Experience Knysna

Happy Guests

“We stayed at Chez Pierre for two nights. Owners Pierre and Lynne are the most amazing hosts attending to everything the traveler needs. They have clearly done their fair share of globe trotting as they have incorporated all the essentials to make guests experience true home from home comfort. The house is luxurious – from the beautiful decor to the spacious and well-appointed rooms.
The breakfast meticulously prepared with love by chef Margaret, and delicious home-made croissants baked by Pierre made it truly memorable. Add the bunnies, the cutest dogs and a stunning vegetable garden and you have a truly welcoming experience.
As Pierre is French speaking this guest house attracts many international visitors.
Cycling around Leisure Isle is safe and an absolute must.
Of all the places I have visited around the world, Knysna rates as one of the most impressive. Amazing scenery, friendly people and so much to do.”


“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.”

“The breakfast was amazing and had a lot of variety. The staff was so friendly and did the breakfast to my exact specifications. I asked for extra blankets because it was a bit cold and that was done quite quickly. I also enjoyed the way the owner tried his best to meet my date changes and the way he was so understanding. I really appreciate…”


“We recently stayed at Chez Pierre for two nights. What an amazing guesthouse, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated like royalty. Owners Pierre and Lynn are amazing, nothing too much trouble for them. The house was beautiful and absolutely spotless! Each bedroom is decorated differently, the bed and linens were superb, TV and tea and coffee in each room. Breakfast was out of this world with freshly backed croissants, cheese, jams, fresh fruit and yogurt and any kind of egg you would like. We will most definitely be going back! And will stay longer next time. 😀”


“By far the best guest house we have ever stayed in! Wonderful, warm, welcoming hosts … nothing was too much trouble. The house is furnished beautifully, with attention to detail … absolute luxury! … and the setting is perfect … we’ll definitely be back!!”


“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.”
