An entertainer’s dream with incredible lagoon views

Stunning views of the Knysna Lagoon, space galore, private pool and fantastic entertainment facilities for adults and children alike, make Eagle House an ideal holiday base for families and groups of friends.

The property’s location could not be better. Occupying an elevated but sheltered north-facing position at the top of Knysna’s Eastern Head, it offers uninterrupted views across the lagoon, Leisure Isle and Featherbed Nature Reserve to the Outeniqua Mountains beyond.

Arranged on 3 floors, Eagle House is comfortably furnished, very well equipped and offers flexible accommodation:

On the lower floor there is a self-contained apartment which opens up onto the deck and pool area - which sleeps 2 further guests.

The main residence can be booked on it's own or with the apartment - the apartment cannot be booked individually.

A door from the laundry area leads to an impressively large games room with pool table, darts board, bar, upholstered bench seating and dining table – perfect for children’s hobbies or family board games. This sun-filled room also enjoys marvellous views.

The 3 well furnished bedrooms are situated on the lower floor. The Master bedroom has a queen bed, plenty of wardrobe/storage space and large en suite bathroom (with bath & separate shower), dressing table and its own north-facing verandah.
