Beautiful and immaculately presented villa
Amazing location with panoramic views. The perfect place for our family to spend a few days on our way along the Garden Route. Martin (the owner) was very friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Lovely & Unique!
Martin was a wonderful host. He met us with bubbly and beers and we really loved our stay. We were not disappointed. We shared the house with friends and there is a ton of space. Every bedroom has amazing views. It is a residential area, but just short drive to town and the waterfront. The pool and hot tub are a bonus and the kitchen and brai are amply supplied. I recommend for anyone that needs space and wants to entertain. There is a fun little bar on the second floor including a picture from the Last Tango. It will be a fun and memorable stay. I can't go all the way to a 5, because a few things need a little maintenance.

Home away from home
Martin was wonderful greeting us and showing us the ins and outs of the house, so was his amazing housekeeper Vuvu. Bedrooms were huge all 4 and the heated pool and spa were well used ! The kitchen was lovely although we only utilised it a few times mostly for breakfast. We enjoyed the bar area upstairs and the view of the heads was lovely.

Fabulous Place
We stayed at Strode House for three nights and visited Knysna and the surroundings. Our short stay at Strode House was perfect. It's a very comfortable house with all we needed to feel as at home. The jaccuzzi was heated, an extra for winter,the beautiful pool so nice for summer vacations.The living areas are confortable and the American kitchen very nice, rooms confortable & bathroom good, The owner,Martin, was very helpful, and made sure that we have all we needed. He was very caring. For example, we were eating biltong and he gave us some of his personal stock to taste, he provided us with everything we need and made our stay "memorable" If you visit Knysna with a family, the Strode House is what you need.

Cool house, great location
We stayed at Strode House for three nights, visiting various places in and around Knysna. We found it to be an excellent base to explore from, and the views were rather magnificent. We visited in winter, so the hot tub was a welcome addition, and I would imagine the pool is very pleasant in the summer. The bar was cool, and we ate dinner there one night, while the downstairs living area was very comfortable. Martin was always extremely helpful, making sure that we had everything we needed. For example, he provided extra gas for the heater in the living area to ensure we weren't cold. The beds were comfortable, and the shower okay. Be aware that there is no sign to the property, nor name on the house itself. It's number three, a large white house with two driveways. We would definitely recommend Strode House to anyone looking to stay in Knysna, especially for a longer stay.

Perfect family get away
We have just arrived back after spending five days at Strode House. The accommodation is classy, comfortable and has superb views, making it an ideal place to head back to after exploring the beautiful Knysna/Plett/Wilderness region during the day. Martin ensured that our every need was catered for together with his team of Vuvu and Paul who maintain the property without ever being intrusive. Thank you for an unforgettable experience.
