Magnificent view over Knysna Lagoon
We stayed in the house over Christmas and New Year. It was perfect for us, four adults and four children. The house is spacious with a nice terrass and pool. Three bedrooms on the top floor and one on the ground floor. Well equipped kitchen. We particularly liked the dining area. The garage fits two SUV:s. The view over the Knysna lagoon is magnificent. We enjoyed the view at day time and not the least at the evenings. The owner Rainer is very helpful and called us before travelling to Knysna for a brief about the house and recommendation on activities in the area. We wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended!

Great location and views
This large house is in a great location with easy access to Knysna and surrounding areas. The views over the lagoon and mountains are spectacular we loved sitting in the garden watching the amazing sunsets. We stayed in the house for 7 weeks and used it as a base to explore Knysna, Plettenberg Bay, Wilderness and other parts of the Garden Route. We enjoyed playing golf at the local courses, eating at different restaurants and just relaxing in the garden. There are some nice walks from the house including to Leisure Isle and East Head Cafe. The house is well-equipped and we enjoyed cooking meals in the kitchen and using the outside braai on the large terrace. There is very sunny room with balcony over the garage which also has stunning views and is a nice place to sit and read. There is good internet connection and we were able to stream movies. We had a couple of questions for the Agent / Owner during our stay and they responded quickly in every instance. Both were very helpful and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We can highly recommend this house and hope to return to Knysna.

Fantastiskt boende i Knysna.
Fantastiskt hus i Knysna att fira semester i. Kändes stort fräscht och hade alla bekvämligheter. Underbar utsikt över Knysna lagoon och även bergen runt omkring. Fanns även en härlig pool med insynsskyddat läge. Älskade detta stället och kommer absolut åka tillbaka så snart tillfälle ges. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽🌞😎
