About Bayou The House @ The Heads

‘Bayou’ the House @ The Heads offers breathtaking panoramas. High enough up on the famous Knysna Heads for uninterrupted views over the entire Knysna Lagoon all the way to the Outeniqua Mountains and beyond, yet close enough to the waters edge to hear the waves lapping the beach below.
