Knysna Country House – Knysna

Knysna Country House – Knysna


Offering stylish yet comfortable 4-star accommodation in a peaceful and leafy suburb of Knysna, less than 2 minutes from the Knysna Golf Course and not even 5 minutes from the Pezula Championship Golf Course, while Simola is a mere 20min. drive away.

The guesthouse offers both bed & breakfast as well as a self-catering options, and a variety of rooms to choose from. From the entry-level Standard Rooms to the more spacious and luxurious Luxury Rooms, and from the thatched Luxury Garden Cottage for our honeymooners and guests looking for a bit of privacy, to the Family Unit for families or friends travelling together.

The lush garden is home to a variety of birds, including the funky looking African Hoepoe, the colorful indigenous Knysna Loerie, the elegant Southern Double Collared Sunbird as well as the black and white spotted Helmeted Guinea Fowl which gave us the inspiration for our logo.

The large swimming pool, with the enticing image of the Knysna seahorse underneath the sparkling blue waters is inviting at any time of the day, and the comfortable sun loungers, complimentary bath towels and large umbrellas providing a much needed shaded spot may find you lounging by the pool all day…

Erik Ekkelkamp and Ypie Kingma are originally from The Netherlands, but made South Africa their new home in 1999.  They have been in the hospitality industry ever since, and look forward to sharing the secrets Knysna and its surrounding areas offer with you!

Imagine coming home after a long day travelling, playing golf or sightseeing, and either taking a dip in the pool or enjoying a glass of wine on the balcony overlooking Knysna town and the Lagoon as the African sun sets behind the majestic Outeniqua Mountains and you will realize you have truly found your piece of paradise…
