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...

Great view of the Knysna Heads from the hotel and our bedroom. This guesthouse sits above the town, a few mins drive, and for that it has great views across Knysna to the heads. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful - they saw to our every need even before you knew what you wanted! On arrival...

Friends who stayed at Villa Afrikana 3 years ago, recommended the place and I can honestly say that this is the most beautiful guest house I have ever stayed at. From the moment we arrived until the (sad) morning we left, we felt welcome and were treated like royals. The thoughtfulness, attention to detail and friendly staff make this place...

We stayed for 3 nights as part of our South African holiday and very different from a typical hotel. We loved these 5-star luxury villas especially the view from the villa balconies and breakfast served on our private balcony. The staff were most obliging. The only downside was that we had to take a taxi each evening to go out...
