Thesen Island Suburb of Knysna

Lovely - Lovely place!

Stormsriver Village Town of Tsitsikamma

Quaint - We loved the food at Marilyn's. I know the brilliant 60s icon decor is really special but we thoroughly enjoyed the food. Tasty, good quality food! Lack of any ATM's was a bit disappointing but the little bottle store was ready to help.

De Bakke (Mossel Bay) Suburb of Mossel Bay

Mossel Bay is so clean! - Before we decided to have a holiday in Mossel Bay, a friend commented that it was 'so clean'. Absolutely true. Even though the Buffalo Rally was on while we were there, everything was well controlled. And the day after some 3000 bikers had left, the campsite was spotless again. The city is so well-kept, it is a real example for us in Gauteng where litter is the order of the day. Santos Beach doesn't have waves so is great for 'exercise swimming'; however, Dias Beach, just up the road does have great waves. All in all a great holiday!

Best kept secret - Beautiful scenery, range of good accommodation, excellent restaurants, wonderful beaches, interesting shops. Also an ideal base from which to explore the klein karoo and numerous mountain passes.

Dana Bay Suburb of Mossel Bay

Small town outside Mossel Bay - If you want to be outside Mossel Bay to enjoy the peace and tranquil surroundings then stay in Dana bay and explore around it

Leisure Island Suburb of Knysna

The place to stay in Knysna - It ticks so many boxes. Outstanding, the best place to stay in Knysna. Lovely setting, great walks and other activities - swimming, tennis, bowls etc. Very pretty island with its own coffee shop. Locals very friendly. Good security.

Pezula Golf Estate Suburb of Knysna

Louther Visit to Pezula - Absolutely great course. Extremely undulating fairways with severe slopes into thick bush at places and deep pot-bunkers creates a severe test of skill and nerves. Large, fast and undulating greens makes for terrifying puts. Great test of golf. Friendly staff at entrance (caddy master) and pro shop. Thank you for a top class experience.

Diaz Beach Suburb of Mossel Bay

Rustigheid - Dit is een van die mooiste en skoonste strande wat daar is. Dit is lekker om net te stap en die natuurskoon te bewonder.

Knysna Central Suburb of Knysna

To commercialised - Knysna is too touristy and busy. Probably great for the young and fashionable but not the place to relax in.

Sedgefield Town of Western Cape

Peaceful Haven - We visited Sedgefield as a family for one week and absolutely loved our stay. It is really quiet and peaceful. Very picturesque...There is a beautiful beach and lagoon for kids. If the weather isn't great there are several little coffee shops and restaurants to go to. Will go again!

Pinnacle Point Suburb of Mossel Bay

Exquisite - I am not a golfer (my husband is) so did not play but the course is beyond beautiful with the sea as your view. We would walk the course's path everyday to the clubhouse and back for exercise. We enjoyed great breakfasts and dinner at clubhouse. Shuttle service at estate is wonderfully convenient. Give them a call and they collect you from anywhere and drop you wherever you want to go within the Estate. The casino and spa in on your doorstep if that's your thing. Two beaches. Oyster beach is not for swimming. We took walks down to Eden beach and then all the way to the caves. We tried St Blaize trail but quickly turned back upon my son seeing a puffadder!

Sedgefield Town of Western Cape

Village feeling - Sedgefield has a village feeling, forget about fastfood, buy from the locals, fresh tasty, friendly. Shop owners are warm friendly and helpful, all reasonably priced. at the fishing shop the gent spent an hour initiating me to sea fishing, yet not over selling. at the local take aways, you wait a bit longer but fresh and delicious. the beaches are not overly crowded and well kept. Central to the area, and around the corner from , "Oysters are Us", Groen and Swart Vlei beach, sundowners at Wilderness. Love Sedgefield, Love the Community.

THE BEST - We absolutely love KNYSNA. Friendly town. Loads to see and awesome restaurants. Magnificent views. Our favourite holiday destination!!! Love doing shopping in Knysna and buy a lot of my clothes there. Not as hectic as KZN and would highly recommend Knysna. Beaches in the area is beautiful and the color of the sea is awesome.

Seaside Village - Although Plettenberg Bay has grown over the years, it still retains is laid back vibe, with amazing beaches, endless activities (water or land based). As a family it is a great destination with a variety of child friendly options for kids and teenagers alike.

Really relaxing area! - Sedgefield is great - it's relaxing and there are a lot of things to do in the surrounding areas. It has a few shops where you can buy the necessities and some restaurants if need be. We spent most of our time in the nearby areas. The forests and sea is wonderfully atmospheric!
