Although the cottage is conveniently close to town, it is in a quiet street. We would definitely recommend Syringa cottage and I am sure I will stay here again when I pass this way."


"Lovely Stay"

(South Africa) Carla Cheyne | 19 July 2016

"Very peaceful. Accommodation was modest. Alan the host made us feel very welcome. Well equipped and location very central."


"Fantastic"

(South Africa) anonymous | 16 March 2017

"From the moment we were met at the gate, you could feel this is the right place. The owners have good personalities. The place is nice and very relaxing. It is almost as if you are a part of God’s creations when you sit on the balcony."


"Great weekend"

(South Africa) Antoinette | 5 October 2015

Thanks for a wonderful weekend!!"


"Quiet comfort"

(South Africa) Mrs Celliers | 18 April 2015

"Peaceful, quiet, lovely accommodation. We prefer self catering and being left to our own space. Attention to detail from relevant brochures to basic coffee supplies for late arrivals made it a most pleasant experience. Thank you Alan and Lesley. "


"Pleasant stay"

(South Africa) Mr Von Ruben | 15 October 2013

"Clean, comfortable accommodation. Will definitely recommend and revisit, the Garden Route is always a beautiful place to return to. Thank you for a pleasant stay."

"Stayed at Syringa Tree Cottage for 5 days in March 2013. Great location within a 5 minute drive of Knysna centre, close enough to be convenient but not right in the middle of all the traffic. The cottage was well equipped and completely detached from the owner’s house; also well away from any neighbours. Located in a very quiet calve sac of residential properties with secure parking (although the area seemed very safe). The owners Alan and Leslie were delightful and around if you needed any advice but, like any good neighbours, left you in peace. Great property in a great location would recommend and will use again.

"Nice Spot in the trees"

(Germany) anonymous | 26 January 2013

"We really enjoyed it at the Syringa Tree Cottage. It's a quiet place with a wonderful terrace where you can watch the birds (especially our friends, the hadedas!) while having a glass of wine. Very good kitchen. Very nice and helpful owners. We would stay again at Syringa Tree Cottage."


"A Great Base to Explore Knysna"

(South Africa) Rene Gomes | 30 December 2012

"We had an amazing stay at Syringa Tree Cottage. Alan welcomed us warmly when we arrived and he made sure we had all we needed in order for our stay to be excellent. The cottage is beautifully furnished and it is very private and secluded. Milk, tea, sugar and coffee were provided by the hosts and also a map of the area. Alan also provided a sugar water bottle which was put outside on the balcony and it attracted many local birds. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone in the future."


"Unexpected Peaceful Hideaway in Knysna"

"Our host and hostess, Alan and Lesley, were friendly from the first email contact, and gave a new dimension to the word "accommodating". The peaceful cottage under the Syringa tree did not disappoint, and we were delighted that a full kitchen was provided to enable us to self-cater. The restful balcony surrounded by trees and birdsong was the perfect place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine. After a comfortable night, we had breakfast on the balcony and were visited by a colourful Knysna Lourie (Turaco), the beautiful forest bird which inhabits the area.
I would recommend Syringa Tree Cottage to anyone seeking a restful home from home for up to four people. The living area is upstairs, so it would not be suitable for the elderly or disabled if they could not manage stairs. There is, however, the thoughtful touch of a security gate at the top of the stairs for small children.

"The Tree Cottage is a separate House in a very nice garden. It has a ground floor with bedrooms and bath and a first floor with an open kitchen, a living room and great balcony, where you feel like in a tree crown - We really enjoyed the wonderful sunset on it. All rooms of the Tree Cottage are very comfortable, clean and perfectly equipped. Upon our arrival we were greeted very warmly. So it was a great pity that we could only stay for one night. But I think we will definitely return in the near future. Thank you for the GREAT hospitality!"

"The accommodation is situated in a beautiful garden with a huge Syringa tree providing shade and home to loads of birds. The hosts are warm and friendly and go out of their way to make you welcome and comfortable. The accommodation itself is perfect - every possible need has been catered for. It is light, airy, very clean and the upstairs deck is the perfect spot for a sundowner. We spent four wonderful days here and will definitely return in the near future. Looking for a place that is peaceful and close to town - this is the spot to be."
