Candlewood is situated on a small hill with an enchanting view of the lagoon, Thesen Island and the Heads. It is surrounded by a fine tropical garden.
We would like you to feel comfortable with us. By our loving care and attention to detail we want to add our part to your stay on the Garden Route. Enjoyment and experience are the two essentials for us at Candlewood.
I have visited several places and guesthouses in Knysna – but I haven’t found one with a better view. “Probably the best view in Knysna”. Because on the lake side you view just flat, in the other hills everything looks so far.
Candlewood (or Kershout) is an indigenous species used by the first South African settlers for medicinal purposes and its fruits are especially attractive to songbirds.
The Koisan call it the ‘tree of serenity’ and we hope that its nourishing properties are reflected in the guest environment you’ll experience at Candlewood.
