What a great little place to stay. We stayed for 3 nights. Johan and Wim couldn't have been more welcoming or accommodating. Gorgeous location a quiet street but close to town. So relaxed you can please yourself when you eat what you do. Can't recommend it enough.

We were made to feel as...

We were attracted to it as it was situated in a quiet part of Knysna but within walking distance of restaurants. On arrival, Johan and...

Johan and Wim made us feel very welcome in their home. They are very friendly and helped us get a reservation at one of the best restaurants in Knysna "The Olive Tree" right after we arrived. The rooms were clean and recently remodeled. The beds were very comfortable and the neighborhood is nice and quiet for a good night sleep....
