About Hide-Away Guest House

Welcome to Hide Away Guest House Knysna. Offering free Wi-Fi in each of the well-appointed rooms and with unsurpassed views of the estuary and Knysna Heads, Hide Away Guest House is sure to become your home away from home while exploring the famous Garden Route on the southern coast of South Africa. Offering comfortable accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis, South African owners and managers Cecil and Colleen Harding are proud to welcome you to their Cape Colonial-style guest house.

Hide Away Guest House lounges at the edge of the Knysna estuary, hidden from reality by a small forested garden. With the buzz and excitement of the Knysna Waterfront and the centre of town only a short walk from the private sanctuary of your room, guests can easily explore and enjoy the many sport and leisure activities that Knysna has to offer.

The Garden Route is famous for its miles of pristine beaches, networks of sparkling lakes, acres of unique Fynbos and ancient indigenous forests and, as Knysna is centrally located within this natural paradise, it is the perfect base from which to explore the rest of this breathtaking region and the variety of activities it has to offer.

Let Cecil, Colleen and their efficient staff welcome you to their corner of paradise, but know that you’ll soon be back for more.

                      Everything was perfect. Colleen welcomed us and allowed us to check in earlier. She was so helpful with giving us directions and tourist attractions to visit. The breakfast was top class! Colleen and her husband were both very helpful and constantly making sure we were not bored. Wish we could have stayed with them longer. I will definitely return to their Guest House any day!!!

                      This is a very professionally run establishment with very gracious and knowledgeable hosts. Well appointed and a very nice experience. Stay here and spoil yourself.

                      We had a lovely stay at Hide-Away Guest House which is situated very well, just on the border of central town so within easy walking / cycling distance of all attractions, but without being in the main village. Colleen was very helpful with giving us information about the town and surrounding areas, and even assisted us with restaurant reservations. Breakfast which was served to our room patio was great. Room was comfortable and well appointed.
