Host Information

9.9
Host review score

It has a true feeling of nature and natural caring as we are on the edge of the Knysna salt water lagoon and with 60+ birds and waders that come and go in the course of a year.A salt waterswimming pool awaits you on the hot days in summer. A deck to view the lagoon and the Knysna Heads from afar. You never want to leave as you start to unwind and relax with us. Pollution free environment is so important to us.
We both enjoy each day as we start to be with our guests all of them are special in their own way. Gav likes to go to golf when he can and also for a sail on the lagoon if time allows. I like the natural way of life and the walks that one can take on the beaches and into the forest and when I can I take my dog Fern with me.
Our Neighbourhood is not a large one only a few neighbours on The Point where our guesthouse is situated so we have not a lot of people coming and going past our garden with pool and the deck overlooking the natural lagoon.
