Kanonkop House – Knysna


Kanonkop House on the apex of Kanonkop Hill, enjoys elevated views over the Knysna lagoon all the way to the famous ‘Heads’ and the Indian ocean beyond. This five star guest house has a relaxed atmosphere and guests are personally hosted by the owners, the Conyers family.

The elegant guest bar is a warm and social meeting place and scrumptious breakfasts are enjoyed under umbrellas on the patio. The five luxury rooms are quite different in character, each individually named and decorated with quality fabrics and furnishings, enhanced by artworks of talented South African crafts people. Sumptuous beds, beautiful linens, fine finishes, comfortable seating areas and special touches make each room unique. Glass sliding doors open to wooden decks and terraces overlooking the indigenous gardens, private forest and superlative water views.

For families or those who prefer complete privacy a collection of beautiful private villas located throughout Knysna allow guests to choose to be on the water, in the forest or on the spectacular golf courses.  Days can be spent enjoying the adventure and excitement of this beautiful natural playground, golfing, strolling the nearby shops and restaurants, soaking up the sun on the tanning deck or relaxing under shaded loungers by the swimming pool with a bottle of chilled wine from the complimentary bar.
