Prospect Cottage is perfectly located above the Knysna waterfront. Fabulous view from the deck of this quaint & cozy cottage. Fabulous location to venture out on the N2 to all the incredible animal sanctuaries, beaches, rain forest canopy tour and restaurants! Check off the bucket list! So wish I could visit again!

Had a lovely 3 night stay at the cottage and were met on arrival by Liz and Neville who are lovely people. Neville and Liz provided us with lots of information about restaurants and where to visit which turned out to be very good advice. The cottage has everything anyone could wish for - we ate out all of the time and boiled the kettle once - too many eateries to ignore. We had a relaxing time and walked to waterfront on a couple of occasions. The sport on the TV was a bonus for me (John) and we would all return tomorrow if we could. Finally thanks for the Fizz and I hope you enjoyed the Fizz we left for you. Take care and thank you - John, Angela & Elysia xxx

We had a wonderful stay at a Prospect cottage. Knysna is a wonderful place to stay during a trip to South Africa, there is so much to do in the area from forest walks to boat trips and stunning beaches. Neville and Liz gave us wonderful recommendations which we really appreciated, such as the Jubilee walk through the forest and great places to eat. This cottage she is very big, so ideal for a family, and they have thought of every little touch that you will need for your stay here. We would definitely return and recommend.

Our stay at Prospect Cottage exceeded our highest expectations! We arrived in Knysna, collected by owners Neville/Liz and welcomed with genuine warmth and kindness. Prospect Cottage is truly an oasis where you can recharge/recover from life and all its stresses. Spacious, luxurious little extras, central yet quiet location, views to lose yourself in...who can ask for more??
Thank you Neville/Liz we are already planning a return trip...:)
