Kanonkop House – Luxurious, relaxed, boutique accommodation

Kanonkop House, awarded in the Top 25 Best Small Hotels in Africa, for 4 years running, offers boutique accommodation, relaxed luxury and personal attention – a home away from home. Gloriously situated on the apex of Kanonkop Hill with “The Best Views Of The Knysna Lagoon” and only minutes from the town of Knysna ‘Voted as the best destination in South Africa” (online traveler survey- 2022).

Each of the 7 suites at Kanonkop House are individually furnished and decorated offering fabulous private balconies and breathtaking views of the Knysna Estuary or overlooking the pool and indigenous gardens.

Upon your arrival relax on your terrace soaking up the incredible views before joining your hosts at the elegant guest bar or the stunning and unique new Forest Boma. Guests can look forward to complimentary drinks and our famous Gin cocktails. Knysna has many fabulous restaurants that we will gladly recommend and help book.

After a restful night contemplates the day ahead over a scrumptious Kanonkop breakfast served under umbrellas on the patio around the sparkling pool or in front of the fire in the dining room. Your hosts will provide insider tips on the best way to enjoy your day and make the most of the local area. Relax at the poolside, have an amazing in-house massage or head out to explore the natural beauty of the Garden Route.

Forest Boma – Our Forest Boma is a stunning unique new area that was created by the owners during Covid 19. Set in amongst a naturally built stone wall and our private beautiful indigenous forest, we have created a spectacular area to enjoy our famous Gin cocktails, wine tastings, food pairings and casual dining all the while being personally hosted by Mark and Adele. The Boma has become a firm favorite for guests to enjoy small functions and intimate weddings, or simply just the beautiful sunsets and starry evenings surrounded by a crackling fire and glass of wine.

Golf: Kanonkop House has corporate memberships at the stunning Pezula and Simola Golf courses and offers its guests access to these courses at reduced prices. Kanonkop House offers a complete golfing holiday by providing advice, booking tee times and organizing transfers or golf club hire at these and the many other golf courses in the area.

Separately to Kanonkop House, we can offer our guests a charming 4 en suite bedroomed villa-styled apartment situated on the water canals of Thesen Island. Waterside House is a rare gem and is built in the colonial maritime architectural style. The Villa is booked on an exclusive use basis, but still fully hosted where we offer breakfast and a full service daily. This villa is perfect for families and small groups travelling together. Walk through the front door into pure peace and tranquility whilst only being an easy 10 minutes safe stroll to the scenic waterfront and town centre of Knysna. The main harbour town of Thesen Island is a mere 5-minute walk from Waterside House. Here you will find an array of trendy restaurants and bars, an award-winning bakery and quaint boutiques.
