This is a special place to stay in a beautiful location. The service from Ross and Bianca, the owners, to Ona and Milli the managers, and to all the rest of the staff is simply fabulous - they never take their eyes off the ball for a second. The rooms are large, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean - lovely touches...

My wife and I were so impressed with this gem, from spectacular views, modern design, convenient location, and the very best service we have ever received. Ross and Bianca run a very tight shop. Villa Afrikana scores a perfect TEN!

Simply world class experience from the first welcome to the end of our trip. Rosanno, Bianca and Millie run the most incredible accommodation you'll ever find. The kindness of all the staff, Beauty, Lovemore , Ona and Spich have to be singled out as outstanding, but that's mean to everyone else, sorry. Spitzkop suite has maybe the best views, but...

“Go for a top floor to maximise view.”

“The rooms are light, modern well equipped and provide everything that is needed. For an uninterrupted view over the Knysna Heads we would recommend either of the two top floor suites.Although I'm sure Ross or Bianca would inform anyone booking as to the views from the other suites.”
