Experience Knysna

Happy Guests

“The place is wonderfully set out especially for travelling as a group. In a quiet neighbourhood, very safe. The amenities are very good, has everything you need. The surrounding scenery is beautiful, great for jogging and walks. Restaurants and other amenities are in close proximity. And a very hospitable owner.”


Accountant and Team Leader

“Pierre is a great host. The room was awesome, same as the kitchen and the outdoor area. Pierre and his family live next to the apartment and will make you feel at home immediately. Be prepared to get a nice hand made breakfast and many useful tips and heartful conversations whenever needed. The highlight of our stay was for sure Noodle, we believe a mix between an lion and tiger, but Pierre ensured us that she is a dog.”



“Nothing was too much for our hosts Pierre and Lynn who went the extra mile they exuded friendliness. Overall the best guest house we have ever experienced. Much attention to detail and more than anything else very personal, thanks to both PIERRE and Lynn. Location made for a wonderful stay on the Knysna estuary and visits to the east head with views over the ocean and the town. Swimming at the B&B pool and when the tide was in was pure joy. Local eateries were vibrant and food was of a high standard. Breakfast at the guest house was tailored exactly to one’s preferences. Will definitely return.”
