Amazing.

Such wonderful hosts, bless them! They were so supportive and helpful as our trip was very short notice due to a family emergency. Melanie and John were over the top in making sure our stay was comfortable and we had everything we needed. The view is breathtaking and the accommodation was cosy and very clean. 5 stars from us! Thank you.

Kan dit vir enige een aanbeveel.

Baie lekker gebly. Die wooneenheid is gerieflik en baie mooi. Die gasvrou is baie behulpsaam om restaurante met spesiale aanbiedinge uit te wys en algemene inligting. Ontvang met kouevleis, sap, melk en brood in die yskas, asook 'n bord aandetes wat baie spesiaal was.

Can recommend it to anyone.

Very nice stay. The residential unit is comfortable and very beautiful. The hostess is very helpful in pointing out restaurants with special offers and general information. Received with cold meat, juice, milk and bread in the fridge, as well as a plate of dinner which was very special.

Rustig en veilig, moet net ry strand toe.

Baie lekker gebly, eienaars was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ons het dringend nog 'n verblyf nodig gehad, wat geen probleem was nie.

Beautiful uitsig, baie lekker gebly. Waarde vir geld.

Baie lekker gebly. Melanie en John (as ek sy naam reg onthou het) het baie moeite gedoen en het elke dag by ons kom incheck. Baie oulike mense en sal beslis weer daar gaan bly. Stunning views van bo af.

Wow, droom verblyf!

Pragtige, veilige verblyf. Melanie is voorwaar 'n baie vriendelike gasvrou. Ons het in die studio-eenheid gebly en ons was verbaas oor hoe goed die eenheid ingerig is. Die dekor is baie pragtig en stylvol. Melanie het regtig uit haar pad gegaan om ons welkom te laat voel. Die snacks ens., was 'n groot verrassing. Ek beveel regtig Mary's Window aan vir almal. Jul sal nie spyt wees nie. Daar is 2 eenhede om van te kies, die studio vir 'n kleiner groep mense, en dan die familie-suite vir groter groepe. Maar boek en gaan kyk en ervaar self hierdie juweel in Old Place, Knysna. Ons sal weer teruggaan soontoe!

Wow, dream stay!

Beautiful, safe accommodation. Melanie is indeed a very friendly hostess. We stayed in the studio unit and we were surprised at how well furnished the unit was. The decor is very beautiful and stylish. Melanie really went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The snacks etc., were a big surprise. I really recommend Mary's Window to everyone. You won't regret it. There are 2 units to choose from, the studio for a smaller group of people, and then the family suite for larger groups. But book and go see and experience this gem for yourself in Old Place, Knysna. We will go back there again!

Pragtige plekkie met 'n eienaar wat soveel moeite doen.

Die eenheid is baie netjies en Melanie gaan eerlik uit haar pad uit vir jou. Die eenheid self het alles wat jy nodig het en meer. Die plekkie is baie skoon en netjies. Daar is baie moeite gedoen met die dekor. Die gasvrou dink regtig aan alles om jou verblyf perfek te maak. Ons het ons verblyf baie geniet.

Owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The location, view, and general comfort was excellent.

The only issue we had was that the original unit we were booked into was up a steep flight of stairs. This potentially negative aspect was not mentioned in the advert, but should be mentioned. We would not have booked this unit if we had known. As I have just had a knee replacement operation and my wife also struggles with climbing steep stairs, the access was a real problem for us. After one night in this unit, the owner kindly arranged for us to swap to the second unit, which does not involve climbing stairs. Our comments above are based on our stay in the second unit.

Awesome.

We were delightfully surprised by the cosy cottage feel the unit had, it was fully equipped with high quality appliances and had everything we would need. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a beautiful view of the Knysna lagoon. We would certainly recommend it to anyone.

Hi Lindy Lee,
Thanks for your review, although we are perplexed why you have rated cleanliness as 4.
We take great care and time to ensure our accommodation is thoroughly clean.
We also went the extra mile to accommodate a 3rd child and provided you with a cot.
Many thanks & kind regards

Wonderlike ligging en goed toegeruste woonstel.

Nie net was die diens uitstekend nie, maar die woonstel het 'n pragtige uitsig oor Knysna en daar was alles en meer wat ons nodig gehad het vir 'n gemaklike naweek-wegbreek. Die ekstra moeite wat gedoen word met peuselhappies, lekker koffie en kaggel in die sitkamer, dra alles by dat Mary's Window definitief die moeite werd is om aan te beveel vir enige iemand wat verblyf in Knysna soek.

Great location and well equipped apartment.

Not only was the service excellent, but the apartment has a beautiful view of Knysna and had everything and more we needed for a comfortable weekend getaway. The extra effort made with snacks, good coffee and a fireplace in the living room all contribute to Mary's Window being definitely worth recommending to anyone looking for accommodation in Knysna.
