Great welcome by Paddy and Antje who went out of their way to welcome us, provided great advice on things to do in Kynsna and even made a dinner reservation at the restaurant for us. Great hospitality, delicious breakfast and the most amazing views of the lagoon! We also took our little dog who was welcomed like one of the...

After experiencing Knysna, I’m not sure why anyone bothers with the rest of the Garden Route. Knysna is a protea and the rest of the Garden Route is weeds, as far as I’m concerned. (There are some nice looking weeds, but weeds nonetheless.) The August Bay certainly contributed to our very positive impression of Knysna. The view from our room...

We spent 5 nights at Augusta Bay in February and left wishing we could stay longer. The location is fabulous with amazing views. The room and facilities are excellent. The hosts are warm and welcoming and helpful in every way. They contibuted to making our stay memorable and we want to return when in South Africa again.

Stayed in April 2016. I was supposed to stay for a night and had no hesitation extending it to 2 once I was there. It is such an amazing place - the bar, the eating area, the pool and more importantly the friendly management and breathtaking views from the bedroom. I would however remind people what others have noted -...

Tucked away in an idyllic corner of Knysna. Private, comfortable and welcoming. I've been going back for several years and the service and standards have always been maintained. Good off-road parking too.

Paddy & Antje are the most welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable hosts. With stunning views of the lagoon & the most delicious choice of breakfasts this is a great place to stay in Knysna. Their restaurant suggestions for dinner were fantastic - & not the usual touristy traps.

What sells this guest house are the views from the suites. Unfortunately a neighbouring property has now spoilt the outlook from some rooms but these are sold at a cheaper rate. You will need to enquire. This is a guest house which grows on you the longer you stay. The management have a more relaxed style then we experienced elsewhere...

On arrival we were warmly welcomed. Nothing was too much bother for the owners. The rooms were beautifully and we were given a choice of two really spacious rooms. Both with nice views of the bay. The guest house itself is situated in a fabulous location and a stones throw from the sea where there a a couple of well...

Lovely, clean, picturesque and a beautiful stay along the garden route! Breakfast was divine and the hosts more than helpful with finding and making a Last minute reservation for us at the most delicious restaurant in town for dinner.

Enjoyed a lovely stay here en-route to Cape Town. Location is down a narrow road to one of the heads where there are two cafe/restaurants located (popular esp in December!). Views are brilliant and the accommodation has a small pool that overlooks this and is a sun trap. There is a small hidden beach reached by a small walk too....
