Carpe Diem House is a historic house which is over 170 years old and is one of the original homes of Knysna.
The house has been decorated with flair and style. We intend to create a unique and comfortable space where our guests can feel at home, as well as being surrounded by beauty and colour. The apartment is decorated with many original South African artworks, authentic Masai cloths, Basuto blankets, woven Malawian chairs and Ikats which provide an eclectic and sympathetic space in which our guests can unwind and relax.
Knysna is based in one of the most beautiful areas of South Africa and we are the perfect central base from which to explore the Garden Route and all its attractions. Carpe Diem House is ideal for a long stay as well as for a stopover on your way to the other wonderful sites South Africa can offer.

In Room Facilities:

Apartment – Sleeps a maximum of 4 people

The character-filled one-bedroom apartment has a large private lounge and a separate additional toilet room with washbasin and large built-in cupboards.
The lounge has wooden floors and high ceilings with a roof fan. It is a perfect room for entertaining and relaxing. There is a double sleeper couch in the lounge offering a bed for up to two additional persons.
The bedroom has a large Queen-sized bed, with Sealy mattress, and ensuite bathroom (shower only) with toilet and washbasin. The bedroom also has a built-in cupboard and a roof-mounted fan.
The apartment has an enclosed veranda overlooking an indigenous garden. A Weber barbecue is available for making charcoal-fired meals which can be enjoyed in the original South African stoep.

Area Information:

Our home is located in the lovely oak-lined streets of the original settlement of Knysna. There are a number of historic homes in this area and our house was one of the earliest homes built
Wake up to the sound of birds - we have Egyptian Geese which love sitting on our roof and sometimes you may even see pigs in the street. Yes, we know it is a bit strange - but they wander down to our neighbourhood from informal settlements in the hills of Knysna. They are harmless to humans but can cause damage to plants. (Gardening can become somewhat challenging as a result!).

The house has excellent security and is located in one of the oldest areas in Knysna. It is up the road from Knysna's original Anglican Church, Catholic Church, and an evangelical church. It is walking distance to the Methodist and NG churches. (Sunday mornings you will hear the bells ringing from the Catholic Church at 8 AM.)

Property Facilities:

Carpe Diem Apartment: Private lounge/dining room/kitchenette.
The kitchenette has a 3 burner stove with oven, full-size fridge and freezer, microwave oven, toaster and kettle and a french press for making coffee.
All plates, cutlery and pots and pans supplied as well as comfortable and warm bed linen and duvets. Under sheet heating is also supplied.
Carpe Diem House has excellent security linked to an Armed Response Service.
We offer DSTV (South Africa's premier television channel offering the best of British, American and international programs and world sports coverage). We also offer high-speed WiFi.

Attractions:

The house is walking distance to town, shopping malls, and restaurants. It is central to all the attractions of Knysna and surrounds. The Knysna Waterfront is a leisurely 20-minute walk from the house.

This is a quirky place. I absolutely adored my room, the decor was lovely and it was very very comfortable. Michelle was away and I was hosted my her son who was polite and very well mannered. I enjoyed my stay and would stay again.

Superb. 5 out of 5
