A guesthouse is like any other house.  It has its own history, its own stories, its own people who live, work and visit there.  This blog is about what happens in the house, what happens with the people who work and live here, what happens in Knysna, and the Garden Route.  And every now and then about the people who come and visit.

This is where we share those stories with you, as you are part of the house and its stories as well…


  • Have enjoyed hospitality, great service and quality for the third time in a row!  Erik and Ypie arranged for us (...) golf (...) which was an unforgettable experience.  The pool in the beautiful garden was heaven on earth!

  • (...) We couldn't have chosen a more convenient and comfortable venue than the Knysna Country House. Lovely swimming pool. Large generous breakfasts with delightful and attentive staff. Also a very beautiful and peaceful location. (...)
