This is a lovely little guest house situated about half way on the way to the Knysna Heads. The hostess / owner is extremely hands on and it is one of those great "home from home" places. I will definitely go back (especially for the sublime breakfast!) and can't wait for my next trip to Knysna. Hats off to Karen...

Very good value, clean and pleasant accommodation, and very friendly hostess, Karen. The area is quiet, pleasant and relatively accessible from the main road. We will most definitely use this venue again.
