Knysna is one of those South African towns, where nature, art, history, and adventure are beautifully intertwined. Built around the Knysna lagoon, with the impressive Knysna Heads on either side of the river-mouth, this small town teems with restaurants and coffee shops, numerous diverse adventure activities and a laid-back holiday vibe. The suburb of Brenton on Lake is a tranquil oasis. Lots of Yellowwood and Milkwood trees offer sanctuary to prolific birdlife, as well as the free roaming bushbuck. Breton on Sea is 4km away, with a Blue flag beach and a picturesque beach walk to Buffalo Bay (5.4km away). Another great walk can be taken along the cliff tops on Fisherman’s Walk, with scenic views across the Indian Ocean. If you’re lucky, you’ll spots whales or dolphins! Brenton-on-Sea also hosts a butterfly sanctuary, home to the famed Brenton Blue butterfly. Brenton on Sea boasts spectacular sunsets - enjoy a drink, or meal, at Brenton Haven's Blu restaurant overlooking the sea or at Nautical South restaurant, close to the beach. Other restaurants on the Brenton side of the Lagoon include the historic pub, The Bell, in Belvidere, The Oak Leaf for light lunches and, for fine dining, Pembreys. You hosts will be more than happy to offer further suggestions!

  • From the moment I made my booking,(which Lynda very kindly assisted me with as I booked so late) Lynda and Colin made us feel totally at home. Small touches like the chocolates, laundry liquid and essential detergents all just added to our amazing stay. We ran out of gas one evening and Colin came down immediately with a new cylinder. Beautiful views, beautiful home, would highly recommend and very close to brenton on sea.

    Naseema2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful, spotless and gorgeous place with an amazing view of the beautiful Knysna lake. Especially the view with sunrise and sunset is something not to forget. Thanks Colin and Lynda for a week to remember and we will definitely return.

    Our cottage is the ideal place for a peaceful getaway; capturing the essence of the Garden Route to create a tranquil sanctuary. The cottage is perfectly located as it is nestled into the Brenton woods and only a 10 minute stroll down to the lagoon where you can soak up the beautiful Knysna sunsets. The area is surrounded by breathtaking hiking trails which make for the perfect morning walk. The eclectic centre of Knysna is a 15 minute drive away and Brenton on Sea a 5 minute drive.
  • We enjoyed a lovely stay at Phillip’s place. Located in an incredible space filled with birds and bush bucks, the cottage was tranquil and very comfortable. The extremely well equipped kitchen made it easy to cook and eat at “home”. Little touches such as cookies on the counter and milk in the fridge welcomed us. I don’t want to forget to mention that it is an extremely secure location. We would definitely stay there again!

    George2019-09-29T00:00:00Z

    Aihisha2019-06-30T00:00:00Z

    Brenton, Western Cape, South Africa

    The Woods in Brenton-on-Lake is rich in wildlife and within walking distance of the lagoon. Brenton-on-Sea beach is less than 5 minutes drive away. My home offers two comfortable bedrooms (both with queen beds) each with full en-suite bathrooms (with bath and shower), open-plan lounge & kitchen, with separate dining room & scullery, WIFI, Netflix, weber braai, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, swimming pool, enclosed garden, under-cover patio, carport & alarm.
  • This place was amazing! It was the perfect stay for our little family with a beautiful home and beautiful backyard for the kids (and our dog) to enjoy. We wish we could have stayed longer. Sandy made sure we had everything we needed, and the house had so many thoughtful touches to begin with. Highly recommend!

    Blake2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Huge thanks to a Sandy for accommodating my family and I at short notice. The house is a 5 minute walk down to the lagoon and a 5 minute drive to the beautifully clean beach. There is a restaurant, bar and small shop located close to the beach. The town centre I’d about a 10 minute car ride away. The house itself has everything you need and more, quiet, safe location and we were sorry to go. You won’t be disappointed.

