About our home

In the stunning little town of Knysna on the famous Garden Route of South Africa, this bright and sunny cottage is a lovely getaway pad and the perfect place from which to explore this incredibly beautiful coastal region. The cottage is less than 5 years old and is tastefully decorated with brand new furnishings including down duvets and 100% cotton percale bedding. It can easily accommodate up to 6 adults and/or children if the queen sized sofa couch is used in the lounge.
Knysna Central and Lagoon are less than 5 min drive. Buffalo bay beach is a beautiful 10 mins drive.
The cottage is situated in a fully fenced, remote accessed property. The main house at the top of the property was burnt down in the recent fire. The cottage (which is entirely separate to the main house) and the garden were however, fortunately left unscathed.
The cottage is equipped with everything one would need including WiFi and full cable tv. It does not have a formal dining area but the lovely weather in our area allows one to enjoy meals at the table on the sunny deck overlooking the mountains and lagoon.

More about us

  1. My husband Terry and I (Kirsty) have 3 children (22 and twins of 18) all of which still live at home. We live on a farm outside Knysna but have a cottage in town hat we usually let out as an Airbnb.

  2. Terry has a construction business which he has had for 24 years. Kirsty is Terry’s admin slave who is over worked and underpaid therefore the bright idea for a home swap holiday...

  3. We are a very fun loving easy going and adventurous family. We are exceptionally close and love to do everything together. Our ideal destination would be anywhere with loads of exciting and adventurous things to do
