GUEST REVIEWS

What our guests had to say about 191 Nirvana
  • I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our visit to South Africa and Nirvana in particular. We loved the peace, views, salads, dogs and relaxed atmosphere, and there is so much to do in the area. Before we left we did the walk you suggested in the Millwood (?) forest and swam in the pool - it was lovely, and so different from the rest of our trip - the hot dry lowvelt and the crashing seas & fynbos of Cape St Francis. I attach a photo from the cottage, and also, for comparison, a picture of where we were on Tuesday night this week in our campervan! We WILL be back. I don't know when. Our son starts a job in Vancouver in May, and our daughter and family keep threatening to move to Australia (which is where her husband comes from), so there are other places we will be visiting in the next few years, but S Africa will, I hope, feature again before too long. All the best and if you are ever in UK please come to see us, and enjoy some of the peace, if not the cool, of the Highlands of Scotland!
    Margaret & Angus Stayed April 2012, traveled with family:
  • We came with 2 families (5 adults, 1 teenager, 2 babies and 2 dogs) and stayed in the 2 roundavels for 5 nights. Everything we needed was there. Very spacious, a large fully equipped kitchen, lots of light the whole day and a fire place at night. The roundavels have 2 rooms each with satelite TV. There is no Wi Fi which didn't matter as we had IPAD with 3G card. The absolute top are the views over the whole of Knysna. The bathrooms have an outside shower with same views. Super! The pool is a little bit further which was safer for our babies. It's only about 7 km to town which is not too far. I definitely recommend this to the couples, families and group of friends.

  • We had 6 nights at this lovely location. We wondered if it would be a little remote but infact it was only a couple of mins drive to Knysna centre. It was so lovely there we didn't eat out in the eve as wanted to spend as much time as possible there. If you like golden retrievers you will love their company. The accommodation was large and spacious and very clean. We had a lovely salad brought to us from the owners garden each day. The owner lives in a separate house on the premises and gave us advice if we needed any but kept out of the way so we had privacy too. 191 Nirvana was one of the highlights of our holiday and we would go back there again without hesitation. We loved the outside shower as you had a fantastic view. The accommodation is for 4 adults and there is room for children up some steps. There was only the two of us so we had a lot of room. There are two rondavel we stayed in one of these, there is also a brick built building if the rondavels are booked. This is a place that you can truly relax in.
  • Excellent location on the top of a hill overlooking the laguna of Knysna. Just a perfect spot to totally relax and enjoy the scenery. Close to many really nice places, like for example Robberg Nature Reserve, Tsitsikamma (amazingly beautiful nature, and Plettenberg Bay. You wouldn't guess this location as it is hidden away and jet so close to everything. The accommodation was large and spacious and very clean.

  • We booked the deckhouse over a weekend for our daughter's 30th birthday dinner and had an excellent time. The accommodation and service from booking to leaving was handled in a professional manner and the service was very good. Will definitely return in future when the opportunity arise.

  • Two Swedish families stayed in the two cottages, with the new pool and braai (fire) facility, on top of the hill. View over the Knysna lagoon laying in the pool or sitting in the evening in front of a fire... High level overall on equipment and good service. Easy access and close enough to all necessary attractions around Knysna.
    Bo Junebrink, South Africa
  • We absolutely loved staying at your place over the past weekend!Despite the miserable weather, we managed to have a fire lit all the time to keep warm! Thank you for your wonderful hospitality! We will definitely come stay again! PS – Sorry Madi for bugging you so much.
