Thank you so much for a fantastic stay. We're obviously missing the view, fantastic breakfast, awesome coffee and the relaxed easy going vibe you have created in your beautiful space. We will be back on our next visit! Hoping for a few more days of sun to enjoy the pool and sun loungers etc

One does not simply leave Villa Mulligan without feeling rested, refreshed, and feeling like one has just won at least two more family members. Markus and Chris are a fantastic team, who make everyone feel incredibly welcome with their hearty and calm ways. Even the Knysna 'loeries' are attracted to this lovely Guesthouse, greeting all visitors on the porch every... More

The lodge is upmarket, located 3km outside on a hill. Car is needed to drive to a restaurant for dinner (5 minutes), the owner (Markus) made a great recommendation. The view is stunning, the rooms luxurious. Breakfast rich. Highly recommended.

Very nice accommodation a bit in the outskirts of Knysna (Kanonkop) but just a 5 min car ride to the town centre (which is not that spectacular BTW). Breathtaking views over the lagoon from the spacious deck/terrace surrounded by their subtropical garden. Rooms well kept, tidy and clean, all en-suite. All (most?) of them with views and direct access to... More

Although we only stayed for a couple of days Villa Mulligan was one of the highlights of our 3 week trip. Markus and Chris are two of the nicest people you could meet and they have created a little piece of heaven in Kynsna. Don't hesitate... just stay here.

Villa Mulligan is a guesthouse with a stunning view over Knysna lagoona. Rooms are very clean. The atmosphere is relaxed. The hosts, Markus and Chris answer your wishes/needs/questions before you had the chance to ask. At night you can look at the Milky Way and the southern stars a glass of local wine or scotch in your hand (no insects... More

We stayed for 2 nights only and we regret we didn't book for longer. Very well situated establishment with breathtaking view over the lagoon. The owners were very hospitable, without being intrusive. The breakfasts were fabulous. I strongly recommend it, and we would definitely stay there again! Thank you for making our stay in Knysna so pleasurable!

I stayed at Villa Mulligan 2 nights, the warmth of the owners was amazing; has that family feeling. From when I got there until I left everything was great; the comfort, organisation and entertainment. I can't fail to mention the view; overlooking the Knysna lagoon even though the weather wasnt great the view is wonderful.

We stayed at Villa Mulligan just for one night, but we wish we could have stayed longer. The place is absolutely breathtaking. We got the honeymoon suite, a rich and delicious breakfast buffet , a huge room with our own private balcony with a view to Knysna's lagoon, and a wonderful host (Marcus) who was very welcoming and nice.
