    Loved the service and location. Owners went out of their way to assist us. Carpets, cushions, hot tub all need updating. Office in middle of house unsightly. All easy fixes.

    Marilyn was a fabulous hostess and Martin was a wonderful cook. The room was larger than we expected with flower petals on the bed...nice touch! The view was amazing!! We plan to stay there again if we make it back to that area.

    Accommodation and views were fantastic and a great location. Breakfast with the personal touch was very nice indeed. Martin is quite a cook! The TV channels and WiFi in the room were a bit unreliable and it was disappointing that the hot tub wasn't available until the day we left considering it was in the advertisement. Overall a very nice place, thanks for having us and for your fantastic tips!

    In a stunning position in the hills overlooking the Knysna lagoon, Villa Paradisa is the perfect choice for seeing all that this area has to offer. Very spacious, comfortable and beautifully appointed with a fabulous breakfast (cooked by Martin the owner) served overlooking the town and lagoon - a great start to any day! The owners go out of their way to give their guests a good time. Highly recommended.

    Great views over Knysna

    Villa is high up the hill ( drive way is a challenge ) but then it provides great views over Knysna. Rooms are nice, well appointed and lovely bathroom. Friendly owners and good breakfast.

    Fantastisk villa där ägarparet också bor. Makalös utsikt och troligen världens bästa äggfrukostar som ägaren tillagar.

    Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen und man hat uns alles sehr gut erklärt und gezeigt. Die Besitzerin hat und im Voraus kontaktiert und für uns an beide Abende in wirklich excellenten Restaurants einen Tisch reservieren lassen. Das Guesthouse bietet alles was man sich wünscht. Das beste am Guesthouse ist der augezeichnete Service und die wunderbare Aussicht über die Lagune von Knysna! Diese kann man auch direkt vom herrlichen Pool geniessen!
