Knysna Houseboat Myrtle

  • Lowest Price Guarantee

From R450 PPS



Houseboat Myrtle is a totally self-contained cottage on the water. Anchored in the Knysna Lagoon, it's a two minute dinghy ride from the Knysna Waterfront - and we'll give you lessons to get you roaring on the water.

Myrtle is one of the original Knysna houseboats and has a lovely wood finish, both inside and out. With its two decks, it's perfect for lazy days floating on the lagoon. From the deck you can enjoy views of the lagoon, the quays and the Knysna Heads. The decks are also perfect for relaxed sundowners, and if you're up early you'll find the sunrise tranquil.

The houseboat sleeps four, with two double beds. The private main bedroom has its own deck. The boat has a kitchen nook with a stove and fridge, a hot shower and toilet. If you're not keen on staying in, the restaurants at the Waterfront are easily accessible. Late nights are best spent around the fireplace inside.

On a hot summer day, the best way to cool down is with a dip in the lagoon. The boat is also a great fishing spot and you can grill your catch to perfection on the braai on deck.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Guest Comments

We had an unique experience and my children loved it on the boat. Unfortunately, our car was broken into while on the boat. This of course left our experience a little tainted and security I think will become a big issue in the future, as there are criminals constantly observing the guests as they arrive. I think the Boat needs some touch up, things look a bit worn down.

My husband and I loved our time on the Myrtle!
Julia was happy to go the extra mile to ensure that our anniversary was special and that our time on the Myrtle was an experience we'll never forget.
We'll definitely be heading back soon.


We had a great time and will definitely think about booking again

It was fantastic! Something one must do at least once in your lifetime
