Home away from home
Marc Anthony Kock , South Africa - 31 March 2016
The room we stayed in needed a little bit of TLC but was very cute and comfortable. The thing that makes this place special though is the hospitality from the owner, the breakfast the next morning, the level of freedom and peace of mind from crime (really something amazing to experience), the surprise car wash and its location. Leisure isle feels like paradise with the picturesque semi-private lagoon looking into the knysna heads and the sunset makes it perfect for a little romantic time together. Love this place

Lovely stay, thoughtful hosts
Natasha Lockley, South Africa - 14 July 2015
our stay was lovely. The rooms well maintained and very comfortable. Tim was very thoughtful in ensuring a runners breakfast was available for us to have in our rooms before the very early start for the knysna forest marathon. Normal breakfasts were great and made fresh to order. We can definitely recommend Cuningham!

We would recommend this lovely guesthouse to anyone. Every need has been provided for and the breakfast is superb. Tim and his staff round your stay off with their cheerful friendliness and attention to detail. A most enjoyable stop-over and real value for money.
What a pleasure

It was like being overseas. No burglar bars and security cameras. Was fantastic to feel so free and secure. The staff are an absolute blessing. The owner just great. To be recommended for a laid back enjoyable time away from home.

We stayed at Cunninghams for 2 nights - had an excellent time. the guest house is lovely, modern, very clean and the rooms were huge! - well recommended. Breakfast was great with fruit, yoghurt, cereals, toast, pastries, bacon, eggs etc! The owner Tim was very welcoming and helpful during our stay. He can recommend restaurants and will also book taxis for you. The guest house is a 5 minute drive away from Knysna's main town but there are restaurants nearer.

Great value for money. Room was clean, well decorated, very comfortable and private. We loved the breakfast every morning - especially the freshly baked croissants! The island is very quiet and secure with a nice little beach looking onto the heads. Thank you Tim and staff, we will definitely return again!

Thank you very much – Cuningham's Island Guest House is a very relaxing setting which is well managed by very friendly hosts and guest friendly staff. It is also nicely positioned as it still is relatively close to Knysna but not too central.
