About our home

The log cabin is situated in a secure private estate perched high in the Phantom forest the views are breathtaking & nature feeds your soul. Catch 22 – so named for the miracle of engineering that facilitated access yet ensured seclusion – is about as home from home as you could hope for. Crockery & linen are quality & the little kitchen perfectly appointed. There are 3 comfortable bedrooms downstairs and a loft bedroom/TV lounge ideal for two kids. All bedrooms have a heater for those rare chilly evenings and a fan for those balmy nights. Bathroom has shower and sit bath & we encourage our guests to be mindful of water conservation. Knysna, a popular tourist destination is just 15 kms away with world class restaurants, shops, waterfront and beaches. This place is the perfect spot to unwind and take in nature and very popular with cyclists and hikers alike. The beautiful Simola Golf Estate and Spa can be seen just across the valley and day guests are welcomed.

You will have the entire cabin for you and yours. I have a self check-in system with a key safe and issue one time codes to each guest. I don't meet and greet but will come out if there is a need

There are some shuttle services available in Knysna and along the garden route but local car hire is your way to go in South Africa

Other things to note
In Africa our electricity supply is sometimes briefly interrupted but cabin is well equipped with lanterns, candles and an on deck braai/barbecue
