St. James of Knysna Review

This elegant lodging is right on the edge of Knysna Lagoon. Outdoors you can enjoy a landscaped formal garden with tranquil koi ponds and a private pier with free use of canoes or fishing equipment. Indoors the setting is light and bright, with some lovely antiques. Most of the individually decorated rooms have uninterrupted views of the water. Bathrooms range from Victorian fantasies to a brick-tone retreat with a glass wall that leads to a private leafy garden with an outside shower.
