The stay at Yellowwood Cottage was very nice, very clean.
It is really relaxing with bucks, geese and rabbits sharing the beautiful nature surroundings with you.
I can definitely recommend anyone to make use of these facilities.

Thank you for a wonderful time at Yellow wood. The cottage was extremely well equipped and super clean. It felt like home. We felt so safe in the complex and loved the birds, bucks and rabbits.

Thank you for an awesome time. We will certainly be back.

The stay was perfect, everything was perfect. We would like to say a big thanks to Cheryl for her friendliness and help. Sorry, we could not leave a note at the house as we had no pen. Once again thank you very much.

The Park is safe and secure with a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The town of Knysna is a 12min drive alongside the lagoon where you can buy groceries from if you are in a self catering cottage.
Within the park, there are 2 tennis courts, croquet courts, a swimming pool, kiddies play area, and a coin operated laundry on site, lovely lawns all about - and a mini-market within walking distance.

we stayed in a 3 bed roomed cottage, the cottage are set in a beautiful park-like surroundings where guinea fowl and a few bushbuck roam freely and the birdlife is prolific. The cottage where fully equipped with microwave, fridge, stove, TV, crockery, cutlery etc. and all linen was supplied but you must take your own bath/beach towels. You have your own private patio with braai area where the bucks and birds come to get some food if you supply them :-)

We enjoyed the stay, and would like to thank Cheryl for her friendly and much appreciated great service.
