Amazing stay and incredible breakfast!
Our stay was amazing, Mattius and Faith looked after us like family. The property is in a stunning location looking out over Knysna. The breakfast they serve every morning is honestly the best I’ve ever eaten! Every morning they change the menu and they have a massive choice of items to choose from! My favourite was the truffled eggs!

Garden route
Candlewood is in a great location with beautiful views the breakfast was of a 5 star hotel standard only down side is it was served from 8-9am and it was raining pretty bad while we were there so no need to be out of bed so early !! It’s a bit out of town but perfect if you have a car we used the local taxi service while there without any hassle.

Great little guest house in Knysna
Without a doubt, this is a perfect place to stay in if you decide to make a stop at Knysna. The hospitality was beyond imagination, the rooms are lovely and the breakfast was exquisite! The owners thought of every little detail to make the stay a very unique experience :-) Just a small note - if you make a booking, make sure you select the relevant no. of guests. We found that the price would have been the same for 1 or 2 guests if we had selected it in advance online, however because we didn't, we payed an extra at the property...
