“My husband and I went there for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Lovely cabin in the forest with the most amazing views. The house was clean and had everything you need to be comfortable. It is centrally located for lovely day excursions. Would definitely return soon.”

“We had the most wonderful stay at Cabin 16 in the Phantom River View estate in March. It is a beautifully furnished and spacious cabin in the woods, however the views are what makes this place absolutely magical. The cabin has a blissful serenity to it that makes it the perfect place to unwind in. If you are in need of some serious R&R, this is the place where you will find it. Would go back to Cabin 16 in a heartbeat. Stacey at Absolute Getaways was a pleasure to deal with and she did so much to make our stay completely hassle-free.”

Albert Rossi (February 2017, Tripadvisor)
“Peach and tranquility at its best. Was here for 4 nights with our visitors from Switzerland and what a beautiful place to stay. So peaceful and awesome just to sit on the deck and watch the various variety of bird life settle on the trees and bushes while entertaining you with their various chirps and individual sounds. All this and still close to an abundance of amenities and attractions that surround the Knysna area. Cabin No 16 was well equipped and spotlessly clean. Will definitely come back here again.”

“This experience was one of those that you will remember for the rest of your life.
We planned this long weekend getaway with friends of ours that’s working overseas.
From the moment I inquired about Cabin 16 Vanessa from Absolute Getaway was extremely helpful in assisting with making the booking. The Cabins are secluded from each over and you don’t even realize that there’s other people around you. The views from the rooms, deck and pool where breathtaking. It’s one of those places that the moment you walk out on the deck and hear the birds you start relaxing and forget about everything. Cabin 16 it self is a spacious Cabin with all the necessary amenities. The Cabin was spotless on arrival. The fire place inside where handy on the cold rainy evening and the pool was used to it’s limits on the hot Sunny day. The DSTV ensured that the rugby wasn’t missed. We will most definitely be back there again in the future.”
