    Thank you for your review. Please note that I make it very clear on my website that I serve a light, self-help breakfast. We do try our best to make your stay as happy as possible. All the very best!

    Nice house, incredible staff, beautiful place. It is so possible to come back to Knysna and Isola Bella, when I and my wife come back to South Africa and explore more places in the Garden Route. Thanks
