We stayed there for 3 nights during Christmas time and it was a very pleasant stay. Location is great, an upscale residential area only a short drive to the waterfront and all the nice restaurants. Our studio is of a decent size; the bathroom is spacious, the bed very comfy with lots of cushions. The garden is well-maintained, a perfect...

Beautiful spot, modern and well equipped. Peaceful garden and comfortable rooms. Great pool. We were on our honeymoon and stayed here on our way to our final destination, could happily have stayed a bit longer.

My wife and I stayed at the Armadillo studio while travelling the Garden Route. We were looking for a base in Knysna that offered us everything we needed - high quality accommodation, the option to cook for ourselves if we wished and a peaceful setting. That is exactly what we found with The Armadillo Studio. The room, garden and pool...

Great hosts and a fantastic property to stay for the holidays. Absolute privacy if you need it and a well kept, clean room. Modern and well thought out space. It feel as if the hosts have lived in the room and thought of everything you might need.

This was our second visit and it was as good as the first. because we have become friends with the owners Marion and Dave it was like visiting friends rather than a business. This time we had the large two bed apartment which would be fantastic for a family. We elected to have breakfast provided rather than take up the...

We stayed four nights in the large apartment (nov 2013). Both hosts were so nice and friendly and gave us lots of advises for having dinner and doing activities! They serve very nice breakfast with plenty of variety. We even had a pancake breakfast for just the two of us. Very nice garden and swimming pool and there is also...

We stayed in one of the studios over New year and really enjoyed ourselves. Lovely owners who are so friendly and helpful. Great garden and pool plus they provide BBQs. (Braai). We would definitely stay again as a good location particularly for Knysna golf club. Fantastic value, very clean but not ultra modern, a little gem of a place :)

We enjoyed 3 nights here and the time went so quickly. The studio's are so homely and very well kept. We enjoyed relaxing on the verandah after a morning of sightseeing drinking wine (which is so cheap in SA!) Beautiful gardens, Marion and David take pride in their guest house through and through. Thanks for being great hosts. Extremely warm...

“All units looked fantastic, there are three and all are different sizes. I had the smallest unit (it is still big) which is perfect for two people. The bigger units have a kitchen so if you want to do your own cooking then you would need to go for them.”
