Houseboat Myrtle is a totally self-contained wooden cottage on the water. Permanently Anchored in the Knysna Lagoon, it’s a two minute dinghy ride from the Knysna Waterfront and we’ll give you lessons to get you going on the water. Myrtle is one of the original Knysna houseboats and has a lovely wood finish inside. With its two decks, it’s perfect for lazy days floating on the lagoon. From the deck you can enjoy views of the lagoon, the quays and the Knysna Heads, catch fish or just relax...

The space
This is a unique location, giving you a wonderful way to experience Knysna and the Knysna Lagoon. The boat is moored in a permanent location, yet turns with the changing tides or winds, giving you the variety of the 360 Degrees views of Knysna from both decks. You can even lay in bed and watch as the boat turns and changes your bed view. So very lovely!

Guest access
If you are a guest on the boat, the boat and small transport dingy is yours whilst you stay. THe space is exclusively yours, creating your own private island in the lagoon.

Other things to note
There is a minimum stay of two days on weekends in busy times, sometimes, there is an unusual opening for just one night over a weekend, when a two day booking runs from a Thursday to saturday, or Saturday to Monday. This sometimes happens, and makes a one day stay possible.
