We had a lovely stay at the guesthouse which is perfectly located on Leisure Island within walking distance of the lagoon. Breakfast was delicious and everyone was very accommodating. They also have an awesome pool which our children enjoyed. We will definitely stay again, thank you.

Best location in the most favorable island in Knysna, very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Small room, no air-condition, no telephone in the room and limited privacy in the room for having glass front door of the room.

Very relaxing atmosphere . Nice, big pool area with enough loungers and couches. The owner lives on the premises and is always ready to assist you. Guesthouse is only a 5min walk from the Knysna Lagoon.

This was our first trip to Knysna and we had no clue in which area to stay. African Breeze Guesthouse was the best choice we could have made! Friendly and informative staff, central to everything, delicious breakfast and everything else you could ask for! We should have stayed longer, and we'll be back!

Rooms are big and so pretty, everything you need, breakfast good, swimming pool appreciated and the situation on the island perfect. 10 minutes walk to the beach.A walk around the island is a must, so...

We so much enjoyed our stay at this lovely guesthouse! The rooms where clean and had everything available we needed. The service staff was always friendly and the breakfast delicious, though the hot part took quite a while to be served. But: “There is no rush in Africa!“ :-) The owner was also very hospitable and gave us helpful advices...

Amazing place to stay. Quiet, comfortable and hospitable. Steve, collin and Bonnie hosted us wonderfully. Also, thanks to claudia and leslie for the wonderful breakfasts. Wonderful place for family vacation. We were allowed to use the kitchen also, which was really nice on part of the hosts.
