Can’t say enough great things @ Headlands House! It is a small and very comfortable B&B. The room & views were amazing! If you drive yourself, be careful with the hilly curves. Breakfast was the best we had on the Garden Route.

Very quiet hotel on the Knysna Heads with a perfect view of the ocean. A small beach is just minutes away, although you can't swim there. The beautiful beach of Brenton-on-sea is only 20-30 minutes away. Very nice and helpful staff and management.
