About Knysna Houseboat Myrtle

Knysna Houseboat Myrtle is a self-contained cottage on the water. Anchored in the Knysna Lagoon, it's just a two minute dinghy ride away from the Knysna Waterfront.

Myrtle is one of the original Knysna houseboats and has a lovely wood finish, both inside and out. With its two decks, it’s perfect for lazy days floating on the lagoon. From the deck you can enjoy views of the lagoon, the quays and the Knysna Heads. The decks are also perfect for relaxed sundowners, and if you’re up early you’ll find the sunrise quite rejuvenating.

The houseboat sleeps four guests on two double beds. The second bed is a convertable bed in the living area, next to the fire place. The private main bedroom has its own deck. The boat has a kitchen nook with a stove and fridge and a hot shower and toilet. If you’re not keen on staying in, the restaurants at the Waterfront are easily accessible. Late nights are best spent around the fireplace inside.
Please note there is a R350 charge per extra adult above two guests.
There is a R200 service fee for a one night stay

Perfect. The whole experience with tender boat etc.going to the water front and town. Perhaps not for people with two left hands but not rocket science. Lovely!

I enjoyed the experience but don't think the price is worth the adventure.This was a first time for us to stay on a boathouse so our expectations was set a bit high.  Just wish we were more informed of the facilities and what to expect on the boat.No secure parking had to trust the owners word that the vehicle is safe would have felt better if the vehicle was more secured.

The highlight of our trip to SA. Loved the boat, the simplicity of life on board, and the friendly welcome. Waking up to a new view each day is just priceless as the boat moves with the tides.Thank you!
