“Home from home”
Reviewed 23 January 2012 for a stay in October 2011

This is a great place to stay. The house is packed full of the things you might want on holiday, its spacious and well appointed and the owners were very helpful. I was a little put out by the strict arrival times, but that's because we were travelling a long distance to get there and I'm sure if you asked they would accommodate a later arrival! The house was really comfy and there is a grocers just across the road if you intend to self cater. Everything about this accommodation felt like a family home not just a rental, we were weary after safari and it couldn’t have served us better.

This isn't strictly to do with the accommodation but I didn't love Knysna - its the only place, apart from Cape Town, where the tourist info office told us not to walk alone at night, taxis were cheap and easy though. I think what shows the strength of this accommodation is that I'd go back even though Knsyna wasn't my favourite place in SA!

Its the little touches that Neville and Liz do that really add up: the welcome milk in the fridge, bottle of wine, sherry, washing powder and them having already put the kettle on for our arrival on a cold miserable day.

The views are spectacular and the house just lovely to be in, my only slight complaint was that if you are there in a cold spell, the one electric heater isn't quite enough to heat the living room. But I'd go back in a flash
