Everything feels safe due to the 24hr security on the island. Our rooms were big, very clean and modern and the entire guesthouse felt luxurious but still homely....

We only had two days for our honeymoon and chose this for our first night, we did not regret it one bit. Lovely house. We will be back and will book in advance...

Unfortunately this stay started on a bad note when the Guest confused the door bell for a 'panic button' and had to phone for service even though the guest house was fully staffed! After arrival I discussed breakfast with the guest as we normally serve a continental and fully cooked breakfast at 8.15. The guest agreed that all her son...

Was a great stay. Rooms look fabulous, and the location is great for some quiet morning walks. And the breakfast was very tasty, not too much and speedily prepared! Definitely recommended to anyone in Knysna
