My wife and I spent 1 night at Footprints of Knysna. The location of the property is in a pleasant quiet area of Knysna with safe and secure parking. The accommodation was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the fully equipped kitchenette is useful. The balcony has lovely views of the surrounding area and of the Knysna lagoon. Overall we had an extremely enjoyable and convenient stop-over.
