It's a private little 1-bedroom apartment on the first floor, with a bedroom/livingroom, a kitchenette, and outside balcony/terrace at the entrance. Superb view...

A very pleasant guesthouse to stay. Jenny made us feel welcome immediately and explained where we could go to eat, using the view out of the window as her real google maps! Simple yet comfortable rooms and a tasty breakfast in the mornings. Did I mention the views? Absolutely beautiful! Well worth a stay.

We spent 3 nights on Chris' premises. He and his wife were very welcoming and friendly. We had the feeling that we are visiting some family members. They prepared the breakfast for us as for their own children. They explained to us what is to do around, they help us in discovering the area. We highly recommend Paradise Found as...

Accommodation was good and the friendly reception from Jenny and Chris will stay with us for a long time. Breakfast was good and the view of the lagoon and Knysna is the best in the area. We wish them well and long healthy years at the retirement village. God Bless.
