The Garden Route

Kanonkop Guest House Location Map

Beautifully positioned at the top of Kanonkop Hill in a private indigenous forest, overlooking the iconic Knysna Lagoon with breathtaking views stretching all the way to the famous Knysna Heads and Indian Ocean, Kanonkop Guest House showcases the natural beauty that the Garden Route is renowned for.

Upon your arrival, relax on your terrace with a chilled drink before freshening up and joining your hosts at the elegant guest bar for complimentary drinks, before heading out to dine at one of Knysna’s many fabulous restaurants.

Each of the 7 suites are individually furnished and decorated, with private balconies offering either views of the Knysna Estuary or overlooking the pool and indigenous gardens.

After a restful night’s sleep, contemplate the day ahead over a scrumptious breakfast served under umbrellas on the patio or in front of the fire in the dining room on a chilly morning. Your hosts can provide insider tips on the best way to enjoy your day and make the most of the local area. Head out to explore the natural beauty of the Garden Route, or just relax at the guest house and take a dip in the swimming pool or have an amazing in-house massage. In-house activities including discounted golf, cycling, birding, hiking, kayaking and all watersports can also be arranged on request.
