Headlands House has been managed with uncompromising levels of service and attention to detail since 1999.  Apart from our stunning location, the emphasis is on personal service.

From the moment you arrive, we are available to advise and book wonderful day trips and golf, as well as recommend excellent restaurants.  We can also arrange in-house Massages.  We have our own on call tour guide, who  can take you on a personalized tour of Knysna town or on a romantic cruise on the lagoon.  And of course, we will gladly book these “treats” in advance, on confirmation of booking, to avoid missing out on what wonderful Knysna and its surrounds has to offer.

Crisp cotton percale sheets and rich fabrics throughout, as well as hand picked antiques, ensure guests enjoy the comfortable elegance of Headlands House.

Each of our six luxury en-suite rooms, with their own balconies, are individually decorated, with complimentary toiletries, bathrobes, a wall safe, DSTV, tea and coffee making facilities.  Complimentary WiFi is available throughout the guest house.

An extensive continental breakfast is served  including fresh fruits, yogurts, cereals, and delicious local cheeses.  In addition we offer a full cooked breakfast including
eggs of your choice  In the whale season, guests often enjoy a wonderful start to the day at breakfast, with the sighting of whales, blowing in the ocean below Headlands.  In winter, guests are tempted to wind down the day with a lovely bottle of red wine from our honesty bar in front of a roaring log fire, in the lounge.

Headlands is perfectly located to explore Knysna and its surrounds, as well as the many wonderful sights and activities that the Garden Route has to offer.

Many guests chose Headlands as there base to explore further afield, but also to savour the exceptional dramatic location that Headlands has to offer, and the sound of the sea crashing against the Coney Glen cliffs at night.  Our comfortable and cosy rooms are also the perfect backdrop for a romantic weekend away, a honeymoon or an anniversary celebration.
