Guestbook comments from the owner
Your apartment was a real home away from home, very comfortable and peaceful and we were so well looked after during our stay. Mrs Adams and family 3/01/2010.
Our family of four enjoyed 4 nights in this comfortable apartment close to the downtown, but in its own little bit of Eden. Roger and Alva were absolutely wonderful hosts and very helpful with area information. We wish we could have stayed longer. The featherbed tour is very enjoyable on a nice day allowing for beautiful scenery, exercise and a great buffet lunch. We also enjoyed hiking the Knysna forest, and visiting Plettenburg Bay. We hope to return and would definitely recommend this property to others. It is very comfortable for up to four people. Thank you Roger and Alva, for your hospitality and a wonderful stay.

3 of us stayed in Hunters Retreat for three weeks in February 2013. We were shown wonderful hospitality by our Hosts, , and as Golf was our main interest, it was just a perfect base.
From the Owner
“Having visited South Africa twice and fallen in love with the country, we decided that our real favourite place of many that we have visited is Knysna. It is the complete town, wonderful location, scenery, warm friendly people, and a climate which we have not found better any where in the world. We chose this particular house with it's garden flat because it was in such a wonderful secluded location, very private, and yet within easy distance of everything this town has to offer.”
