        Good Place overall”
        Nothing to fault really. Remote position offering beautiful views and serene settings. Challenging enough Mashe course and tons of out door activity. However wifi needs work....weak at the best of times and poor cell reception led to some frustrating working moments.....which may not be all bad to those wanting to escape!

        Very nice setting outside Knysna”
        First of all, it is a lodge. So do not expect the typical, quite luxurious South African guesthouse. Room was very comfortable, unfortunately a very small wardrobe compared to the size of room. AC very loud. Bathroom straight out of the 70s with not proper lightning. Definitely needs an update. Breakfast ok, but not sumptuous. Restaurant with limited choice, but ok. Most of the personnel very friendly, but some waiters were totally disinterested. Price/value ratio (compared to other guesthouses we stayed in) needs to be worked on.

        Quick visit, shown to our room, made aware of the pool , not aware of any other facilities. Room was clean and very modern on the inside with an open plan room , with a bed and seating area all together, which is quite understandable. Then there was a bath in the same room , lacking any privacy . The bathroom with a shower and toilet was only hidden by a free standing screen. Apart from the lack of privacy , it was a good size room . Just the layout lacked some thought. We had dinner at the lodge and the food was very good and reasonably priced. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. The Location was approximately 6km out of Kynsna on the edge of a forest in a very quite and secluded area.

        I really satisfied with their services!! They do really consider and care about their guests. Their garden was beautiful, they situated in N2 just before Knysna town. I was very impressed when I forgot my belongings there they kindly sent my stuff through postnet. If I visit Knysna again I would love to stay here again.
