      home away from home and value for money. Will go back there.

      We enjoyed our stay at Prospect Cottage, which has one of the best views you could hope for and is conveniently located to everything. Liz and Neville were very welcoming and the cottage is well equipped. We loved the personal touches like cookies and rusks in the kitchen. Will definitely stay there again.

      Our recent stay at Prospect Cottage was most pleasant - Liz is a great host and left us with many kind personal touches, like a decanter of sherry, a bottle of white wine and a bowl of fresh apples. It was the ideal accomodation for a family, as literally everything one needs was there. The view from the lounnge is lovely and the balcony most welcome. Everything was clean and fresh, albeit slightly oldfashioned. It could do with a few modernising touches (stove, showers etc), but otherwise it was perfect.

      Stunning views from lounge and terrace. Walking distance to centre of town. Cottage very comfortable with lots of hidden extras eg. biscuits, sherry, even washing machine with powder. Very helpful and friendly owners, Liz and Neville. Excellent value for money. Would certainly return.

      Excellent location, beautiful view from terrace over town/lagoon/heads. Very close to the center of Knysna. Cottage itself was great; comfortable, spacious, good facilities. Satellite TV provides an abundance of channels, great for a wet day! Only two in our party, but would be fine for six using all accommodation. Home from home. Warm welcome by Liz and Neville. Highly recommend, good value for money. Would go back again for sure.
