This was the most amazing accommodation. The room was beautiful with a jacuzzi bath above the bed and wonderful views.I must mention the breakfast (esp the pancakes) which were out of this world. 2 nights really wasn't enough! very convenient for exploring Knysna and some great little craft shops in the surrounding area.Lovely touches such as a bottle of champagne when we arrived.
