Regardless of the suite that will be your home during your stay, your hosts quietly stand by to ensure your comfort and there is always someone around to assist.

Stylish touches

"Pincushion Heights in Knysna is an absolute gem of a guesthouse! I had the privilege of staying for four nights in the Pincushion Room. From the moment I arrived, the exquisite views captivated me, creating a serene and picturesque setting. The self-catering rooms were simply wonderful, offering all the comforts needed for a memorable stay. The bed was extremely comfortable and I slept so well. I often am disappointed with the hairdryers at guest houses, but this one was really great! An added bonus is the fact that the whole property is off grid meaning that load shedding did not impact my stay at all!

The Fynbos garden is stunning, and added a delightful touch of nature, and the boma offered a magical spot to stargaze. Watching the sunset with a sundowner was pure bliss. The hosts were awesome, ensuring a quiet and relaxing experience, perfect for singles and couples alike."
