Perfect place to stay for an amazing time in Knysn
Absolutely amazing stay.... Pemula lodge is the perfect place for a holiday in Knysna. With a spacious and well laid out room, beautiful balcony overlooking the stunning green garden and infinity pool.... you will not be disappointed at all. Rensia and Peter were great hosts and made sure our stay was as perfect as can be. I really enjoyed the fact that there is a communal kitchen which allows you to store your things in the fridge and warm things up in the microwave... everything is well thought of.
