We had a lovely time staying at the Double Dutch! We stayed for 2 nights, as it is in the perfect location to explore a lot of the garden route. Kate and Natalie are amazing hosts! The rooms are very comfortable, the breakfasts are delicious, and we had excellent restaurants recommended for dinner. I would definitely recommend Double Dutch to...

You enter a wonderful estate, you are heart-warming welcomed, you walk through an amazing garden to end up in a well designed and equipped room; after having seen the view over Knysna Bay you wish to stay longer than planned. The breakfast next morning will add to it, there is a mouthwatering buffet, but don´t miss to order something hot...

The guesthose is placed on a hillside, so the panorama is great: You will wake up with a direct view on the lagoon. The rooms are very good and the service as well. Both, Natalie and Kate, had very good tips for dinner and day tours. It was our exeptional place to stay via our Western Cape tour.

We fell in love with Knysna and Double Dutch. This B&B is different than a typical B&B. We had a separate room which was not connected to the main building with a spectacular view of the bay. We were in the 'Oyster Catcher' suite and in my honest opinion this one offers the best views. We spent two nights and...

The room was spacious, modern, and the design is beautiful. We loved the great views from our terrace of the bay in Knysna and really enjoyed our...

My friend and I had the most wonderful stay at this home away from home. The 2 Dutch ladies go out of their way to make you feel at home. They are into details. All was perfect. The beds were the best ever at a hotel/B&B. We will certainly go back.

This was one of our favorite accommodations during our vacation in South Africa. Kate and Nathalie are very welcoming! They totally rebuilt this B&B about five years ago, and so the accommodations are new and first class. The shower and bathroom were spacious and modern, the beds are very comfortable, and the decor is beautiful. The B&B has a lovely...

The Double Dutch was one of the highlights of our trip! It is a luxurious BnB with two great hosts! The view from the breakfast area and the pool deck is breathtaking. Breakfast is very good and you can easily walk to the city center of Kmysna and the Waterfront within 10 minutes.
