Kanonkop Guesthouse

Kanonkop House is a luxury guest house on Kanonkop Hill in Knysna with views of the forest, the lagoon and the Indian Ocean. A small family-owned, family-run guest house, Kanonkop House offers excellent service, luxurious accommodation, large rooms and not a floral print in sight.

At Kanonkop you could easily feel like a guest in a wealthy friend's house as the family Conyers sets about making you feel comfortable, relaxed and rather privileged. Perched high on the hill overlooking the large lagoon and impressive Knysna heads, is a small, intimate and luxurious guest house for discerning travellers wary of impersonal hotels.

The five rooms are large, individually decorated by top designers and open out onto a view over the lagoon with a flourish. The sensational Paradise suite occupies the entire third floor and absorbs the wonderful view all the way into the luxuriuos bathroom. The standard suites remain significant even by comparison, with large terraces, lagoon-views and modern décor.

The house has a wonderful bar, stocked with wines, whiskies and malts galore; a breakfast terrace at the poolside looks out over the lagoon preparing you for a day of sight-seeing and inclement weather will see you inside the cosy dining room. The Knysna Heights Villa is an ubber-luxurious triple-storey fully serviced house higher up on the hill available with breakfast included or self-catering for complete privacy.

Surval Boutique Olive Estate

Close your eyes and imagine blue skies, manicured lawns and a country side manor overlooking orchards and a backdrop of mountains. And well, you’re on the doorstep of the elegant and sophisticated Surval Boutique Olive Estate in Oudtshoorn.

De Denne Guest House

Cadbury’s got his eye on you. And it’s a big one. He’s got the largest peeper of any land animal. And Suzie’s his missus so watch your step. Johan and Louise Keller are billed as the owners but what’s the bet their resident counterparts are the real deal here? This is a working farm. An ostrich one. Cadbury and Suzie are great, big, flightless birds. And probably top dogs.
