Overmeer was the best B&B we've ever stayed at. The view was amazing, not to mention  our beautiful private room with a spa bath. The breakfast was on point.Will definitely come back.

A spacious, well lit and highly comfortable room with all the little extras. The view is superb. Best B&B we've stayed in in a while. Breakfast was average to good. Room was private and quiet with a lovely spa bath.

We were in Kynsna for the first weekend of the Oyster Festival and were fortunate enough to get accommodation at Overmeer Guest house. The staff, breakfasts and rooms were all excellent. Brilliantly run and managed guest house due to the friendly and efficient staff. The location of Overmeer is great in that it is secluded and yet it is a few minutes' drive to the center of Knysna.

Overmeer was exactly what we'd hope for. Peaceful, comfortable with very nice and modern interior offering everything we needed. The breakfast served was great and so were the hosts. Very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We'll definitely come and stay here again!
