Fantastic stay at Prospect Cottage. Neville and Liz are wonderful hosts and spoilt us wrotten :). Cottage is extremely well fitted. From our arrival and welcome (where the kettle had already been boiled), to the sweets/marshmallows in the rooms to snack on, everything was beyond our expectations. Even the bathroom has emergency supplies in case we needed a paster or had forgotten a razor or toothepaste. I cannot thank you guys enough for the superb stay and comfort. Slept soundly after our month long trip to Natal and back. And as for the views from the lounge and deck - beautiful, relaxing and just what was needed. Extremely highly recommended and we will be back Neville and Liz. Thanks so much for your attention and professional touches throughout the cottage.

Wow, what an amazing cottage you have here. Right from our arrival and seeing the tremendous view we have loved staying here. We have visited South Africa five times and this is the longest we have stayed in one place ! We are so glad we did. Hopefully in a few year when we are retired we will be able to stay six weeks instead of six days. This really is the perfect home from home. Thanks to Liz and Neville for their help and tips and all the lovely little touches.

We have enjoyed our 4 weeks at Prospect Cottage. Your hospitality has been warm and welcoming. We’ve had everything we need and are sorry we don’t have a sweet tooth to enjoy and many treats. Though having said that, Dave took a liking to the chocolate cookies. We wish you well for the future and thank you again. Warm wishes, Dave and Ann

Dear Liz and Neville, We had a lovely stay at Prospect Cottage celebrating our wedding anniversary. Thank you. Buffalo Bay was a brilliant morning out. Knysna Heads to get a brilliant view. Nice pub restaurant just as you turn at the end of that road. ( East Head Café) The Waterfront is pleasant. Monkey Land and Plettenberg Bay both worth a visit. Thanks again. Jo and Phil.

Liz and Neville, We thoroughly enjoyed our time here at Prospect Cottage. In a strange turn of events, Knysna and Thesens, well away from my childhood California home brought back memories of home when I was young. It’s amazing how little decorative flairs or curtain prints can restore memories like they happened moments ago. The salty air and the crisp morning fog will hold in our minds with joy. The delightful details and thoughtful touches made Prospect Cottage feel like a little spot of home. Cheers and best wishes. Christi and Noah, California via Swaziland and Julia from Vienna.

What a privilege it was for my family to stay at Prospect Cottage. Neville and Liz made us feel very welcome and really thought of everything that we could possibly need, right down to the very last detail. This was definitely a first for us and we were very impressed by their hospitality. We have already discussed renting the cottage for the future and a much longer stay in Knysna. Thank You Neville and Liz! Lots of activities in and around Knysna. Excellent restaurants, and most importantly peace and quiet. What a great escape from city life!

Hi Neville and Liz, Just to let you know we have seen the weather forecast and as it's not great for tomorrow (and it's one of our last days in SA) we've decided to head off earlier and go to our next destination. We've had a wonderful time at Prospect cottage, what a wonderful spot - we saw monkeys in the garden today during our breakfast and the view is just amazing. Thanks for letting us stay and for all the lovely touches you thought of such as the tea tray and biscuits, marshmallows, toiletries in every bathroom. Also you're recommendations were great - we did the Jubilee walk yesterday and spent the morning today at Buffels. Bay, we're about to go on the Knysna heads boat trip too and have dinner at The Quays. Many thanks again, Susan and family x

Will definitely try to come back sometime.We were greeted by the owners who had even boiled the kettle for us and we were shown around the house. The house was very neat and tidy and there were even Easter eggs on the pillows in the rooms. We had a wonderful stay and the place is beautiful and in a quiet cul de sac. Tremendous views of the Knysna lagoon, and close to the main shopping mall as well. Very well situated as you come into Knysna but still close enough to go to the waterfront or Thessen Island. We had the most wonderful weekend; the owners of Prospect Cottage are such wonderful, friendly people. Great place to relax for a weekend or even longer. Would definitely think of going back there.

A view to die for and hosts who have thought of everything. Prospect Cottage is located on a quiet road with stunning views over Knysna Lagoon and The Heads, but is only a few minutes' walk from the centre of town and shops. The cottage really cannot be faulted: beautifully maintained with every convenience you could think of (and some you may not have). The beds are extremely comfortable, and there's two bathrooms. On a practical level the washing machine was particularly welcome after more than three weeks on the road. Neville and Liz do their best on your arrival to acquaint you with the attractions of the local area. Their welcome even extends to a bottle of wine, fresh ground coffee, milk in the fridge and sweeties in the lounge.

The Cottage was very comfortable,it was a home away from home with everything a person needed to be able to be comfortable and relaxed. We all hear about location location location,and beleive me when I say that you have got prime location,with the town and lagoon within easy walking distanc. I enjoyed the most beautifull views of the lagoon and surounding scenery which one has sitting on the outside deck, or even from the lounge area. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anybody.

Prospect Cottage is truly a wonderfully comfortable and homely place to stay. Liz and Neville have really thought of everything especially the small things that many people overlook such as a layed out tray with tea, teapot and cups for a much needed cup of tea after a long trip, the flowers, and a bottle of wine and fruit. The house was clean and the view very inviting. What a pleasure to wake up to that magnificant view every morning. Our 3 year old also loved the place and didnt take long to regard it as "his home" as the DVD player and TV made it possible to watch his much loved "Charlie and Lola" whenever he needed to. We will definitely visit again. The cottage is very conveniently located and only takes a few minutes to get to all the sites in central Knysna. Many thanks Liz and Neville

Hi Liz and Neville , Besides the fact that you are two of the most amazing hosts, your hospitality is flawless.We went to almost all reserves and parks in the area, as you suggested and the only word coming close to describing our experiences is " fantabulous" Prospect Cottage will not only be our most recommended in the area but also our personal favourite . Be sure to see us again in future! Neil and Essy.
