Only minutes away from Knysna, perfectly situated in the Phantom River View Estate, you will find the magnificent Cabin 16. This is the ultimate in secluded, peaceful living with breath taking forest views! Perfect for a group of eight friends or family, this self-catering wooden cabin is spacious, comfortable and, simply put, a must-stay.

Cabin 16 features the most majestic deck that peers over the treetops and the valley, and ends in a pristine, perfectly positioned plunge pool from where you can gaze into infinity while you sip on cocktails. This getaway is an ideal entertaining house with its large living areas, fireplace and views.

The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a separate scullery and laundry for your convenience. The lounge boasts leather couch, fireplace, and at the other end, the eight-seater dining table. This whole area opens onto the deck through three sets of French doors to let in the summer breezes.

Upstairs are two main en suite double bedrooms, each with its own private door to the upstairs balcony, which overlooks the deck, pool and treetops. Then there is a third double bedroom and the fourth bedroom has two singles. An additional bathroom is nestled between bedrooms 3 and 4.

For those who love nature, especially lush green forests, and 270-degree vistas, this is the ideal getaway. And if you can drag yourself away from the deck, there are plenty of walks, hikes and mountain bike trails nearby. Brenton Beach, Buffels Bay and Knysna Town with its restaurants, shops and attractions is only a 10-minute drive away.

There are only two words I have for my stay at Cabin 16:


A place I would definitely go to again and also recommend to others. I thank you so much for the amazing experience. The place was extremely neat and clean, with fresh bedding and towels.

There really is nothing that we can fault at Cabin 16. It truly has been one of the best holiday accommodations we have stayed at. The cabin was so clean upon arrival and you have thought of everything possible, from heaters to fans to dstv. The bed was so comfortable and the tastefully furnished and decorated, we really felt that we were somewhere special.

Our stay at your cabin was above and beyond our expectations. We couldn’t have asked for better. The tranquility and the beautiful nature was totally breathtaking.
