stayed in the Forest Suite and Sunbird but can’t wait to stay in the Paradise suite - see you again soon.

Dear Karen
Thank you for the wonderful review. It was an absolute pleasure having you stay with us, a second time too! The restaurants you went to were good choices and glad you had a chance to visit just a few of the good eating establishments in the area. Next visit, there are a few more to try :) Zandi's massage around the pool IS fabulous and glad you enjoyed the relaxing treatments she offers. We are pleased you enjoyed meeting new people while staying with us. I love the fact that our guests get together either at the bar or dining area for a good catch up and swop stories about their holiday. It is after all about meeting new people and having new experiences.... sometimes you get great tips from them too! Look forward to your next visit... lets not wait to long to book. Warm regards, Liesl, Mark & Adele and the Kanonkop House Team

During our South Africa trip we had the pleasure to stay 4 nights at Kanonkop House and it was a wonderful stay. The view from the guest house is magical - from sun rise to sun down. Mark and Liesl gave us great tips, booked our restaurants etc. Breakfast is a real treat as is high tea and drinks included :) Thanks so much for making our stay so relaxed. All four of us loved it.

Massage was a must - Zandi is fantastic!

Kind greetings from Switzerland from Nils & Esther

Room Tip: The view is wonderful - so worth the extra money

To have the chance to stay in that guesthouse is for sure a REAL PRIVILEGE!!
The setting is simply amazing, the room was stunning but the view from it on the lake is simply a pure joy!! ( though I traveled quite a lot in my life)!!

The Manager on duty, Liz, is a great, professional, helpful personal; during 2 days, she did not spare any efforts giving all kinds of recommendations for what to do in the area. She and her team really make a big difference! The owner even came to greet us in the simplest and friendliest ways on the day we were leaving... For sure, a plus!!

Breakfast served in the garden is lovely. Amazing lobby with different living rooms, free drinks and snacks were here to top it all.

NOT TO BE MISSED!!

Dear IncaDutch

Wow! Thank you for the kind review. I am so pleased you had such an amazing stay. Thanks for the compliment on our professional and helpful service and staff. Glad you enjoyed the recommendations - it helps having a 'local' assist you in your days that you stay with us. The high tea and free bar is always an added extra that our guests enjoy. It was an absolute pleasure having you with us and I hope you will visit again soon!
