Guests have described our place at 5 star luxury at the price we ask. Loeries Nest is a small open plan apartment with small kitchenette and lounge all in one. You will enjoy our comfortable queen size bed and crispy clean linen. The couch converts to a rather uncomfortable sleeper couch if 2 persons book and choose not to sleep together in the big bed!
Towels and soaps all included. Also kitchen basics such as tea, coffee, milk, salt, pepper, sugar, butter, jams, bread, yogurt, cereals, fruit, a variety of snacks and fruit juices. (AND a bottle of red or white wine)
A 40" flat screen TV with all SA Satellite Channels is in the room for rainy days, if any. The apartment has an en suite bathroom with shower basin and toilet. A covered deck with patio furniture and a Weber braai/barbeque overlooking the garden is a great place to drink in the tranquility of our centrally situated suburb, aptly named Paradise
Off street parking in front of your apartment in a safe area with remote controlled access will give you peace of mind.
Guests are welcome to use our mountain bikes and if guests arrive by bus, we can arrange a guide at a small fee in our car to get you here and there. If you arrive with dirty laundry, our housekeeper Mary will wash and iron it for you at R100 a load. ( She also leaves a piggy bank in the cottage to hint for tips if she has delighted you)
We live on the property with our 2 dogs and 2 cats and time permitting, we love to interact with our guests. An exchange of culture and travel experiences is the reason we do Airbnb.
Quite secure neighborhood, ample bird life and easy access to town and great restaurants.
Though 2 nights are our minimum stay, visitors have commented that they should have booked for a longer period and explored the Garden Route using Knysna as their base. Plettenberg Bay is 39 km away and Tsitsikama with the worlds highest bridge Bungee Jump and the famous tree top tours is 80 km from Knysna. Wilderness and it's lovely beach and restaurants is 45 km away. Oudschoorn with its ostriches and the Cango Caves is 100 from Knysna.

Wir haben 3 Nächte bei Liz und Mark in ihrem wunderschönen Heim in Knysna verbracht. Wir wurden freundlich empfangen und fanden alles vor, was wir brauchten. Die Unterkunft ist noch viel schöner, als auf den Fotos und der Ausblick ist atemberaubend. Neben der freundlichen Wohnung gab es auch einen sehr gut gefüllten Kühlschrank. Wir haben eine tolle Zeit bei Mark und Liz verbracht! Danke!
Hi Michaela - we loved using Google Translate and it translated perfectly. Thanks for saying that our place is nicer than the pictures show, Liz has been asking for new pictures, and now its really time for new pictures to show off our beautiful place even better. Thanks for being our guest.
This was my first experience with airbnb as a traveller, and it was a GREAT one! Mark and Liz was extraordinary, and everything was set out for us to have a great time. The fridge was almost full with eggs, youghurt, milk, juice, butter, jam, fruit, cereal and snack. If that wasnt enough we also got one red and one white wine. The room is really great, and clean, and the pets on the property are so nice. I felt really safe and taken care of, and I would not hesitate to go back.
Hallo Liz, hallo Mark,
vielen Dank für euren freundlichen Empfang in eurem wunderschönen Haus mit einem spektakulären Ausblick auf die Lagune! Eure offene Art hat uns sehr gut gefallen, wenn man einen Wunsch geäußert hat - ihr habt ihn sofort erfüllt! Wir hatten bei euch ein "rundherum sorglos Paket" Danke für die schöne Zeit.
A lot of thought and generosity has gone into this high quality yet excellent value property. As well as being beautifully presented and very homely, everything the weary traveller could possibly need is provided from toothpaste to a welcoming bottle of wine and food basics. Hosts Mark and Liz are very good humoured and eager to make your stay a great one with lots of useful information to a some good banter. They even arranged for my filthy hire car to be valeted and kept in touch with ideas after I'd left. Highly recommended.
We had a great stay. The place was clean, the area peaceful and it made our trip memorable. Mark and Liz were amazing. Oh and the food, wine and perks in the room - this has been our best experience with airbnb yet. Recommended!
Knysna is a great location for fully discovering all the beauties of the garden route. The apartment itself is 5 star hotel service for an airbnb price. Mark, Liz and Mary made 100 percent sure everything was catered for including fruit, breakfast, wine a, tidy room, tips on sights to see and great chats. Highly recommended when you are doing the garden route.
What a view! great location a very short drive from the quay side where the restaurants were, good recommendations from Mark & Liz about where to eat and what to see. Great hosts who were keen to make our stay a relaxing and fun experience. We loved the room and especially that we could fix our own breakfast in our own kitchen and sit on the balcony as long as we wanted, good idea.

Airbnb has introduced us to some of the most considerate, kind and honest people we have met in our entire life. We can only offer our deepest gratitude to these guests who have become friends. We cannot live without friendship, sunshine, excercise, food and laughter.
Favourite travel destinations are Thailand, Mauritius, China, Indonesia and Australia (The East as its so different and our currency, the ZAR is worth something there - the US$ and Euro countries have not ben affordable to us. But soon we will get there with our Airbnb earnings!!!)
We love learning and exchanging culture with our guests, who we hope will always leave as friends. We are humble and accommodating hosts. We are always grateful and remain grounded in the following saying, " I cried because I had no shoes, and then I met a man who had no feet!" But most of all we welcome you as friends and its compulsory to smile and enjoy your stay.
