The Orange Lion Self Catering apartment – although situated on the premises of the Knysna Country House – has a separate entrance and is therefore ideal for longer stays.  The apartment has a separate bedroom with double bed and built-in cupboards, a spacious lounge, a fully equipped kitchen including fridge and washing machine and an intimate en-suite bathroom with shower only.  The lounge has an additional two day beds which can be made up as single beds for friends or family to share.  Situated on the ground floor, the apartment has a private outside seating area with braai (BBQ) facilities and is close to the guesthouse’s swimming pool.  Off-street parking available.

Wireless internet (bring own laptop), full DSTV, fridge, stove, toaster, microwave, kettle and cutlery and crockery for 4 are part of the deal.  Friendly, knowledgeable hosts (we run a tour company as well, and know the area inside out) and excited dogs are complimentary, while breakfast can be provided at the adjacent guesthouse at additional cost.

The Orange Lion is located in a quiet residential suburb of Knysna, close to both the Knysna Golf Course as well as the Pezula Championship Golf Course.  Through our sister company Platinum Golf, Tours & Accommodation, we have secured favorable rates with most golf courses in the area.

In the Garden Route and in Knysna and surrounds specifically, there is an abundance of things to do and things to see.  All the outdoor holidaymaker can possible want, from forest to lagoon to ocean and beach.

Should you not want to be in the kitchen all day, we offer braai facilities incl. salads, breads and sauces for groups of 4 or more guests. Just bring own meat or fish and experience those warm summer evenings from the comfort of your own apartment.
