Forest Hills is the perfect place for couples, families, and nature lovers to relax and unwind. We offer casual self-catering accommodation set in private indigenous gardens and lawns that lead to the natural forest. Paths from the gardens lead you to a short circular walk around the property through forest, fynbos, passed a dam, and a large lookout deck on the edge of the forest. If you are lucky you may catch sight of the bushbuck, boar, caracal, monkeys, and baboons that visit Forest Hills. The Knysna lourie can often be seen with a flash of red as it swoops along the forest edge and at times fish eagles call from up high. A true birders paradise.

Leisure Island, in Knysna ideal for strolling along the Island, jogging, walking, canoeing and just enjoying the beauty of nature.
The heads, beautiful scenery from the wooden paths/deck.
The restaurant at the Waterfront especially 34 South. Food was amazing!

Knysna Penthouses were closer to all amenities We had great entertainment and we were closer to the George mall for shopping. The room was very nice, cosy and cleaned up everyday. The owner was very friendly. I would definitely come back.
