Lagoon View Villa
Entire villa · 8 guests · 6 beds · 3.5 baths
Lagoon View Villa

My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups. Lagoon View Villa is a modern self-catering house situated in a picturesque countryside only 4 km from the centre of Knysna town. 5 km from the beautiful beach of Brenton on Sea. Walking distance to the Knysna river with good fishing spots and water sports.Set on a hill the farm offers magnificent views of the Knysna river and lagoon. It's more than just a space,its where memories are made.

What guests are saying:

“Very big and beautiful villa. Exactly as shown in the picture. It has everything you need. René is a great host that made everything to make us feel welcome! Thank you so much. The view is stunning but it is true that the villa is quite close to the noisy N2... we did not mind it too much and could sleep perfectly fine. The only tiny downside is the limitation on the WiFi to less then 1GB.... We had a great stay and can only recommend the place!”

What guests are saying:

“Our experience was above and beyond in every sense. Every detail was thought about from the fully stocked spice rack to the heated towel rack! Mark and Liz could run a college in hospitality. The view was breathtakingly beautiful. The bed was comfortable and warm. The kitchen had every appliance you could need. The bath had scented Epsom salts. The TV was huge and the couches so cozy with endless blankets. We didn't want to leave, actually ended extending a night! It doesn't get better than this. Thank you so much for a truly unforgettable birthday experience. This was so much more than just an airbnb accommodation, it was a luxury guesthouse and new friends. Can't wait to visit again.”
