Reviewed 22 November 2012

if you want to relax on your trip through africa i can recomment you to stay in the knysna country house! This bed and breakfast is situated on the hills beside Knysna and has a beautifull view over Knysna and the lagune in 5-10 minutes from centre and harbor with its nice restaurants. The dutch owners will help you with everything and give you all attention you need. Their intention is to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Breakfast is good, they have nice rooms and there is a good looking swimming pool and nice garden! You cannot wish more. I hope your stay will be as good as ours and we thank the owners for everything.

Room Tip: All rooms where nice

We had two wonderful days in Knysna Country House. We felt really ay home. We will thank Ypie en Erik for that. They have done everything to make our stay unforgettable. Of course the breakfast and especially the view was fantastic. They advised us very well where to eat and other possibilities in and around Knysna.
It was an unforgettable experience!

We stayed 2 nights with Ypie & Erik and as we travelled through the whole of
south Africa and stayed in several B&B's, we can surely say that this B&B was
one on it's own. Nice rooms, delicious breakfast and very friendly hosts.
If you want to go to Knysna and visit the heads... don't forget to head to
Knysna Country House.... Nice to know, children are also very welcome and
as a parent this is very important.

thnks again Ypie & Erik

Room Tip: They have a room that fits your situation, it is quiet everywhere

We stayed for 3 nights in mid October 2012. Excellent location, very quiet and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Ypie and Erik were very welcoming, advising on best places to eat and sights to see and nothing was too much trouble for them. I would strongly recommend staying here if you have the chance.

Room Tip: All rooms look over the garden and back of the house so are very quiet and have a lovely view.

We stayed 2 nights. Room 6 - deluxe room with balcony. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Good directions from main road and good secure parking. Quiet area. Recommended to eat at Mo's on Rex and not disappointed - about 5 mins drive.
Lovely large room, excellent bed/pillows/shower/bath robes. Fridge and safe. Delightful balcony (with awning) to sit and watch the birds.
Our hosts, Ypie and Erik could not have been more friendly or helpful - Eating out, trip to Featherbed, use of the internet etc. Could happily have stayed much longer. First Class breakfasts. Delightful resident doggies (and we are not really doggy people)
Excellent value.

Room Tip: Room 6 deluxe with balcony roomy and well worth the little extra.

If we ever go to Knysna again, we wil certainly stay at knysna Country House!
