Perched high on the eastern head of Knysna, I could well have sat in a chair all day and watch the views - simply spectacular.

ABOUT Headlands House

Stylish bedrooms have private balconies capturing the majestic Heads and the Indian Ocean whilst one has a romantic view of the lagoon and mountains.

"Reference your request for a brief review of our thoughts re our stay at Headlands House in Knynsna, our experience was very good. We were treated very well by Lydia and Johlanda and had a lovely time. The room was very well appointed with a beautiful view of the Heads. The location is second to none and there is much to do around Knysna. The breakfasts were adequate and the service was very good. We would certainly stay there again and we would highly recommend this particular accommodation as an excellent place to stay in Knysna."
