Our family of 4 adults and 2 small children( 5and4) arrived fairly late in the evening to find the cabin in tip top condition.We were impressed by the fantastic view across the valley and the quiet and peaceful atmosphere. The town of Knysna is only about 10 minutes away down an interesting winding road. I have no hesitation in recommending...

We stayed at the kings gift house. A wonderful wooden house with a spectacular view. The house is comfortable and well equipped. The rooms are comfortable and there is more then enough space. The kitchen has everything in it to cook good meals. The showers are nice and warm. The swimming pool is an asset. And we really enjoyed ourselves.

Great location and beautiful place with great views, but the unit was not cleaned properly when we arrived. We had to rewash all the dishes. There was a lot of dust as well. There needs to be a good spring clean of the unit

An ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of our everyday rushing... Very peaceful and close to nature. 😌 All the amenities you need to have relaxed time and close enough to town that you can stock up again.

My friends and i can't stop talking about the place and our stay there. The cabin itself is so beautiful, clean and well looked after. The beautiful view and sight when waking up in the morning is out of this world. We will surely come back for a longer stay 😃

What a wonderful and peaceful place! Magnificent views! We stayed at Kings Gift cabin and everything was neat and clean and in a working condition. The cabin is very private. It is just you and nature. The silence was very nice. You only hear the wind through the treetops and the birds. Truely The Kings Gift!

dissappointed with having to wash own dishes after paying R650-00 cleaning fee. No extra toilet paper. Have not received deposit back now one week after departure. Very different experience after having stayed ay Lulama a few years back.

“Bring food to cook in the cabin. Otherwise there are restaurants in the centre of Knysna which is located very near the Phantom River View. Very quiet area. Near the Paradise Garden and the Elephant Park”
