Such fun!
Also everyone super helpful and nice.
Really beautiful place, suggesting to come early as check in takes a while (training and such).
Stay up late and sit on the roof! It's such an experience.
2 nights definitely recommended.

What a treat, the houseboat was in great condition and fulfilled, actually exceeded, all expectations as per their adverts. We had a fabulous time exploring the lagoon, Knysna and surrounds. We enjoyed it so much that we will be back. Hats off to the staff that were very friendly, willing and efficient.

A bit disappointed that only 2 restaurants open on the island on a public holiday.

Beautiful place, as backpackers it was useful as it's also safe so was easy to repack the car safely and leave the car with our things inside also.
