Kanonkop House

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.


Five large suites and a three-bedroom private villa; en suite bathrooms; bed and breakfast accommodation; cotton linen; underfloor heating; ceiling fans; entertainment centre; tea/coffee; robes and slippers; hair dryer; toiletries; bar and lounge; breakfast terrace and dining area; swimming pool; laundry and safe parking


With the Croyners you're well connected to the outdoor world. Mark will take you water skiing and wake boarding, he'll even show you how if you've never done it before; you can use their kayaks, mountain bikes and passes to several premium golf courses along the Garden Route. In addition the gamut of Knysna attractions awaits: fishing trips, sunset cruises; forest hikes; beach days and the restaurants, shops and attractions of Knysna town.