    Jane2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning space , SUPER comfortable beds and modern house in a very secure area, about 10 minute drive from knysna

    Brenton, Western Cape, South Africa

    Magnificent views across the Knysna Lagoon. Lake Brenton is a 15 minute drive from Knysna central. Brenton-on-sea beach is 4km away. Below Decks offers superior self-catering accomodation as a base from which to explore Knysna and surrounds.
    Well suited for two couples or one couple and two children. The lounge is equipped with three two- seater settees, looking out onto a large, shaded deck in a pretty garden overlooking the Lagoon. A gas or charcoal Weber braai is available for your use. The TV has full DSTV Premium channels and DVD player, and there is a large stock of books and games. The galley kitchen is fully equipped. There are two bedrooms; the main bedroom with lagoon views has a Queen size bed and large fitted wardrobes. It has a full bathroom with bath, shower, double basins and toilet. The second bedroom has a double bed, large wardrobe and en-suite bathroom comprising shower, hand basin and toilet. Secure parking is provided.
    Lake Brenton is a quiet suburb, where Bushbuck roam freely among the Yellowwood trees and bird life is prolific. Walk along the edge of the Lagoon, or even into Knysna across the disused railway bridge if you are fit. In Brenton-on-Sea( 4Km away) a butterfly sanctuary exists for the famed Brenton Blue butterfly. Great walks can be taken along the cliff tops on Fishermans Walk, or on the beach to Buffalo Bay.(5.4Km away.) Enjoy a drink, or meal, at Brenton Haven's Blu restaurant overlooking the sea or at Nauticus restaurant close to the beach. Other restaurants on the Brenton side of the Lagoon include the historic pub, The Bell, in Belvidere and for fine dining Pembreys. Knysna itself teems with restaurants and coffee shops.
  • Berry and Dave are fantastic hosts and gave us regular updates on things to see and do in the area. We loved Dugal, their golden retriever. The view from the deck is incredible! We loved having breakfast and dinner out there. The Oak Leaf Bistro & Deli down the road is really fantastic for breakfast and lunch and is kid friendly. Great walks on Brenton beach which is a few km's from the house. Do your shopping in Knysna or Wilderness as there aren't many options in Brenton. Overall we had a great holiday!

    Doron2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Below Decks is a fantastic place to base yourself while in Knysna. We loved being away from the hustle and bustle of the town and being able to relax while looking at the beautiful view from the deck. It’s only 15 minutes into Knysna anyway! The apartment is spacious and beautifully appointed with lots of thoughtful touches. Berry and Dave often popped in to ensure we had everything we needed and to offer suggestions and muffins! Try to visit Buffelsbaai if you like a stunning beach - our hosts have chairs and an umbrella that you can borrow. We had a brilliant time and we’re sorry to leave!

