"The Loft" is a stylish, upmarket cottage/apartment that sleeps 2 in the Knysna countryside on the popular Garden Route. It is the only apartment on the property so no other guests to disturb the peaceful setting. The apartment is decorated in an understated stylish way, with splashes of romantic red throughout, giving it an upmarket country feel and making it popular with honeymoon couples. It is completely private with its own entrance and shaded parking, although it does form part of the main buildings on the property where the owners reside. The spacious deck has a Weber barbeque, patio furniture and sun umbrella it overlooks fields and forest. Guests are permitted to make use of the swimming pool on the property. The apartment has a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom with bath and shower, a free standing air-conditioning unit for those hot summer nights and heaters and an electric blanket for winter. The bedroom follows from the open plan lounge/dining/kitchenette, equipped with everything to make your stay comfortable, including free WiFi and DSTV - full bouquet. Please note that very tall people might find the "loft" structure restricting.
My name is Tina Robinson, I am married to Anthony and have two sons, Miles and Wesley, who grew up in Knysna but have both recently spread their wings and now live in Cape Town. We have been the owners of "Moorlands" and "The Loft" for over twenty years. I am a yoga teacher and am a joint member of Lotus Yoga Studio in Knysna where I teach during the week. I am a vegetarian and try my best to tread lightly on the earth. I enjoy decorating so the apartment has seen many décor changes over the years. Anthony and I both love animals and we share our home with 4 dogs and 3 cats. Our two old ladies (15&12) are border collie/Australian cattle dog crossed and our two young dogs are very energetic not quite pure border collie sisters (rescue dogs). They are all very dearly loved. Our dogs enjoy our guests and will make themselves at home very quickly if invited, but we do ask guests not to allow them inside or to feed them. I love living in the country and have thoroughly enjoyed sharing our beautiful 9 hectare property - with the most stunning views - with so many guests over the years. The Loft has been in operation for almost 19 years.
Rheenendal was recently featured in "Country life" (March 2016 issue). It is a beautiful rural area just outside popular Knysna (10 min) bordering on farms, forests, mountains and the Garden Route National park. The Rheenendal road forms part of the historic 7 passes road that used to link Knysna to George before the current road (N2) was built We are home to the "Rheenendal Ramble" with many interesting places to visit and enjoy. From picnic spots to forest walks, cycling routes, restaurants, beautiful scenic drives, we have it all, and still in close vicinity to the beaches, golf courses and Knysna town with shops and restaurants where all your needs will be catered for. It is no wonder this is such a popular tourist area, let’s hope national exposure will not spoil this very special 'off the beaten track' route too much.
