Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This property is wow factor times three. Spent four days there with my family and was blown away by this house. It was beautiful, spacious, luxurious, but still had that comfortable homely feel.

I would recommend anyone to go.

Fabulous property in a spectacular setting

  • 5 of 5

We had the privelidge of staying in this very special holiday home recently as a build up to a family wedding.The house is extremely spacious and so well appointed,with wonderful privacy afforded in each bedroom and a fabulous lounge and open plan entertainment area overlooking the spectacular views and fynbos surrounds. The bird life was great , and the fact that you are far away from your nearest neighbor gives an enhanced sense of privacy. We didn't want to budge from this lovely place, but found lovely walks around the estate and down to Noetzie beach. The concierge service was also excellent and all the security and staff we encountered were exceptional.I can highly recommend this lovely home and would LOVE to go back and spend more time there!!

Fabulously appointed, beautifully private home.

  • 5 of 5

I can honestly say that the pictures under played this home... the house was actually better than we expected.... just a real shame it was not warm enough to use the pool. Fabulous bedrooms and bathrooms and a cosy TV lounge with the rest being open plan living. There was a second master suite and smaller lounge area which we did not use being a party of just 5 so we spent the entire time in the main living area looking out at the lovely view or sitting on the deck enjoying the sun.

Our arrival and departure were also very smooth and we soon got to know our way around the estate. House was spotless and the kitchen was extremely well appointed. Bedrooms were large with great linen and the bathrooms stunning with a jacuzzi bath in one and another with a double shower.... all large and modern.

My interactions with the owner were prompt and helpful. I even called her for a chat and that re-assured me that this would be a good choice for our party of three generations.

Will definitely use again should we return to Knysna. Thanks!

Paradise in Pezula

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from a fantastic holiday at Pezula. Kibanda is situated in the best location on the estate with wonderful views all around. The layout of the house is perfect for both relaxing and entertaining. The house is equipped with everything you can think of and spotless. The friendly concierge service was excellent and we felt safe, happy and relaxed at all times.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to unwind and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and when you can drag yourself away from the stunning pool there is lots to do - golf, spa at pezula hotel (highly recommend!), cycling, canoeing and horse riding, beautiful beaches to visit and so much more.

We liked it so much we are booking again!

Outstanding Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Kibanda is an outstanding home in a superb location on the exclusive Pezula estate. Large and extremely well appointed, the house has been well designed to provide great entertaining areas, balconies to catch the sun at any time of the day, cosy private areas and a dream pool. Everything is very well maintained in immaculate condition and spotlessly clean. Above all, it has been stylishly decorated to create a a very warm and welcoming atmosphere.

I would highly recommend this property -it is even better than the stunning pictures on the website! The owner provided excellent customer service with a rapid response to all enquiries and the agent on site was extremely pleasant and helpful. 5* in every respect - it was a real privilege to stay there.

Super Pezula House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6, including 4 teen-age boys, had a truly wonderful experience at Alison and John's property at Pezula in April 2010. We typically rent a few luxury villas per year in Europe,and this property goes to the top of the list, at fantastic value for money. The home is fully appointed, with great style that is "just right". The bedroom and en suites are elegant and roomy. The kitchen is super, and the whole home is spotlessly clean, and the services of a daily maid kept things tip top and sparkling.The view to the Indian Ocean is calming and all the facilities of Pezula, including health club, tennis and golf can be used. The tennis area is adjancent to where the French national team will train for this year's World Cup.

A great home in a great area of a great country....don't miss it!
