This was our second visit to Paradise Found, by choice, so that should in itself say something... We chose the same (self-catering) room as previously. It comes well equipped, is well maintained, clean and modern. Quiet and secluded with very pretty gardens. And reasonably priced too. The owners are very friendly and helpful, you are made to feel as friends....

Wonderful stay, beautiful view and garden. Jenny and Chris are extremely kind and helpful people. We enjoyed a very tasty and healthy breakfast with yummy fresh baked scones, fresh fruit and juices. Thanks Jenny and Chris, we enjoyed it very much at the "Paradise Found" and will certainly stay in contact.

Quiet location, yet not far from the waterfront. Friendly and helpful owners. The best thing however is the gorgeous view over the lagoon from the room and the terrace. Room is rather small and should not be advertised as a suite.

The property is aptly named. The view from the room is heavenly. I could stay there in the room looking at the magnificent lagoon all day long. The gardens are very beautiful and have been well maintained. My wife and I were celebrating our 3rd anniversary and felt very much at home. Ingrid, Kirk, Chris and Jenny were very welcoming...

Jenny and Chris have a really nice house with an awesome view on the Knysna Lagoon. They are both very kind and courteous. The breakfast from Jenny is very good and you can enjoy the view from the balcony. Recommendable for everybody who wants to stay away from big hotels complexes and looking for a lovely private stay instead.

Hosts, Jenny &Mike were warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was comfortable and clean with stunning views over the Knysna lagoon. Everything you need for a self catering holiday is available in the apartment. Loved it and would definitely go back when we visit Knysna.

I had the most amazing stay here. I definitely should have booked longer. Obviously the first is the view, it is more spectacular in person. From the offset Jenny was very friendly and did her utmost to make the stay perfect. The only thing I disliked was the fact they promoted the terrible Knysna Elephant Park. Please if you go...

My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon road trip through South Africa. We were quite stressed when we arrived but the longer we stayed the more relaxed we became. Chris and Jenny are very friendly and the downstairs room we stayed in had the most amazing views of the lagoon. I wish I could wake up...
