Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Situated close to the Black Oyster Catcher pub and restaurant on the edge of the lagoon, it is just 2 minutes away from the Knysna Quays where you can choose between seven different restaurants. Fancy a cruise? The apartment is seconds away from the departure point for cruises to the Featherbed Nature Reserve, to the Heads, or through the Heads.
The stoep (terrace) is ideal for al fresco breakfasts or lunches, and for the evening braai (barbecue) a Weber braai is supplied. Literally five metres from the waters edge you could set your rod holder and watch for a nibble as you enjoy a leisurely sun downer!

The lounge area looks out over the jetties, past the yacht marina and the navigable channel down towards the heads. Depending upon the tide, there will either be water lapping the embankment half a metre from the lawn, or a stretch of sand revealed. Being on the deepwater channel, swimming is possible from the jetty on all tides.
The patio looks directly onto the lagoon, and many an alfresco meal can be had with a fantastic view.
For those who own a boat, there are two jetties at the property belonging to individual owners of two jetty clubs, and many are available for short term leases to Laguna Grove residents. Number 37 is a ground floor apartment with parking, and is situated next to the complex's own launching slipway. Number 37's patio leads directly onto the block's private lawns.
We do accept children under 5, however parents should be aware that the lawn leads directly to the lagoon so non-swimmers will have to be supervised.
The Western Cape region
The garden route is a beautiful region on the east coast of South Africa, between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. The area is littered with tourist attractions, including some stuning scenery and gorgeous vistas.
Located in the heart of the garden route, with direct access to the Knysna Lagoon, lush forests and adventure sports, Kynsna is the perfect location for an activity holiday or just relaxing.
There is a wide selection of restaurants, coffee shops and bars, along with a variety of shopping options from traditional african curios to a chic waterside mall.
With something for everyone, you can feed an Elephant at the Knysna Elephant Park, take a cruise to the Featherbed Nature Reserve or abseil off the famous Knysna Heads.
For golf enthusiasts there are a number of golf courses nearby too (http://www.visitknysna.co.za/knysnagolf).
