About Eagle House
Stunning views of the Knysna Lagoon, space galore, private pool and fantastic entertainment facilities for adults and children alike make Eagle House an ideal holiday base for families and groups of friends.
The property’s location could not be better. Occupying an elevated but sheltered north-facing position at the top of Knysna’s Eastern Head, it offers uninterrupted views across the lagoon, Leisure Isle and Featherbed Nature Reserve to the Outeniqua Mountains beyond.

Arranged on three floors, Eagle House is comfortably furnished, very well equipped and offers flexible accommodation. The main residence, on the top two floors, can sleep nine people in four bedrooms.
On the lower floor there is a self-contained apartment which opens up onto the deck and pool area – which sleeps two further guests.
The main residence can be booked on its own or with the apartment – the apartment cannot be booked individually.
