    Peace little guesthouse with stunning views of both the ocean and Knysna lagoon. Service was excellent and the manager was very helpful and friendly. Great spot for couples or groups to relax after exploring Knysna and surrounds during the day.

    We had a lovely view, and very good and enhanced breakfast, we had a bathroom with a big bath tub/jacuzzi which was very relaxing. We were there in winter but in summer you can enjoy the cute pool. Super stay!
