    Beautiful location on the lagoon, a lovely cosy atmosphere. The chalets are very well equipped and comfortable.We unfortunately were only able to stay one night and would have loved to have stayed longer to enjoy the chalet and environment longer.

    Lovely tree top cabin. Charming, comfortable, well equiped, nice surroundings, and not too far from Knysna waterfront. Very cosy bed linnen and comfortable beds. Large windows so alot of natural light.
