Discover Kanonkop House

Kanonkop House is a five star boutique guest house in Knysnsa on South Africa's Garden Route. Kanonkop House is beautifully positioned at the top of Kanonkop Hill in a private indigenous forest, overlooking the iconic Knysna Lagoon with exquisite views stretching all the way to the famous Knysna Heads and the Indian Ocean.

There are 7 spectacular individual designed and decorated suites with various views. The guest house is bordered by a lush garden and a small forest, which attracts wildlife and a plethora of bird life which can be enjoyed from the sunny pool deck. For families and small groups, the Kanonkop Team hosts guests at a selection of exclusive-use Villas situated throughout Knysna from the beach and waterways of the lagoon to the beautiful local golf courses. Packages at the Villas can be tailored for those preferring self-catering to those who require full hosting services.
