Kaye and Kees, we will never be able to thank the two of you enough for going above and beyond to ensure our wedding day was everything we had dreamed of. Everything from Kees hospitality all throughout the day and night, to Kaye's incredible food and wedding cake. We will be forever grateful of all of your hard work and...

Wow! What fabulous time we had at a wedding at Knapdale eco lodge. The venue was stunning with the most beautiful views and with character aplenty. Kees and Kay and their staff did an most amazing job, and nothing was too much trouble. As guests we had the most delicious meal, thanks Kay, which I am sure we will talk...

Knapdale Eco Lodge provided the most stunning location for our wedding in Nov 16. Kees' attention to detail meant we had the most gorgeous and immaculate yet rustic outdoor setting. In the 12 months prior to the wedding, Kees was only a mere email or phone-call away, and provided such amazing help and quick replies (very helpful when you are...

We were recently privileged to have our daughters wedding at this stunning location. From the early planning days with Kees and Kay, the owners, they had nothing but a positive "nothing is a problem" attitude. The food and service was perfect, and the venue and views added to this fantastic celebration.

We recently had our Wedding at Knapdale. The location of the venue is well worth a 5 star. The view was perfect. Unfortunately the customer service provided by the hosts was very poor. I would not recommend this to any of my friends or family. We were left very stressed out and disappointed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay (2 nights) at Knapdale. Our room was very tastefully decorated and had a beautiful view over the paddock, the lake and the hills. A lodge with a private dog-guide: Kays and Kees had 3 dogs, and if you wanted to go for a walk on the property, all you had to do was tell Walker...

We stayed with Kees and Kay for 2 days and had a lovely time. Beautiful spot with amazing view. The room and service were perfect and we enjoyed a delicious dinner! We enjoyed the walk to the waterfalls, accompanied with the dogs. We had wine at the top of the mountain, enjoying the beautiful sunset!
