Villa Paradisa is a lovely house with a stunning view overlooking the Knysna Lagoon. The owners and staff were very welcoming and friendly. The room was perfectly stocked with everything needed and very comfortable. The breakfast served was exceptional and presented beautifully. We would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful house in peaceful hilltop, bedroom with terrace to enjoy the breeze and the amazing views. Marylin & Martin are great hosts. Marylin makes time to assist and advise visitors, while master Martin creates top level breakfasts. Wont go elsewhere if lucky to come back to the area... Nana fatima and vincent from nigeria.

We booked this venue months before because of its splendid TA reviews. Its strengths are well presented but, for me, it has a few weaknesses not seen in the several reviews we saw. The building is as externally palatial as depicted but up a very steep driveway blocking final driving visibility on entry. The views are excellent from the property...

We stayed with Martin and Marilyn for three nights whilst doing the Garden Route. Their beautiful house is at the top of a hill overlooking Knysna lagoon and wow what views. Our room was well appointed, clean and also had a great view. The infinity pool was a refreshing place to revive after a hot day on the road and...

Tucked up at the back of Knysna with a fabulous view of the lagoon. Great room with huge balcony facing said view. Spacious, clean. Breakfast, personally cooked by owner Martin is a definite highlight - he managed to make our final breakfasts of a two week holiday very interesting from the rest. Very knowledgeable about local area and restaurants -...

We stayed at the Villa Paradisa at Knysna for 3 nights on our trip to South Africa and we were not disappointed. We had the Oyster Room which was delightful. Everything in the room was just right, mirrors, lighting and all the little touches that make such a difference to a holiday. Amazing views from our room, a great pool...

In every respect a lovely villa to stay to stay at. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Michelle the owner was absolutely brilliant when we had to change some aspects of our holiday. From the pool a brilliant view of Knysna . The only adverse point is that if you wanted to walk anywhere it would be difficult.

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...
