We loved everything, the apartment, garden, pool & the wonderful staff. The location was perfect for a relaxing few days with easy access to the local attractions, restaurants and shops. There were always staff around but they were very discreet and helpful.

Having stayed at the superior apartment last year and was impressed so much that we had to return.
The property is well situated and has three other studios on site.
Excellent facilities including bbq, pool and very important, solar energy.
All the accommodations are fitted with high spec facilities.

Mike, the manager is only a call away for any issues and Themba provides 6 day week cleaning of the studios which includes regular change of bedding and towels.

Knysna golf club is a two minute drive and the shops, restaurants and waterfront a short drive also.

All in all, this is a first class place to relax and enjoy South Africa.

This accommodation is perfect. Room spotless and everything for self catering was there [No cooker but not required] Gardens and swimming pool were beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. My car was even washed without asking. This is one of the best self catering I have stayed in.

Sandra and René always keep the house and garden up to date. Themba takes care of the cleanliness and washes your clothes in a flash. A beautiful new kitchen has been installed in the upper apartment. Here and there, improvements are always being made. In case of power cuts, internet and the main power sources still work; they have solar panels and batteries. A large water tank is there in case of water shortages. The pool is heated. We didn't miss anything and the peace and quiet at Hunters Home is wonderful. We are looking forward to the next time.

Lovely property. Comfortable beds. Room was a good size. Loved the shower. Nice idea of concealing the kitchen appliances and crockery. Weather was not good so we couldn't enjoy the pool facilities. More lighting is needed for the yard. Security company needs to be more sensitive towards guests when they are checking properties.

Very comfortable accommodation, feels like a home away from home. Lovely modern decor with a beautiful deck. The studio was spotlessly clean. Would definitely recommend to other travellers. This was the second time we have stayed at Armidillo Studios and we weren't disappointed. Will be back.

One word: EXCELLENT! A HOME from home, yet the feeling of being on holiday. René and Sandra, Mike thought of everything possible that will make you want to come back again. Units are modern, well furnished, comfortable and clean. A big shoutout to Themba, a great ambassador, friendly, helpful, caring, does everything with passion. The garden and swimming pool very well maintained. We can definitely recommend Armadillo Studios.

I had a wonderful stay at Armadillo Studio. The gardens are an absolute oasis, and the setup with lounge chairs and picnic benches next to the pool is stunning. The room itself was also wonderful and was more than I needed for my work trip. I can recommend this accommodation to all!

"All units looked fantastic, there are three and all are different sizes. I had the smallest unit (it is still big) which is perfect for two people. The bigger units have a kitchen so if you want to do your own cooking then you would need to go for them."
