• REST INN KNYSNA “the rest is up to you”

Welcome to "Rest Inn Knysna"Self catering accommodation in Hunters Home, Knysna

Rest Inn Knysna is situated in the beautiful and established suburb of Hunters Home, Knysna, South Africa. You will be welcomed by a view of the famous Heads and the ocean as you approach the turnoff to the green and tree-lined neighbourhood.

Your private self-catering apartment, opened in December 2017, is one of the new accommodation gems of the Garden Route.  Perfect for honeymoons, business travel accommodation, or leisure, you will find all the amenities you require to guarantee your comfort.

Two beautiful bedrooms offer either King sized beds or single beds, guaranteed to give you the best nights rest. Waking to bird song, you can plan your adventures for the day. You will be provided with a map of the area, and some information on the wildlife and adventure activities available in close proximity. Knysna is a great stop-over for those travelling from Cape Town or the Tsitsikamma direction.

Pezula’s famous golf course and spa, Knysna Golf Club, Leisure Island and The Heads are on the doorstep. Simola golf course is but a short drive away. Magnificent beaches can be found close by, or take a drive to Plettenberg Bay, Keurbooms or Buffalo Bay to find some of the landscapes for which the Garden Route is famous.
If you are not a beach baby, a drive or cycle through the forests of Knysna would certainly refresh your soul. You might even spot one of the famous Knysna elephants which are said to still inhabit and roam the area.

The George Airport and town are approximately 60km from Knysna, and Mossel Bay just a little further.

The property is owned by Terry Cohen, the originator of the Cakes and Cookies method of baking “pictures inside cakes”. We might have met on a virtual basis already, as my tutorial recipes have made their way around the world.

I look forward to hosting you, and sharing my piece of paradise with you.
