In Knysna we stayed for 3 nights at the beautiful Stannards Guest Lodge where Andrew and I had stayed before. We had booked the two luxury cottages which are situated on the side of the property and have a separate entrance and a private veranda each. Stannards Guest Lode is owned and managed by Patrick and Helene-Marie, a French couple that has travelled extensively which shows in the interior of the lodge. The guest house is located a only a 5 mins drive away from Knysna centre and offers tranquil surroundings and nature.
Each of the 6 double rooms is decorated individually and has its own entrance, private patio, full en-suite bathroom with shower and/or bath, television with DStv, free internet Wifi, tea and coffee making facilities.
There’s a very large swimming pool and the hammock in the garden invites you to relax, read a book and just snooze under the tree. You’ll find more details and pictures on their official website: http://www.stannards.co.za/
Patrick and his wife are always there to help arranging activities, restaurants and give advice what to do in the area.
Stannards is definitely one, if not THE best, 4 star guesthouse in the Knysna area if one looks at their prices and location. A superior double room including breakfast in the middle of high season is currently less than EUR 100 per night….!
