Address: 26 Heron Way, Old Place, Knysna, Garden Route, Western Cape, South Africa

Acornhill is situated in the small historic town of Knysna, in the heart of the Garden Route. Voted South Africa's favourite town, Knysna lies on the shores of an estuary between indigenous forests, Outeniqua mountains and a breathtaking coastline. With so much to offer it is not surprising that Knysna is so popular with holidaymakers and tourists, and accommodation is often at a premium.

Conveniently situated 2km from the town centre & walking distance to the Lagoon Walkway, Acornhill is an ideal spot from which to explore this prime tourist area with all it has to offer (see list below).
