Perfect located, just off the N2 there is this lovely place! We stayed in a tree house and love it a lot! We made a hike in the forest, enjoyed our own braai and woke up with only the sounds of the birds:) the owners are really nice people and we would definitely stay again! Thank you :)

The cabin we stayed in was the simplest one, but it was nice and well-equipped. They provided firewood for the stove, which was helpful since there is no other source of heat. There is hiking on the grounds, so you can step out of your cabin and hike down to the creek and the beautiful waterfall. It was a nice... More

Hi there Thanks so much for your honest review. It's not often we get a dressing down about our lovely dogs (in fact yours in the first review of this nature in 17 years!).

This place made our Garden Route trip! The bedding was super plush and comfortable and the little extras like the logs for the fire and the home made jam were greatly appreciated. I would love to stay here again.

This place was absolutely amazing. We stayed in a tree-house cabin which was totally secluded. The design was amazing with an up high outdoor shower (not overlooked) which had the illusion of showering in the forest. There is a semi-panoramic view of Knysna forest built around the bed. Things were made out of re-cycled materials which made it very unique... More

We got very nice small house in the nature. The place was clean and well organized. The only problem was that there is no WiFi in the house and the WiFi room at the center they close at 21:00. We recommend to give to the guest a key for the WiFi room and it will be more convinced.

Thanks so much for your review. We do understand that some people simply cannot be without wi-fi 24/7 which is why we have installed it in Butterfly Garden Cottage. For those who need wi-fi, but not constantly, we offer our newly completed internet zone. We have chosen not to put wi-fi in our forest cabins as we feel that this... More

The unit was clean and well appointed and the wi-fi office/glass box was very useful. The shower is exquisite and so well had crafted.
