Thank you for a most surprisingly and very pleasant stay at your resort. We have been over joyed to find such a well equipped and clean chalet. Everything from the view, cutlery, crockery, linen and bathroom are superb and we do appreciate that. Thank you again we are advertising you.

We found the place to be in a perfect location. Clean and fairly comfortable. The lounge area was a little small for 4 Adults but for our purpose it was suffice. With a small heater in the lounge, it took the chill out of the air when it was chilly. Will definitely be back

Lovely rather basic cottage, large and kept very clean. Great shower, and excellent bed. Located close to the beach with great views (had the corner cottage) and diner options close by. Able to park your car close by as well.

Very good. Lovely chalet and beautiful location. Just a suggestion to replace the matresses that is more comfortable, very hard mattress. We slept upstairs in luxury cottage. Overall we enjoyed the stay very much!

Cottage had everything we needed. Nice view and private. Helpful and friendly service. Ideal place to stay while exploring the Knysna - George vicinity and enjoying nature and the beautiful coast. The cottages are close to a restaurant.

Overall, I had a very nice stay at the Cottages. I enjoyed that the units were being cleaned on a daily basis. However, a laundry service would be nice to have on site. A shuttle service between Brenton and Knysna would also be recommended.

We could see the sea sitting in bed having coffee. Being someone who has to start my day with a cup of coffee, that was one of the highlights. All in all...

The overall trip was okay, although the cold weather conditions made our stay very uncomfortable, the rooms were very cold, the panel heaters did not help much. There were two panel heaters, one in the main bedroom and the other in the lounge but you could only use one at a time due to only one plug provided for both,...

We stayed here two nights in April with our family of 5 and 2 grandparents. We had a chalet for our family which fit all of us very comfortably and was well cared for and equipped. My parents stayed in a cozy cabin for 2 people with views (cabin 10). There was only a fridge and microwave, but you could...