    Beverley2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Rating our experience at Berry and Dave's UNMISSABLE place merely as 'five star' does not in our view do them justice! A 50-star rating would be much closer to the truth, and we cannot recommend their exceptionally warm hospitality enough, perfected by an enthusiastic welcome from adorable 'gentle giant' Dougal, their Golden Retriever. We enjoyed a terrific fortnight at Berry and Dave's tastefully, beautifully laid out and comprehensively equipped apartment, where everything one could possibly have wished for had been provided, with countless additional thoughtful touches. The generous and most comfortable accommodation offered stunning and compelling views over Knysna, the lagoon, the hillsides and more distant mountains, both from indoors and from the superb (part-covered) timber patio. The location was perfect for exploring the area on e-bicycles, by car, and/or on foot, with Brenton-on-Sea a short scenic drive away (miles of pristine sandy beach and coastline, delightful (but too short!) Fisherman's Walk offering spectacular views and sounds of the sea below amid awe-inspiring steep rocks and vegetation. Only 15 minutes' drive away, Knysna's modern shopping centre with up to 3 hours' free, safe underground parking includes a Woolworths, a Superspa, coffee shops and a range of other retailers, with further restaurants and cafes along the busy adjacent Main Street (on the N2) and the more attractive, quieter Grays Street, which also comprises healthcare and dental practices. The Waterfront area a little further along Waterfront Drive is definitely lso not to be missed (free but limited parking) for a pleasant stroll alongside a mix of boutiques, restaurants, and cafes along the lagoon . For the more energetic, a fairly wide block-paved path (known locally as a 'cobbled' path) open to pedestrians, joggers, and cyclists, lines the busy N2 on the lagoon side from just before the Knysna bridge coming from George, to the main RH turning off into Waterfront Drive (leading to the town centre as well as Waterfront). You then need to put up with a short distance of 'ropey' pavement once in Waterfront Drive, but the 'cobbled' path resumes from the Waterfront and can be followed for miles towards the spectacular Knysna Heads along attractive scenery. Other recommended rides include Phantom Pass (several kms are on gravel, sometimes uneven/rutted road), and a circular route meandering up towards Simola, then climbing tor reach an undulating gravel road through gorgeous rural farm and woodland, passing placid cows and their calves grazing from the road, Guinea fowl, occasional bush buck, exotic birds and their delightful sounds, and majestic hawks. The route then traverses a vast expanse of conifer plantations, from young saplings to venerable, mature trees. The gravel road eventually rejoins the busy N2 on the Port Elizabeth side of Knysna, with an exhilarating descent past the forest border, a large township, finally returning to near-sea level. Waterfront Drive can be rejoind from the PE side of town, providing a perfect excuse for stopping for a cool drink or frothy cappuccino. Or... you can set out on a slightly more adventurous hike along the disused railway track from Brenton Lake to Belvidere where you can enjoy a cool drink at the very friendly, quaint Bell Tavern before walking back, unless you prefer the cop-out option of a taxi ride home. Though the railway track is well over-grown in places, there is a clear, well marked track throughout, on ballast, railway sleepers, sandy and earth tracks. Beautiful and varied floral and bird species can be admired along the way. Throughout our stay, we were always made to feel 100% welcome to chat, ask endless questions about the local and regional wildlife, history, places to go, things to see and do that coincided with our prime interests in and love of nature, walking, running (of sorts these days...), hiking, cycling, and we very soon felt virtually part of the family, without our respective privacy being compromised in the slightest. We felt most privileged to enjoy delightful and most interesting evenings getting to know Berry and Dave over dinner, discussing all manner of stimulating topics well into the night. Our conclusion? We are in no doubt whatsoever that Berry and Dave's outstanding combination of warm hospitality and superb facilities will more than tick every one of your 'essential' and 'desirable' wish list boxes - and many, many more you may not have considered. We could not recommend them more highly, so get booking without delay!

    Tanya2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with beautiful views and garden. Very relaxing and very Well appointed. Great hosts too!

    Andrew2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was a highlight of our trip. Everything is as great as described. Especially the beautiful terrace with a view of Knysna is breathtaking. Of course, our daughter also loved Doogle, the dog. Berry and Dave were great, helpful hosts. Thanks a lot!

    Hannes2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is exactly as described, with everything you need. Berry and David are excellent hosts, friendly and knowledgeable. Their house is in a safe area with beautiful views from the deck. There are no shops or cafés within walking distance, definitely not a problem for us!

    Jane2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • We got to know Berry and Dave as incredibly nice and helpful hosts. We received many valuable tips and additions to our daily planning every day. We immediately fell in love with this lovingly designed garden and sensational view. I have rarely seen such a peaceful place. Looking out over the lagoon from the living room and bedroom was very special. For the location, you have to accept that it is a corner away from the nearest supermarket or restaurants. Everything is there for families. We were very happy about the beach equipment with umbrella and toys and mats, we were able to use everything very well. However, we were happy that we had such good weather, the dining area in the living room is a bit tight. We mostly stayed on the large terrace. The beds were very comfortable and even equipped with electric blankets. We were there in November and sometimes it got a bit "cooler" in the evening, so we were grateful for a preheated bed :-). The apartment is separated by a staircase and a wooden door from Berry and Dave's living space, but we didn't really hear them. We were rather happy that our daughter is a good sleeper and that you couldn't hear her. :-) The dog of the two "Doogle" had done it to our daughter, a beautiful golden retriever, who was incredibly nice and didn't bother at all, you hardly noticed him, he was dozing on the terrace or drinking in the garden.

