Beautiful Place in Knysna island (south Africa). Very pleasant Bed and Breakfast. Good Breakfast and charming Bedrooms. Reception, nice & discreet people. I recommend the place for vacation, morning walk & see the birds.

The wonderful thing about my stay at Cunninghams was the caring,friendly reception upon arrival. The super welcome made me feel relaxed immediately and the room had adequate information about Knysa which was very useful. They served an excellent breakfast as well so I shall have no hesitation in recommending it to my friends.

Nice little place to stay. Great location. Very welcoming and friendly hosts. Lovely honesty bar by the pool. We had a great time in Knysna - great forest walks and Nature's Valley beach is stunning. Kayaking at Storms River Mouth great but very cold - make sure you get a wetsuit.

I recently had the pleasure of staying here with my partner and a friend.

We found the accomodation very well presented and everything that we needed. We were greeted by Trish as the owner was away and she was very friendly and helpful. The location is lovely and we enjoyed a long walk around the island in the afternoon.

I would definitely return next time I am in Knysna and would recommend it to anyone looking for value for money. The car being washed was a very nice touch too.

Stayed for 3 nights in March. Its a lovely location on Leisure island, just outside the town of Knysna. We had a smashing room and the staff were so helpful and provided us with tips on local restraurants which the locals used, always the best!
Very comfortable, nice peaceful gardens and great breakfasts. its a real find and would reccommend this friendly guest house to everyone.

A gem of a place on Leisure Island. The rooms are well presented with all accessories you need ,from international electrical adaptors to a hairdryer. The swimming pool was a pleasant relief after a hot day sightseeing. The breakfasts were amazing and Tim was helpfulness personified.
And to cap it all , a very dusty car was washed before wwe used it the next day!

Room Tip: choose an upstairs room overlooking the swimming pool if possible

We spent two great nights in this guest house. The location is very good on the very beautiful leisure island. The host is very friendly and helps wherever he can, the pool area is great to relax. And: They even washed our car. The owner believes, that cars run better when washed - and it indeed did :)

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple
