Discover the unrivalled peace, tranquillity and luxury of The Private Guest House, a place where you can escape life’s everyday trials and allow yourself to drift from one beautiful day to the next. Set on the Southern Cape Coast of South Africa, in the very heart of the Garden Route, lies the charming town of Knysna. This is arguably one of the World’s most breathtaking tourist destinations.

Our spacious suites, thatched in true African style, are fully equipped. Satellite TV, digital safes, mini bar, coffee bar with espresso machine and lavishly decorated bathrooms are just some of the personal touches each room affords to make you feel more at home. Each suite also has it’s own barbeque area allowing you to enjoy the favourable climate here in Knysna…

Staying in one of our truly exclusive luxury rooms you will have access to our superb wellness area, the 14 meter heated pool and even a golf practice area providing the all-important warm up before you go off and play, complete with putting, pitching and chipping greens, sand bunker and tee net.

Dining - Our inviting dining room is simply then the perfect place to start to your day - or better yet, take an ‘extended’ sumptuous breakfast by the pool-side where you can let morning melt into midday. After your days activities there’s no better way to wind down than sipping a painstakingly made cocktail at our thatched African bar. The adjacent wine cellar proves popular with local and international visitors who enjoy sampling our wide selection of South Africa’s best wines.

Healty & Beauty - Our wellness amenities are just that - facilities to make you feel and look better. Choose from a workout in the fully equipped gym or indulge in a sauna, hot air cabin (39°c), infrared cabin (55°c), steam bath (100% humidity) or an aromatherapy experience. After your treatment there’s the invigorating cold water pool, waterfall and large outdoor heated pool with in-pool Jacuzzi to fulfill your wellness experience.

And of course, no vacation is complete without a tan that looks as if it’s taken weeks to achieve - here you can make short work of it on our sun bed. There are three types of convenient ‘in-room’ massages. Hairdressing and beautician appointments with trained professionals can also be arranged for in town.
