When we arrivered, we were a bid disappointed by the room size since the pictures on booking.com were taken with a wide angle camera. Also that the shower was not seperated into a seperate room which was not indicated on booking.com. However, for honeymooners and couples this is a great place. The other aspects of Villa Paradisa were superb! Great...

This is the best Guest House I've visited thus far... The hosts (from the owners to the staff members) are the best. Having breakfast personally prepared by the owner was the cherry on top :) We so wanted to spend another night at Villa Paradisa, but they were fully booked. I'm definitely coming back! I highly recommend this guest house.

We only spent one night at this guest house as they were fully booked on the days we wanted to stay. This is the most beautiful guest house with the breath-taking views. The hosts, Mr and Mrs Van Niekerk are the best hosts I've ever met. When we got there we were orientated by a very friendly lady. The rest...

The room was compact but provided everything you could wish for - even a beach bag with towels. the bathroom was modern and the owners went out of their way to help us out with...

Villa Paradisa is located at the end of a tiny and quiet dead end street close to the top of a hill of Knysna's western hill. We very welcomed by Marilyn, who along with her husband Martin, are the owners. Marilyn took her time for a conversation (her English is accent-free, which made it very easy for us Germans to...

We booked 4 nights at the VP and were thrilled with the whole experience. Marilyn was incredibly helpful with the many requests we put her way which made for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Epic breakfasts cooked by Martin, and staff were very friendly and efficient.

This amazing guest house is nicely and privately located on the hill, overlooking the beautiful bay of Knysna. The hosts are very charming, we were fully enjoying our stay. Included is an amazing rich breakfast. We remembered us often - we had such a good time!
