Reviewed 18 March 2011

Highly recommend it to all travelling from Europe as Erik and Ypie are linguists of considerable note, speaking English through to Russian and were very hospitable, helpful and fun to be with.

This house is a good choice for a stay in the Knysna area, particularly for those who prefer a quiet an relaxing atmosphere. A wonderful garden with swimming pool, parasols and sun beds, lovely hosts, a luxury room, excellent breakfast with a buffet and a choice of hot main course, some nice restaurants and the Heads in the neighborhood made our stay unforgettable.
The downdown area is only a short drive away and the hosts provide a lot of excellent tips for activities in the area.

We found this guest house on trip advisor during our trip to Knysna and decided to stay. The owners were lovely people and didnt seem to mind us just turning up to see if they had a room for the night. The area was beautiful, lovely views while eating breakfast. Wish we could have stayed there longer to try out the lovely looking pool. It is a great location, a short drive to the heads and the lovely beaches of the isle and only 5-10 mins drive to the waterfront.

Nice accommodation, great location and lovely people.

Perfectly placed for exploring George, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and the hinterland.

With no idea of where to stay we arrived in Knysna late morning on 17 February. The owner of a coffee shop in the town centre recommended two places and by a brilliant stroke of good fortune they were both full. With no further ideas we decided to follow our noses up the heights behind the golf course, and came to a 'T' junction.
A toss of the coin and we turned left to find a 'No through road' sign. Something told us to continue and a little way beyond it the sign board for Knysna Country House appeared.
The lady on duty welcomed us with smiles and led us on a tour of inspection. Having seen the wonderful accommodation, view from the balcony and the first bedroom, we wished we could have booked for a week.
When Ypie met us later in the day we felt like returning family and I'm almost reluctant to say more in case we are never able to find a vacant date in the future!

The Knysna Country House is a lovely guest house. The rooms are well furnished and comfortable and the staff friendly. The owners are very helpful in discussing the area and what there is to do.
Looking out at the view over breakfast was very peaceful and relaxing, before a day spent swinging from trees or visiting the little harbour.
Next time I am in Knysna I will certainly be staying here.
