Knysna is set between the eastern and western Capes and is a great place to stop off on the way between the 2. Situated on a lagoon with the headlands separating it from the sea, it offers a perfect base to relax and visit the various beaches and natural splendours.
The falcons view sits up the hill and offers splendid views from the veranda and front rooms. The room we were in was spacious, but the bathroom was even larger, a jacuzzi helped soak away the long drive and there was a separate shower as well.
The staff were super helpful and friendly and a welcome drink was on offer. It is an easy stroll down to the town and the quays ( slightly !!, steeper on the way back), the house was owned by Thiessen and he was said to look at his plant from the house to make sure his workers were putting in a proper shift of work.
The breakfast was substantial and covered the gambit from a tremendous selection of fruits, breads and of course cooked foods.
