About Headlands House Guest Lodge

Dramatic sea, lagoon and cliff views from every window. Uniquely situated on the highest point of the famous Knysna Heads, Headlands House offers breathtaking views.

Headlands House is managed with uncompromising quality of service and attention to detail. We will advise you on your day trips and ensure that you will get the most out of the beautiful Garden Route. Excellent restaurants, shopping, golf courses and local attractions are all a few minutes drive from the Heads.

For complete relaxation and comfort, Headlands House is the perfect escape for a romantic sojourn and an ideal base from which to explore the Garden Route.

Our luxury guest house in Knysna offers guests access to a private lounge, bar and a stunning cliff-edge swimming pool. Breakfast is a sumptuous affair, served whilst dolphins and whales frolic, or yachts slip silently out between the Heads.

Six luxury en-suite rooms, with private balconies, capture the majestic Heads, the mighty Indian Ocean and a romantic fairy-tale view of the Knysna Lagoon and Outeniqua Mountains. Crisp percale cotton sheets and rich fabrics throughout offers our guests comfortable elegance. A truly special guest house.

The view from Coney Glen lived up to all the reviews we read. The location of the house on the Headlands looking down into the beach is  ipanoramic. Neil and Lydia were charming hosts and made us feel very welcome. The room is spacious and the view from the king sized bath is special. Highly recommended.
