Beautiful Ocean Views in Knysna
Our room was small, but very well designed and the view was to die for. Sitting outside at night was incredible. They have larger rooms and they all have a great view. Breakfast was very good.

The location was great, the ocean views were stunning, and we saw dolphins enjoying some play time in the afernoon. The staff and owner were very friendly and hospitable and made us feel at home from the time we arrived until we departed.
