We stayed at African Breeze as part of a short road trip of the Garden Route. Our room was upgraded and we absolutely loved the room. We ended up spending a very short time at the Guest House itself with a latish check in and a early departure to a wedding we had to attend. It is a beautiful house...

Very well situated, second row from the water, is this lovely guesthouse. We had very large rooms with private terraces as well as access to a large pool terrace. Rooms and grounds are kept spotlessly clean. The breakfast is served in the mainhouse and is very good.

A lovely quiet place to stay, with comfy seating outside in & out of the sun, perfect. Staff were excellent & did a good job at breakfast. Bikes were there for your use if you wish to cycle around the Island. Would definitely return.

Such a beautiful place. The rooms were luxurious and spacious. All what you would expect from a five star hotel. The bathrooms are well equipped and the room has all you need from a HUGE bed to all the channels on DSTV........the outside areas and pool area are so inviting, we could have stayed a full week longer. Thanks Steve...

Three days in an amazing setting, beautifully furnished room overlooking the pool, friendly and helpful staff, memorable breakfasts. Wonderful position for walks, swimming in pool and in sea. Peaceful and everything was spotlessly clean. We most definitely plan to return.

Loved the setting of this property. Like all other travellers, it was all great except for the fact that there is no AC! So I'd say avoid it in summer as it gets very hot in the day with no wind. Otherwise breakfast was great and Steve, our host was very helpful.

South Africa, including Knysna, experienced a few days of unusually hot and humid weather. Normally our guest house is cool in the evenings from the sea breeze that that cools the island in summer. We have fans in all the rooms which are normally quite adequate to keep the room cool.

Stunning room and very peaceful location. Host Stephen was great; very helpful in making local recommendations. Nice poolside area. Beds very comfortable. Great breakfast- fresh fruit salad, best tomato and cheese omelet I've ever had! About a 10 minute drive or so to restaurants.
