Magnificent view and incredible villa
This place is amazing. The location - right on a cliff with a narrow path that leads to secluded beach, ocean waves seen and heard from your room. The house,is very well maintained and it is huge. There is a reception in day time, and they are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is simple and good. The area is calm, safe, and marvellous. We look forward to come here again, for at least a week

The ONLY place to stay in Knysna!
This place is beyond belief! The views of the ocean are magnificent and the place is spotless - so clean! The accomodations are beautifully decorated. If you are looking for a place to relax, this is it! Nico, the owner, is amazing. He goes "over the top" to make sure you have a fabulous time and is extremely helpful in sharing sights to see in the area. We stayed at Brenton on the Rocks for three days and didn't want to leave! We'll definitely be back!
