Our second visit and still just as good. We rented the apartment which gave us loads of room. Well appointedand and extremely clean throughout plus ideally located for top golf courses, great restaurants, Knysna waterfront and more. Very friendly staff, especially Rose the house keeper. Lloyd, the owner, also couldn't do enough to make our stay memorable.

We stayed in lots of beautiful guest houses when touring the garden route but this was not one of them. We found it most unwelcoming when we arrived. The girl just showed us to our room and everywhere else was locked up. We asked to sit in the sitting room and she reluctantly opened it for us. Our room was...

We had a lovely modern room with a nice veranda and a view of the lagoon. The room was well equipped apart from not having a fridge (though a communal fridge/freezer/ice machine was available). Good wifi. Good shower. Comfortable bed but rather let down by having a heavy duvet cover. Even with the aircon, in January we found it far...

We had a lovely visit at Knysna Stays. Our room was spacious and comfortable, the whole place was a delight. We were fantastically looked after by Rose, who couldn't have been more helpful. Lloyd was fantastic at providing some suggestions on things to do in our visit.
