Ideally situated

  • 5 of 5

The property was set apart from owners own house. It was ideally situated to take advantage of all aspects of the Knysna area. We found the property to be as described on the website and in very good order.

The owners were very friendly and made us feel very welcome and they enhanced our stay.

We have stayed in Knysna on a number of occasions and found this accommodation to be the best we have had.

Beautiful Knysna!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed 4 nights in this comfortable apartment close to the downtown, but in its own little bit of Eden. Roger and Alva were absolutely wonderful hosts and very helpful with area information. We wish we could have stayed longer. The temperatures were unusually high for when we stayed - no air con, but there are fans provided. The only suggestion we would have would possibly be screens on the windows, because they needed to be open all the time and there were quite a bit of mosquitoes and moths that joined us. The featherbed tour is very enjoyable on a nice day allowing for beautiful scenery, exercise and a great buffet lunch. We also enjoyed hiking the Knysna forest, visiting Plettenburg Bay and the close encounters with cheetah at Tinikwa wild cat reserve. We hope to return and would definitely recommend this property to others. It is very comfortable for up to four people.

Thank you Roger and Alva, for your hospitality and a wonderful stay
