“A Home away from Home”

Reviewed 13 Mar 2014

Easy to find the address, spectacular view from almost every window, every possible convenience you might need is available and easy to find in the accommodation. Excellent mattresses, linen and towels. We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy Knysna and its surrounds, as we had such lovely accommodation.

“Holliday Jan 2014”

Reviewed 2 Feb 2014

My partner and myself spend a very pleasant stay in the cottage. We would describe it more like a house than a cottage, in a quiet street. Quite big, clean, well furnished, well equipped, full Dstv bouquet, and even a laundry room. Fantastic views of "the Heads". Neville and Liz were friendly, and shared excellent local information. We would definitely stay here again.

Response from the owner Good Evening David and Bev, Thank you for your kind words about Prospect Cottage . We are pleased that everything was to your liking. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We appreciate your positive comments. We look forward to welcoming you back to Prospect Cottage and Knysna in the future.

“We had a wonderful stay in Prospect Cottage”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2014

We received a very friendly welcome from Liz. The cottage was a home away from home. It had every thing we needed even more. The cottage is also very spacious. The cottage is about 5 minutes away from the Waterfront and it takes about 3 minutes to go to town. The view on the deck and on the 2 bedrooms is to die for.

Response from the owner Thank you so much for your kind review of Prospect Cottage. We do appreciate the time spent in completing the forms. So glad you enjoyed Knysna and Prospect Cottage and we do hope we will see you and the family back again one day soon. Best wishes for the New Year. Kind regards, Neville and Liz

“Homely cottage”

Reviewed 21 Dec 2013

Prospect cottage has a lovely homely feel to it. It is in an ideal location to explore Knysna either on foot/car. The views from the cottage are spectacular and we wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy it more. Liz and Neville have thought of everything you would need. The complementary bottle of wine, sherry and little chocolates were a lovely touch. And having the kettle and milk ready for tea after a long 6 hour drive was just what we were dreaming of! Great advice on local attractions and trips! We had a lovely stay and definitely hope to return to Prospect cottage and Knysna in the near future.

Response from the owner Thank you very much for your amazing review. We pride ourselves in making guests' stay special and getting great feedback like this, is awesome! Do hope to see you and the rest of the family again one of these days at Prospect Cottage. Kind regards, Neville and Liz
