Idyllic stay in a beautiful location
Stayed for 4 nights in this lovely house, really comfortable and well maintained. It really is just like the photographs show, right on the water front, fabulous views and so peaceful. The island is connected by a causeway and it is about a 10 minute drive to the main front of Knysna where there are plenty of good restaurants. There are also 3 restaurants on the island. The free use of bicycles was appreciated, a lovely morning spent cycling around the island! Michelle and Gabby made us very welcome and gave us good advice about the locality. Breakfast was excellent. In summary, stay here and you won't regret it!

Beautiful guesthouse in perfect location
Beautiful guesthouse in perfect setting on leisure island, from the front porch. Fantastic room in the small nice garden with a plunge pool. Great breakfast served with attention.

Michelle has generosity and warmth. She really made us feel special.
The breakfast was amazing. Michelle was attentive and made us feel relaxed and at home! The house itself is beautiful, comfortable, perfectly located, bright and spacious. The garden is perfectly manicured and tranquil. The views from the balcony are breathtaking. The area is safe and the lagoon is right on the doorstep. I've never felt more relaxed.

Impeccable accommodation with free bikes and kayaks
Fantastic property on idyllic Leisure Isle, super modern, clean and comfortable! Very nice room, top-notch bathroom, impressive communal rooms (what a living room and deck!). We loved to explore the surroundings with their free bikes and kayaks - such a great benefit of staying at this guest house! Michelle and Gabby were the perfect hosts for our two-night stay. The breakfast with a view of the pool and the manicured gardens was excellent as well. Apart from the somewhat unpredictable weather, our stay couldn’t have been better! We’ll return for sure.

Fantastic guesthouse in a quiet part of Knysna
It’s a fantastic, quiet, location. The guesthouse is great and has all required facilities in a modern style. Also, the guesthouse accommodates for the loadshedding, so we didn’t feel any impact if that. Michelle is so kind! Always in for a nice chat and helps to make restaurant reservations.

Home away from home
Everything exceeded expectations. Gabby was/is a fantastic hostess with a very down to earth and welcoming personality. Making us feel right at home and assisting/answering any questions we had. The guest house location is absolutely breathtaking, overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. Everything felt very peaceful and relaxing. The house itself is absolutely lovely. It includes a pool, cosy lounge with fireplace, dining room with coffee, among other thing's. There's also full access to the equipment (kayak/canoe/bicycles, etc.). Finally, Gabby was all too happy to accomodate our dietary requirements and made us feel as if we were dining in a little fancy restaurant with a scrumptious breakfast. Thank you so much Gabby! Definitely our place of choice the next time we're in the area again

Perfect. Wish it was a longer stay.
The host was so sweet and welcoming. The house is the coziest house we stayed at along the garden route. it is very clean. It is located on leisure island which is very safe. The homemade breakfast was the best we had during our stay in South Africa (homemade eggs, flapjacks, fresh fruits and more). The house is located right infront of the water bay where you can have the most peaceful walk.
