This is your property ?


The fully equipped historic gold-mining style cottages sleep up to 5 persons each and offer extras like a cozy fireplace, outside barbeque, TV/video, a small library of books&videos and a microwave. Child and pet friendly. A jewel of the Garden Route. Spectacular forest walking / mountain biking trails. Romantic picnics. Sheltered hammocks. Enjoy Knysna town, adventure activities, tourist attractions and spotless, sunny, safe beaches a leisurely 20 minutes away. Take an outdoor hot water shower on your return from the beach.

After an emerald day, mellow with sundowners on the verandah and watch a bushbuck or baboon family come to the dam to drink. Marvel at the birdlife. Barbeque under the stars. Flitting fireflies and the evocative calls of nightjars add to the enchantment.
