Candlewood Lodge is light and airy with modern décor complemented by interesting artworks from Africa and around the world. It enjoys panoramic views over the Knysna Lagoon and The Heads to the Indian Ocean beyond. Our lush, well-kept garden features a sunny patio, large sparkling pool and spa. What better way to relax at the end of a busy day’s sightseeing than to sip a glass of excellent South African wine while gazing across the water?
Our many journeys have taken us around the whole world and throughout the entire African continent. We have fond memories of each place with their unique landmarks and impressive natural wonders. We have got to know people from all over the world who have impressed us with their hospitality. Now it’s time for us to return some of this hospitality in a special place. Just as the Knysna Heads protect the lagoon from the ocean waves we, too, are dedicated to offering travellers a place of calm and serenity.
‘Arrive as strangers, Leave as friends’ .Thank you so much for your hospitality during my first trip to Knysna! We had a lovely time. Accommodation very close to the center of Knysna. Great value for money.
The hosts (Ines and Andreas) really can't do enough for you and with their recommendations really added to the enjoyment of our stay n Knysna. The rooms and ensuite are modern and well equipped. The view from the shared balcony as fabulous looking over the lagoon and out to The Heads. Breakfast was not t b missed! Only negative was that the property is located just a bit too far from the centre for a leisurely stroll in the evening but taxis as plentiful and inexpensive.This is certainly a place I love came back to if we are ever back in Knysna.
The new owners, Ines and Andreas, were friendly and welcoming. On arrival, we were offered freshly made Iced Tea and shown to our gorgeous room (book the Sea room, the views are stunning!!) The little touches… water in the rooms, Nespresso machine & pods, nougat cookies, complimentary WiFi, kind offers to call and make dinner reservations, dropping laundry into town… all made for a very pleasant stay. Breakfast in the morning was locally sourced (jams were delicious and from the Farmers Market). I hope people do book here, it’s a lovely place and I would highly recommend :)