    Alina2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Dave and Berry (and Doogle) are wonderful hosts . Loved every minute of staying in their beautiful cottage. The environment is serene and after a long days work - coming “home”’was just so amazing. Thank you from both Collen and myself . I will be sure on my next travels to book again .

    The cottage is in a quiet forested area with bushbuck and many varieties of birds.
  • This was our second visit. I hope there will be many more. This is a place of supreme tranquility, beautiful views and a perfectly equipped house. The bird life is fabulous. The dogs love it. And I can launch my kayak into the lagoon for daily paddles. The beach is close enough and all the amenities of Knysna close enough for convenience, far enough so that you're not bothered by crowds.

    Paul2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • The most gorgeous little cottage on the lagoon. Fully equipped with everything you need and an added bonus to bring the fur babies too. We cannot wait to return.

    Brenton, Western Cape, South Africa

    Our park is super safe, child friendly and has easy access to the Knysna Lagoon, which is at the heart of all that is Knysna. We are 5 minutes from the stunning Brenton Beach, which offers walks both along the beach to Buffalo Bay, and the Fisherman Walk along the cliff top, with 360 degree views. Brenton-on-Sea has a magnificent Hotel which has a fine dining restaurant, Butterfly Blu and a Bistro. A convenient family restaurant, play park and small shop is also close by.
    Along the peninsula are restaurants, walks and several lookout points with spectacular views over Knysna and the lagoon on one side, and the sweeping bay on the other. Sedgefield, a small town about 20 minutes drive West hosts a Saturday morning Farmers Market, called Wild Oats - this is a must-visit market, easily the best of it’s kind in South Africa. Another superb offering is the Friday evening market hosted by the Montessouri School in Knysna between 16h00 and 20h00 - laidback live music, bonfires, food-stalls, picnic style al fresco tables and benches, with play park for the little ones. We have several walks, wildlife parks, adventure sports such as hang-gliding, zip-lining, tube-rafting, surfing, wind-surfing, fishing, and boating amongst others. Some of these are in Knysna and others en route to Plettenberg Bay, a very popular summer vacation town about 25 minutes drive to the East. Knysna Our quaint little town is extremely popular in season and out. Please go to have a full overview of the wide range of activities, restaurants, cultural amenities, shows, history and the like. We really have it all on our doorstep! But to just chill on your verandah, feeding the buck, guinea, ducks, birds, bunnies and the famously shy Knysna Loerie, may be just the way to truly relax and enjoy the tranquility our Park is all about. Your home from home has every amenity you should need and more - but if there is anything at all, we live in the Park and are happy to help!
  • What wonderful hosts Sandra & David are. From the first moment on we felt so well cared for, the cottage was spotless, the garden immaculate-what more could we have asked for ? Every request we made was met with a smile and dealt with immediately. We have been regular guests ( coming from Austria ) in their Paradise since 2013 . The bushbucks and bunnies are waiting for their breakfast every morning, the bird life from the cottage veranda is a dream, even the shy Loeries visited quite often. On the nearby Fisherman’s Walk we watched schools of dolphins on three different occasions. We enjoyed our many walks from Brenton-on-Sea to Buffelsbay on the most beautiful beach. Lake Brenton Paradise is aptly named-it’s Paradise ! Thanks for another memorable stay.

  • You can expect value for money, with all the amenities you could ask for. David and Sandi are superb hosts and really very friendly. We loved it!

  • It exceeds expectations.

  • We had a great time at Sandi and Dave‘s! I was hesitant about booking at first since there weren’t many reviews on Airbnb but I am glad we did decide to stay with them. The house was really nice and had a great outdoor seating area from where you can watch all kinds of birds thanks to the feeding station Dave and Sandi have set up. They had many tips on what to do in the area. They were also very helpful on a matter entirely unrelated to our stay with them - thank you again! We can definitely recommend staying with them.

  • The home is located right on the waters edge, literally the best sunsets one could hope for or think of. The home is so stylishly decorated and filled with all and very amenity one could think of. The house was spotless and and the linen and towels clean and fresh, the outside / inside living areas was the highlight of the house and the fully equipped kitchen enabled us to prepare some really good meals.
