Gloriously situated on the apex of Kanonkop Hill above Knysna, South Africa’s favourite coastal resort town, Kanonkop House offers unique 5-star boutique accommodation. Set adjacent to the family home, Kanonkop House commands a breathtakingly beautiful view of the Knysna Lagoon stretching all the way to the famous Knysna Heads. Each of the five individually appointed rooms boast unique and beautiful views of the surrounding area. The garden and small indigenous forest attracts a variety of wildlife and an abundance of birds – from the elusive Knysna lourie to the iridescent sunbirds and humble wagtails. Enjoy their antics while relaxing on a lounger next to the pool, before venturing down the hill to discover and experience all that Knysna and the Garden Route has to offer.
