Reviews for Knysna Houseboats
We went here in a sunday to rent a boat for a day. The company was found in a restaurant, it was kind of a search. The woman in the office told us that we couldnt rent a boat for a day in the weekend. Eventhough there were 6 boats in the harbor. There was in flexibility or cooperation. Very disapointing.
Amazing experience, staff is super friendly. On arrival you are made comfortable with your boat and the lagoon. Boats are kitted out with all the items you need for your stay on the lagoon. Managing the boat is fairly easy. Escape to tranquility and beauty of the lagoon. #knysnahouseboats #knysna #gardenroute
A great experience! Clean, well equipped boats which are comfortable and easy to handle. Staff that are super friendly and very helpful! The evening mooring spots are lovely and protected from most of the wind. A great getaway which everyone can enjoy, my 6 year old loved it! We will be back for sure
Their service and staff is extremely friendly and the boats are spotless, the only downside was the fact that there wasnt enough coffee, sugar and general items and unfortunately being on a boat...you cannot go out to buy these things at any time. I would recommend them to anyone. Just a bit more planning:)
A great experience to say the least.Overnight areas are quiet and very very scenic.Driving the boat is rather easy.Living on the boat is nice with all amenities on offer.Beds are comfortable but small, I am 6.2 and just squeezed in.At booking in, staff are friendly.We had an amazing time.
Best experience amazing views
Amazing day on the lagoon. Safe. Very well equipped boat. Clean.
If you haven't skippered a boat before, you might want to watch the competency video twice so that the supplied reading material makes sense. The boats are clean & well maintained. Just try no get stuck in a sand bank. You'll have to get out the boat and push it out. Don't damage the motor. Gary will charge you for the repair & probably hold your deposit.
Awesome property to stay... Amazing view.... Very hospitable staff.... Great atmosphere... A place to definitely visit.... Pure bliss
To hire a houseboat and explore the Knysna Lagoon is simply one of the best holiday experiences you can get in South Africa.
Thank you for this awesome stay in Knysna and on your house boats. Aicha was a huge asset to us and helped us even phoned us on the road to see if we alright. Excellent. Would highly recommend a small cheap fish finder onboard. This will also assist in depth (sand banks) and also fish. I will come back over and over if the boats had this. Overall excellent stay and a big thank you to peter and christo for going out there way for us. See ya soon again guys.
Was absolutly awsome! Christo was wonderful and helpful, it was really nice that Aichia had called us to find out if all was ok on our way up due to protest action along our trip, the ladies need maybe a small bucket under in the cupboard under the sink to throw things away in a packet put inside and the men can use the same bucket to wash off the deck! Thanks again for everything!
