Knysna Country House in Knysna

The Knysna Country House offers stylish yet comfortable 4 Star accommodation in the peaceful and leafy suburb of Hunters Home in Knysna, along the splendid Garden Route, less than two minutes from the Knysna Golf Course and not even 5 minutes from the Pezula Championship Golf Course, while the Jack Nicklaus’ signature course of Simola is a mere 20 minute drive away.

The guesthouse offers bed & breakfast with a variety of rooms to choose from. From the entry-level Standard Rooms to the more spacious and luxurious Luxury Rooms, and from the thatched Luxury Garden Cottage for our honeymooners and guests looking for a bit of privacy, to the Family Unit for families or friends travelling together.

The lush garden is home to a variety of birds, including the funky looking African Hoepoe, the colorful indigenous Knysna Loerie, the elegant Southern Double Collared Sunbird as well as the black and white spotted Helmeted Guinea Fowl which gave us the inspiration for our logo.

The large swimming pool, with the enticing image of the Knysna seahorse underneath the sparkling blue waters is inviting at any time of the day, and the comfortable sun loungers, complimentary bath towels and large umbrellas providing a much needed shaded spot may find you lounging by the pool all day…

The Norwegian owners Anita and Jarle Gjerde have opened their home to be run as a guesthouse by us, Erik Ekkelkamp and Ypie Kingma. We are originally from The Netherlands, but made South Africa our new home in 1999. We have been in the hospitality industry ever since, run an exclusive tour company as well, and look forward to sharing the secrets Knysna and its surrounding areas offer with you!

Imagine coming home after a long day travelling, playing golf or sightseeing, and either taking a dip in the pool or enjoying a glass of wine on the balcony overlooking Knysna town and the Lagoon as the African sun sets behind the majestic Outeniqua Mountains and you will realize you have truly found your piece of paradise…

Bad experience, dirty bathroom, no aircon, snowing television screen, dogs in the breakfast room, no view on garden, and this was a luxury guest room. The room was very noisy, you could hear your neighbors in bed.The lady owner, Dutch Friezin, told us: you are as guest in my house and if you are satisfied you can go. How kind?And this was not for free.Don't go. Advice for Fairfield and Fox Reizen, don't book this again for Dutch travelers.

"Pleasant Staff"

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. We received a warm welcome from the staff, they really went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and were very accommodating. It felt like home away from home. I will definitely recommend the place to anyone.
