      Excellent self-catering one-bedroom accommodation for couples on Leisure Island, Knysna. The free standing duplex cottage is set in a lovely garden with views over the large communal green area on Leisure Island as well as the Knysna lagoon. It reminds us so much of the Lakes District in England. Hosts Shelley and Peter are super people and left no stone unturned to made us feel welcome.

      The well appointed cottage leads onto a loved and colourful garden providing a sense of peace and relaxation. But it is the welcoming extras that make this a special venue.

      We could not have wished for any better. We only wish that we could have stayed longer to enjoy the cottage and the surroundings even more.
