Paradise Heads self catering offers everything you need. Enjoy a cup of tea or sundowner on the balcony overlooking the Knysna Quays. Depending on which room you are in, it is spacious, clean and fairly quiet away from the main road. It is close to all amenities. Parking inside is safe behind a gate. The owners are very helpful and... More

Paradise Heads self catering is located directly opposite the Knysna Heads and offers superb views from the main patio area. There's free wi-fi and the wooden cabins are well equipped. The hosts are very friendly and offered advice on what to do in the area and even provided a BBQ so we could enjoy the lovely balmy evening. The only... More

Great clean self-catering place, excellent rates and service. We often send our yachting students there and always get good feedback. Keep it up Barbara and Eddie, we will definitely be sending more of our students your way.

I had the opportunity to visit the lodge as it is 3 star rating by the Tourism board but to my disappointment the lodge wasn't all that and not even 3 stars worth. My family and I checked in and couldn't even moved around in the room as every thing was crammed into 1 small room they say 4 sleep.I... More

The rooms were viewed prior to your arrival by another family, and on your arrival at our establishment I got the impression that you were happy as per what you were saying. Then I got a phone call saying you had to go back home immediately. On check-out you demanded your money back. You had signed our Guest registration form... More

Paradise Heads is situated just outside Knysna town in a quiet leafy suburb close to the main road. Our unit was fully furnished and stocked with all you will need for a smooth self-catered stay. Our unit had a great view of the bay, was clean and perfect space for two. We find the walls a bit thin and could... More

The view was stunning. The hosts were very helpful, however the room was not very comfortable. when the bathroom light goes on the most awful noise seems to be be turned on as well. It was the most iritating. I would definetly not have taken that room if I have not paid in advance. Good budget room for resting on... More

I have no idea how the guest could have had a noise when they put the bathroom light on in number 2 as it is only a light bulb, there is nothing connected to it that can make a noise. If it was so annoying why didn't the guest let us know there was a problem? If we don't know... More

I stayed there for 2 nights. The room was very clean and neat. The hosts were very friendly. I forgot my phone charger and they contact me to let me know that they have found it in the room. You do not get that normally. I am already planning my next stay there. It is good value for money. I... More

Very nice place, like the room we stayed in - view right down the lagoon to the heads. But please don't think that this establishment is situated at the actual knysna heads, its a distance away from the heads ( by the Total petrol station as you come in to town). The parking is a bit tight, but what i... More
