Here you’ll find a unique and sophisticated environment. We provide a happy, harmonious base from which our visitors can explore and appreciate the legendary scenery of Knysna and the surrounding area.

Pristine pool & decks:
Positioned to make the most of every minute of the African sun, our pool & sun decks are the perfect place to soak up some rays in an oasis-like setting. The water is kept clean & crystal clear through our eco-friendly chlorinator that turns sea salt into natural chlorine. Bathing is a pleasure in a pool free from the odour of harsh chemicals & additives.
Lapa & braai:
Guests can ‘go native’ & enjoy a true taste of South Africa in our thatched lapa (shelter), complete with Weber braai & picnic table. Braai tongs, cutlery, china & glassware, etc. are provided in each studio.
Gather round the fire:
Next to the lapa & braai area is one of our most unique garden features - an outdoor fireplace, complete with seating & wood storage area. Here guests can gather round the flickering flames after a braai or a night out to enjoy a drink & good conversation under the stars.

Accommodation is cleaned once a week and towels and sheets are changed weekly.
Our Eco-friendly environment:
Set in one of the most beautiful and unspoiled areas of the Cape, we care as much about the environment as we do our guests. The effects of climate change in the Garden Route, especially in the form of reduced rainfall, have made us acutely aware of our environmental responsibilities.
To reduce our electricity consumption and carbon footprint, we have installed solar panels to heat all our water.
We have installed a 5,000 litre storage tank to collect rainwater from the roof, thus eliminating the need to use mains water for garden and pool maintenance.
To cut back on water usage we have planted our garden with drought-tolerant indigenous plants and trees that attract a wide variety of birds.
