This historic house is over 170 years old and is one of the original homes of Knysna.
Carpe Diem House has been decorated with flair and style. Our intention is to create a unique and comfortable space where our guests will feel at home, as well as being surrounded by beauty and colour.
The apartment is decorated with many original South African artworks, authentic Masai cloths, Basuto blankets, woven Malawian chairs and Ikats which provide an eclectic and sympathetic space in which our guests are able to unwind and relax.
Knysna is based in one of the most beautiful areas of South Africa and we are the perfect central base from which to explore the Garden Route and all its attractions. Carpe Diem House is ideal for a long stay as well as for a stopover on your way to the other delights South Africa can offer.
