What’s in a name they say? Everything when it comes to de VIEW. Lie in your bed and have a view across the estuary to the Knysna Heads. The rooms are tastefully decorated and equipped with all you will need, whether traveling for business or pleasure. The personal balcony area can be used to enjoy your breakfast, enjoy sundowners with the incredible view, or another option as a workspace. The hosts, Dominque and Hans, are knowledgeable on the area and very accommodating to ensure you have a great stay.

Wow, that is all we can say. The moment we walked in to our room we were breath taken by the amazing view over the Knysna lagoon. Simply amazing and to have woken up to this each day of our stay made our whole vacation surreal.
We loved staying at de VIEW and the super friendly hosts, Dominique and Hans made sure our stay was fantastic with sharing ideas on activities and things to do in the area as they served us the lovely continental breakfast.
The rooms have a modern and spacious feel and we loved the extra length king size beds. We will be back!
