“Not perfect but very lovely”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

If you want something pristine and perfect this isn't for you The wiring is a bit dodgy and for our first night we had two toasters and no kettle. If you don't mind finding your inner hippy this place is perfect. The property is lovely, full of interesting antiques and bits and bobs, the rooms are cosy and homely. The garden and location right on the water are great. Plus you are close to everything in Knysna.
And the welcome we got was brilliant, the owner even gave us a lift to and from dinner as the weather was awful.
I would not want to change the intrinsic nature of the property which was so endearing but I think for the price a pint of milk as a welcome would be much appreciated.

Room Tip: We stayed in lovers nest which is a very sweet cosy room with direct access to the water and a small...

Two Angels is an absolute piece of heaven. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay the scenery and the peace and quiet. The service was excellent and we felt right at home from our arrival to our departure. Please just check the bathroom plumbing of the Love Nest.

We stayed 5 nights in August in the "Angel's Lair" and feel we couldn't have chosen a better property. TwoAngels is on the lagoon edge near to the Heads and the sea is a wonderful constant presence. Our room had a broad and private verandah where we spent lots of time enjoying the peace and the views. The rooms are cosy, quirky and tastefully furnished - all the mod-cons we needed were there too.

The Knysna heads in August is quiet and a nice place to stay. You're a short walk from the wonderful East Head cafe which we went to most mornings for breakfast. All the other Knysna facilities are a short drive away too.

We enjoyed meeting Robert and his staff, who were all wonderfully welcoming and friendly. We'd like to return to Knysna and we know where we'll stay!

A stunning location right on the water with magnificent views. Very friendly reception by Karen and Robert. Rooms are beautiful and spacious verandah lends itself to long leisurely hours of just lounging and enjoying the view. (We enjoyed the day bed) Self-catering, but well-equipped kitchen.

We had the most wonderful two days at Two Angels. We loved the views and could not stop taking pictures. The house and garden is beautiful. We will be back for another visit and next time will be for longer.

A marvelous stay with the family. Private, breathtaking and a place to stay deserving of the view. Magical from the day we arrived to the day we left. Kayaking... lounging...exploring the lagoon with the kids.... a MUST STAY!

The pictures and description on their website does not do this place justice. Which is why we were surprised by how beautiful, charming and quaint this guest house is.

The location, at the lagoon's edge, is simply spectacular. You can take on of the many sit-on-top kayaks and walk down the steps into the water. The hosts are genuinely welcoming - it feels as if you're visiting friends. No request was an issue.

The rooms are well appointed and well equipped for self-catering. We would have loved to extend our stay and will be back for longer.
