We've just spent two weeks in the Featherbed Studio and had a most enjoyable stay. Kitty was very helpful with information on the best places to visit and restaurants to eat in. The pool was beautifully clean and the garden was a little oasis of calm.

Thanx to kitty for the hospitality and friendliness. The apartment was very close to all our favourite places. Loved that it was super clean. The view was amazing from the balcony and kitchen, morning swims were great, especially the fact that the water was warm. Will definitely be back.

Enjoyed our stay in Knysna, host Kitty very welcoming and informactive about local attractions and services. We ended up staying longer due to our satisfaction with everything. Only improvement would be to location of bath, which is apparently on the to do list anyway. Thanks Kitty for an enjoyable stay.

It isn't often nowadays that you can say, I would give anything to go back there again... And yet, Kitty made a miserable two week work experience, combined with typical Western Cape weather (4 seasons in one day) into a fabulous trip. The little personal touches and friendliness of everyone, especially the lady herself is not often encountered on our...

Thanks to you both for taking the time to review Footprints. It really was a pleasure to host you and be around to assist and have some lovely chats during your "prolonged" stay. So glad you felt comfy and at ease in our bright (on a sunny day) upstairs apartment. The view awaits you. Looking forward to seeing you again....
