    Einzigartige Ausblicke, insbesondere vom Coney Glen Room, sowohl auf den indischen Ozean als auch auf die Lagune von Knysna. Sehr freundliches hilfsbereites Personal, das einen, bei Bedarf, mit guten Ratschlägen und Restauranttips versorgt. Es gibt überall im Haus ein stabiles WLAN, was ja heutzutage immer wichtiger wird. Das Frühstück ist sehr sehr gut und frisch zubereitet, der Kaffee wird jedem Tisch in einer French-Press Maschine serviert. Die Auswahl des Buffets ist mehr als ausreichend.

    Besonders schönes B&B mit Traumblick

    Ein liebevoll geführtes, sehr persönliches Bed&Breakfast. Da wir die einzigen Gäste im Haus waren, kam das Gefühl auf, in ener eigenen Villa mit Personal zu sein. Abends sitzt man gemütlich am Kamin und genießt den herrlichen Blick von den Heads.
