Clean, tidy, lovely welcome as always. The owners have worked very hard over the past few years to improve and enhance Big Tree House and the Cottages. The gardens look fantastic too - with that tropical oasis feel about them. They are doing a fantastic job.

The guesthouse is situated above the city and that’s great because you have a beautiful view over the lagoon. At arriving, you park your car at the house and get a remote, to open the gate. We got checked-in and shown our apartment. The kitchen is fully equipped and you can find everything you need there. There is also a...

The house is really comfortable and nice, placed in a hill just in front of the Knysna bay. Bedrooms are quite big with a excellent bed. Its terrace is a very nice place to waste the time watching the landscape with a cold bier.
