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 place to spend a late afternoon, sipping wine and having BBQ. Hosts were kind and friendly, they made us feel welcomed. Two thumbs up for this place.

My family and I stayed at the Armadillo Studios over Christmas and had a fantastic stay. The apartments are comfortable and the pool and gardens are very well kept and beautiful. Rene and Sandra were gracious hosts and very accomodating, as well as the other guests. Highly Recommended!!

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 were immaculate. At the end of a busy day we looked forward to a relaxing swim before preparing our BBQ (brai) later that evening. We had a choice of gas or coal BBQ. Our hosts, Rene and Sandra were very friendly and welcoming. So much so, that Sandra joined us in a yoga session before dinner on our last night. We were sorry to leave and would definitely stay there again on our next visit.

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 self catering option.

One night we had a braai with Marion and Dave plus local wine which was the highlight of the stay.

Room Tip: Depends on the size in your party and the size of room that you want. All have the same views and ha...
