Houseboat summary

A floating home away from home. That's the best way to describe this . Be amazed by the great level of comfort and how easy these houseboats are to drive. 

Houseboat description

The Knysna bay is well known for the wonderful lagoons, great beaches, bird watching and fishing. And what better way to drive around in your private and enjoy this great area with your friends and family? All boats are designed to host 4 adults or a family of 5 thanks to the fore-cabin that has a double bed, the dining table that can be transformed into a double bed and the bench seat that can be turned into a child’s bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven, stove, fridge (electric), sink and all kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery.

Also the houseboats have a compact bathroom with a hot shower, chemical toilet and basin. All the required bedding is available, just as a cd player, captains book and all safety equipment (life jackets, fire extinguisher and first aid kit).

    It's magic to stay on this houseboat

    Knysna is truly one of our favorite places to stay, and we have stayed here 3 times before. Usually we rent an apartment but in this case we have decided to actually stay on the water. It turned out that renting this houseboat in Knysna was even better then we expected. The boat was very comfortable with all amenities you could need. And to wake up to the sun shining over the water, birds flying by and calling, is just great. And looking up at the sky that's filled with stars is just magical. We do plan to return for the 4th time and we'll definitely rent this houseboat in Knysna again!

    Fantastic hospitality and amazing environment

    I think the hospitality of houseboat owner Julia is just incredible. And the environment is truly unique and astonishing - the location can not easily be matched. Two words: peace and tranquility.
