This place was absolutely amazing. We stayed in a tree-house cabin which was totally secluded. The design was amazing with an up high outdoor shower (not overlooked) which had the illusion of showering in the forest. There is a semi-panoramic view of Knysna forest built around the bed. Things were made out of re-cycled materials which made it very unique...

We got very nice small house in the nature. The place was clean and well organized. The only problem was that there is no WiFi in the house and the WiFi room at the center they close at 21:00. We recommend to give to the guest a key for the WiFi room and it will be more convinced.

Thanks so much for your review. We do understand that some people simply cannot be without wi-fi 24/7 which is why we have installed it in Butterfly Garden Cottage. For those who need wi-fi, but not constantly, we offer our newly completed internet zone. We have chosen not to put wi-fi in our forest cabins as we feel that this...

This magic spot is actually more beautiful than the pictures! My only regret is that due to our schedule we could only stay one night! You will have everything you need here, and much attention is paid to small details, from bringing you wood for a fire, well-stocked coffee and tea supplies, a welcoming jar of tasty fruit and chilli...

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay in the vervet forest cabin, and were warmly welcomed by Alfred, the owner for our second visit to Moonshine. The unit was clean and well appointed and the wi-fi office/glass box was very useful. The shower is exquisite and so well had crafted. The firewood supplied every day was a nice touch and very welcomed...

this is the perfect getaway spot. They have chalets on stilts that give you the effect you in the tree tops. This place is tranquility at its best, and the owners are super friendly and go out their way to make your stay pleasureable. Highly recommended by me. It is also close to many attractions the Craggs has to offer....

An unforgettable stay in the tree house! The setting is perfect with the most spectacular detail in the cabin with everything you might need. If you need to rejuvenate and reconnect this is the ideal spot! We have listed it as our favourite new retreat!

You get a personal touch which you only get when an establishment is operated by the owners. The walk to the river and pool is a must even in winter. Creative showers which would make Gaudi proud. Great choice for the environmently conciuous as the use rainwater exclusively and encourage recycling and composting.

What an amazing place! The owners, Albert and Sue, have built (themselves) a number of cabins on their bush property, and made everything themselves. Every cabin is unique, and has its own name. Made with sustainable materials, and run with a highly efficient, eco-friendly system, this place is a real treat. The shower in our cabin - what a piece...
