Budget Getaways Review

Set on the lush tree-lined street in an older part of Knysna, this double-storey home is fit for a fabulous family vacation.

Starting upstairs, you'll find the open-plan kitchen and the bits and bobs you'll need for your stay. The kitchen features lovely big windows that pull in loads of light.

Flowing from the kitchen is the spacious living area, which in turn leads onto the wooden deck under the trees. With comfy couches this is perfect spot to unwind with a good book and binocs - you might be lucky enough to spot the elusive Knysna Loerie.

The two bedrooms (Queen and twin) have plenty of cupboard space and lead onto a well kept outdoor area with a stone table and hanging garden. The Weber can be used down here or wheeled up to the deck if you prefer.

An easy five kays from the center of town, Syringa Tree Cottage is set away, yet close enough to the action. It looks like a lovely spot.
