Great little guest house in Knysna
Without a doubt, this is a perfect place to stay in if you decide to make a stop at Knysna. The hospitality was beyond imagination, the rooms are lovely and the breakfast was exquisite! The owners thought of every little detail to make the stay a very unique experience :-) Just a small note - if you make a booking, make sure you select the relevant no. of guests. We found that the price would have been the same for 1 or 2 guests if we had selected it in advance online, however because we didn't, we payed an extra at the property...

Die Perfektion auf den Punkt gebracht
Wir haben die Unterkunft für 3 Nächte gebucht. Als wir dort angekommen sind, hat uns das Gastgeberpaar Ines & Andy freundlich mit einem Apero begrüsst. Wir bekamen Tipps für Restaurants und Ausflugsziele in und um Knysna, damit wir uns schnell zurecht fanden. Das Zimmer war in einem Top Zustand. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Frühstück war Weltklasse! Jeden morgen gibt es einen Gruss aus der Küche. Die Auswahl und Qualität der Speisen sind 1A. Alles wird täglich frisch zubereitet. Jeder Gast darf zusätzlich eine warme Speise auswählen, die liebevoll von den Gastgebern vorgestellt und serviert werden. Ein so hochstehendes Frühstück haben wir auf unserer Reise nur hier erlebt. Es war einfach sensationell. Für diesen Wunderbaren Aufenthalt möchten wir uns bei Ines & Andy von Herzen bedanken, wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt. Liebe Grüsse Ueli & Reto.

Tolle Gastgeber, sensationelles Frühstück
Tolle Gastgeber, wirklich sensationelles Frühstück (eines der besten Frühstücke, die wie je auf unseren sehr zahlreichen Reisen bekommen haben) mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail. Toller Blick auf die Lagune und viele Dinge, die man ringsherum unternehmen kann. Ein ganz klare Empfehlung, wenn man nach Knysna kommt und eine, besser aber mindestens 2 Nächte bleibt.
