Score from 7 reviews Exceptional
Fireplace, beds comfortable, heaters everywhere so were nice and warm, owners and staff very accommodating and helpful. Bent over backwards to assist with alternative accommodation due to invalid mother (original booked had too many stairs which was not noted in description).
Equipment old and very basic, house slept 10 but only 9 plates, tiny fridge etc. Damp a big issue making kitchen cupboards very smelly. Placement of fixtures not thought through to make sense for practical use.
You need a car to get there, but it is a lovely place to relax and listen to birds and watch monkeys when having breakfast under the sun!
Very close to N2, but no noise. Fantastic views and wonderful terrace. Conveniently close if you want to be at the Knysna Elephant Park early morning.
Very nice people. Very helpful and good to talk to. The place is a little bit remote but thanks to it is quiet and good for having a rest. The first place with a real cable TV :-)
Wonderful hosts, absolutely beautiful location and grounds, delicious breakfast, lovely rooms and well stocked kitchen. Can't ask for anymore! Oh, and even a great Saturday morning market nearby!
Not a thing!
The owner welcomed us very friendly and suggested a beautiful place for dinner. We greatly enjoyed the remoteness and quietness of Masescha.
Quiet location set in attractive gardens. Enjoyed a very comfortable and relaxing stay. We were given a warm welcome. We enjoyed a swim in the small swimming pool.
Ray and Angie were the perfect hosts. The shower is great
the fridge makes a lot of noise and it woud be nice to have WIFI in the cottage
Very friendly owners. Stunning valley views from the patio, with wildlife ready for spotting. Pleasant swimming pool. Wonderful change after all the beachside properties I was staying at along the N2 road.
The access road needs improving but there's probably little they can do themselves.
The property and building we stayed in were both beautiful. Lots of birds and monkeys. The building we stayed in was nice and large, great for a family up to 10 people. Pool was nice and the owners were very courteous. Very beautiful landscaping and the birdsong house has it's own deck, Braai area, large outside table for enjoying outdoor meals, and laundry washing machine.
The house had not been well kept when we arrived. It is a self catering facility, and we had to wash all of the pots, dishes, and glasses as there was a greasy film on all of them from non use. There were rusty kitchen tools, silverware, and the Braai grates were rusty as well. The house was full of black mold, we had to run a cycle of bleach through the washing machine before we could use it for our own laundry as it smelled moldy as well. There was a broken pipe in one of the bathrooms so we were limited to one bathroom for the duration of our stay. We stayed for 1 week and I had several braais while I was there , I just had to buy my own meat grate as the grates provided had long rusted. I wish the owners would take better care of that building. Maybe the other buildings are in better shape, bu it seems like such a shame to have this building in such a state of disrepair.
Everything was excellent but the breakfast was awesome - really really nice thanks
The house has all the necessary amenities. The kitchen is well equipped. The beds are comfortable but the bedding can be improved. The bathrooms look ok... They have just been renovated. The kitchen has a foul stench coming from the cupboards which may be due to old or persistent damp. The owner is pleasant and helpful. The location is excellent for those wishing to experience plettenburg bay and knysna.
Wonderful place - could happily live there
Nice isolated escape between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. HIghly recommended and fantastic breakfast! Thanks
good place in a fancy forest, sweet and peaceful house~
Very very friendly and nice owners. Very good breakfast. Very nice surrounding, beautifull garden/park.Good recommondations for activities. They gradet us up to a whole cottage just because there was sufficient space and the weather was bad. It was definetly one of our best stays in South Africa. If you like to stay outside City Center and you enjoy nature this is definetly a fantastic place.
