“Wow!”
Reviewed 24 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Spacious two bed, well equipped, first floor apartment with a large balcony with stunning views. There's a beautiful sheltered pool, bar and braai area which were very welcome on the hot days. Roger and Alva are simply wonderful hosts - they took us on a boat trip around Knysna lagoon and to a beach bar only accessible by boat where we had the best calamari I've had in South Africa. The apartment is around the corner from a family friendly bar/restaurant called Blend which has a playground and does amazing food. I strongly recommend staying here; we'll be back!

Dear Sarah and family
It was an absolute delight having you and your lovely Family to staying in our Apartment. We are very pleased you enjoyed our rather special Swimming Pool, and also the Braais (BBQ's ) you shared with us around it. We were also pleased you enjoyed all the lovely attractions, and things to do and see close by.
We look forward to seeing you again
Roger and Alva

Selecting self catering accommodation is sometimes hit and miss based on pictures and reviews. There were no reviews on Hunters Retreat but since we had stayed at other property owned by Roger & Alva we were confident that all would be well and we were certainly not disappointed!
The property is beautifully positioned with splendid views over the hills and mountains with a balcony for relaxing with a sundowner (or two!). Comprehensively equipped and comfortable furnishings, the apartment was an ideal base for us to explore Knysna and the surrounding areas which offer a huge variety of options.
Highlights for us was golf at Goose Valley and Simola, dinner at Freshline Fisheries (you must go!) breakfast at East Head Cafe (get there early or queue, it's so good) and Friday night entertainment at Blend just a short drive or walk from the property.
Roger & Alva were perfect hosts and went out of their way to make this stay in Knysna one to remember. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very helpful with good recommendations on local things to do and places to see.
