The room was clean with tea/coffee facilities and a fridge to share for the guests. Helpful information and host available all the time. Secure parking and a healthy but nice breakfast. Will recommend them.

Very accommodating host- couldn't have been more helpful. Located a bit out of town which made it tricky to access Knysna of an evening as we weren't renting a car. Rooms clean and service overall excellent.

We were a family of four adults/young adults staying. We loved the lush garden and bonus bird watching - memories that will stay with us! Great tips for hiking and help with restaurant bookings were also very valuable. Thank you for a great stay!
