“Nature-lovers Haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2008

We experienced a unique break-away, with visiting bushbuck, monkeys and stunning birdlife. Nothing better than swinging in a hammock under ancient indigenous trees letting Nature embrace one's spirit again. This Knysna self-catering jewel did not win a National Award for nothing!

  • Liked — Excellent value for money that exceeded our expectations

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2008

After a hectic time, the picturesque and well-equipped Forest Edge self-catering cottages in Knysna on the Garden Route were the perfect place to reconnect with our souls. From the unexpected little gift on our arrival to the superb service throughout, we could not have asked for better. Romantic Forest Walks, cosy log fires with well-stocked movie library, reading in the hammock, great birdwatching and photographic opportunities. A reasonably priced gem that exceeds expectations!

  • Liked — Excellent authentic venue & service, reasonably priced quality; genuine passion to please
  • Disliked — Intermittent Internet access due to remote location
  • Stayed August 2008, travelled as a couple
