    Preston was super! He recommended a wonderful place for dinner where we ended up staying for drinks in the bar and meeting some amazing local people. A fabulous stay overall!

    I did an early morning walk and watched the birds on the island before breakfast :)

    We booked at Cuningham's Island guest house as my fiance was running the Knysna Forest Marathon, on arrival we were warmly greeted by Preston who told us where our room was and about the well-stocked 'honesty bar' (nice touch), he also told us that my fiance could collect his breakfast the night before the race. An exceptional pre-race breakfast which included a bottle of water, an energy drink, a boiled egg, an oats-so-easy, a peanut butter bar, and a milk was neatly prepared by the guest house. After a fantastic breakfast (amazing scrambled eggs) I headed to the finish, to my surprise the car had been washed. The room also has a kettle with tea, coffee, milk, and sugar. All these small touches really made me appreciate my stay at Cuningham's island guest house and actually sad to leave.

    I didn't not like anything its more of a suggestion. I would've liked the room to have a small bar fridge.
