Excellent spot for a holiday
The stay at Blue Oyster was amazing. The hostess, Judith, made contact immediately after I had made the booking. The check-in and check out was without hassles. The hostess and the staff were wonderful, professional, efficient and friendly. I will definitely go back :). It was peaceful and the view from the bedroom was great. Zinlte

Blue Oyster - a hidden gem
Judith is a great host and is ably assisted by Toumbe. Nothing was too much trouble for them, reservations for dinner, information on what to do and where to visit. The house is enormous - we stayed in the Mykonos room which has amazing views over the lagoon and the area is 100% safe. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again

Great Property with Stunning Views
Very much enjoyed our stay at Blue Oyster. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived. The room was very clean and comfortable with a very spacious bathroom. And the view was magnificent! Also enjoyed the breakfast and informative conversation with the owner and staff. Highly recommended!

Great views of Knysna
I stayed for 2 nights with my father and we had a wonderful stay at the Blue Oyster with comfortable beds and very clean room with an amazing view overlooking Knysna. The homemade breakfast were delicious with another amazing view of the Bay. The location is in a quiet neighbourhood at the top of a hill but it breathtaking views is worth effort. It's less than a five minute drive to the Waterfront where's plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Judith (owner) recommended a great seafood restaurant and the staff were helpful at all times.

Brilliant time at the Blue Oyster
We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Oyster. Judith is so friendly and welcoming and she constantly goes the extra mile to make sure her guests have the best possible time whether it's lending you a plug adaptor or beach parasol or bringing you a jug of iced sparkling water to the pool. She has a great team and Ntombi greets you at breakfast every morning with a big smile and advice on places to go around Knysna. Breakfast is delicious and includes fresh fruit and a hot breakfast with eggs cooked however you choose. The view from the breakfast room (and all around the Blue Oyster including our bedroom) is stunning. Everywhere is tastefully decorated and immaculate. We loved our room and balcony and were so well looked after that we extended our 3 night stay to 5 nights. I would definitely recommend the Blue Oyster - it's a lovely place with exceptional service.
