Rosemary and Peter warmly welcomed us to their home on Leisure Isle in Knysna, and we had a lovely two night stay. The location itself is beautiful, very quiet, and a 5 minute drive away from the town for restaurants and access to the N2. The flat is very well equipped, with a balcony overlooking a beautiful garden, and with some delicious home baked goods on arrival (which certainly didn't last long!). Would recommend to anyone visiting Knysna for a day or two, and definitely take advantage of the proximity to the Heads for breakfast at the East Head Cafe.

This accommodation is absolutely superb! Beautiful views from both windows. We loved the balcony space overlooking the attractive garden. The rooms are bright,airy, modern and very clean, everything we needed was provided. Rosemary was very kind and left very nice goodies for us in the apartment. The location was lovely and we really enjoyed taking evening strolls taking in the magnificent views. We had an amazing stay and if we return to Kynsna we will definitely be heading straight back to Peter and Rosemary's.

Can't rate this place highly enough. If you're visiting this area you MUST stay here. Stunning location, beautiful house. Rosemay had plenty of tips on where to eat and visit. Left us beach towels and deck chairs when we said we were going swimming. This has been the most comfortable and relaxing place we've stayed on our trip. Tks for everything folks :)

Rosemary and Peter have created the perfect place to holiday with your loved one. It is restful peaceful yet still close enough to the beach (walking distance) and to restaurants and shops (10 min drive) The accommodation is spacious and bright with views of The Heads from window. The balcony is ideally situated, giving you both a wonderful view into the garden whilst protecting you if it gets windy. You will not regret booking with Rosemary and Peter. Truly a wonderful and unforgettable experience. Will definitely book again.

We had a lovely stay at Rosemary's place. The garden is beautiful and the room has its own giant terrace (with lawn chairs). Their home is only a five minute walk to a beach. The island itself is very calm and secure. But there is no public transport, so you'll need a car. We stayed there for 6 nights and used it as a base camp for day trips along the garden route which was perfect. Rosemary is super nice. Communication was very easy. Her recommendations for dinner and lunch were great. She was very helpful and there was even a fruit basket when we arrived. Thank you so much for having us!

My friend and I stayed at Rosemary's place for a week on holiday. It's a stone throw away from the Knysna lagoon on Leisure Island. It's a relatively safe neighbourhood, very quiet and the perfect place to visit when you're looking to relax. Rosemary was the perfect host: prior to our visit, she communicated clearly and regularly to ensure that we had all the information required. She also had a lovely fruit basket waiting for us when we arrived and juice in the fridge which was a nice, thoughtful addition to the package. I would definitely stay at Rosemary's again the next time I'm in Knysna.

My husband Peter and I have lived in Knysna for many years. Peter was a G.P. in Knysna and has now retired. We love the peace of Leisure Island, with just a short walk to the waters edge for a swim. We both play golf, the course is just two km from the island. Gardening keeps us busy too.
