About African Breeze

Grace and elegance define this perfectly positioned guest house. The world-famous Knysna Heads is within a ten-minute drive of African Breeze, with the lagoon only 100 metres away.

Boasting private entrances and garden views, contemporary rooms include fridges, TVs with DVD players, and a supply of tea and coffee. A free Wi-Fi network is also accessible.

Visitors have the option to rent a bike and explore the island in their own time, or ask the owners to assist with hiking, mountain biking, and whale-watching tours. Alternatively, guests can unwind around the pool on the luxurious loungers.

A delicious buffet breakfast is served in the cosy dining area or in the privacy of the rooms. Off-site options include Nadines Corner, a charming little coffee shop serving great lunches, 350 metres away.

The acclaimed Pezula Golf Club is around a ten-minute drive from African Breeze, as is the historical Grave of George Rex. The busy waterfront is about 15 minutes away by car.

Positive Reviews

A relaxing place to stay

Guests think that this Leisure Island area is a great place to stay. They love the quiet environment, and the fact that the hustle and bustle of the centre of town is just far enough away. The outdoor area around the pool is also considered to be stunning, especially in the warm afternoon sun. Sitting on the veranda with a good book is said to be just as relaxing and tranquil.

Lovely breakfast

According to visitors, the early morning breakfast is full of options, and more than enough to get the day off to a great start. They find the food is prepared to high standards and like the many hot and cold varieties on offer as well. Although everything seems to be scrumptious, guests go out of their way to point out the amazing omelettes as a true highlight.

Informative hosts

The owners of the guest house seem well versed on the many local attractions in the area. They don't hesitate to offer assistance when guests need help to plan the day, or when they need some additional advice on where the best restaurants can be found.

Negative Reviews

No air conditioning

The rooms are not fitted with individual climate control. Guests complain during the warm summer months of feeling a little hot and stuffy, and even though there's a fan to cool things down, they find it's not effective enough.
