Guest Comments

The facility exceeded my expectations, the house is spectatular,have magnificent views to the lagoon. From the facility I could see sightseeing boats passing by in the lagoon It is value for money and I loved everything about the facility.

A dream come true ,the vacation we had at the Talesien and stay in Knysna has been rated as the "best we have ever had surpassing all the international trips we have made " words of satisfaction from my kids. .... Needless to say the place is absolutely stunning and fit for celebrities.

Sleeping-OUT is proud to be South African
