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!

We stayed here for 3 nights during the Oyster festival for the Knysna Marathon. One of the BEST views in Knysna! The hosts are so hospitable. They really went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Helped us fine a list for the Marathon ith other guests. The continental breakfast as so good I didn't even have... More

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. We... More

My family and I had 4 nights with Chris & Marcus. As hosts, they are wonderful & their property is stunning! We had a large family room with large verandah which had stunning views over the water - being on a hill above the town, the views were beautiful. The breakfasts are out of this world!!!!!

The only negative, was that we should have stayed longer than our 2 nights. Our hosts, Chris and Marcus were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our spacious room had a huge private balcony with a birds-eye-view of Knysna and the wide expanse of water. The breakfasts were incredible and definitely the best we had on our trip. Marcus gave us great... More

Just spent 4 nights there and already planning our next trip back... Chris and Marcus are incredibly friendly and welcoming hosts. Our family room with a massive balcony and a view to die for could not be better. The rest of our family were staying in Pezula and when they came to see our place, they had to admit that... More
