Kanonkop House and the wonderful Conyer family were undoubtedly the highlight of our travels along the Garden Route.
What a gem of a place this is - beautifully presented in every way. The welcome we received from our hosts and the warm kindness they showed our family throughout our stay, was outstanding - it was more like visiting good friends , which by the time we left we felt we had become.
The fabulous decor and superbly comfortable rooms and beds, were much appreciated after a long drive - with every last attention to detail thought out - and drinks at the bar every evening prior to going out for dinner, was a great bonus especially if we could share them with Mark or Chris whilst they helped us plan our next day's activities. Mark had already pre-booked all our restaurants prior to our arrival, and each one was fabulous [ especially "The Olive Tree's" steaks! ], and taxi's were arranged for us every night too. We didn't have to think about a thing - Mark booked our tee-off times at Pezula and Simola Golf courses, and even took our sons out water skiing at dawn on the lagoon. A successful first experience and Jamie is still grateful you kept him up and on the water rather than in it!
Breakfasts are freshly prepared and served on crisp linen tablecloths. Every kind of cooked breakfast offered with omlettes being their speciality - you name your filling and they'll do it. Wonderful choices of cereals, jams and fresh breads all washed down with teas, coffees and heavenly fruit smoothies - bliss !
Kanonkop truly is a piece of paradise with wonderful views onto Knysna's lagoon and the Heads. Mark and Chris will gladly recommend lots of activities to do and places to see, but if relaxing by the pool within the beautiful gardens and sipping on some wonderful chilled South African wine is more your scene, then this is the place to be!
If you do nothing else, make Kanonkop House the place to stay when driving along the Garden Route - you will NOT be disappointed.
Thanks again to you ALL for making those 4 days so special for us - wonderful memories for our first visit to your beautiful country. We would love to return.
