Wonderful welcome from Rose and stunning suite with a view of Thesen Island and Knysna Heads. 2 night stay and looking forwards to both nights. Residential location hides a lovely complex, electric gate entry and modern and well appointed rooms.

We travelled as 3 couples and we were all delighted with our rooms. Breakfast was superb and the owner spoke to us each morning and recommended local attractions. This was so helpful as we only had 2 days in Kysna. We would definitely return to this guesthouse.
