Since the apartment is right on the busy Main Street you can expect some traffic & street noise to be audible during peak hours .

Great apartment. Large, bright and clean. Mark was very responsive to all questions prior to arrival and flexible with our check in time as we were running late. It is on a noisy street, but this is accurately described in the details so it's no worse than you would anticipate and it didn't keep me awake. The main street was a little uninviting after dark and getting a taxi to and from the apartment is probably the safest thing. Overall would stay there again.

Great place to stay when in Knysna. Walking distance from town. Warm, spacious and homely. Only problem is no wifi/internet. This is unfortunately a deal breaker when you travel from abroad. Other than that - perfect!

David, Lesley, Mark and Mariska are the perfect hosts! We had great communication before we arrived and we're delighted to be their first guests through Air B n B. We were traveling on our honeymoon so the little touches when we arrived like the roses, chocolates and wine were hugely appreciated! The apartment itself is perfect, it is finished to a high standard and has everything you could possibly need and is on the main high street so close to supermarkets etc and also a short 5-10 (depending on your walking pace!) from the main waterfront with lots of restaurants to choose from! We ate in 34 Degrees South and the food was fantastic and had Sushi at Drydock (it's half prince on Fridays!). Mario's was also highly recommended but we just ran out of time! While we were in Knysna we spent some time looking round Theseen Island and did a Catamaran boat trip out to Knysna Heads. Overall I would highly recommend to stay here, Mark and Mariska live next door and know the town very well and have loads of tips and ideas on what to do and where to go! They are helpful, fun and friendly and we couldn't have asked any more from them. It was a pleasure to stay next door. We had a great time and look forward to coming back for a bit longer next time!

We Had a great Stay at David & Lesley's place. Situated in the middle of town, within walking distance of lots of shops and supermarkets etc. Beautiful flat with more than enough space. We also stored our mountain bikes on the balcony after the Karoo 2 Coast race, where the was more than enough security and space. Loved the outside Shower! Mark our host was great and very helpful as well. When the DSTV didn't work he was quick to come over and fix it. Everything was as advertised. The noise levels over w.ends do get a bit higher, but with the earplugs provided i didn't even know about it. Slept like a baby. Thank you for a great stay!

Beautiful apartment, has everything you'd need for a weekend away. Mark is so great and made himself available whenever we had a question or needed help. Pack warm clothes in winter! The owners are up front about the fact that the apartment is on the main drag which is great when you are partaking in festivities, fun to be able to walk easily to night life and great restaurants. If you want a very quiet, secluded weekend away - this may not be the right place for you. Very comfortable furniture and well equipped!
